For businesses in Madrid: I teach “General
English”, “Business English”
and “English Conversation ” at
companies in central Madrid and La Castellana area as
well as private English classes at my centrally located
residence in the Glorieta de Bilbao. Whether it be
for exam preparation, for improving your on-the-job
English, or basic maintenance and revision for English
as your second language.
With wide experience as a freelance English
teacher in Madrid, I have taught specialized English classes
at banks, shipping companies, to architects, sporting
event promoters, pharmaceutical personnel, and publishing executives.
I have also been a teaching coordinator for several years.
Just a few of the companies I have worked at as a freelance
teacher are: BBVA; Grupo Santillana De Ediciones,
S. L.; Crisol; Dorna Sports S. L.; Abarrategui Arquitectura-Urbanización;
Ediciones del Prado, S.A. I continue to teach executives
at some of these companies.
I form part of a group of professional
freelance teachers who are firm believers in a
direct student/teacher relationship with no academies or
agencies serving as intermediaries. Our sole
common purpose is to offer the best service to our
The Way I Work:
I accommodate the timetable and needs of the
student / groups and see to it that time in class is spent
speaking English with a minimum of exercises and a maximum
of variety. My classes are pleasant and participatory.
Depending on the wishes of the students, their level and needs,
we can follow a course and back up their progress with complementary
material from the radio, newspapers, specialized magazines,
exercise books, web pages, etc. (which I am constantly updating).
Or, we simply employ this varied material in conversation
and, whenever any difficulty or grammar question comes up,
stop for a brief revision before moving on to more new things.
This is language learning: discovery of the world around
us—new things. And learning enjoyably and in comfortable
surroundings makes for ever greater progress. From day
one, student and teacher will only speak in English.
Apart from class activities, I am always happy to assign
as much homework as the student wishes and then personally
correct it with him/her the following class. I also
provide individual progress reports as often as the company
preliminary meeting is necessary-- with no
obligation-- in order to determine the student’s
language level as well as to discuss the methodology,
timetable, and class days. Once an agreement has
been reached, there is no need for any signatures or
advance payment. We will agree to fees which, in
price and quality, no academy / purveyor of
teachers (often with little experience) can ever
hope to match.
38€ per hour for companies and 30€ per hour
for one to one private classes in my studio.
