Hi! I am a friendly, patient and considerate graduate who enjoys sharing their love for everything Spanish. I have studied Spanish at a high to fluent level for around 7 years now and thoroughly enjoy helping others who are trying to learn this fantastic language; including learning about the culture and traditions along the way!
I have always had a keen interest for teaching and tutoring. As part of my degree, I opted to become an English Language Assistant in a Spanish secondary school (IES Thos i Codina in Mataró, Barcelona) for 9 months. It was an enriching experience which helped me develop different approaches for how to teach languages effectively to a wide variety of learners.
During my 2nd and 4th year of university, I also volunteered to be a mentor in the Peer Assisted Learning scheme. This involved one-on-one sessions which were tailored to the needs of the individual; I loved being able to help people on what they struggled with personally and seeing week after week how they made progress.
I have always proritised the individual and their needs; it is essential to tackle what the student wants to work on, as long as it fits into the grand scheme of what they wish to achieve through our sessions.
For school and college learners, I will tailor the sessions to what is included in their syllabus to best prepare them for their assessments. The sessions will always be enjoyable! There are ways to make even grammar bearable, and I'll aways ensure that students leave sessions feeling confident in their abilities, whatever level they may be.
