Buenos días students!
This is Fátima and I offer Spanish classes.
I was born in Mexico to a Mexican family, more than twenty years ago. I was born in Jalisco, where we have tequila, mariachi and churros and I am actually living in the capital of this state, Guadalajara.
My father is a teacher so I have always had his guidance and inspiration. Since I was very little, I was saying I wanted to be a teacher and I was playing teaching with my siblings and dolls.
I started to speak before I could walk, that’s what my mom says. I like to consider linguistic intelligence as one of my strengths. I can speak with anyone for long periods of time, I like to listen and to share.
I am definitively in love with languages:
At university, I decided to study Hispanic literature and linguistics because I love reading and discovering new authors. During those studying years, I realized I am completely in love with my language!
I started studying English when I was twelve with a native teacher and I consider myself very fluent.
During my college years I studied German and Japanese and also Nawatl, a pre-Hispanic Mexican language. I know a little of each one, I like to think I could survive if I had to use one of them.
I loved being surrounded by books and people; I have even worked as a librarian for about a year! Very nice experience!
My students are normally adults, teenagers or kids.
With kids, we learn playing. The Internet offers several tools to play and learn online.
With teenagers, I normally support them in their school work and to improve marks and become fluent.
With adults, I use different approaches depending on the age and level. Normally I teach them grammar but I also speak Spanish a lot because conversation is one of the key to learn a language.
I normally use several materials in my classes: a regular book to learn grammar, audios, videos and readings for comprehension and to improve dictionary, movies, songs, etc.
About me, in my spare time, I also enjoy swimming, running and biking and one of my nonacademic goals is to participate in a triathlon race, one day. Fashion is another of my big interests. I always enjoy a nice meal, from any country that’s why I can cook many Mexican dishes. My friends say I’m like a grandma because I also do cross stitch and regular embroidery, I also use many Mexican sayings and know a little too much about teas and remedies for someone my age.
Fees are normally from 17 to 19 dollars per hour for individual classes or 22 to 25 dollars (in total) for group classes!!
Hereby, if you scroll down you can see the basic packs I offer and the fees as well.
Send me an e-mail and I’ll be happy to answer your questions and to set a TRIAL CLASSwith you to show you a bit of my method and to know you.
Price and conditions:
1- Try our free 1 hour trial lesson to see if you like method, teacher and media.
And if you like you can choose between two different options:
A- If you do not want to commit to a long period, you can pay in advance for a 5 weeks lesson pack for a great price.
The price is 19 dollars per hour in case of one person and 25 dollars per hour in case of a group class. The only thing you will have to do is to choose the number of hours you want to have per week on the window hereby.
B- If you want the best price, we also offer a 3 months (13 weeks) pack for only 17 dollars per hour in case of one person and 22 dollars per hour in case of group class.
The only thing you will have to do is to choose the number of hours you want to have per week on the window hereby.
- Payments are in advance as much as arrangements about schedules. In case of hectic schedules, we can arrange classes week by week.
- In case of the 5 weeks’ package, you can cancel or reschedule (with more than 24 hours notice) your lesson one week of five. If you will do it more than once, you will loose it/them; this means, that on a normal base, you have 6 weeks time to use your package of 5 weeks’ lessons.
In case of the 3 months’ package, you can cancel or reschedule (with more than 24 hours notice) twice; this means, that on a normal base, you have 15 weeks time to complete the 13 weeks package.
-If, during the lessons’ period, you have a trip or vacations planned, don’t worry, we can freeze the package for a 3 weeks period maximum as long as you are going to inform us with one or two weeks notice.
- If you bought a 3 months package and you do not want to continue afterwards at the end of the package, you will have to inform us 3 weeks before the end of it. In case you will not have done it, you will have to pay at least another 5 weeks package.
NOTE: We always apply a 24h notice policy in case of cancellation or rescheduling of the lesson.
