Spanish lessons with a native from Spain experienced in helping other improve Spanish language skills

Methodology

I first want to know what the goals of the students are so that I can design specific strategies to help them achieve their needs. I always try to keep memorizing grammar rules at a minimum. Of my experience learning languages, and of students telling me which aspect are more difficult for them, I believe in teaching the language as easy as possible. I try to make a balance between typical expressions for a purpose (greetings, directions, time, etc) and basic vocabulary and encourage them to start building their own vocabulary notes and strategies. Besides, I like helping them in proper pronunciation, and understanding key words of a sentence so that they get the overall message

Background

I am a scientist working in microbiology, and I have been working in United Kingdom and United States from more than 10 years. I have been training training and teaching biology techniques to students in the lab. Besides, I have volunteered in teaching Spanish individually or in groups. I have helped people to improve their speaking skills, trying to make Spanish learning an easy task.
I enjoy teaching my language and culture, and it is also rewarding to learn from every person I have helped
