Spanish tutor online
Hi there! My name is Sara and I help people who want to learn Spanish to communicate in my mother tongue: Spanish. I’ve helped people who have learned to:
SPEAK IN SPANISH to be able to communicate in Spanish speaking countries
SPEAK IN SPANISH to be able to communicate with native Spanish speakers
COMMUNICATE IN SPANISH through writing
GET TO KNOW the Hispanic culture
Pass the DELE exam
I use a motivating method so the learning environment is more enjoyable and also to create a stronger relationship between Spanish and students of this language. If you’d like to know more about my method visit this website.
A bit about me
A little bit about my personal life
I was born in Málaga. My mom never liked to name their children as her parents or as children traditionally had been named in the family so she decided to call me Sara. Since I have been little I have loved dancing and that’s why I took flamenco lessons until I turned fourteen. I danced at the same time that I saw how my mom taught classes to children at school and that awakened my desire to help others through teaching. I have always lived in Málaga although I’ve travelled a lot with my family: Switzerland, France, Portugal, Italy, Morocco, etc. but it was in my last year at university when I decided to travel the world on my own to study the languages I thought back then were going to be my working languages in depth.
I spent several weeks in Rome where I met wonderful people and I had an unforgettable experience. I could put into practice everything I had learned at university and see for myself how life in Italy was. I also took that opportunity to learn how teachers at the school I was in taught their classes: their method, their explanations and their capacity to connect with their students.
After my stay in Rome, I went back to Málaga to finish my studies. Right after this I started one of the most rewarding experiences of my life: my stay in Caen, France. There, I was surrounded by people of different cultures who spoke different languages and everyone could communicate to each other in French!
Before going back home for good to focus on what I like the most, I lived in London where I found out how life in London was and at the same time, I improved my English.
After all of these experiences, I came back to Spain but I moved to Madrid with my best friend and partner. Here, I started my professional path as freelancer and as a salaried employee of a French multinational where I learned a lot about the business world.
My professional career
I graduated with a degree in Translation and have a MA in Specialized Translation (legal and economic translation). From the moment I started my studies until I decided to travel and study in foreign countries, I have balanced study and work. Besides, I have done specialized courses at university and private schools. One of these courses is the specialized course of Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language in one of the ELE schools in Málaga. Not only did I learn in this school but also I had my first experience as a teacher. Regarding new technologies and online teaching, I have learned everything I know in an autodidactic way and introducing it in my teaching experience with really good results. I will briefly summarize my career path since the beginning:
My first stable job was at El Corte Inglés. I worked as a fashion label salesperson where I learned not only customer service but also a very specialized language from the fashion world. After this great experience that lasted several years, I started tutoring children that needed my help with their homework. Parents were very happy with me because their children improved their marks a lot. This encouraged me to work as a full-time teacher and that’s why I decided to start teaching language lessons as a freelance specializing in Spanish as a foreign language lessons and specifically, in Spanish lessons online.In the ELE teaching field, I’ve worked with many individuals that wanted to learn or improve their Spanish. I helped them via online and the results have been excellent. I have also learned a lot: thanks to them I know what the real problems are when people learn Spanish and which are their fears and motivations. I have also worked as a Spanish teacher at EF both in Málaga and Madrid and my experience goes from teaching Spanish to young people to teaching executives of big companies. One of the last persons that have put their trust in me to learn Spanish comes from the international diplomacy for whom I have designed a study plan totally personalized and adapted to his needs.
My working methodology
I like to know my students’ goals to be able to offer them my best as a professional and this way help them to achieve them.
I prefer to stay up all night working on a study plan than spend three months working on one half done.
Everything I do as a Spanish teacher is aimed at my student’s needs.
Besides being “profe Sara”, I also like to be my students’ best ally: better results are achieved with a trust relationship.
I continuously bring myself up-to-date to offer the best and latest to those who trust in me to learn Spanish.
It’s easier to learn a language with a motivating method that drives you to achieve your goals; that’s why I invite my students to share two of my favorite motivating methods with me and that are part of my method: music and cooking
