Information About María - Newmarket tutor - (3 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated María:
My name is María and I am a qualified teacher (I hold QTS in England). I graduated in Classics from the University of Málaga, Spain, and then I gained a Master's Degree in Secondary and Further Education from the National Distance University of Spain. I arrived in England in 2012 and I graduated in Spanish Language Teaching to Adults from Instituto Cervantes and University of Roehampton, London. Since then, I have had the opportunity to develop my professional career as a Spanish and Classics teacher, teaching the subjects I love the most: Spanish, Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Civilization in two very well-known schools in Cambridge. Regarding Spanish, not only have I taught the language to school children aged 4 to 16, but also to students preparing for Spanish to A level and adults.
