My name is Santiago and I am a Spanish teacher. I give lessons online and in person. I started my professional career as an engineer, but after a few years I discovered that my real vocation was teaching languages. In 2009, I graduated as a Secondary School Teacher from Baleares University. Later I gained a Spanish teaching certification at Instituto Cervantes of Spain, the best and the most prestigious institution in the world to train and become a Spanish Teacher.
I have more than five years of teaching experience. I have developed a program customized to every student’s needs as some would rather focus on learning the language by simulation of real-life situations, while others would rather study grammar and understand each idiomatic structure. Until now all of my students have appreciated my approach to teaching, because I always make sure that I deliver the material in a simple and effective form.
I love travelling and meeting people from everywhere. I have lived in a lot of differents places. Recently I have come back to Spain from Holland. Now I live in Menorca. It is paradise here!
I am a very active person. I practice different sports: diving, swimming, paragliding, cycling. I also enjoy playing Spanish guitar, reading books, cooking and visiting museums.
I hope we get to work together on your Spanish.
