« Perfect! Cecilia is exactly what I hoped my experience with a Spanish tutor would be like. I have studied Spanish for years and have never had a tutor with whom I feel more compatible. In the first class, she asked me what I wanted to learn. I told her I wanted to practice listening, speaking, reading, and writing. With her, I am able to practice these skills every class. When I make a mistake, she corrects me in a respectful way. I have had many classes with her and I'm looking forward to many more. »

Native Spanish Teacher with 20 years experience - online classes for teens or adults.

Methodology

I like to teach in a respectful and relaxed atmosphere, identifying the strengths of the student and building new knowledge from that starting point. I believe the key is to introduce new concepts gradually and systematically, concentrating on the communication aspect of the language.

Super Prof

Cecilia is one of our best tutors. High-quality profile and excellent qualifications, organized and responsive to lesson requests, appreciated by their students!

Background

I have an MA in Communications and a BA in Tesol (Teaching English to students of other languages). I have been teaching for over 20 years to students of all ages - although in the past years I mainly worked with teens and adults.

Perfect! Cecilia is exactly what I hoped my experience with a Spanish tutor would be like. I have studied Spanish for years and have never had a tutor with whom I feel more compatible. In the first class, she asked me what I wanted to learn. I told her I wanted to practice listening, speaking, reading, and writing. With her, I am able to practice these skills every class.

Cecilia's response

Great! Mike is extremely motivated and serious in his objective to improve his knowledge and use of Spanish.

Good afternoon! I have known Cecilia for at least 20 years, we used to work together at the same school. What I always admired in Cecilia is her enthusiasm, creativity and organization. Every class has a well defined objective which is adapted to the needs of each student. She is definetely very encouraging, very pleasant and friendly towards students. I would definetly recommend Cecilia to join the Superprof members. She would be a great asset!

I've known Cecilia for more than 20 years and also worked for her. She worked at schools, universities and been abroad many times. She is not only a hard working teacher but also funny, energetic and kind one. Learning with her is the outmost overwhelming experience you can have. She is the best!
