About me

I believe that learning new languages is a direct way of understanding new cultures, and becoming a more complete person. 

A native Spanish speaker, I was born in Colombia and raised bilingual. When I was 10 I moved to Spain and learnt Catalan and French at school. 

Languages have always been my passion and one of my strong points, I am currently learning Italian at University, so I am very familiar with the difficulties of starting and keeping up a foreign language.

Moreover, I will tailor my lesson to the student's needs, GCSEs and A Levels have 4 core parts, and each of us has different strong points and weaknesses when it comes to language.

I will ways try to keep a relaxed learning environment where the student feels comfortable learning and making mistakes.

Maria, is an excellent tutor. She is patient when you don't understand as well as providing you with a range of different explanations to help you. Also when practising for exams, she suggests very useful tips.
