I am from the beautiful San Sebastian, a town in the North of Spain known for its stunning beaches and amazing gastronomy.
I am qualified to teach Spanish both by Instituto Cervantes (ELE) and by International House (CLTA – Certificate in Language Teaching to Adults). My six years’ experience teaching children and adults has helped me develop a sense of imagination and creativity for the lessons.
I enjoy teaching Spanish using a communicative approach to the language, creating opportunities for the students to speak from the very beginning. I consider myself a very imaginative person, therefore I take pleasure in bringing to the classroom a variety of hands-on learning activities. I also believe that what you learn while having fun is never forgotten, therefore I tend to use games and playful activities in my classes.
In the last couple of years, I have specialised as a Montessori tutor, teaching children in an outstanding London primary school and obtaining a Master’s degree in Montessori Pedagogy. I enjoy applying the Montessori principles to the teaching of a foreign language. At Spanish House London I run the Sunday Spanish Club, in which our youngest students are encouraged to discover the Spanish language in a context of full immersion.
See you in the classroom soon! Hasta pronto!
