I am an articulate, qualified, self-motivated and confident Spanish and English teacher who is able to communicate with students from diverse backgrounds who have varying degrees of ability. I am a committed and dedicated professional with a proven ability to teach, motivate and direct students to achieve their maximum performance, by encouraging a positive and energetic environment.
I have many years experience teaching languages at tertiary, secondary and primary level. When teaching English, Spanish and French I always follow a communicative approach, which allows students to develop their linguistic skills. I also use a communicative approach, allowing pupils to improve their writing, reading, listening and speaking skills in what is often their second language. Moreover, I have solid experience in coordinating and developing educational projects, including the evaluation and monitoring of results and analysis of their impact.
