About meI'm Elena, a native and certified Spanish teacher from Barcelona. I am passionate about helping others learn my language. My native languages are Spanish and Catalan, and I also learned a lot of English after spending three years in the United Kingdom. I studied a Master's Degree in teaching at the University of Barcelona and then a specialised course in teaching Spanish for non-Spanish speakers accredited by the Instituto Cervantes. I have been teaching Spanish to children, teenagers and adults as a private tutor; which is my current job in the Netherlands. My lessons are flexible, and I adapt them to the student's needs and interests. I have experience giving conversational Spanish lessons, general Spanish lessons, lessons for beginners, among others. I like to start my lessons by asking the students to tell me what they have done in the last few days, or during the weekend. We will also review the vocabulary learnt in the previous lesson. I develop activities for the students to practice new grammar/vocabulary, and I always try to create exercises that are useful for them so they can practice different skills. I would share videos for their listening understanding and afterwards, talk about the subject, or we would start a conversation after reading a text. For general Spanish, I would introduce a topic in each lesson, so my students can learn new vocabulary and grammar with different activities. Such activities could be reading, listening, role-playing and other games or activities that are suitable for students' practice. No matter your level, we will work together to help you reach your goal. Maybe you just want to practice a conversation, reach a certain level, or pass an exam; whatever you want, we will focus the class on that. If you need help, do not hesitate to contact me!
