Spanish and English tutor - Dublin North
- Date Listed15/10/2018
My name is Cristina, I come from Spain and I am an enthusiastic experienced and certified teacher of Spanish as a foreign language, with over 10 years of experience abroad.
I have spent a number of years teaching Spanish at a language school, companies and private lessons and exams preparation.
I have taught from kids to teenagers and adults , from total beginners to advance levels.
Furthermore I hold the certification as an examiner of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE) by Institute Cervantes.
Moreover my experience with foreign languages also applies to teaching English as well, giving casual lessons in Spain and to employees abroad and taking courses in German language.
I offer one-to-one grinds or in small groups (max.3 students), providing personalized lessons, according to the age, interests, wishes and needs of the student, covering all the skills (grammar, writting, reading, speaking and listening). Yet my principal focus is a communication-based method; from my own experience and most of my students, conversing is typically a very effective way as it emphasises the interaction and use of the language in real scenarios, it motivates the student as they can see they actually are able to transmit messages, it helps to assimilate vocabulary, grammatical rules, etc.
In addition I try my students to learn by having fun, when the learning becomes joyfull is easier to improve.
Note: during Covid, preferrably grinds via online.
