I am a fully qualified, graduate teacher of Spanish and am a highly proficient linguist. I have a passion for Spanish and I very much enjoy having the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and enthusiasm to my students. I am friendly, patient and caring.
I have 16 years of teaching experience. I have taught at secondary level for 3 years and at middle school level for over 4 years. At both of these educational levels, I taught mainly at beginner and intermediate standard. I taught in Adult Education for 4 years where I gained further experience of teaching at beginner and intermediate standard. Over the last 5 years I have given private tuition, teaching at beginner, intermediate, GCSE and A level standard. During the academic year 2017/2018, I was a voluntary language mentor at Notre Dame High School where I tutored students preparing for GCSE and A level orals.
I have an Enhanced Certificate from the DBS.
I am very adaptable to the needs,abilities and learning styles of individual students and have successfully taught both highly gifted, aspirational students and students who struggle with language learning. I make good use of a wide variety of teaching techniques and resources to make my lessons varied, stimulating and enjoyable.
