Hello dear students!
My name is Cristina and I’m a Spanish / Catalan native speaker from Valencia (Spain).
If you find yourself thinking...
- I‘m stuck even after studying Spanish since childhood
- I‘m afraid others won‘t understand my pronunciation
- I can‘t think in Spanish, I have to translate everything
If that‘s how you feel, I can change that. Here‘s how I know:
- I hold a BA degree in Translation Studies from Valencia University and a MA degree in Legal Translation (University of Alicante). I have also a postgraduate certificate in Modern Foreign Languages Teaching from Canterbury Christ Church University. Apart from my degrees from university, I hold certificates in teaching Spanish as a foreign language and in professional proofreading from European University of Madrid. And if that is not enough for you I am also an examiner for the Cervantes Institute, and that means that I perfectly know how DELE exam works ;).
- I have 4 years of experience in teaching Spanish as a second language in a secondary school and a private company in Italy and another year of teaching experience in two Secondary schools in England. I also have 3 years of experience teaching adults in online platforms (+1300 hours taught).
- I use a communicative methodology. That is, I analyse your needs to create tailored and challenging lessons with the best resources to communicate and write clearly and effectively.
- I can guarantee a friendly and supportive environment during our lessons.
And lesson after lesson you‘ll get the strategies, practice and support to get unstuck, speak clearly and sound natural. You‘ll definitely be able to participate in discussions, feel in control when you speak and organise your thoughts in Spanish.
I have been studying and teaching languages most of my life and I understand the difficulties of learning a new language. So worry not and let‘s start this adventure together!

Cristina is an amazing teacher and I recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Spanish. Her lessons are always fun and diverse with a wide range of creative activities. Therefore, you’ll never get bored and I always look forward to learn with her. Regardless of your level, she's flexible and patient with the person's understanding of Spanish, and so each lesson is personalized accordingly. She has drastically improved my Spanish within a few months and boosted my confidence as she always encourages the person to trust himself. Most importantly is feeling comfortable and I have always felt that way with her ever since. I'm very grateful that I found a wonderful teacher 😊.
