Bio:

I like to put the student's individual needs at the centre of the learning process. My own experience of majoring in Spanish in university allowed me to understand the most effective techniques to use when teaching a language. This, combined with my TEFL Certificate, has enabled me to understand how best to help any student of any standard meet their English learning goals. I teach students of any level, ranging from complete beginners to advanced learners preparing for specialised exams.

My teaching methodology:
My teaching strategy is highly personalised. I'm aware that certain teaching methods and techniques are more helpful to some students than others. This allows me to specifically tailor each student's learning plan, allowing them to develop and improve their language skills at a speed they enjoy. I like to find out early how best a student likes to learn. This allows me to include the right combination of visual, aural and oral exercises and activities in my classes. I also like to include real life materials such as Youtube videos, podcasts, newspaper articles and blogs. When teaching grammar, I like to find an online PDF textbook appropriate to the student's level that we can work from together. Learning a new language should always be a joyful experience, so I always like to create a fun and relaxed environment during classes!
My teaching background:

Last year I began teaching English online. Since then, I have thought a number of different type of classes to teenagers and students from all over the world! I enjoy the different challenges that teaching either teenagers or adults can bring, I find teaching both equally rewarding! So far I have have prepared students for IELTS, Cambridge or TOEFL exams, helped students with every aspect of their business english including presentations, small talk, powerpoints, emails, vocabulary, negotiating skills. I have aided students in their preparation for job interviews, worked through grammar books from level A1 to C2, and prepared students for their move to Ireland through listening to podcasts or watching youtube videos.

My background outside of teaching:

Outside of teaching I love sports, especially soccer. I previously worked as a full-time soccer coach for the last 5 years. I'm also interested in cooking and fitness. I currently live in Spain so I understand fully the challenges of speaking a foreign language in a new country!
