About me

Hi everyone!


I'm Gaby and I am a Modern Languages graduate from the University of Sheffield. 


I began speaking Spanish at the age of 8. My parents had a lovely house in the south of Spain and I used to spend around 2 months there every year. I now have lots of friends not only from that area but also from Peru, where I spent half of my Year Abroad living and teaching. I also worked as a private tutor during my time in Lima, where I taught students of all ages and levels. This experience has made me an enthusiastic, patient and supportive tutor and I feel confident in being able to help you overcome whatever aspects of the language you may be struggling with.


What's really helped me personally over the years to reach the level that I'm at today is using a variety of creative methods to boost my learning. This includes creating flashcards to help me memorise vocabulary, recording and listening back to voice notes and getting together with other learners to discuss difficult aspects of the language and ways to overcome them. 


I would love to come up with different ways to help you improve your Spanish!

About my sessions

Every student is different and I feel it is important to tailor my sessions to each individual tutee!


For me, the most important thing is that we get to know each other - I believe that this will create a calm and supportive where we will both feel comfortable. 


In order to help you improve effectively, I will ask you in advance which topics or areas of the language you need extra support with, whether it be grammar, vocabulary, your accent etc. This will then give me enough time to come up with fun, creative and interactive learning materials tailored specifically to your learning style. This will help you to improve quickly and efficiently!


Every few sessions, we can do a quick progress check to make sure you’re still on track and to let me know if there’s anything that I can change about my teaching style to help you further.

Questions Gabrielle has answered

How do you say 'the best/worst/funniest/scariest thing is...'

In your Spanish GCSE written and oral exams, you will be asked for your opinion. One of the most popular ways to do this is to say 'the best/worst/funniest/scariest thing is...'There is a specific way to translate these types of sentences (which many people get wrong!)A lot of students translate directly and end up with sentences looking like this:la peor cosa es... the worst thing is...la mejor cosa es... the best thing is...la cosa más graciosa fue... the funniest thing was...These are direct translations from English and do not make sense in Spanish! When these words are used as nouns, 'lo' is used as a definite article as it refers to no particular noun.So, the sentences should be formed as follows:lo peor es... the worst thing is...lo mejor es... the best thing is...lo más gracioso fue... the funniest thing was...
