My name is Tania Ballesteros. I am a native Spanish teacher based in Madrid. I am from Colombia, so I speak Latin American Spanish. However, I am also knowledgeable about ´Castellano´ (Spanish from Spain) since I have lived here for over five years whilst doing my MSc and PhD in ecology. In addition, I have undertaken formal training in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
Using a communicative approach, I teach one-to-one and group classes focusing on developing the four language skills (listening, speaking, reading, writing) and language systems (grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation). I have taught language learners from A1 – C1 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
I am a dedicated and passionate teacher who believes that learning a language should be fun!
