Laura is a great Spanish teacher ! She is patient and adaptes any of her lessons according your demand and level. I could have improved my pronunciation, my vocabulary and my grammar in Spanish thanks to her. I also felt free to ask anything about Latinoamerica as learning more about colloquial expressions from there. She made structured, personalized, attractive and completed Spanish courses ! I strongly recommend her !

Hello! My name is Valeria. I'm glad you took an interest in my profile. Let me tell you a bit more about myself. I'm really passionate about languages, and I can speak and teach English, Spanish, and Turkish. I am currently learning Korean, French, and Arabic. For this reason, you can be sure that I know what it's like to go through the process of learning a language and I can find the best ways to help you reach your language goals, taking into account the perspectives of both the teacher and the learner.

In my 9 years as a teacher, I have mostly worked with adult learners (aged 18 or older), with a particular focus on:

1. General, conversational, business or academic English (although I can teach any level, I specialize in intermediate and advanced classes).

2. General and conversational Spanish classes.

3. Basic and intermediate Turkish lessons (I am a C2 and I have been studying Turkish for 7 years).

In addition to the classes, I can help you prepare for presentations, business meetings or calls, traveling abroad, entertaining visitors, among others.

I love to teach students with completely different backgrounds, cultures, professions, and needs. My classes are and have always been completely personalized to fit students' needs. You will really notice a big difference from previous classes you may have taken because we will be focusing on filling the gaps that you may have and developing your language skills as needed. No one-size-fits-all here! Take a chance and sample one class. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

EXTRA: If you want to know more details about my classes: I work with a virtual classroom created using Google Classroom exclusively for your personal use. Here, I place all the materials we will use during our class, including a Word file where I will write your feedback for every class (New Vocabulary, Pronunciation Corrections, and New Grammar) so you can check it whenever you like.

I also create interactive Quizlet and Kahoot exercises that we will use during the class but that you can also use to practice on your own so you can reach your goals more quickly and in a fun way. In addition to this, we will use videos, songs, podcasts, articles, grammar PPTs and exercises, and whatever material you are interested in using.

Valeria is a great English teacher, she has good materials ! English grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation are related on her courses !

Hello,

My name is Amina, I’m Mexican, and I have almost 3 decades of experience teaching Spanish, which is my mother language. Regarding studies, I have a major as a Chemist Biologist, a Master in Cytopathology, a doctorate in Education, an FCE certification in English, level B2.

I’ve taught oral and written communication in Spanish to Engineering students, focused on aspects such as formal writing, correct spelling, oral presentations, job interviews and professional skills in general.

So, if you are an English speaker, interested in basic, intermediate or advanced Spanish practice, rest assured that I will be a good choice for you, with a variety of different subjects, whether professional or entertainment-related, depending on your interests.

On the other hand, if you are a native Spanish speaker like me, and you want to increase your practice in the professional use of this language, writing, spelling or oral expression, I am also ready to help you.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and chat about your goals in Spanish.

Amina is a very nice person and an enthusiastic teacher who has been doing this job for almost 30 years. She knows very well how to help her students learning a language. Amina's wide experience makes her able to help all kind of students, from beginners to advanced, and also students who might need help with a more technical language.

Hi! I'm Irene, a passionate Spanish teacher who can help you to learn Spanish from beginners up to advance level through dynamic and creative lessons. I can also prepare you for official DELE exams and have experience with kids and adults.

How are we gonna do it?

I'll share the material with you through Google Drive, so you always have access to the book and we'll also share a document in Google Drive, so everything we learn in the class it'll be there for you to reread or to print it.

I'll offer you a 20 minutes free class so you have the chance first to meet me and judge if you would like to start learning Spanish with me.

Feel free to ask questions! :)

See you through the screen

Hi!
My name is Kirstine. I'm an experienced English and Danish teacher. I teach at a primary and lower secondary school. (Students aged 6-16). But I'm also very interested in teaching both younger and older/adult students.
I'm an international coordinator at my school, and very used to working with students and teachers from all around the world.
I'm used to online teaching.
I love having contact with people from all around the world. I used to travel a lot, but now I love to meet people from other countries either at my AirBnB or through online sessions.
I love to hear from you and teach you either Danish or English.
I have an informal way of teaching, and will work together with you to make the sessions how you prefer them.
We can use a textbook if you prefer, but I also like to read the news, small books, look at online videos and more, and to discuss and learn from that.
