Hi student! My name is Pilar, I am from Venezuela but I currently live in Spain.
Teaching Spanish is one of my passions and I like that my students also feel passionate about learning and improving their skills every day.
I firmly believe that learning Spanish should be fun, exciting and inspiring. My main goal is for my students to learn, improve and achieve their goals.
In my classes we will focus not only on grammar, but also on your pronunciation, comprehension, interaction and writing. You will learn by speaking, reading, writing and listening. You will improve your Spanish through simple explanations and we will focus on your interests and hobbies. All my classes include: personalized study plan, audiovisual materials, assignments and tests.
I have been a Spanish teacher (ELE) since 2018. I have studied at the Center for Applied Linguistics (CELA), the Cálamo y Cran training center and I am currently still training with ELE International. In my classes I apply the eclectic and communicative method, depending on the needs of my students. If you want to learn Spanish in a personalized and fun way, you are motivated and committed, do not hesitate to schedule a class with me. See you soon!

TL;DR: I've worked with her over a month, have already purchased lessons through the end of the year. It's absolutely worth it, she's amazing, look no further. Pilar's best qualities as a professor are: ** Flexible, friendly, and energetic ** Things do get busy in my life and it can be difficult to prioritize lessons, homework, and general study of Spanish. Pilar is always thoughtful to these needs, never rushes a lesson, and has been helpful even in the case when I've needed to reschedule. What's more, is that even when I'm not prepared or mentally focused for a lesson, I can always depend on Pilar's positive attitude to energize and excite me, ultimately ensuring that we both get to have a good time. Most of all, she constantly asks for feedback, seeking to tweak every aspect of the experience to exactly what her students want and need. ** Creative, detailed, and organized ** When I started this process, given that I was a bit more advanced, Pilar asked me what I wanted to talk about in order to engage my Spanish skills. I came out of left-field with requests like "leftist policy, feminism, pop music, and LGBTQ+ issues." Pilar took my request and ran with it, finding articles and podcasts or creating lesson plans and practice sheets that blew me away. Pilar knows that studying languages can be challenging and strives to make the experience engaging for you. ** Knowledgable, accredited, and reputable ** Though I knew that I wanted to become certified when I started working with Pilar, I had not done a great deal of research on my options. Pilar came with knowledge about the programs I could pursue, and how to structure our time together to help me meet my goals. Beyond this, Pilar clearly has engaged with language learning from an academic perspective, and is able to communicate abstract language rules and patterns through simple examples and clear documentation.
