Fully Qualified Spanish Teacher & External Examiner with a solid academic background, including a Masters of Arts in Applied Linguistics, a BA of Arts in English, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and QTS. With solid skills and 20+ years of teaching experience in languages (English, Spanish and French).
I completed a Master's degree in Applied Linguistics to teach Spanish as a Foreign Language. I am a native Spanish speaker and fluent in English (C2 level). I am a graduate of English Language (B.A.), and I have a working knowledge and a good command of French. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) as confirmed by the Department of Education (DfE) in the United Kingdom. I have a lot of experience teaching languages to both children and adults. I have been a Spanish tutor in the Fluency Corps company and currently work as an internal moderator for the International Baccalaureate, developing my work as a teacher remotely. I have experience teaching Spanish and English in both primary and secondary in a British international school (700 on a roll) in Spain that follows the U.K. National Curriculum. I have prepared students for public examinations, such as IGCSE and A level, with excellent results. In class, I do not just teach the language because I believe that teaching a language also involves knowing the traditions and culture of the people that speak this language. For this reason, my teaching is eclectic and involves the students in their learning process through various activities outside the traditional classroom. I have an open and dynamic personality.

I include a range of activities such as role plays, drama, and projects that help students develop their true potential in my classes. Also, I create exercises that often occur in everyday life in the classroom so that students naturally learn languages.
Usually, I like to talk to my students about their likes and hobbies to get to know them better. And something significant to me: helping them achieve the best academic results. To do this, I adapt my classes to their needs. I want them to feel comfortable.
I can quickly adapt my teaching to the level of the students, and I create my material to suit the needs of each group. I love working with students from different cultures and nationalities. As a teacher, I firmly believe that it is essential to teach mutual respect and promote tolerance and diversity so that our students will be highly placed individuals in the future.
