I have been teaching Spanish to children and adults from 2011. I am a qualified English and French into Spanish Translator and a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists. At the moment I am completing my masters to become a qualified teacher for Modern Foreign Languages in the UK in June 2017.
I have prepared students for their GCSEs and A Levels Spanish, and they have always achieved a B or A mark.
I adapt the class to the student´s needs and interests, but I would say that in general, I focus on oral communication. Because in my opinion, it is the most important skill in a language. At the same time, it is the most difficult part of achieving.
As I also completed a BA in Economics and Business Studies, and I have worked in finance for several years, I am especially qualified to teach Spanish for Business.
Although I use as much Spanish as possible in the class, because I think it is a good practice, I can also communicate with the students in French and English which can help to clarify any misunderstanding during the class.
Claudia is excellent and very patient. I am really enjoying the lessons.
