Teaching since:
2008

I have been teaching professionally for 10 years in different countries such as Ireland, Turkey and Spain, always at the Instituto Cervantes and several universities as well. I do love what I do and I always adapt to the students needs, I am very patient and love to teach one to one lessons as well as groups. I'm very flexible about the time and where to give them, always ready to new challenges and goals from my students. I'm online most of the time so you're more than welcome to ask me any questions or doubts, as well as corrections when you're at home.
