Dear all,
My name is Giovanna, I am Italian and I live in Rome. I am a foreign language teacher of state secondary school. I teach Italian language and culture at the cultural association "Il Mondo che Vorrei" of my city.
I have a degree in foreign languages ​​and literatures and a degree in education. I have acquired two teaching qualifications and 3 masters, including the last one in Italian language and culture for foreigners.
I have over ten years of experience in teaching to children, teens and adults.
Why choosing me? Because my method works. I don't use a traditional approach: I start with a theme topic and then I go into detail on language functions and skills. I prepare students for language certifications at all levels. I don't just teach the language: my lessons will be a language journey through a full immersion of art, music, cuisine, fashion, tourism and culture at 360 °, all Made in Italy. And there will be some nice surprises of authentic "on the road" lessons
I'm waiting for you!

Hello! I’m María, an experienced teacher from Spain currently living in Belgium. I love learning foreign languages and teaching Spanish is my passion!

I think MOTIVATION is the key to an effective learning experience, and therefore my classes will be designed according to your needs and preferences. My goal is for you to fulfill your objectives! We will together create a plan to make that happen, and negotiate which materials to use. You will be in charge of your own learning experience! I also consider really important to have a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in class.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language and Literature, a Master’s degree in Linguistics and a certificate in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. I have experience in both face-to-face and online classes, with teenagers, young people and adults.

I consider myself a hard-worker, friendly, emphatic and kind person. I look forward to meeting you and being able to help you improve your Spanish! See you at the trial lesson!

Hello, Spanish learner! I am Isabel, your Spanish teacher.

I am a professional online Spanish teacher for 3 years. I am a native speaker from Colombia.

My lessons are completely in Spanish because I want you to speak as much as possible. During my lessons, we will focus on conversation and pronunciation. But a typical lesson also contains a vocabulary topic and a grammar topic.

I will focus on your needs and your mistakes to improve your Spanish as quickly as possible. In the first lesson, we will do a level test to check your current level (CEFR A1, A2, B1, B2, C1)

If you would like to improve your Spanish, learn more about the South American culture, gastronomy and traditions, I am your teacher! Or if you just want to talk in Spanish, about any subject you like, I would be happy to meet you online.

Send me a message and I will provide you a 30-minute free trial lesson!

See you online on Skype.

Your Spanish teacher, Isabel

In recent years I have worked as an Academic Director at a Language School in northern Spain. My job duties there included designing intensive Spanish & English courses for beginners’, intermediate and advanced levels, as well as teaching both on-site and via Skype. This constant interest has allowed me to become familiar with techniques and tools that are essential in today´s second language learning, such as the materials used by the Cervantes Institute and the most renowned publications and blogs in the field of language teaching. Most particularly, I have made extensive use of audiovisuals and creative writing activities in order to develop consistent, effective courses. 


As an on-line teacher, I have steadily used different technology applications in language learning. My tasks as a teacher included setting homework and giving feedback to my students, according to their needs, on a regular basis, as well as keeping accurate register of their attendance and progress. 


Graduated in Hispanic Philology and Masters in Applied French, I have always kept up with my teaching training and have recently completed a Cambridge CELTA course for English teachers This further training has provided me with the familiarity to different teaching methodologies, which have proven to be extremely useful in my classes. 

My hobbies: art cinema, hiking, reading and watching and playing basketball.

I wanted to refresh and improve my Spanish and I contacted Inigo because he 's certified in luinguistic. Inigo is very patient, professional and helpful. He provides well structured lessons, in a very friendly and good atmosphere which is really favorable for learning a foreign language. The lesson material is built around several support such as text, audio, video, etc. You can't be bored and it's nice to switch between the different materials along the hour. He's also fluent in French and English so he can switch from a language to another for any explanation if needed. I really enjoy my lessons with him and I definitely recommand him!

ENGLISH LANGUAGE.
I got certified with the University of Cambridge TKT test, developed empathy to students, polished my method, and the last 5 years I have been teaching english in an online environment.
After years teaching online, I can say that the computer screen is not a limitation. I love to see my students thrive in a new language, I develop my own exercises too, My classes are fun, dynamic and interesting to say the least, I believe I have the patience to create exercises and drills for my students and approach learning from a different perspective and overcome boredom, tiredness and lack of discipline.
I work with realia mostly, and I can tell you that nothing is more powerful than things and situations that are personal to a person.

I offer personalized English classes which are really suitable to the student's level and motivations.
I work equally the four main skills of the language throughout authentic materials such as songs, videos, movies or short films and even magazines and newspapers articles. I also combine my classes with course books whose levels are challenging enough to help the students to make an accurate and confident learning progress.
I offer grammar and vocabulary exercises and activities to help the students to enrich the language's development.
My classes are online within reduced groups of students to maintain classes well balanced and entertaining enough. I also offer individual lessons.
The duration of the classes are ideally 60 minutes long.
