I am a Spanish qualified teacher with a master’s degree in teaching Spanish as a foreign language with a wide experience as a private tutor. Whilst studying for my teaching degree I worked in a holiday camp association that was in charge as well of several extracurricular and support teaching projects within local schools, as a monitor, teacher and for a brief period, a manager. I then started becoming aware of how hard the economical crisis was striking the education in Spain and I started thinking about moving to London as I had several friends living there which suggested me so. It was then that I found out about this master’s degree in ELE (teaching of spanish as a foreign language) offered by the UNED (spanish university of distance studies). At that time I decided to specialize in the teaching of my mother language.
I spent my first year in London studying english courses, volunteering in order to enhance my english speech as much as possible, and working on my master’s degree, along with the development of my own projects, activities and teaching units that I use to teach spanish to the pupils I managed to gather offering spanish tuition on gumtree and similar websites. When I grew confident enough on my language prowess I took the IELTS test in which I achieved an overall punctuation of 7 and decided that it was time to try and take a step further.
My teaching method makes use of my pupils personal interests and connects them with the spanish language and culture through a comprehensible input. I am foremost keen on my students enjoying my classes while they achieve competency in an immersive yet chilled atmosphere that makes the language acquisition process natural, rather than a harder, deliberate learning.
I think I would be an asset to your academy as I have loads of projects and enthusiasm, a wide, academic knowledge of the 6 oficial levels of the spanish language determined by the Instituto Cervantes and a set of full-fledged pedagogical skills thriving to be tested.
As a graduate teacher of International House, I thrive when I am challenged to think creatively. I have created lessons that engage all learners, by applying proven teaching methods and emerging technologies. Especially where, the effective use of mobile technology in learning is an important part of today’s society.
I also believe that my background would specifically suit teaching at your school. Specifically, as a former Customer Relations Advocate I have extremely good advisory skills and would bring this attention to detail to the students.
Each lesson is created according to the needs of learners and their ability and according the European Language Levels CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: learning, teaching, assessment) and according to their age and to their professional, cultural and educational background.
A lesson is split in many sections normally: grammar, conversation, role plays, listening and so on. Teaching methods are old and modern. I believe that students should give me the direction in selecting, arraging, managing lessons/courses according to their knowledge, their ability to understand and advancement in learning (not always the students in the class has the same level, knowledge, age and skills).
I thus use not only different books but also I search on the web the best solution for the purpose of each lesson and also I prepare myself exercises, game tables, role plays…
All lessons are done in a relaxed environment: my approach is to play with the language, to smile a lot so as students can enjoy a confortable hour without feeling stressed or under evaluation.

I’m a 27 year old Italian girl. I am self confident and an optimistic, cheery person.
I like putting myself to the test and experiencing new challenges, especially in new environments. I am really friendly and open minded, willing to listen to different points of view and learn from them.
At the same time I have a strong personality that allows me to work hard and be adaptable to most situations and environments.
During all my previous experiences I built up strong bonds with most of my colleagues and learnt the importance of good team work. I also work very well by myself and I am highly organised. My organisational skills were improved during my three year Bachelor degree in Languages and Foreign Cultures, where I learnt to follow very strict time limits and set my own short term goals in order to receive very high marks in my degree course. This involved setting a rigorous timetable which I had to stick to at all times and dedicate all my time to. I always finish my work before it’s actually due as I don’t like rushing all my work near the deadline. This skill transfers to developing lesson plans or organising events or activities for my job.
I have taught English in China and I have taught English and Italian in my home country too. The children I taught in China spoke very little English which was a challenge for any teacher. The school was a boarding school of children from 2 years old up to 17 years old and I taught most of those age groups. It was more challenging than in Italy because the children were not so well behaved and I didn’t have any assistant teachers so I had to teach up to 45 children by myself. I managed this by preparing thorough lesson plans and making sure they were always engaged and stimulated every minute of the lesson. During this experience I learnt how to plan every single lesson in order to be successful and I used flashcards and interactive materials for kindergarten classes, whilst books, videos and Power Point slides for primary school classes. I enjoy teaching because I love engaging with children and I love languages. I particularly enjoy teaching Italian because I can combine my profound interest in the grammar and the opportunity to spread my culture.
I am an experienced foreign languages teacher. I come from Argentina and I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language for over 9 years now. I also specialized in ELE. I took the ELE course at International House and I am a certified English as a Foreign Language Teacher. Moreover, I have been accepted at Barcelona University to start my master on ELE in May, 2015.
I have a passion for teaching which makes me love my daily work more and more each day. I love planning and preparing my lessons carefully and I use lots of motivating material to inspire my students.
I have teaching experience on all levels of Primary School. I have also worked with adult learners for more than 5 years.
I moved to London, UK one month ago and I am seeking for a motivating and challenging job which will give me the possibility of doing what I like most: teaching and sharing my culture and learning from my students in return!
I worked in Italy, Morocco and Argentina. I’m Philosophy, Art and Italian teacher.
I love teaching because everytime I learn more about my Tongue and new languages. I worked with children and adults, in the school and in the office.
I adapt the methodology at the students, I think every people needs different method for learn one lenguage. I teacher the cultur(Art, Theatre, Films… ) Italian and the different pronunciation, because every Region in Italy speaks little different. I think that the grammar in Italian is very important, I know that isn’t very “funny”, for this razon I use differents form for transmit this. I have very problem with English writing… but I’m studying now. I show the films, if the livel is 0, only short video very easy, if the livel is 3 or 4, I show documentary about Italian Art, because I think is the most fascinanting aspect the my culture. If the people no love the Art I adapt the videos, I ask them the Hobbies and I try use these(sport, Politicy, food…). I taught Spanish and Napolitan too, because I lived for 5 years in Argetine, and I speak very good Spanish. I studied all my life, and I taught all my life… I hope teaching in London too… Sorry for my English and regards
I have taught TEFL short, annual and intensive English courses in five European cities: Sofia, Prague, Dublin, Edinburgh and London. My main training as a TEFL teacher is the communicative approach but as a trained English and drama teacher I apply a variety of methods and enjoy bringing a playful spirit into the classroom where everyone should be feeling at home!
