About me

Hola! I am a creative and enthusiastic tutor and would love to help you improve your Spanish, not only because I love any opportunity to speak the language but above all because I know I will really enjoy watching you progress and grow in confidence. I have been learning Spanish for eight years now and have got to a level of fluency where I can really enjoy speaking this rapid and beautiful language, but I also remember the early stages of struggling through verb endings and vocab learning.

Hola! I am a creative and enthusiastic tutor and would love to help you improve your Spanish, not only because I love any opportunity to speak the language but above all because I know I will really enjoy watching you progress and grow in confidence. I have been learning Spanish for eight years now and have got to a level of fluency where I can really enjoy speaking this rapid and beautiful language, but I also remember the early stages of struggling through verb endings and vocab learning. It would be a pleasure to help you through the difficulties of learning the language, whatever your confidence or ability, and I hope that my own enthusiasm will transfer to you!


I also love Hispanic literature, and 'Como Agua Para Chocolate' and Lorca's trilogy are among my favourite works. If you are an A-level student who needs specific tuition on the literature side of the course, I hope that my experience of studying English A-level will give me the skills of perception and precision to help you boost your grade and engage with some truly amazing texts.


I have found language to be the key to understanding and appreciating other cultures, which has in turn given me more depth of perspective about my own culture. This is something I believe to be truly unique about language learning.

About my sessions

Above all, I believe that the best way to learn a language is to be immersed in it and so I will try to speak in Spanish as much as possible. You do not have to understand every word but just being surrounded by the language will boost your comprehension and vocabulary, and I can always clarify in English if you are unsure. I am committed to tailoring my lessons to you, and so will do my best to understand your aims, doubts, and strengths in order to bring out the best in you as a learner. If...

Above all, I believe that the best way to learn a language is to be immersed in it and so I will try to speak in Spanish as much as possible. You do not have to understand every word but just being surrounded by the language will boost your comprehension and vocabulary, and I can always clarify in English if you are unsure. I am committed to tailoring my lessons to you, and so will do my best to understand your aims, doubts, and strengths in order to bring out the best in you as a learner. If something is not working for you I will work hard to find a solution and change my methods.


I am also conscientious and determined, meaning I will prepare for the lessons thoroughly and using a variety of different sources, even if I am very familiar with the material. I will plan every lesson to make sure you understand its objectives at the start and reflect on your own improvements and doubts at the end. I hope you will find my lessons creative and engaging, and that you will have a chance to really think about the material for yourself. My priority is to boost your grade, but I also want to foster critical thinking skills and genuine love of this subject in you.
