My name is Raquel. I was born in Madrid, the capital of Spain, and the place where I grew up. In 2005, I moved to Segovia, a beautiful city near Madrid, well-known for its amazing cathedral and its spectacular Roman aqueduct.
I have a degree in Pre-primary Education (University of Valladolid), a Master’s degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language (University of Alcalá de Henares), a Spanish Teaching Certificate (International House Madrid), and I am an official DELE examiner from Instituto Cervantes.
I have worked as a Spanish private tutor and DELE examiner for Chamber of Commerce (Spain). In 2015, I started to teachSpanish to people with varying levels of proficiency through Skype.
In my lessons, I use a communicative methodology and I work all the skills (speaking, reading, listening, writing and interacting). I plan my lessons according your needs, interests and learning style. I combine a wide variety of resources and materials to make your learning be as true to life and enjoyable as possible. To that end, I use audios, videos, newspapers, magazines, books and everything that I consider useful for improving your learning. As an important part of learning Spanish, I will teach you about Spanish culture and traditions.
I love travelling, meeting new people and getting to know different cultures. This inclination has taken me to The United States and many European countries such as Italy, France, Denmark, Austria, England, Czech Republic, Holland and Ireland, where I lived for more than a year.
