My name is Silvia and I am a highly qualified native Spanish Language Teacher, who has 9 years’ experience in designing and delivering bespoke Spanish courses to professionals.
My students come from established companies in Central London, mostly in the financial and insurance sector. These include: Banco Santander, AON, Parthenon-EY, British American Tobacco, and the European Medicines Agency.
I have taught students individually and on a group basis to speak fluently in Spanish, allowing them to use Spanish confidently in a range of contexts and improve their general and business communication.
My lessons focus on communication. This means that everything we will study, whether grammar or vocabulary, will be developed within a meaningful context.
- General Spanish Lessons
During these lessons, I will develop your writing, reading, speaking, and listening skills in Spanish simultaneously. If you are a beginner, my general Spanish lessons will provide you with a solid base in the language. In case you are a more advanced student, I can help refine your communication skills.
However, I can also tailor such lessons to work on conversational Spanish, focusing on real life situations. This is particularly relevant if you intend to travel to Spain or Latin America, and require competency. You can be confident in any situation-- whether at the restaurant, airport, taxi, hotel, and more.
-Professional Spanish Lessons.
These lessons focus on Business Language Skills and acquiring cultural competence in Spanish and Latin American working culture. I will give you the right language skills to navigate through cultural differences and overcome communication problems. Not only will you become a confident communicator, but you will also enhance your business skills.
Students can have confidence in my educational and professional background. My Audiovisual Communication Degree (Universitat de Barcelona) allows me to communicate Spanish language ideas in a concise and influential manner. I have also completed a Humanities Degree (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona), and a Masters degree in History (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona) which have given me a thorough understanding of History, Politics, and Culture-- some of the most interesting topics to a student.
In addition, I have earned an ELE Diploma in Spanish as a Second Language. This means that I can deliver bespoke and effective lessons on a consistent basis. Students always find my lessons motivating and enjoyable.
Originally from Barcelona, I teach Spanish with an excellent Castilian accent. In light of Spanish being a global language, I have also spent considerable time in Latin America: Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and other Spanish-speaking countries. This allows me to answer any linguistic and cultural questions on Spanish usage outside of Spain.
I am proud to be a dynamic, motivational, and organized person who is dedicated to bringing out the best in each Spanish student. As a problem-solver, I intend to offer effective solutions to language problems in any context, and bring considerable value to students both now and in future. More than that, I never stop learning and innovating my teaching approach, because I understand that every student is different. Passionate about travelling and intercultural relations, I enjoy getting to know people from every background.
