CRISTINA'S INTRODUCTION

Cristina is an experienced Spanish teacher from Spain who has been teaching since 2005. She has an undergraduate degree in Spanish Philology(with a specialty in teaching Spanish as a second language) and a two Masters degrees.
A Masters in Spanish & Spanish Literature, and another Masters in Pedagogy.

She always looking to review what her students have learned with new exercises. Her classes are dynamic and fun where we have conversations which we work and talk about. She takes the time to make me understand well how the language is built, and that helped me to get to know Spanish better. In addition, she is a very interesting person because she knows well both Spanish and Mexican culture since she is originally from Spain but has been living in Mexico for more than seven years.

She adapts her classes to the needs of the students, and she always has new materials.

She is originally from Spain and currently resides in Mexico.

She Can Teach These Specialized Courses:
DELE, Custom Professional, Spanish for Tourists, Spanish for Business, Spanish for Teachers

She Can Teach The Following Age Groups:
Children, Adolescents, College, Adults, Seniors

I like to combine communication with grammatical basis. If the student understands how the sentences are used, it will be easier for him or her to generate more different sentences. At the beginning of each class, we review what was learned in the previous class, to settle the new knowledge. Also, I like to incorporate some videos and audio, and to adapt the class to the needs of the student, generating specific materials for each person.
