I don't follow a book, but prepare all the materials to be individually and perfectly tailored to the student's needs. Before the first lesson, I will be in touch with the students 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.
Dit is de perfecte leraar! Een profiel van goede kwaliteit, een excellent diploma, antwoordt binnen een dag. Cristina plant de eerste les met zorg.

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!
Perfect! Cristina is a great teacher! She is besides very professional, also very friendly, patient and funny ! I’ve learned so much about the english language in such a short time (pronunciation, grammar and vocubalary). I’m very pleased I’ve met such a warm and friendly person. I would recommend her to everyone who’s looking for a English teacher.
Bram is a great student, always in a good mood, ready to learn. Really pleasant, I'm very lucky to have met him!
Perfect! Cristina gave me great lessons. She gave me the confidence to pass the Toefl exam which I passed.
Really hard-working, motivated and focused. Well done for passing your examination, you'll be a great teacher! Your hard work has paid off!
Perfect! Wow! Cristina, thank you for the tricks for learning. Cristina is very patient, friendly and you learn very quickly with her. I can't believe how much I learned in 2 lessons, and how much I will learn in the next lessons.
If you have to choose a teacher, definitely go for her!
Perfect! I am currently taking lessons with Christina. She is awesome! She is not only a good, funny and passioned teacher, but also a highly educated person with vast knowledge of many other languages and cultures. She can combine the reality with the knowledge that lies in the papers (because she does not use books)! By not using books you have the opportunity to search for the information and try to link it with something else that you have already learnt. In my country this is the highest way of studying and for that I am really grateful that she is my teacher!
What can I say about her? she is super witty, funny and intelligent. She will get very far! As far as she wants.
Perfect! I'm really happy with my lessons! Apart from learning lots, Cristina will have something funny to say and we always share a laugh. She has adapted to my busy life to fit in the lessons, which I really appreciate. Really pleased with everything. I highly recommend!
Super lovely student. He's very good fun and easy to teach!
Excellent! Cristina is a very nice teacher. The first class I told her I want to improve my conversation skills and enlarge my vocabulary. She always encourages me to talk, now I am more confident in expressing myself and I can talk more fluently. She is also patient in correcting my mistakes. She is a very warm teacher.
Aya is a great student, always curious and eager to learn more. She comes every day full of energy and ready to absorb more. She's very motivated and understands things very quickly.
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 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!
I met Cristina while I was at the university and she really passionate about teaching. She had plenty of students and all of them were really satisfied with her. I also had classes with her for a while and I strongly recommend her.
