SPANISH TEACHER - SPANISH CLASS
Date Listed 01/04/2018
Hi my name is Gabriel and i'm a Spanish teacher and native speaker. My main Profession is Psychology, I am an ex clinical Psyschologist (currently working in organizational psychology) who enjoys a lot teaching languages in his spare time, cause involves my two biggest passions: languages (i speak Spanish as mother tongue and fluent English, Italian and Portuguese, currently studying German and French) and teaching (I hold a postgraduate degree in "teaching for higher education" and a TEFL certificate) because when i teach i feel motivated and commited with my self and my own learning in order to be better day by day and help my students with their struggles learning a new language and there is nothing i can enjoy than sharing my passion about languages with them. For me learning language should be fun, should be something to enjoy and not something tedious or boring and that's exactly what I try to transmit to my students, I want to make easy for them to enjoy the experience of learning a new language as much as I do. I try to use my experience as a Clinical Psychologist in the lessons with my students, to facilitate the process, knowing my students and learning about them in the first contact, to structure and adapt the lessons to their individual needs, based in their goals and motivation about the language. I'm also familiar in dealing with the frustration and the consequent mental block experienced by some students when, for different reasons, they don't fully trust in their own capacities and abilities to learn a new language. As we say in Spanish "cada persona es un mundo" (every person is a world), we are all different, each person perceives and gives a different meaning to thing around them, assimilates experiences in a unique and particular way, has different interests and goals, different learning styles and is a function of the teacher to know all the factors involved in the learning process, to help them to assimilate the information in a simple and easy way. It's important to know and adapt to each student as an individual, with their own type of personality, their own motivations, goals, interests, and learning style.
I can help you to learn Spanish at any level and in any context (Professional purposes, academic purposes, Holidays or just recreational purposes), also different ages. I can also help you with your college assignments , some job presentation or if you need to translate any document from Spanish into English or vice versa. Classes are currently held only through Skype and All material is Provided by E-mail for each lesson, so you don't need to buy anything.
Feel free to contact me and "hasta pronto"
