Su di me

I am currently looking for new students so my rates are lower than what I normally charge. Book now to lock in this lower rate!

My name is Andrea and I was born in Great Yarmouth, a city on the west coast of England. I then moved to Aberdeen, Scotland where I first learned Spanish. I then lived in Venezuela and then Peru. I finished university in Austin, Texas and lived there for 10 years before I moved to Spain.

I have taught English (as well other subjects) for almost 13 years. I have focused exclusively on Business English for the last 7 years because it allows me to continue to use all of the experience and vocabulary that I acquired while working in Texas (worked in IT, engineering and healthcare).

As I have taught a variety of students, I always try to find each student's preferred learning method. I like to use a variety of class material including a lot of "real" material. I like to help my students feel like English is their language by helping them to trust their intuition. I help my students to focus on the language in context and include grammar as a way to communicate. I believe language learning is personal so I try to connect the language to my students' lives. I want them to leave class and be able to use the language learned right away.

I love learning about new things! I enjoy reading about linguistics, economics, science (especially medicine), and global politics. My passion is art.
