I have spent the past two years living in Spain and teaching English as a second language. I was working in a secondary public school as a Language and Culture Assistant where I was responsible for giving lessons and presentations to the English classes and engaging students in English conversation.
During my time in Spain I also developed a client base for tutoring both children and adults in small groups and one-on-one in the English language. These classes would either focus on grammar, conversation, listening, reading and/or writing. It all depended on what the individuals had a desire to work on or improve.
I also held a job teaching English at a company in Spain. I worked with a few small groups of beginner adults teaching them grammar basics along with vocabulary. We also worked on conversation, listening and dialogue.
I feel that my prior experience of teaching English as a second language in a foreign country has prepared me to effectively reach the needs, interests and skills of a non-native English speaker. I enjoy working with individuals and small groups in helping them reach their goals. I have spent the past two years living in Spain and teaching English as a second language.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have two years of experience teaching English as a second language. I was living in Spain teaching English at a public secondary school working with both students and the teachers in the bilingual department. I also tutored English to adults and children one-on-one and in small groups helping them meet their goals and interests.
