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.

Hello everyone! My name is Ainhoa, I am Spanish and I live in Bilbao, a city in northern Spain. I am an online Spanish teacher certified by ELE international and I have a year of experience teaching private lessons.

Thanks to my studies and experience, I am aware of how important it is to adapt the classes to the needs of my students and that they enjoy learning. Therefore, I adapt the classes so that my students can learn to the fullest.

In addition, although my classes are in Spanish, I can use English whenever necessary as I have a good level. I love languages, travel and learn from other cultures.

If you want to start learning Spanish, improve your level, prepare for DELE exams or learn Spanish because you like it, contact me and I will design a plan adapted to you.

See you in class!

My goal is to make you confident and comfortable around others when speaking in English.
My academic qualifications include a Bachelor's degree in Law and a Master of Business Administration. In the last 18 years I have been training people in English from many different industries - including Telecommunications, Publishing, Energy, Financial, Government, Entertainment, Construction, Pharmaceutical, Legal, Logistics. Consultancy, Insurance, Human Resources.
I have helped people prepare for presentations, negotiations, examinations and conducted workshops to assist in how to optimise written and audio communication and informal conversation "small talk".
My methodology depends on you and how you feel you can best learn. For that I would greatly appreciate your input. There are many different learning styles and we have a good forum to use many of them.

I love to teach my language ♥

My name is Abdelrahman, I'm a native Arabic speaker. I'm passionate about teaching Arabic. so it will be a great pleasure for me to help you learn Standard Arabic and Egyptian dialects.

My teaching approach will be easy and a lot of fun, Because I'm going to set up a suitable syllabus for every student depends on their needs and levels. and I want to make your path to learn easier and shorter. I'm looking forward to seeing you.

I often use these books in my teaching way:

- Arabic courses for English-speaking students (Madina book)

- Arabic between your hands.

- Al-kitab Al-Asasi (the basic book for non-Arabic speakers).

- kallimni Arabi bishweesh (Egyptian Arabic).

-Egyptian vernacular

I'm also choosing the best things from different books, so they can be suitable for my students.

I'm trying my best to make my lessons interesting and not boring, I have taught different ages from children to older people, and alhamdulillah it was a fantastic lesson.

hope to see you soon :)

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 !

Hi, I'm Dajana, I'm 31 years old and I come from Naples.
I am graduated in Foreign Languages and Litteratures and I have a II Level Master degree in Teaching Italian as Second Language.

I have teached italian to foreign people, above all adults at any age, in several NGOs and social cooperatives in the last 4 years.

How will I teach you italian? By playing!
I know that studying a language by reading a grammar book and mechanically completing the attached exercises can be boring and above all does not train your mind.

Learning instead should be a pleasure, so I like to use small funny videos, songs, puzzles and so on.
I also prefer the inductive method so that you can understand how Italian works on your own and then fix the grammatical rules together.
That way you’ll learn Italian without even realizing it!

But all this depends on you and how you prefer to study. I will be very happy to adopt the method that suits your case. The most important thing is that you get your goals with pleasure!

Don’t you think studying can be a pleasure? Join me and you’ll find out!

Cheers,
Dajana

I base my lessons on your preferences. Would you like to speak better? No problem, so I'll look for nice pictures or newspaper articles for you that we can talk about.
Would you like to go deeper into grammar or do you always run into the same questions? I will explain the rules in a way that you can understand them so that you will learn the German language with more fun and success.

I have a great passion for languages and people. In Switzerland I gave a course for German as a foreign language and it was a nice experience. I also gave typing lessons to adults and so have a lot of experience in classrooms.
After that I followed a training course as a trainer for adults and now have a SVEB EUROLTA Diploma. Here in Eindhoven I also work for a language school and because I really love this work, I would like to give more lessons.
Reading, writing or speaking - do you find that difficult? Then we will work together to make it easier for you!

“I need to learn Russian because I work with Russians a lot, but many of them don’t speak English”.
“I often go to Russia for work, but it’s so hard to move around on my own! I don’t understand anything and I feel helpless”.
“I’ve been studying Russian for a while now, but I still can’t speak. I need more practice in conversation”.
“I’m studying Russian at college, but I need help to get ready for the exam”.

Do you recognize yourself in any of these statements? These are some typical things that I hear from people who come to my lessons.
People study Russian for all sorts of reasons. Whatever your needs are, I’m here to help you.

If you have never studied Russian, after my lessons you will be able to:
- read that mysterious Russian alphabet and understand a lot of Russian words, because, once the code has been cracked, they appear to be very similar to English;
- learn and use simple phrases of everyday use to communicate with Russians from the very start;
- understand Russian native speakers thanks to the use of authentic audio and video materials,
- write simple messages and emails in Russian;
- read simple texts and find the information you need even if you don’t understand every single word.

If you have already studied Russian and have some command of the language, you will be able to:
- improve your grammar;
- speak in Russian on different topics and gain fluency;
- write different types of texts (from text messages and greeting cards to presentations and essays);
- read and listen to different authentic texts suitable for your linguistic level, and improve your comprehension skills;
- discover the fascinating world of the Russian culture, from history and traditions to life in modern Russia.

Studying a new language opens a new world. Studying Russian opens the door not just to the Russian world, but also to other countries where Russian is widely spoken and understood, like Belarus, Ukraine, or Kazakhstan. Moreover, if you know Russian, it will be easier to study other Slavic languages, too.

So, why choose me as your Russian teacher? Here are some good reasons:
- I am a native speaker of Russian;
- I have more than 10 years of experience as a teacher of Russian as a foreign language and more than 20 years of teaching foreign languages in general;
- I’m very patient and I adapt my teaching style to the needs and the level of my students;
- I use a lot of authentic materials and I never limit myself to just one textbook;
- I can explain grammar in your language;
- with me, you can practice Russian in a friendly and stimulating environment, without any fear of mistakes. Making mistakes is human, mistakes are a natural part of learning a new skill. There are no votes here, so don’t be afraid to speak! The more you practice, the more fluent you become.

At our first meeting, we’ll be able to get to know each other, I will learn about your needs and skills, together we will prepare your lesson plan, determine the goals and choose appropriate materials.

Book your first session today and let’s begin this journey together. I hope to see you soon in my virtual classroom!

I am a CELTA certified Teacher of English and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism. I have a vast experience teaching General English, preparation for Cambridge exams-, pronunciation, speaking and developing writing skills. I have been teaching for over 18 years to students of different age ranges (young learners and adults at universities, middle and high school and academies.
What I love most about teaching is that I get to help students and make them see how beautiful this language is and how they can make it useful for their academic and professional lives. Another good point is that we can learn from each other and the opportunity to plan every class in a different way.
I think I can tailor your lessons according to your needs so, do not hesitate and contact me.
See you soon,
Armando

I used to teach elementary school children through non formal education methods: games in particular. Also by sharing experience through story telling.

I also have experience in teaching highschool students and youngsters. The methods are both non formal and formal education methods. When I teach in formal way, I use interactive tasks since most of the students like to acquire communication skills.

I adapt myself to a student's needs and let them suggest me what would they like to work on.

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
