    Teaching Approach

    I have more than 15 years of experience teaching languages (English and Spanish) and my students satisfaction comes from being able to feel confident about speaking their new language from the first couple of lessons. This is because I focus on them losing the fear to speak and to make mistakes. My approach involves helping students learn from their own mistakes, which are always present in any learning process. And the structure of my lessons is based on presenting a topic then practicing and then doing some oral and/or written production. But also a class can be based mainly in conversation when necessary.

    Program Description

    I mainly teach conversation skills. From what I find in my students' speaking practice I provide them with grammar content relevant to their needs. I also teach vocabulary and pronunciation .

    I teach from beginners through advanced students.

    I teach using Skype or other video/chat service.

    - From the second lesson on, I do a class plan following the Warm up- Presentation- Practice-Produ ction sequence. Or I can take a more open approach depending on students request and on the level of the student.
