About me

Hi! My name is Sian and I graduated a year ago from the University of Oxford where I achieved a first class degree in Spanish and Linguistics. I can teach Spanish, Linguistics, English as a foreign language, and can also offer advice on university admissions!

Hi! My name is Sian and I graduated a year ago from the University of Oxford where I achieved a first class degree in Spanish and Linguistics. I can teach Spanish, Linguistics, English as a foreign language, and can also offer advice on university admissions! I have loved learning Spanish ever since I began studying it in year 6 and continue to love learning more and more each day. My passion for Spanish soon turned into a love for learning about the nature of language too, which is why I really enjoyed studying English Language for GCSE and A-Level before studying Linguistics at university. I am very friendly and outgoing person and am used to teaching on a 1:1 basis (so there will be no awkward silences!) and a fun fact about me is that I also coach the Argentine Women's Cricket Team! This really helped me develop my communication skills, and furthered my understanding of Spanish. It is also one of the reasons why I love my field of study- it can take you to amazing places and allow you to do amazing things!

About my sessions

In terms of my teaching style, I can promise that lessons with me will not be boring! I am a firm believer that in order to learn and for things to stick in your head (which is very important with languages!) learning through fun activities is the best way to do so. This is not to say however that I do not take my lessons seriously- you can expect me to have planned our lessons thoroughly, and we will regularly communicate about the progress that you're making and the learning objectives...

In terms of my teaching style, I can promise that lessons with me will not be boring! I am a firm believer that in order to learn and for things to stick in your head (which is very important with languages!) learning through fun activities is the best way to do so. This is not to say however that I do not take my lessons seriously- you can expect me to have planned our lessons thoroughly, and we will regularly communicate about the progress that you're making and the learning objectives that we are trying to achieve. You can also expect a lot of communication within our sessions- I will be asking lots of questions to help you learn, and also to test if you've remembered what we have been talking about! Most importantly, you will be challenged and pushed to achieve your potential yet in a fun and engaging environment.
