Mis métodos cambian con las necesidades de cada alumno, pero sobre todo hablarse en inglés cuando se pueda. Para asegurar una experiencia completa, prefiero utilizar una mezcla de gramática(más para tareas) y realia(artículos de periodicos, reportajes, cartas etc.). Otra cosa muy importante es que se puede disfrutar las lecciones. Por mi experiencia he visto que si se le da perezca la idea de tomar clases, y vergüenza para hablar, el alumno sufre, así busco las materias más divertidas.
También tengo mis redes sociales. Búscame en como Elmaestroenforma y encuentras definiciones descriptivas en mis programas, o textos bilingües en mi blog de wordpress.
Llevo 11 años dando clases de inglés, y 5 años como estudiante de español. Como alguien que ha aprendido de forma autodidacta, entiendo los problemas.
Aquí en españa llevo 3 años, todos en madrid. Tengo experiencia con alumnos de todos tipos desde, pre escolar hasta profesores universitarios y profesionales.

Aug 2017- Present
Position: Content Creator
Details: Last year I decided that I wanted to create something any of my students could access at anytime. Inspired by what I had learned while studying in preparation to teach a university professor, and empowered with the knowledge gleaned from my time with her. I decided to launch a social media channel called @elmaestroenforma. Elmaestroenforma is a channel on instagram and facebook, with the majority of the posts also available on Linkedin. On this channel I have 3 complete programs with two more which are still currently running, with over 750 posts in total, all dedicated to English students. I have also recently created a blog elmaestroenforma.wordpress.com in which I have weekly posts written in both Spanish and English, empowering students to read in English/Spanish without the need for a dictionary.
Mar 2007- Present
Position: Private English Tutor
Details: Providing students of all ages with classes in English designed to fit the needs of each student. Initially, this was voluntary work which normally took place at my place of work. As such during the first 8 years my students were all adults. However, I also taught Spanish as a private tutor to an English school girl for which I was paid for. Following my arrival in Madrid I have worked with a wide array students ranging from 2 years old to 60. With regards to students in the education system, I currently have 4 classes a week with children both in primary and secondary. This year and last I have taught, and advised a professor who was teaching a Masters in Marketing at Carlos III University which is taught in English. I have been helping an opositor prepare for the Lieutenant exam in the national police, which he passed with flying colours. Since my arrival in Madrid I have had 16 different private classes, the majority have been one on one while several have been group classes with the majority of students in my tutelage for a year, if not longer.

Details: Providing lessons in grammar, conversation and pronunciation in office to individuals and small groups, both in office and at home. Lessons are tailored to the students needs, whether this is exam preparation, business english, or english for english teachers. Teachers are provided with materials, and actively encouraged to supplement those given materials. Since my arrival, I have had over 50 students with the vast majority staying for a minimal of 9 months. Of those that have been under my tutelage for less time, it has been largely due to the fact many students request intensive classes in preparation for exams like the Cambridge Advanced and Proficiency exams, Ilect, or la selectividad.

I also have sporadic experience over the last 10 years looking after my niece who requires special care due to her rare medical condition. In this capacity I was responsible for the young lady several hours at a time day or night. Whilst this has been sporadic, it has served as am invaluable learning experience.
