Hola, my name is Daniel Cristiano and I am an Argentinian lawyer based in London working as a Spanish tutor with more than 20 years of teaching experience.
I deliver Online Premium Legal and Business Spanish language training for lawyers, Law firms, Law students, business people and civil servants.
I have taught and designed courses for colleges and private clients including King’s College London, University of Oxford, the UK Foreign Office, London Business School and the European Banking Authority, among other institutions. I also work with various corporate clients including magic circle Law firms, investment banks, real estate, marketing and insurance companies; teaching students of all levels.
My courses differ from those elsewhere as my training both as a lawyer and a Language Tutor for adults uniquely enables me to understand the specific needs that legal, finance and other business professionals have when they deal with documents or business meetings in Spanish. I tailor all my courses to fit individual and company needs.
You will get the highest teaching quality you can find at very reasonable rates. Besides, if you choose one of my scheduled courses, I am commited to never exceed six students per group, which will give you more chances to practice and receive proper and immediate feedback.
SPANISH TUTOR FOR ALL LEVELS-ALL FOUR SKILLS
A language is not an exact science and for this reason it is often assumed to be hard to learn because it does not always follow rules and patterns and further changes throughout time. My job is to ease the learning process and cushion your frustrations through it.
From complete beginners to advance learners, I will guide you through the Spanish Language four skills and I will help you pass any Spanish exam you wish to take.
WHAT I OFFER
I offer four types of courses:
All tailor-made courses start whenever you want and they are focused on your needs. Sessions can be cancelled or rescheduled up to 24 hours before the beginning of the lesson.
Scheduled group courses have a set time and they cannot be rescheduled and or cancelled. They are also focused on your needs and skills but as they are offered to the general public, their range of needs may be wider.
ONE-ON-ONE OR SMALL GROUPS
I tailor my courses to the way you learn best, whether that is in a group up to 6 students or one-on-one.
CORPORATE LEGAL & BUSINESS SPANISH
My Business and Legal Spanish Language Training Courses are designed to deliver effective learning to enable you to have those vital meetings with your Spanish-speaking colleagues as quickly as possible.
Whether you work in Finance, Law, Civil Service, Journalism, or any other specialist sector, I tailor my training courses to include the important terminology and phrases specific to your business.
FLEXIBILITY-CHOOSE WHEN YOU WANT TO LEARN
If you choose a tailor-made course, you can choose to learn at a time that suits your work schedule, whether just in the morning, the afternoon, your lunch break or the evening.
Cancellations of tailor made lessons incurred with less than 24 hours might be charged. However, to avoid you losing a session, I am pretty flexible to reschedule it during the same week subject to my availability. My policy is simple: If I have the availability during the same week, I will accept your new time with no loss from your side, even if the reschedule is within the 24 hours.
In the unlikely case of unforeseen circumstances preventing me to deliver my class, of course, that class is not lost.
I follow a comprehensive method based on the communicative approach and I am highly adaptable to the needs and the different ways you learn.
I design my syllabi following both the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and my student’s needs.
ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED IN ALL MY FEES
I will email you all materials before each lesson on PDF, mp3 and interactive online activities.
Throughout my lessons, I will introduce you to to legal and business Spanish concepts and cross-cultural communication with all sort of materials and resources purposely designed for your specific needs.
Through listenings, readings, written assignments and oral exercises, you will learn a wide array of skills, ranging from document reading and writing strategies to oral presentations of substantive professional issues.
I incorporate activities that focus on listening and speaking skills with the aim of preparing you for real world situations such as attorney-client meeting simulations and conference calls.
HOW IT WORKS
It is simple, If you are a complete beginner, just fill the contact form below, email me by clicking on the mail simbol, or call me to book your course. If you have some level, take my free Spanish level assessment at the top right of this page, if you are using a pc or a laptop, or immediately under this paragraph, if you are using a mobile device; and contact me with your results to book a 10 minutes oral assessment.
If you have chosen a tailor-made course, once we have discussed your needs, assessed your level either over the phone or Zoom, and booked the dates, I will send you a syllabus for the first ten lessons for your approval and comments. After the first lesson, if you think it has met your expectations, you can decide to continue and I will send you the first invoice. Remember, the first lesson of the first block of 10 is free.
If you have chosen one of my scheduled courses, if needed, I will assess your level either over the phone or Zoom whenever suits you. After the first lesson, and if you have decided to continue, I will send you the syllabus for the whole course.
The difference between my prepacked courses and tailor-made group courses are mainly that the latter are designed for companies and you decide the time you learn. Basically, you learn with your friends and colleagues whenever it suits you all.
I am aware of the nature of my students’ work and that all what is discussed during our sessions is always strictly confidential. I am happy to sign a NDA.
I am fully DBS checked.
