I´m a native Spanish speaker and graphic designer who enjoys sharing knowledge.I´m a really perfectionist person and a patient and adaptable person who pays attention to the special needs of each person and I think the best teacher is the one who knows how to express themselves properly and makes pupil understands easily. There are no bad pupils, only bad teachers.

Experience: I have been teaching Spanish for almost two years. My pupils have gained a really good level of comprehension, speaking and writing in Spanish, as well as typical Spanish expressions and slang.Contact this Tutor
You choose how the classes will run (serious or informal classes), rhythm of learning, what you´d like to focus the most (comprehension, speaking, writing, grammar, new vocabulary...). I´m completely adaptable.
Although I´m experienced in teaching children I´m open to teach to ALL AGES. Each one is different and has different needs and If you are motivated and enjoy the subject they can really learn from it.
Children are the trickiest pupils, they learn by playing games (depending on the level: colours-shapes games, vocabulary games, through art, reading stories...). Grammar, (specially verbs in spanish) is something that it must be learnt in time, having conversations as much as you can (mistake-correction). Good tricks that I often use are pretending I don´t really know how to speak english (so they really put effort in speaking spanish with me) and asking them to translate something in spanish to english and vice versa (so they teach me, and are motivated about being my teachers as well). This is my way for children. But if you prefer your children to have strict lessons I can manage it with homeworks: comprehension, writiting, and reading.
If you are an adult, the first thing to know is your level and needs. It´s not the same if you want to learn a language for leisure than if you need it because you are going to apply for a job.
A very important thing is to speak as much as you can in spanish and get corrected every single time (a good trick is to have a small notebook always on you). A lil bit of studying vocabulary, homeworks and reading twice a week should be great. Grammar is the same as with children: having conversations and making mistakes and corrections.
