Spanish and English (Foreign Language) Teacher in Rochester

As a native Spanish speaker (originally from La Rioja in the north of Spain) my experience of teaching has spanned over a 20-year period. I taught in the USA before moving to the UK.
I work in the Medway area and in SE London, but not across the Dartford tunnel.

Tutoring Experience

I am originally from Spain and have been teaching Spanish and ESOL in London since 2002. I have worked, and still do, in Primary and Secondary schools in the South East area, along with Adult Education in colleges and Corporate training, with a great rate of student retention and satisfaction. Before I came to London I taught in Boston, USA, for 5 years.

I have also independently run lunch and after-school Spanish clubs and I am CRB checked.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to teaching is a direct and interactive one so that all students´ needs are addressed and they can speak in the target language during the activities.
I have a 100% pass rate in GCSE exams.
