- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
My name is José, I am from Spain and I am really excited to be your next Spanish teacher. I have been teaching for a long time and I am currently very involved in the design of teaching materials too. I will adapt and design personalized classes according to your needs.
I have been teaching for 4 years and I have ample experience with different age range. Whether you have to prepare for you high school exams or to pass those college classes I am here to help you.
I am a certified teacher from Spain. I majored in English in college and after that I got a M.A. in Education and Spanish teaching for foreigners.
Since then, I have worked for different institutions such as high schools in Spain, Middlebury programs, IES study abroad programs, and I am currently working as a language instructor at Pomona College.
I am passionate about languages and I always try to keep up with the current language learning methodologies in order to offer the best to my students. For this reason, I not only became fluent in English but I learnt (and keep learning) German, French and Italian.
I believe that developing a good atmosphere and helping the students get over the fears of making mistakes is a key factor in language learning, and I will make sure to bring that to our lessons.
Best Spanish teacher ever!!!
Cuando empezé a tener clases con José mi nivel de español como segunda lengua era intermedio, pero quería mejorar mi vocabulario académico para expresarme de manera más formal en el entorno universitario y José me ayudó a conseguirlo!
Trabajamos sobre todo con artículos y ensayos que él iba seleccionando para cada clase sobre temas específicos y su método se basaba sobre todo en la práctica y en la conversación, así que la clase no resultaba nunca aburrida!
Además, la experiencia con él fue interesante porque añadía curiosidades y anédoctas que me ayudaron a comprender muchos aspectos de la cultura española.
José is a fantastic Spanish language teacher. I have had him as an instructor in a university setting for two years. He is patient, insightful, and creative in his teaching methods, always keeping students engaged. He has taught me a lot about Spanish popular culture, both thematically and linguistically. He has also provided an appropriate balance of correction and encouragement: he helps me not feel embarrassed about my speaking, while simultaneously correcting my errors as I go. Five stars.Show More
I would highly recommend Jose. He was very patient with me as I decided to start studying Spanish again at Uni in the US. He actually helped me correct my accent and my grammar very quickly. I appreciated the fact that he was a very open person and that he was also willing to adapt the level of English and Spanish for me as Spanish is a 3rd language for me (I'm French). Really nice and reliable person, I will take more lessons with him.Show More
Jose is THE best Spanish teacher I ever had! His spontaneous and open-minded, but at the same time highly-prepared and encouraging teaching has made me feel really comfortable expressing myself in Spanish. I learnt so much with Jose. The lessons with him truly took my Spanish to another level. I definitely recommend him!Show More
