italki teacher since Jan 17, 2022
I am a law student in the penultimate semester and a language enthusiast. I have certifications in English (TOEFL), French (DALF C1) and I am currently studying to obtain my certification in Portuguese. I love World History and studying about the cultures of each continent, I believe the world is too big, varied and beautiful to keep seeing the same place or the same people all the time.
Me as a Teacher
The word that defines me is "dedication"; patience and time are my great weapons. I like to be committed and disciplined in what I do, because I like the others to have a positive opinion about me and my work. I do not rest until the student has achieved his/her goals.
My lessons & teaching style
My method consists of practical exercises. The fact that the student learns to use short sentences from day 1 gives great dynamism to the class and fosters interest. I don't like to saturate the student with grammar exercises, rather, encourage him to speak and write as much as he can, immersing him in the use of the language. That is the natural way of learning, through which small children or foreigners learn.

Aunque ha pasado mucho tiempo desde que hablo español, Leonardo really helped me to feel comfortable speaking Spanish (despite many pauses). ¡Él es muy paciente y agradable! I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn and improve their Spanish.

Awesome lesson! Leonardo is a passionate teacher of Spanish and a great conversationalist. He asked lots of great questions and speaks English fluently so he could easily translate any questions on the fly, keeping the conversation going. Thanks Leo!!
