I am a native English teacher. I teach English and Spanish.
I was born in London but I live on the East coast of Spain.
I own an run my own language and training academy.
I used to work in sales in the media industry and I have also worked in marketing with small businesses.
I have experience dealing with business people at all levels from CEO down.
Me as a Teacher
I have a TEFL certificate and I currently teach English and Spanish
I started my teaching career working in small to large companies in Barcelona. These included firms such as La Caixa Bank, Deloitte, RENFE and Grant Thornton.
I have experience designing and giving lessons that are industry and job specific.
I can normally quite quickly find the grammar weaknesses in almost any candidate and help them to patch up the gaps.
My lessons & teaching style
I offer a wide range of teaching materials from video to audio, e-books to pdfs and articles as well as free-form converstion style sessions.
I can also research any job position, industry niche or product area in order to tailor-make classes.
I use direct methods of teaching but I do not over-correct.
I believe that most students learn 80% of the language outside of the classroom and so I help them to structure their learning when they are not with me.
