    Qualified and Experienced English/Italian/Spanish Teacher

    An innovative, creative and inspiring Qualified Languages Teacher and Translator of Italian, Spanish, English and Romanian.
    With a variegated ten-year working experience in different contexts, countries and with multicultural groups of students, I aim to offer a first-hand experience of what exactly speaking, thinking and reacting in a new language means.

    With excellent results, I fully exploit the potential of authentic materials (songs, short films, films, books, newspaper articles, literature) and drama techniques, which I had the opportunity to deeply research at the Institute of Education - University of London, and subsequently put into practice in the London schools for which I worked.

    My lessons are always student-centred, interactive, stimulating and related to real life, cultural situations and/or to exam requirements (GCSE, A-levels, International Baccalaureate, IELTS, TEFL, PLIDA, CELI), according to my students' needs.

    I place high value on mutual respect, cooperation and active participation, the use of humour and imagination.

    About Me

    Where and with whom did you train?

    I trained with the Institute of Education, University of London, where I had the chance to attended lectures and take part in international workshops ran by experts in Education like Dylan Wiliam - expert in Formative Assessment. Additionally, I carried out research on how to implement drama activities in the curriculum of KS3 and KS4 mixed ability groups of learners, so that every student in the classroom could benefit from an engaging worthwhile language learning experience.

    Tell me about some of your current students.

    I am currently teaching students of different ages, ranging from 8 to 65 years old, of different language levels and for different purposes: exams, leisure and travel.
    Do you have a personal message for students?
    As a teacher I aim to enable my students to enjoy a first-hand experience of what exactly speaking, thinking and reacting in a new language means. Adopting a different mindset enriches their perspectives on life and broadens their horizons. With excellent results, I fully exploit the potential of authentic materials (music, short films, cinema, newspaper articles, literature) and drama techniques, which I had the opportunity to deeply research at the Institute of Education and subsequently put into practice in the London schools for which I worked.

    My lessons are always student-centred, interactive, stimulating and related to real life, cultural situations and/or to exam requirements (GCSE, IGCSE, A-levels, International Baccalaureate, Pre-U, IELTS, TEFL), according to students' needs.

    I place high value on mutual respect, cooperation and active participation, the use of humour and imagination. Since I am very ambitious, determined and have high expectations, my students and I always work arduously and achieve our objectives.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have a variegated 11 years teaching experience with multicultural groups of students from different countries and backgrounds, in different contexts (schools, private companies, NGOs) and for different purposes (exams, leisure, business).
    Both the formal and informal teaching experiences have equally and valuably contributed to my formation as a well-rounded professional. If the classroom teaching enabled me to see pupils as a unique community where respect for each other’s learning pace, collaboration and active participation are at the core, private teaching refined my attention to students’ individual needs, interests, expectations and learning styles and allowed me to consistently apply and improve my ability to assess their progress, give constructive feedback, set realistic short and long-term targets and liaise with demanding parents.

    Marianna
    Experienced Tutor of Italian and English as a Second language
    I am a tutor of Italian and English as a foreign/second language. I had the opportunity to teach in different contexts with multicultural groups of students from many countries and backgrounds. I am currently teaching Italian to individual students and corporate clients with different language requirements and purposes. I have also conducted a preparation course for Italian GCSE and A level exams in London. I teach to all levels and ages using a communicative and student-centred approach. My lessons are very interactive and focused on real life and cultural situations. I care about my students’ learning progress and achievements and I am keen to guide them in a friendly, dedicated and respectful manner. Moreover, one of my main goals as a teacher is to enable my students to enjoy the experience of communicating, thinking and reacting in a foreign language.

    Are you looking for help to write your essays? I am happy to help you!
    Hello, My name is Daniel López. I am a very passionate and creative teacher (English & Spanish) I have experience in different contexts and backgrounds (Teaching teenagers, and University students) I feel very lucky in the sense that I really love what I do. I love teaching!! I hold a Ba degree on TEFL (English Language Teaching), and and a Ma degree on TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at University of Leicester, England. Additionally, I must mention that I am strongly influenced by the CLT approach and critical thinking models. In other words, I consider that teaching a language must focus not only in grammar and vocabulary but also in communication and interaction. Therefore, speaking, pronunciation, and everything related to the phonological aspect of languages is my interest. Additionally, I would like to outstand the fact that I always work with clear purposes and organized lesson plans, and usually I create my own material in order to achieve specific purposes during the lesson, and because this allows me to be creative and accommodate any topic to your needs and interests. If you need any tutoring in this field, do not hesitate in contacting me! Have a great day.

    Italian language: speaking practice and grammatical guidelines
    I have taught Italian, History and Philosophy for many years in the Italian State schools. Now I am attending a PhD at KCL.. In my classes I can meet the requests of both the student who wants to practice the language in a guided conversation, an the student who wants a more formal course where he/she can learn proper grammatical structures. In both cases , depending on the availability of the student, I can assign homework , which I will correct during the following lesson.

    Spanish by a native Spanish speaker. Begginers and advanced students
    I am a native Spanish and History teacher currently living in London. I have been and I am a language student. As a result of that, I know how to solve the main problems and difficulties that language students have. Homework is just an option depending on the level, but I strongly recomend some films and books during the experience.

    Natalia
    Private Spanish (A Level) and French (GCSE level) tutor.
    Hello, everybody! My name is Natalia. I am a native Spanish woman who loves teaching and learning new languages. I studied the degree on Translation and Interpreting in Seville (English and French) and this allowed me not only to learn both languages but also to travel and live 1 year in Paris and 3 years in London. I have been working as a private tutor since I was a university and I loved it. I love that moment in which your students or their parents come back to you to thank you for finally passing their exams and with good grades. I also have a wide experience with children as I have been working as a nanny since I moved to London in 2014. In general, I am very organised. I am a bit strict but only because I know If I push you a bit and I make you to effort, you will get the results you want and at the end of the day, we all will be happy.
