THE SYSTEM THAT GETS YOU TO THE FINISH LINE
WHILE
YOU LEARN & HAVE FUN ALONG THE WAY

Learn at your own pace through tiny daily increments.

Make the best use of your time & money from wherever thanks to online classes & tailored action plans.

Personalized materials in different formats (video tutorials, flashcards, audio files & infographics) to enhance your learning.

Go over to INTEGRATED LEARNING!
My purpose as an Online Spanish Tutor is to help you take control of your learning through a daily habit which gives you Energy & Motivation.
Get Involved In Your Learning With REAL-LIFE Experiences Because HERE Context Does Matter.

Some of these situations may sound familiar to you …

You have so little time and so much to do that improving your Spanish is an impossible mission.

You feel that your motivation and energy are like an effervescent tablet, soon the bubbles disappear. Demotivation and boredom gain control and you end up throwing in the towel.

You cannot commit yourself to your learning process at 100%. As a result, you don’t persevere and don’t achieve your goals.

You think grammar is not your cup of tea: you get tired of the typical dull and complex explanations as well as gap-fill exercises with no context. The outcome is that you aren’t able to apply it in real situations.

If there are two things that drive you crazy when you have to deal with real life, they are: fluency since you speak in fits and starts, and oral comprehension because you’re unable to understand what a native says to you or what you listen to in videos or podcasts.

In a nutshell, you feel that you are stuck with your Spanish and you can't find a way out.

Does learning Spanish really have to be difficult?

And what about finding a unique & different Online Spanish Tutor?

ICEBERG METHOD: THE SYSTEM THAT CHANGES THE WAY YOU LEARN SPANISH

If I were a chef instead of an Online Spanish Tutor, these would the essential ingredients to make every dish yummy:

PERFORMANCE

Boost your performance and hit your learning goals in record time from home or whenever. But don’t fool yourself! It’s not about getting to the finish line in first place, but really learning along the way, and become aware of your full potential. Wake up to your FULL ICEBERG!

DAILY HABIT

Achieve tangible and lasting results thanks to tiny daily increments. There are two key points on developing habits over time:

 

  • DESIGN in order to carry out the habit as simply as possible (Human beings tend to apply the “Minimum Effort Law”).

 

  • ENERGY supplied by the habit itself since how we get our energy is mostly what makes the habit endure.

FUN

It is scientifically proven that our brain needs to get excited to learn. The brain is guided more by its right hemisphere related to intuition, creativity and images. You need visual, creative and attractive items as a stimulus to be effective in the learning process.

 

And what better way to thrill your brain than through your passions?

CARE, GUIDANCE & PROTECTION

If we placed ourselves in an imaginary situation where you were running a race, I would be the one offering water to the runners on the sides.

 

  • CARE: I foresee your needs in advance and then provide for those needs.

 

  • GUIDANCE: I guide you along the way to help you come to your own decisions.

 

  • PROTECTION: You work, you get home tired and what you least feel like is to do the typical “homework”. I already know it.

That’s why I have designed a daily workout system in weekly project form based on your interests and tailored with care only for you so you can advance at your own pace by doing things you enjoy.

I don’t believe in instant results. I teach through a system that provides lasting skills. This allows you not only to move forward and improve, but also to create solid learning habits.
Anyone can learn Spanish without giving up fun or being overwhelmed by the thousands of options you find online. Because this is NOT just another method: it’s about changing your habits and the way you conceive your learning.
I help you turn Spanish into a hobby so you can keep it for the rest of your life.

Who Is Behind The ICEBERG?

Hi! I’m Laura, your Online Spanish Tutor.

At school they made me believe that I’d never be good at English. That fact marked me in a positive way as you can see now.

I help students to improve their Spanish in an easy, down-to-earth and enjoyable way. Learn in an organized way, with no fears to make mistakes and with tons of fun through your interests & hobbies.

 

If I had to define myself in two words, they would be: HUNGRY LEARNER.

 

I don’t believe in chance but I do in causality. Becoming an Online Spanish Tutor started as a burning desire and then, with hard work and perseverance, I have turned it into a reality.

A tiny insight into how my online classes work

You can buy different class packages of 5, 10 and 20 sessions. Ideally, you should receive one class per week where we discuss your performance in the weekly project, we practice real situations related to it, I clear your doubts up, and we sketch your next adventure.

 

The day after class, I send you via email all the instructions and materials that you need to start your new weekly project.

 

Classes are given through a free videocall platform (Skype, Zoom or Google Hangouts). Don’t worry if you don’t know how to use them because I can teach you. It is important for you to have a good Internet connection and I recommend you using desktop or laptop better than mobile phone.

What do class packages include?

60 MIN. / CLASS.

WEEKLY PROYECT: Planning + Follow-up + Feedback + Resources.

24/7 ONLINE SUPPORT (send me an email whenever you need).

Watch the video for further details with real examples where you can see the whole process behind a weekly project besides samples of materials so that you have a clear idea of what awaits you for experiencing and learning.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What happens if I need to cancel a class?

Don’t worry! We can all have an unforeseen event. Let me know 24 hours in advance via email and together we’ll look for a new date and time at NO charge.

 

Keep in mind that if you don’t show up and haven’t notified it, the class will be deducted from your package.

 

In case of you being late, you have 15-min-grace time which won’t be recovered at the end of class or in subsequent classes.

When can I take my online classes?

You can take your classes from Monday to Friday, from 8 am to 1 pm and from 3 pm to 8 pm (Spain time zone).

 

We can set class schedule before payment in case you know it beforehand or week by week according our availability (yours and mine).

What’s the payment method?

Payment for classes is via bank transfer. Class packages are paid in advance (minimum 2 days before get started).

 

We set the date and time for classes before payment and I send you a payment confirmation by email as receipt and guarantee.

Do class packages expire?

Class packages expire depending on which package you purchase:

 

  • ESKIMO Package with FIVE classes has an expiration date of 3 months.
  • IGLOO Package with TEN classes has an expiration date of 6 months.
  • ICEBERG Package with TWENTY classes has an expiration date of 12 months.

 

If you need to cancel a class package with classes left to be taken, you can cancel it without any problems.

 

I will refund you the proportional amount of money from the remaining classes.

What happens if there are technical problems?

In case of an Internet connection problem by any of us during a class, if some minutes are missed, they can be recovered at the end provided that our schedule allows it and if not, in another class.

 

Who does not fail the connection at the least opportune moment? Let’s be empathic!

 

If the problems remain and do not allow us to give the class, we will look for another day to recover it.

Can I get a Spanish Language Certificate?

No, you cannot because I am not an Official Spanish School but I am a full-time Online Spanish Tutor trained by El Instituto Cervantes who offers you more value in skill form than just a piece of paper on the wall.

When you say “daily workout system”, how much time am I supposed to devote to the weekly project daily?

Ideally, if you want to build the habit and get results in the medium term, you need to devote 15 minutes a day to the project (approximately).

 

In the case of you having more time, just tell me and I will prepare activities that fit your available time.

What if I've tried to learn before and gotten so-so results?

I would tell you that every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success.

 

This method collects all my failures and successes learning English so I know that it works but neither all people are equal nor we learn in the same way.

 

In these cases, I always say “Trust your gut“.

Human beings are addicted to excuses to justify our inactivity

You can tell yourself the excuse you want but deep down you know that if you don’t start and persevere, you will achieve nothing in life.

 

There are several reasons why you may think that you need to do this later:

EXCUSE 1: I’m busy now and later would be better …

Unless you’re going through a really messy situation in your life (you know what I mean) there’s never going to be a better time to take these lessons. I will tell you why. Most people think that somehow there will be more time in the future. Think about it.

 

Do you have more time today, than say even a year or two ago?

EXCUSE 1: I’m busy now
EXCUSE 2: The “Difficulty” Factor
EXCUSE 2: The “Difficulty” Factor.

In terms of difficulty, you have three levels. Anything in life can be described in 3 ways:

 

  • Cat Level: Little or no maintenance.
  • Dog Level: A bit of maintenance.
  • Baby Level: A lot of maintenance.

 

Let’s be frank here, mastering a language needs work. But it wouldn’t be as exhausting as having a baby but neither like having a cat. Let’s say you would be in between having a dog and having a baby.

 

Think about all those courses in which they promise you the earth as if you learned Spanish by magic.

 

Keep in mind that nothing really cool is easy to achieve.

EXCUSE 3: I just think I’m not good at it, that’s all.

Most people (I include myself) were told by their parents or teachers at some point in their childhood that some people are more talented than others to do certain things.

 

These classes are proof that talent (if it does exist) doesn’t matter at all. What matters is daily practice, making tons of mistakes (and fixing them), and having fun along the way.

 

If you’re ready to leave ALL limiting beliefs behind you then yes, you’ll get there!

EXCUSE 3: I just think I’m not good at Spanish
If you are prone to making excuses, these classes aren’t for you.
If you are not serious about getting outstandingly good, then don’t bother.
These Spanish lessons are not about more information with no context, they’re about getting skill at Spanish while you enjoy and dive into your favourite topics.

You learn in tiny little bits and you master those bits. It’s like learning notes of music. You master each “note”, then you move ahead steadily. And in time, you’re able to play awesome “music”.

[BONUS] Cinema Workshops to discuss movies with me and other students

Just for being a recurrent student enjoy FIVE Cinema Workshops a year (February | April | June | September | November) where you have the opportunity to share your opinion on the movie and much more stuff that I detail as following:

The first week of each month I upload a folder to Google DRIVE with; a movie file and a pdf file as a guidance for you before and after watching the movie called as ''The Script‘’.

Improve your listening skills and take a fantastic learning with explanations of vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation based on the movie.

Watch the movie at your own pace and work on ''The Script‘’ during the first three weeks.

In addition, in that period you can express your interest in attending the workshop by sending me an email or simply informing me during one of our private classes.

There are one or two sessions (depending on the number of students enrolled) on Thursday last week of the month (60 min duration) with just 5 students per session maximum. In case there are two sessions, I try to make the groups according to student availability and level.

This workshop is carried out through Skype.

Conquer Spanish language through movies. Forget subtitles and just enjoy the movie with our cinema workshop
Collaborative learning is way superior to solo-learning. If you want to go fast, you go alone. If you want to go far, you go in a group.
Test your Spanish in the podcast
Dare you to “Learn by doing” and take part in our Desde Las Profundidades Podcast

Once a month, two students have the possibility to be involved in the making of our podcast. You take part in an interview where we discuss a topic from the Blog. Choose a topic which you have passion for.

At the end there will be a quiz show to practice what you’ve learned.
