I don't follow a book, but prepare all the materials to be individually and perfectly tailored to the student's needs. You are a unique person, so we can’t just follow a book that hasn’t been created for one person, but for many!
Before the first lesson, I will be in touch with the student to make sure I gather all the information needed: level, type of learner, personality to see which sorts of activities can be more engaging and obtain better and faster results.
The vocabulary will be the one used right now, so you don't waste your time learning words none uses anymore. Only relevant, up-to-date lessons to maximize your time and effort.
Come to the lesson full of energy, we’re going to make a great job together!
One of our very best! High-quality profile, excellent qualifications, response guaranteed, highly ranked and appreciated by their students! Cristina will plan your first lesson with care.

Perfect! Mijn naam is Kelly en kom uit Nederland,
Ik was op zoek naar een Engelstalige docent voor mijn dochter. En we zijn uitgekomen bij Cristina.
Ze is een geweldige docent kan ook super om gaan met kinderen ze heeft mijn dochter Engels geleerd. En nu leert ze haar ook nog een Spaans we zijn al 2 jaar aan het leren met haar en het gaat super.
Nu moet ik zelf de Spaanse taal oppakken maar met Cristina gaat dat zeker goed komen. Bedankt voor alles! Van ons een dikke 5+.
Teaching the little princess is so much fun, she is so cute! A bit shy sometimes, but making good progress and having a lot of fun with her! So happy that her mummy contacted me!
Perfect! Cristina is een uitstekende docent, ze levert op basis van je wensen echt maatwerk. Daarnaast is ze heel flexibel en super aardig.
Cristina is an excellent teacher, she offers tailor-made solutions based on your wishes. She is also very flexible and super nice.
5 sterren wat mij betreft.
Eeke is a lovely woman, eager to learn and who absorbs everything really quickly. It is really nice to have met her, and I hope to continue our lessons for a long, productive time! I really hope she feels the same ;-)
Perfect! She can explain things in a very simple way. She is also really friendly and professional. Christina is a good teacher. I highly recommend her!
It was really fun to teach Devit. She is really full of energy and willing to tell you so many things, which is great for the speaking practice! I really miss her! I hope to see you soon again, sweetheart and I do hope you enjoyed the lessons as much as I did!
Perfect! Cristina is a top-class English teacher. She is friendly, patient and has a good sense of humor. We have the lessons via Skype. To my surprise I haven't missed face to face contact at all. That's because she prepares her lessons so well and puts me at ease to have conversations in English. She tailor-makes each lesson, according to my level and interests. Besides, she provides me every week with meaningful feedback and challenging homework. It's a great pleasure to improve my English with the help of Cristina!
Perfect! Cristina is an extremely good Spanish teacher, she helped me a lot. At first I thought it would be harder to learn through webcam classes. But Cristina is so well prepared and professional in her classes which make them just as good as if she would have given them face to face. I would highly recommend her to everyone!
Perfect! She really helped me (and is still helping me) to be more confident about my grammatical skills. Explains the topics really clearly and always has her teaching materials ready days before the actual class. Actually prefered her classes over my teacher's class at my own school. So that should say enough;)
Anouk will give you her 100% attention and commitment to the lessons. She will try her hardest every time, plus she's got a good sense of humour, too! I'm very happy to have been chosen as her teacher. Hopefully we will reach her goal together!
Perfect! I find Cristina an excellent teacher! It doesn't matter what we are talking about, all topics are interesting and exiting. I do appreciate her feedback during our conversation, she lets me know how I can improve my English. I highly recommend her as a teacher!
It is a pleasure to teach Elena. She will be always eager to learn, will ask for lots of homework and always cooperates in class. Time flies in our lessons! I am so lucky to have been contacted by her!
Perfect! Perfect teacher!
I had a few Spanish lessons with Cristina and I wouldn't know where to start my review.
She was really prepared, sending me the lesson via email the day before, and offering to give me some homework after class.
I improved my Spanish a lot with her and I couldn't be any happier.
If you're looking for a real teacher and not high school students, search no further.
Perfect! Cristina is the best teacher I've ever had in my life.
She has been very friendly during the lessons, and I will book other lessons with her very soon.
You can't go wrong with her! I've improved my English so much only with 10 lessons.
Very committed to the lessons, good fun, great student. Really happy to have met him!
Perfect! Cristina is a great teacher.
With her, I got to improve my English very quickly. She is very nice, friendly, and also very patient. Her way of explaining things is easy to remember, which helps a lot. I even sent her my homework via whatsapp and she corrected it in her free time, and really quickly. Thank you very much for your dedication!
Ik geef Christina 5 uit 5 sterren omdat Christina precies aanvoelt waar ik sta in mijn Italiaans en wat ik nodig heb voor de volgende stap in de beheersing van de Italiaanse taal. Ik krijg net zoveel huiswerk als ik tijd heb en Christina is flexibel bij het inplannen van de lessen. Maar het belangrijkste is dat de lessen leuk zijn, ik denk dat ik daarom voor de derde keer weer terugkom voor de voorbereiding op mijn vakantie in Italie 🙂
I've always loved Italy and their language. I took an Italian course with Cristina to be able to communicate with the locals when I travel on my holidays. Really useful and fun! Now I enjoy my holidays even more!
I learn Spanish with Christina. It's always a pleasure. She is flexible, always good prepared and has a good sense of humor. You can ask her whatever you want and she will prepare the lesson in accordance with your needs. It is very important for me as I am a teacher as well and it is quite difficult to please me :)
Cristina is a great teacher ! She's very patient, the explanations are very clear and I've learned a lot.
Cristina heb ik een paar jaar geleden leren kennen, toen ze nog bij Booking.com werkte. Ze heeft voor mij een klacht afgehandeld en was hierin zo hulpvaardig en begripvol, dat we contact hebben gehouden. Ze is bijzonder lief en geduldig, waardoor ze een prima lerares is, wat eigenlijk en passie van haar is. Ze houdt ervan om mensen iets te leren, of dat nu in het Spaans is of met koken, ze vindt het allemaal leuk.
I learn Spanish with Christina. It's a pleasure. She is flexible, always good prepared and has a good sense of humor
I believe Cristina is the best teacher in Utrecht. I have had other lessons with other teachers but their teaching methods didn't exactly adjust to my needs.
I've passed the Cambridge University First certificate, I'm not sure if it would have possible without her help, useful tips and relevant advice.
I really recommend Cristina as a teacher. You can really trust she will try her hardest for you to pass or get a good mark in your exam!
Cristina fue mi profesora de inglés durante un año en España. Además de ser una gran profesional, es una persona muy cercana consiguiendo que el estudiar sea más divertido y que aumente tu interés en aprender. Tengo muy buenos recuerdos de ella!
Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true people will leave footprints in your heart. Cristina is like a stars, You don't always see them, but you know they're always there.
Cristina is amazing! I have to admit I am not the most dedicated student... I am more of the opinion “who wants to do more work after work???” However, Cristina has the magic way to make me focus and learn. She has an incredible way of teaching and great communication skills! She made me to look forward for my lessons after a busy day at work!
If you want to learn Spanish then look no further! Cristina is the best!
