My name is Raul. I am a native Spanish speaker from Mexico and have lived in Spain and Italy. I have been teaching all levels and my approach to teaching is to ensure that students feel comfortable and confident in a learning environment. I then concentrate on a communicative approach to learning and use authentic materials for them to learn from. I always ensure that the students learn through interesting and relevant materials that engage them in the learning process. This can be from the world of business to cultural events so that the students become interested in both the language and relevant issues that are part of their course. I am competent at preparing my own materials and exercises for courses and also to ensure that this is in line with the curriculum, as was the case when teaching at the university and state schools. Also when I created a cultural association I organized conferences and literature meetings to talk about books, discussions around issues and themes that were of interest to those attending. These meetings included film showings and book discussions.
I am available to help you in the development of your Spanish. It would be such a great start to meet you and to plan your lessons.
I hope that you will be able to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Availability: Avа;ilа;ble а;ny time tо; suit. I can be flexible.
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: I have over 20 years of teaching experience to a range of ages and abilities in private and state institutions. I have taught all ages from children to retired people and to all levels and abilities. I am therefore prepared for all eventualities in the classroom and I am very aware of how to deal with any learning issues.
I also prepared students for the official Spanish exam DELE (Diploma de Espaņol como Lengua Extranjera), and ensured that students were fully prepared and comfortable with the exam. I always take students through all the papers of an exam they are going to take and look at all the language skills needed. My experience as an examiner for the Cervantes Institute for the DELE exam means that I am familiar with official exams and the level needed to pass.
I believe that it is important students receive regular feedback on their progress in order for them to succeed in their studies.
