SPANISH TEACHER - SPANISH LESSON
Date Listed 12/07/2017
Hi my name is Gabriel and i'm a Spanish teacher and native speaker.
My main Profession is Psychology, I am a clinical Psyschologist (Working now in Organizational Psychology and Human Resources in Dublin, as a freelance translator and as an remote office administrator for a Fitness company expanding to Spain - Canary Islands) 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, that's why i recently finished a post graduation in "Teaching for higher education", to teach at universities eventually, and because i wanted to improve my teaching skills and learn more about new and more effective teaching techniques cause i think is important to stay updated and active because if you stop learning you fall into obsolescence and this is reflected in the quality of your work.
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 my students, I want to make it the most easy I can 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 the individual needs of each student, 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 all around them differently to any other person, assimilates experiences in a unique and particular way , has different interests and goals, has 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 work with kids and adults alike all around Dublin.
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.
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"
