I am a teacher of Spanish as a second language, from Madrid. I graduated in Art History at the Spanish University UNED and I am certified as a teacher of Spanish as a second language. I have been teaching Spanish for five years to people with very different necessities and objectives (work, study, Erasmus, travel).
I was born in Madrid, the capital city of Spain, welcoming and full of history. I lived in Madrid for many years. I moved to Italy six years ago and I currently live in Turin, the beautiful capital of Piedmont region and first capital city of Italy. I like art, history, music, furniture restoration and taking care of my vegetable garden, when I can. I had the opportunity to travel abroad and being enriched by the culture of the places that I visited. I try to keep myself up to date by reading or listening to the news every day and I very much enjoy good conversations that allow me to better know other people.
I am used to developing a customised work plan for each student based on his motivation, objectives and initial level of knowledge of the language. Knowing my students’ occupations and hobbies helps me choose topics of their interest that can facilitate learning. I always try to balance the necessity of being able to communicate in Spanish with grammar learning. I like to maintain my students’ motivation high, by patiently supporting them in all the aspects that they find more difficult to deal with and by enhancing their ownership of the language.
My classes vary depending on your objective and initial level of knowledge of the language: if you need to reinforce school or university classes, we will be using the syllabus and learning material as a support to reach the foreseen learning objectives; if you want to obtain a language certificate we will do practice through the exercises that are part of the certification exam; if you need to work using Spanish we will practice communication and vocabulary adjusted on your professional field; if you need Spanish to travel abroad, we will focus on the use of Spanish in your destination countries, on their culture, traditions and current situation. We will improve your reading and listening comprehension, and speaking and writing skills through exercises that are specifically adapted to your level and interests.
