Native Spanish teacher, DELE and SIELE examiner
Hi. My name is Bea, I am a Spanish teacher from Toledo, a city in the center of Spain, near Madrid, so I am a native speaker and I have a neutral Spanish accent. Besides, I am a DELE examiner from Cervantes and I have experience preparing students for SIELE and DELE exams (A1-C2 levels).
I have more than 15 years of experience giving private lessons. I lived in England for 7 years and I taught Spanish as a first language to Spanish students who were living in England so they could improve their mother tongue and I have taught Spanish as a second language to students from different international countries such as Scotland, England, Poland, Russia, Turkey, India, Bosnia, Ukraine, Italy, Letonia, United States or South Africa.
I use different methods according to my students' interests and backgrounds. I have so many resources and materials already from my years of experience, for example, we could watch a short video in relation to the present topic, listen to a song to improve the listening skill or focus on traveling vocabulary doing role-plays. I don't follow only one book. I like to have a guide about what the student would like to improve or to learn and from there I will give different materials. I prepare my students to get a CEFR level, to learn and focus on a specific topic, grammar, vocabulary for work, to learn a language to travel abroad or just to improve the language.
We can learn Spanish together and at the same time we can learn about Spanish culture: learning about different places to visit in Spain, knowing how to buy food in Spanish to prepare delicious recipes from different places in Spain or getting the vocabulary and structures to be able to order your lunch when you go to a restaurant.
I will prepare the lessons according to your needs, showing you tricks to learn or remember specific Spanish grammar. We can have a long-term course to learn at your pace. I also offer intensive courses to get ready for an exam or learn quicker the language.
I teach online lessons via Skype at the best time for both and I also teach offline lessons. When I work offline with my students I send all the material to practice all the skills desired, then, I check it and send feedback to you.
