About me

Thanks for taking the time to view my profile. I'm Ed, a Modern Languages (Spanish & Portuguese) graduate from Oxford University and tutor currently based in London. I fell in love with languages after a couple of language courses in Spain and Portugal and have not looked back.

Thanks for taking the time to view my profile. I'm Ed, a Modern Languages (Spanish & Portuguese) graduate from Oxford University and tutor currently based in London. I fell in love with languages after a couple of language courses in Spain and Portugal and have not looked back. I recently spent a term studying in Mexico city in 2017 and then worked as a translator in Brazil in 2018. I believe languages are more important than ever in the globalised world, and am passionate about helping everyone with their language skills to help dismantling language barriers. I'm now tutoring professionally whilst studying for a Master's in Law.


I have worked with a range of students and received positive feedback over the past 5 years. I tutored a student who was struggling with her A Level syllabus and she was eventually inspired to study Spanish at University. In 2018, I helped boost a student's GCSE grade up to the top grade boundary, above what she was predicted. I have also worked with students with learning difficulties and students taking their first steps in learning a foreign language.

About my sessions

I work with each student closely, getting to know their goals and challenges. I appreciate that speaking a foreign language can be daunting and is often thought of as something you either can or can't do. I tackle these assumptions by making progress every session and building up grammar, vocabulary and speaking skills. Before you know it, sentences will come together more easily and we'll be able to iron out mistakes.

I work with each student closely, getting to know their goals and challenges. I appreciate that speaking a foreign language can be daunting and is often thought of as something you either can or can't do. I tackle these assumptions by making progress every session and building up grammar, vocabulary and speaking skills. Before you know it, sentences will come together more easily and we'll be able to iron out mistakes.


My technique for tutoring focuses on real-world examples. I tend to practice grammar rules first in a textbook and then a recent news article that employs the rule to teach it by example. This helps remind students that what they're learning isn't dusty grammar, its the beating heart of a language used to communicate by millions across the world. By combining current native-speakers' content with my own worksheets that I have amassed over 5 years of tutoring I make my sessions engaging and rigorous.
