I am an enthusiastic, reliable and professional Spanish tutor. I have significant experience of working individually with children, both as a private tutor and in a formal school setting. In addition to GCSE and A Level tuition, I offer beginner lessons to budding linguists of primary and secondary school age. I enjoy sharing my love of language with others and helping students to fulfill their potential.
I have previously worked as an English language teaching assistant in a primary school in southern Spain. This was an immensely enjoyable experience which enabled me to acquire a high degree of fluency in both spoken and written Spanish. I helped the bilingual coordinator to deliver the English language programme. I worked with both large and small groups of pupils and was required to prepare materials for a wide range of ages and abilities.
Additionally, I have recently been employed as a Literacy Support Assistant in a large secondary school. This role has required me to work in a reliable, consistent and trustworthy manner. I have learned how to source appropriate teaching materials and provide tailored support to individual pupils.
I also have experience as a private Spanish tutor working from my own home. I have helped students to prepare for examinations and have also taught primary school beginners. I have a large collection of resources which are specifically designed to match the needs of the pupils.
I believe that patience is the most important characteristic of a tutor. In order to succeed, students must feel able to ask questions about topics they don't understand. I offer my lessons in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere which facilitates learning.
I am to make language learning a rewarding and enjoyable experience for all involved.
I always plan my lessons carefully to make good use of the tutee's time and to ensure that they receive value for money.
