I am Dee, I'm from Spain and I'm bilingual: I speak Spanish and English. I'm an English graduate, I recently passed my Cambridge Proficiency exam (C2) and I have a masters' degree on teaching Spanish as a second language. I have a passion for languages and meeting new people. I am interested in culture, especially music and literature, but I also love cinema, photography, visiting museums and travelling.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I like to create lessons that are fully adapted to my students. I like to know why students want to learn a language and which are the things that can spark their passion for learning. I like to make feel students welcome, comfortable and not afraid to make mistakes. I am accessible and friendly.
My lessons & teaching style
I am well aware that the best way to learn a language is by speaking, so my lessons are mainly oriented towards having conversations with the students based on the topics that interest them the most. I can offer several types of lessons: conversation lessons in which we speak about different subjects or prepare for real-life conversations; lessons based on questions and answers that allow students to reflect and test their fluency; and lessons that are oriented towards exam preparation and working with the different skills of the language.

I do these classes (6:00 am) before my school starts, there have been times when I’m extremely tired and don’t want to get out of bed, but she always makes the conversations worth it. Every time I’m excited to come to class. I originally started this to practice for an exchange program but I couldn’t help coming back after to keep talking with her.

I've had over 200 classes with Dee over the past 18 months or so. It's amazing that when I started, I could hardly talk or understand anything in Spanish, but now I'm able to speak with her the whole class. She has been so patient and kind with me and is great at asking questions to get me talking. I really appreciate her corrections. I continue to look forward to our classes and hope to have hundreds more with her over the years.

Dee is the perfect conversation tutor! She speaks slowly and clearly and is able to maintain a fluid conversation while helping me with corrections. She’s also so patient and fun to speak with which helps me feel more comfortable.

Dee is an amazing teacher who is always encouraging and explains things very well and clear. I've been slowly improving my conversation skills with her and with each lesson, I feel more confident in my speaking and listening. Definitely try a lesson with Dee, I highly recommend her! Gracias Dee!

Dee was very personable and adjusted the lesson to the pace that I was able to cope with. She helped me through things that I struggled with and explained to me the correct way to say things that I was trying to convey. Thoroughly enjoyable lesson.
