Information About Miguel - Highbury teacher - (16 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Miguel:
I was born and raised in Barcelona by a Spanish father and a French mother. I developed a strong interest in languages from a very young age as I learnt three languages as a child; Spanish, French, and Catalan at school. My mother who is a French teacher inspired me with her passion for teaching to further my studies to become a language teacher.
I am a patient and encouraging teacher.
I obtained a Certificate of Teaching Languages to Adults at Goldsmiths University in London and completed a teaching placement at the Instituto Cervantes in London.
I combine language teaching with my other passion, music. I regularly perform at events with a Swing and Latin Jazz band called Camino Sonoro.
I began tutoring for the First Tutors Agency in 2013 and enhanced my knowledge of the Spanish and French GCSE and A-levels exam board requirements and methodology.
I have been tutoring full time since 2016 and have taught a number of Spanish and French GCSE and
A-level students who have subsequently successfully achieved top grades in their language exams.
I am currently preparing several students for AQA, Edexcel, IGCSE Cambridge boards and teach Spanish A-level lessons at Southover Partnership, a leading special needs school in London.
Spanish/French GCSE and A-level: My lessons involve analysing the exam topics and reinforcing all the essential aspects of the language; Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. I use up-to-date language resources to meet the different exam board requirements and language objectives.
Spanish/French adult learning: My lessons are tailored to suit individual student’s needs. My objective is to help my students to achieve their personal goals for learning a language.
I will help you to develop your conversational skills and reinforce the grammar and vocabulary to converse in any setting. I offer general Spanish lessons and business lessons.
I also offer online lessons via Skype. These one-to-one video lessons are
dynamic and highly beneficial for students who need flexibility within their schedule and/ or who live outside my one-to-one teaching area.

Update: Miguel didn't disappoint - with his teaching and support, my daughter managed to get an A, a jump of 3 grades from her mocks' results (as well as exceeding her school teacher's most optimistic expectation). I would not hesitate to recommend Miguel to others who are looking for one to one support for their teens learning the language.
I enjoyed the lesson right from the beginning.
Merci Beaucoup Miguel!
I highly recommend him.
He arrives promptly to our home for tuition .
I would recommend to anyone who is interested in learning the guitar.
