Bienvenido/a a mi perfil. Me llamo Christelle y soy profesora. ¡Encantada!

I was born in Argentina and spent the first half of my life there and then moved to Spain, where I lived until 2016 when I moved to Chicago area.

While I was still getting my Bachelor's Degree in English Philology in Barcelona, I started working in language schools teaching English to all ages.
I worked as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher for almost 7 years. I have experience with children as young as 1 y/o, one-to-one lessons, small and large groups.

I am currently working as a Spanish and Art teacher in a private school in Oak Brook, Fusion Academy. I work with high schoolers who struggle learning in conventional learning environments.
I also have a Spanish Teacher certification from International House Barcelona and I am an official DELE (Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language) examiner certified by Instituto Cervantes. I am currently working on my Masters of Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.

ABOUT MY PRIVATE LESSONS

I can help you improve your current level of Spanish, help your children with Spanish at school, or teach you Spanish from scratch!

LOCATIONS
I live in Bloomingdale and work in the DuPage county area. I meet most of my students in local coffee shops like Starbucks or Panera, but at-home lessons are possible as well.

FEES
I charge $50 per hour per person, but fees are negotiable, especially if we meet more than once a week or in groups. I will take location into account.

LESSON FREQUENCY AND LENGTH

It would depend on your goals. School tutoring usually requires less time because we work on homework. Anything else needs a greater degree of commitment! I meet my students at least for one hour once or twice per week.

TEACHING METHOD
For school tutoring I try to adapt to your school's method. For other types of lessons, I prefer avoiding translation and memorization and I use a communicative approach and focus on oral and written fluency.

SCHEDULE / AVAILABILITY
I am generally available for lessons on Monday to Friday afternoons.

RESCHEDULING / CANCELLATIONS / PUNCTUALITY
I understand flexibility is convenient and appreciated, so I allow rescheduling and cancellations in case of emergency or with enough advance notice. I recommend students to stick to their agreed schedule if they want to achieve their goals, even if that means to meet at another time during that same week. If I am already on my way to your lesson and you need to cancel, I will charge for the lesson. If you know you are going to be late, please let me know, and I cannot guarantee that I can stay later than our scheduled time.

FIRST LESSON
During our first lesson we will take time to go over any important information, set our goals and answer questions regarding nature of our lessons. We can talk about fees and teaching materials during this lesson as well.

For any more details or any questions, please don’t hesitate contacting me!

Drawing

I am freelance illustrator based in Chicago. Raised in Argentina and Spain, I divide my time between my job as a teacher and my passion for art. I do traditional art, mostly pen and ink, Copic markers and watercolors. I love creating unique and quirky art that makes both children and adults feel curious and fascinated with the world. My main interest is children's books illustration and character design. I also love doing quick pencil caricatures or portraits. I am both fluent in English and Spanish.

Creative and Unique Approach

Strong knowledge in Spanish language and the various dialects. She keeps the lessons interesting, progressive and adapts the lessons to the student. Highly recommended.

David, 41 lessons with Christelle

Well-prepared and easy to work with.

Christelle is always on time, prepared and patient. She’s really helping me get ready for the DELE exam this May, and without her I would have problems that I didn’t even realize were issues. Thanks, Christelle!

Darren, 41 lessons with Christelle

Energetic and knowledgeable

We discussed what I am hoping to accomplish. She was well prepared and knew just where to start for me. She is very energetic and has a lot of passion for what she does. I have tried to learn Spanish and have been struggling, but she has me excited and committed to learning. I am looking forward to working with her and I feel confident this is the right match for me.

Great First Lesson!

Christelle was great! We sat down and discussed the goal my son had (doing well on his next Spanish exam) and Christelle helped us develop an action plan. Waking out of our first session, I could see my son feeling more comfortable with his vocabulary words and understanding how to conjugate verbs better. We have 3 more sessions before his test. I think he is on the right track thanks to Christelle.
