Waltham Forest Tutor

I'm a highly experienced, enthusiastic and qualified Spanish teacher. For the past five years, I have been designing and delivering lessons for a range of learners, from beginners to advanced, specialising in Spanish for business, DELE, undoing fossilized mistakes in competent speakers, tuning correction, speech delivering and Hispanic authors. I've given private tuition to a huge variety of students – ages have ranged from 7 to 81, and backgrounds from actresses to racing drivers. I've taught doctoral students, homeschooled children, surgeons, businessmen, athletes, holidaymakers and journalists. I offer private lessons only to adult learners on weekdays from 10am to 5pm at my house or in public places nearby.

Tutoring Approach

My love for language and culture, along with my interest in human behaviour, help me to be a conscientious and empathetic instructor, with many strategies to engage and motivate students, to promote their critical thinking and to really get them using the language. I strive for excellence, knowing that every student is different, and I prefer to offer bespoke lessons according to their tastes and learning style. That's the way to get the best results.
