I am a self employed professional, with more than 30 years' work experience in both private and public sectors.
I started learning Spanish at secondary school and during the last 30 years have continued to build on my level of language expertise through studys with the Institute of Linguists, university and Madrid Chamber of Commerce.
In addition to my First Class BA Hons degree in Spanish, I have more than two years' experience of the practical application of the Spanish language in Argentina, working for a public sector organisation as a consultant.
I have an excellent understanding of the GCSE and A’level Spanish curriculum with all examination boards., and working with students, have achieved some huge successes in building language understanding and most importantly, confidence, critical to achieving good grades.
Having studied and gained language qualifications with a range of awarding organisations, I understand the various approaches to language learning.
I fully appreciate the different methods of teaching required and how they need to be tailored to the individual's learning style. I am able to adapt the tuition to the preferred learning styles in order to facilitate language learning and to successfully meet the objectives of the student. Regular reviews with the student (and parents) to discuss and agree the tutoring approach and progress being made are key to successful learning.
