This is how 3 referees rated Rob:
Following a successful twelve year career in professional services in London, I changed direction and became a qualified secondary teacher in Spanish (and French) and now teach Spanish at all levels, including A Level and IB.
I was born in Spain, and grew up in various parts of the country having been educated there until the age of 10 when I went to boarding school in the UK, so my passion spreads far beyond the language elements to include all manner of social and cultural interests. My Spanish accent is central Castilian (not Andalucian).
I am a keen sportsman (particularly rugby) and enjoy the casual distractions in life such as eating out, a fine glass of wine and catching up with old friends and new.

I am adept at gaging the strengths and weaknesses of students and applying the necessary tools to develop and support a range of capabilities. I have a proven track record of success in the demands for GCSE, AS/A Level and IB.
