Information About Patricia - Manchester teacher - (6 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Patricia:
I am a native Spanish speaker who is keen to introduce others to my language, culture and traditions.
I have a teaching diploma from Cervantes Institute and I have also a degree in Building Architectural Engineering. Such a weird combination, isn't it?
Feel free to contact me with any questions, and I am sure you will enjoy the lessons! :)
I have over 3 years experience teaching Spanish in a language school and one to one specialising in GCSE, A Levels (all major syllabuses) and simple ´holiday Spanish´for all ages.
I also have experience teaching younger children, helping them with their first introduction to Spanish.
I have a variety of programs that can be follow depending on the needs of each student.
My lessons tend to have many extra activities for having fun, as I believe the best way to learn is by enjoying your time, either for children or for adults. I am very creative which helps me explain the lessons in a very simple and easy way even when the subject is complicated.
For GCSE and A level learners, I provide a range of exercises so they can practice all the different skills for the exams.
For students who are going to Spain for summer holidays, the learning is based on topics such as going shopping, going to restaurants, asking for directions etc.
I also offer a program based on vocabulary and grammar to aid conversation for those who want to learn the more formal rules of the language.

In terms of teaching, Patricia made it fun. Not only did she come up with creative ways to teach, she also made sure I was remembering what I learnt as we went.
I found that over the 6 months with Patricia I learnt basics in Spanish very well, as I started from no knowledge of the Spanish Language whatsoever! I can now overhear conversations and know roughly what is being said, as well as speak myself to a certain extent. I am moving away so I cannot continue with Patricia weekly, but I highly recommend her as a tutor for anyone of any age.
I looked forward to my lessons every week with Patricia and I'm really going to miss the progress I made in Spanish. If you want someone who is well spoken in english and of course a great teacher, you should definitely learn with Patricia. Couldn't recommend her more! Always enjoyed the lessons so much and to be honest, I really did learn more Spanish than I ever imagined I could in the time we had.
Thank you Patricia!
I'm glad to see that you have learnt loads of Spanish even starting as a total beginner.
It's good to know you've enjoyed my way of teaching, I always make sure to please students.
I hope all my teachings can help you now to both talk to Spanish speakers and to understand them.
Mucha suerte, good luck in your new house and I wish you all the best!
It is good to see you improve your Spanish, hope we can keep on learning and practicing more.
we are enjoying our lessons, we are slow to learn and need patience which you have and an excellent sense of humour which also works for us. We thank you for your support and hope with you tutoring us we will continue to learn and develop the language as it is so important to us that we do.
It is hard as we lead busy lives but we will get there and though we wont be the fastest it will come together.
You are excellent in your support and coaching which we appreciate.
Muchas gracias Patriciia
Muchas gracias! Many thanks for your nice and honest feedback. You and your family are doing great, learning a new language for the first time it's not very easy, specially the pronunciation, however, you all are making a fantastic improvement. We need to keep on practicing more and to get ready for our next lesson… Vamos de tapas! (Going for tapas).
It's a pleasure to have students who are excited, high motivated and interested in learning the language and also dedicated and hard working like you all, that makes things easier when teaching.
