I have been learning languages for most of my life and I know how important it is to have the right teacher: someone who is friendly bu challenging. My teaching method is very practical and realistic. I prefer to focus on developing communication skills. For my first lesson with a student, I like to have a conversation so I can have a good understanding of his/her needs and challenges. We normally work with a document (a text, a picture, a short video) and talk about it. For our following lessons, we do the same, only with specific grammar and vocabulary objectives. I normally provide exercises and verb drills online so the student can improvehis/her grammar. Our focus during the lessons is answering questions about that grammar and practicing in conversation. The most important thing is that my students make the most of their time on line by learning, speaking and enjoying the experience of Spanish.
