italki teacher since Jul 6, 2017
I am a profesional language teacher. For more than five years I have been teaching Spanish, Catalan, English and Serbo-Croatian. I have taught children as well as teenagers and adults. I also help with DELE exam preparation (A1-C2 level).
Me as a Teacher
Throughout my working experience as a language teacher one of the important achievements was the fact that I was the founder of Catalan language course and its promoter in the cultural centre I worked for where my activity was related to the following points:
▪ Introduction to grammar and practical vocabulary necessary for fundamental communication skills
▪ Instill concepts of both Spanish and Catalan languages by introducing interactive activities
▪ Use structural methods and materials appropriate for instruction success
▪ Assess student accomplishments and work with them on weak areas
My lessons & teaching style
I have already been working for Italki and as you can see in my records and references from my students (many) I am a very dedicated teacher who adapts the classes to the necessities of the students. Thanks to my vast linguistic knowledge, a Master's degree in language teaching and more than 6 years of experience as a language teacher (including the period I was actively working at Italki and rated as one of the top teachers), I have been and I still am one of the most dedicated teachers that your platform has had, with guaranteed outstanding results.
Therefore, I would like to start again my activity in this platform and recover my Teaching Profile and my references. Thanks in advance!

Nando, What a guy! Loving having lessons with him. He’s a super-intelligent guy and very well educated in his proper field of study. One might call him “the king of Spanish” due to his extensively detailed knowledge of the language. He literally knows all the nooks of the language. Foolishnesses aside, he’s an awesome guy, very friendly, is able to pinpoint exactly what I need and I am learning a lot.

Nando is a very attentive teacher. He is able to detect your weaknesses within the language quickly and helps you strengthen them. He is very well-spoken and easy to understand with extensive general knowledge which makes conversations both beneficial and interesting. Nando is also very engaging and supportive. He is also a very prepared tutor who goes above and beyond the sessions to help as he often prepares materials outside of the sessions to help you. Above all, my conversations with Nando are interesting and fun, the time always flys by!

If you are looking for a wonderfully organized teacher with great attention to detail who is friendly and encouraging, you should certainly sign up for a class with Nando. Today we covered basics in the language: alphabet, sounds, combinations of sounds that are often challenging, particularly for native English speakers. Nando used various aspects of Croatian culture as a prism through which to aptly explain structure of the language, conventional usage, and other details that are integral to the language. We began first with a dialogue, which I enjoyed because it got me producing sounds from the language immediately. As you can see from the length of my comments, this was indeed a really good lesson and I will definitely be continuing as his student. Hvala puno, Nando. Vidimo se uskoro.

I'm not an easy student because I have already studied quite a few other languages and have an informal knowledge of Spanish. However, Nando very quickly assessed my needs and devised a way of working that would help me make the progress I'm aiming for. Would highly recommend!

Nando is awesome! I loved my lesson with him--he was extremely motivating and helpful. He went through the history of the Croatian alphabet with me as well as taught me basic phrases in our trial lesson. Nando's language abilities are insane and his teaching is just as great. Highly recommend!

My First session with Nando was great. As a teacher he was motivating, insightful, and methodical. I am excited for the linguistic and cultural journey that lies ahead.
