Hello! I am a Native Speaking English teacher for children and adults in Barcelona
My name is Ciera, and I have been living in Barcelona for the past 4 years. Originally from the United States, I came to Barcelona to study and decided to stay here to teach English classes. I have worked in various academies, but I prefer the flexibility of private English classes.
I meet with each potential student to define their language goals and desired outcomes. From this meeting, we work together to decide the direction that the classes will take. While some students prefer to practice conversation to gain confidence speaking, others might prefer to practice testing materials to prepare for a certification exam. Each class is designed for the specific student's needs so that the student gains the optimal benefit from individual classes.
I enjoy working with all ages of students, from very young children learning their first phrases of English to adults who want to gain more competence in the workplace.
Lastly, I believe that motivation is the key to success in learning a language. I like to track my student's progress at the end of each lesson by assesing whether the activities were useful for them, and we review the themes learned in each lesson. I believe that this is a practice which maintains student engagement and confidence to come back to the next class!
