Personal Description:

Hello! I'm James. I am a Modern Languages post-graduate now living in London. I love to travel in order to further my understanding of new cultures and foreign languages. I have lived and worked in Argentina, Central America, Spain and France and this, as well as my language qualifications, has provided me with the linguistic competence and grammatical knowledge required to master a language and speak confidently and with fluency.

I am very sociable, easy to talk to and patient with language learners of all ages.

Tutoring Experience:

I have more than six years of experience teaching English and Spanish as foreign languages in schools and online, both to groups and to individuals in one-on-one format. I have taught English to primary and secondary school students at IES Marcos Zaragoza school in Spain, and Spanish from beginners to university level.

During my time at university, I spent my second and final years teaching GCSE and A Level Spanish to students in the Surrey and Berkshire area, improving their writing, speaking and comprehension skills. I now teach French up to GCSE level too.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that language learning should be fun, which is why I opt for an interactive stance, basing classes around topical issues, texts and journalistic material. I do not adopt entirely traditional methods of teaching grammar if students find it laborious, so I use fun and interesting content to explain tenses and conjugations in a digestible, accessible way. I have an excellent knowledge of the Spanish language and an extensive vocabulary in informal and business Spanish.

I have a First Class Honours Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Spanish and a Master of Arts (MA) in International Relations and Communication. I am incredibly passionate about languages and language learning, and I try to project that passion onto others. I love to teach anybody with a desire to learn, whether it's to improve writing, comprehension or to practice speaking.
