My teaching method is based on a CELTA approach. We look at skills such as writing, reading, speaking and listening as well as grammar and vocabulary. In general, the methodology consists of focusing on maximazing the student's participation as opposed to a teacher-oriented approach.
Although I am originally from Spain (Tenerife), I began my British adventure living for six months in a tiny village of the west coast of Scotland called Arrochar. Then I decided to travel to Ireland (Dublin) for a year and back to Scotland, where I spent another half a year living in Edinburgh. Finally, I have established myself in Aberdeen where I have spent almost fourteen years.
I am an English and CELTA graduate who has been giving Spanish and English language lessons for a year. During that time I have taught over 25 students both in groups and individually. Some of these students just wanted to achieve a good enough level to allow them to travel to either English or Spanish speaking countries, whereas others got to pass college language exams.

I enjoy communicating and team working, but I do not necessarily have to depend on others in order to come up with good results. I am very adaptable, congenial, interested in cooperation and getting the task done.

Team work and planning
Team work was important to be successful during my university years, as me and my peers had to team up to do presentations. Also my CELTA course involved a great deal of planning lessons for our students as well as anticipating problems.
Bar tenders need to have good listening skills, as they establish relationships with customers as a part of the job. It was also a helpful ability during my time as a camp leader and student teacher.
Teaching/ training others
Constructive training and supervision has been an integral part of my job as a bar supervisor and as a student teacher.
Self-discipline and planning
Both my last years at university and my teaching training involved sticking to schedule for tutorials,
lectures as well as lesson planning.
Able to motivate others
My personality type is mostly INPF (introversion, intuition, feeling, perception). I consider myself much more an inspirational leader than a managerial one. If I truly believe in something, I have a strong sense of determination no matter how difficult the goal might be. That is how I have inspired others, and also how I get inspired by people around me.
Can use Microsoft Office, PowerPoint, email and the internet.
