¡Hola a todos! Im from Valladolid, Spain. I have obtained my Bachelor Degree in Classical Piano in Musikene (San Sebastian, Basque Country). I have experience accompanying different instruments, like saxophone recently in a Masterclass with Arno Bornkamp in the Royal College of Music.
In addition I studied during two years in the UVa (University of Valladolid) the Bachelor Degree of History and Science of Music.
I enjoy teaching students of all ages and all levels!
I am a very patient and responsible person, and I am very good making easy and clear explanations about more complicated things. In my opinion, the speaking practice of a language is the key to improve your level, and everybody says that the best Spanish is spoken in Valladolid, my city )
Availability: I am open to any time of class, weekends included!
Willing to travel: 8 miles
Experience: I have plenty of teaching experience.
I have just finished my Trainee Period of my Teaching Masters in the Spanish School in Portobello Road.
Since I was 17 years old, I have been teaching students of very different ages (from 7 to 16 years old) and some adults. Besides, I have taught people with special learning process difficulties. I have experience teaching Spanish, Music and History and I also have lots of attitude to work!
Speaking about learning a new language, I personally think that a lot of times are more helpful to translate a complete phrase or expression than thinking in the translation word by word. The knowledge of these expressions and phrases could help to make the translation automatically, giving a more fluent speaking.
I am friendly and personable with my students, and as I get to know them personally, they feel more comfortable and relaxed in their learning process.
In the past I helped students with their homework, but I always motivated them to think by themselves in their answers.
