About ÁngelaHello and welcome to my teacher profile! Here I'll try to answer to the questions you could have before booking a session with me.
- Let's start with my teaching system.
I am familiar with tutoring face-to-face (6 years) and online (3 years). I am currently in a research which involves language teaching and technology and I use a wide range of visual tools to make lessons more appealing (virtual whiteboard, Google Drive, etc.)
- How do I speak?
I have a language certificate for working in the media, so my diction and elocution skills are very good. In case you wondered, I have a clear standard accent from Spain (and an Occidental accent in Catalan).
- How am I going to make you improve your language skills?
Let me be honest: I am a language learner myself, so I know the keys are practice, quality feedback and new challenges in order to keep moving forward! I'm here to help you with all of these in the most fun possible way, without forgetting about the cultural aspect of the language.
- How about session types?
This is absolutely up to you! From exam preparation, grammar, writing and conversation to the most advanced rules of ortotypography (I am a proofreader). This is the good part of teaching one-to-one, that I can tailor my lessons to your needs and learning style. You set your goal, I design a specific lesson plan!

I got this certificate after I did a course on how to speak in the media. It included: which kind of language has to be used on tv or radio, how to talk and a lot of elocution practise to speak clearly.
