-About Me

Hi! My name is Daniel. I'm 26 years old and I currently live in Seville, Spain. I have been teaching Spanish for 4 years now because I love to teach my language and culture to others. I'm interested in movies, especially french cinema of Nouvelle Vague, literature and music of all genres.

-Me as a Teacher

I graduated in Hispanic Philology with a master’s degree in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language at University of Sevilla with more than 3 years of experience teaching Spanish to students from different nationalities, countries, ages and levels (from absolutely begginer to C2).

I have worked with USA and Erasmus university students, refugees with any knowledge of Spanish, British, Chinese or Koreans students, among others. For doing that I have prepared personalized lessons based on the needs and interests of the students.

Also, I’m an official DELE Examiner certified by Instituto Cervantes who has helped a lot of students to get their Spanish level certificated in different levels.

-My Lessons & Teaching Style

-Very communicative lessons adapted to the needs and interests of my students.
-Personalised lessons based on each student and their goals.

I am an English language teacher with a strong academic background and a love of languages. I enjoy helping people to develop their ability to use English in different contexts.

I have the internationally recognised Cambridge CELTA qualification (Pass A) in English language teaching. I am teaching English to those learning for professional reasons or academic study as well as those learning for personal reasons or holidays. I am able to teach all levels from beginner to advanced (CEFR Levels A1-C2). I usually teach adults.

I have studied social sciences to PhD level and have experience of working in universities as a researcher, including giving tutorials. I have also worked as a professional proofreader.

I speak British English and I have an appreciation of other varieties of English, sometimes referred to as ‘Global Englishes’, as well as the use of English as a ‘lingua franca’ or common language.

I have been trained in the ‘communicative approach’ to language teaching. This approach is based on the idea that the best way for us to learn a language is through using it in communication that is meaningful for us. My lessons will help you to learn English through using it in activities and tasks that are connected to your reasons for learning English and your wider interests. The lessons will include vocabulary, grammar and other aspects of language as well as the four skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing, depending on your priorities. I would like to have some background information about you, including why you are learning English, your professional and/or personal interests and your first language. I can then create lessons that meet your individual needs with activities that are personalised for you.

I have also been trained in teaching English online and I am familiar with a range of digital tools that can make the lessons effective and interesting. I am also familiar with several sources of professionally designed study materials that are publicly available for adaptation for different learners. I will give you feedback on your strengths and on how to improve. I can also give guidance on homework and other resources you can access, if this is of interest to you.

I welcome your feedback on each lesson.

I have experience of learning languages myself, including Mandarin and Turkish, which I really enjoy. I hope that you will enjoy my English lessons.

I learn Italian with Alessio and I would say that it's a great experience. He is a very thoughtful teacher who puts a lot of thought into how he presents the material. He paces me just right so I feel myself challenged but not overwhelmed. His lessons are engaging, useful, and he is very patient. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in learning Italian.

I am TEFL qualified and I have over 16 years experience in 7 countries. Because of Covid I now teach only online using English File (oup). I will first analyse and assess your exact level. Then I will prepare a FREE sample lesson. After that I will fix any problems you may have below that level, so that you can progress with a solid ability in Grammar, Reading, Pronunciation, Listening and of course Speaking.
I like my lessons to be fun, but I am serious about teaching. If you really want to improve, I can help you.

Tired of grammar and all the rules that "help" you speak and hear in English? Then, after months/years of study, YOU STILL CAN'T DO EITHER to your satisfaction? Make no mistake, this is not a "miracle course" and you WILL be required to put in the time. However, that does not mean gruelling hours learning ridiculous rules. On the other hand, it DOES mean a lot of time listening, speaking and expanding the four major skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. And believe me....THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR HARD WORK, IF APPLIED TO THE PROPER SKILLS. Join me in my proven method to get you into an advanced i.e. beyond your current level, of English. We will learn the 4 basic skills but most of all - CRITICAL THINKING. So, if YOU are ready, if YOU will take the time, if YOU put in the work, I have the means to get you to the next level of English. See you in class!

I am a BA in Education graduate, with vast experience in primary, secondary and higher education levels, as well as in other activities related to education. I believe I have a diverse background which makes me a very adaptable teacher and with a lot to offer.
Most of my experience is in high school ,in adult education and university students. I have been able to develop a good relationship with my students, which has translated to better communication and an altogether more rounded experience for them and myself. My lesson planning has always aimed to reflect my students’ needs and interest applied into useful communicative language structures that they can actually use in their lives.
In my last years as a teacher, I have focused on preparing test-takers for the TOEFL. It has been a completely different experience from what I have had before, but I have helped my students accomplish the desired scores in the proposed time.
I believe in making the learning of a new language something exciting and not frightening at all, but challenging and gratifying instead. My material is dynamic and keeps my students engaged and continuesly developing their communiation skills.
I am flexible with my students' time and shcedule; naturally, it is open for deliberation if needed. I look forward to helping you get to the desired goals you set foryourself!

I am Michelle Reece-Herbert from the Island of Barbados. My profession as an Educator is of importance to me as I always try to facilitate the learning needs of students. It is in this context, that I have studied and obtained my degrees/certificates in Spanish with Management BA, CELTA, Classroom Management, Technology & Learning Design MA.
Over the years, I have taught on various ESL/TESOL programmes (blended), and the students range from teens - adults (A1 - C2) from regional and International countries. Additionally, I taught at a few Universities in Colombia, South America as a Language Instructor.

As a Language Educator, I consider myself to possess many traits relevant to such a profession. Among them:- a good listener, having patience when dealing with challenges within the teaching & learning environment, dedicated and an engaging personality.

My approach to the teaching and learning environment is based on the Communicative & Integrative methods. In this regard, students are encourage to utilize their prior/background knowledge and experiences to support new knowledge being received. Therefore, my sessions are tailor-made for the student's needs via the use of authentic & creative materials (eg. photographs, news clips, songs, videos, role-plays, discussions, interactive activities etc.) to reflect real life contexts.

Exploiting opportunities and finding solutions is my biggest motivation. For me, it is central to being able to mean something to fellow human beings. I am decisive, decisive and persuasive. I am also consultative, empathetic and fair. Integrity is very important to me. As a connector, I am focused on achieving cohesion and enthusiasm within the lessons and I ensure a good atmosphere. I will motivate others to listen to each other, to use each other's qualities and to compliment each other. I ensure involvement and loyalty in the lessons. I have extensive experience in teaching. Since February 2018 I have been appointed as a language teacher at the Language Center at the University of Groningen and I am also a certified teacher NT2. I am also certified as an English teacher. For NT students I use Taalcomplete and for highly educated students Dutch in gait/Dutch in action/the jump and the final. For Arabic interested I use Alif baa and Alkitaab. In the first lesson you will receive more information about the procedure. After all, language is the connection between us all.
