Über Mich

Hi everyone, my name is Simon and I've been teaching English for 14 years here in Spain. Previously to living here I had studied piano and was giving classes in piano, muscial theory and guitar. Upon arriving to Spain I didn't have a good level of Spanish and so I decided to do a course to help me get started as an English teacher, and I've never looked back!
I have worked as a private teacher and also in many academies in Barcelona and also in the province of Alicante.
In class I like to make a personal connection with my students and get to the essence of what each pupil is looking for.
I enjoy encouraging students to speak English in a natural and informal way according to the personality and requirements that each of us have. I stress the importance of correct pronunciation and word choice and make pupils aware of the 'rhythm' and flow of the language.
I agree with the concept that we learn more when we're having fun so humour is an important element in my approach to learning.
