About Maria

NATIVE, EXPERIENCED AND QUALIFIED SPANISH TEACHER

After my experience as a student in some foreign countries (Spain, France, Slovenia, England), and after accumulating a few years of experience in different schools around the world, I have confirmed that one of the best ways to implement an active, responsible and motivational attitude in the face of my professional career, is by achieving teaching experiences abroad.

That is why, just after finishing my degree in Madrid, I decided to move to England. Since October 2016, I’ve been working as Spanish teaching assistant in two High Schools in Leeds, helping students and teachers to achieve the objectives that are proposed for this academic year. In order to do it, I prepare motivational materials and activities and I mostly work in small groups to achieve a good mark in their GCSE and A Levels exams. I have also experience with differents levels (from children to adults) in private lessons.

At the same time, I have never stop learning the best way to teach my language, working and studying in the Instituto Cervantes, an Institution that promotes Spanish language throughout the world as well as Spain's co-official languages, in addition to fostering knowledge of the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries.

This year, I got a job in a school in London, and I would like to complement it with my passion: teaching spanish in private lessons.

One of the most important goals that I propose as a Spanish teacher, is to instil in students the importance of learning new modern languages to be part of the globalization that is being developed in this new world. It is a unique opportunity for the students to take advantage of the oral and written skills that a native, well qualified and professional Spanish teacher could offer, as well as giving you opportunity to get closer with the marvellous culture to which I belong.

I have been trained to teach to any levels, and I`ve experience all of them. I like to prepare and organise my classes well, in order to take advantage of every single minute of the lessons.

I would be grateful for the opportunity to demonstrate my capabilities as soon as you want. I look forward to hearing from you.

MFL Teacher

Written by Alberto P
At Temple moor High School, María has prepared lessons, always taking account of individual students’ needs. She has particularly stood out for the use of her up to date authentic materials from her home country of Spain as well as materials that she had designed and prepared herself. She has worked extensive with Year 12 and 13 students, preparing them in depth for their speaking exams and also helping them to improved their written skills

She very quickly got on with all the students with her lovely manner and she was very popular with as they improved enormously their speaking and written skills while she was helping them. She was able to quickly judge the ability level of the students she worked with and pitched the speed and level of language she used perfectly. Students worked well with her as she always put them at their ease. She was very flexible and was always very helpful. She was also an excellent team-player and always worked according to departmental policies and she took the initiative wherever it was necessary. She was always very professional with students and staff and she has established excellent working relationships with all students and all colleagues.

It has been a joy and a pleasure working with María and we are greatly appreciated with all her contribution to the Spanish department. We are going to miss her as her work has been outstanding. It is going to be hard to get someone else with her attributes.
