My name is Elena and I am 29 years old. I am Spanish, but since October 2015 I have been living in England. I am teaching Spanish here to adults and teenegers. I study Philosophy and a Teacher Training Master. In Spain I taught Spanish for six years, both private lessons as refresher classes at a Secondary school. I love to teach, and all my studies and experience are about education. I also love the Spanish, my language, so teach Spanish is interesting, motivating and fun for me. I really enjoy teaching Spanish. I'm used to prepare my classes, do my teaching schedules for each student, seek, create, adapt and organize materials and resources for my classes. Regarding my character, I am so patient, wich I think is essential to teach. I am also enthusiastic, and I am able to transmit that enthusiasm to my students and motivate, encourage and support them. In my lessons, I always teach some new content (always followed by exercises to practice what they have learned), and I also review thinghs that the student have leart before. By exercises I understand written, oral, listening exercises, watching videos, songs, games and different techniques to get the student talk. I like to do a balance between all these resources, mixing the most "boring" or static things, with others that are more fun and dynamic, because then I get the student's attention does not wane. And another thing that I find very important and I always do is adapt the lesson to each student (giving more emphasis on things the student has more problems, giving them more material and giving materials to practice on their own). But I also adapt the lesson according with their personal preferences. Therefore, balanced and personalized classes, so that students have more success learning Spanish.
