Personal Description:

I have been teaching Spanish Language and Literature at the University of Oxford since 2012. I hold a PhD in 19th century Spanish Literature, a Master's degree in Journalism and a Certificate of Spanish as a Foreign Language (Cervantes Institute). I have taught hundreds of students throughout my teaching career.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught one-on-one Spanish and Sociolinguistics tutorials to University of Oxford finalists. I also lectured the 19th century Spanish Literature Course at the University of Oxford (from 2012 to 2015). I taught at the University of A Coruña (Spain) from 2009 to 2011 and at a catholic Secondary School in 2008.

Tutoring Approach:

In tutoring, what is essential is the one-to-one relationship between the student and the tutor. With only one person to focus on, I can try a variety of teaching techniques in order to work out the most effective way of helping the student understand a topic.

I aim to provide a solid grounding in the subject while paying close attention to the needs of the individual.

An initial meeting establishes the student’s needs and the direction tuition should take. Then we begin work on a programme of study which focuses on filling gaps in knowledge and addressing any areas of weakness.

I set regular homework and writing assignments – the quantity varying with how much time the student has – and give feedback the following session.
