I'm a friendly graduate who specialises in all aspects of the Spanish language. I love providing sessions that are tailored to what the student wants to learn; it must be fun too, otherwise what's the point! Whether it's general conversation, written and reading comprehension or even the dreaded grammar, I will ensure the lessons are engaging yet rewarding for the student.
I have tutored individuals who were in their first year of university under the Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) scheme for several years. During my year abroad, I was an English Language Assistant; I taught around 20-25 people per class ranging from excitable 11 year olds to adult learners.
My students noticed a distinct improvement in their abilities, and I always tried to make the lessons enjoyable even for the most reluctant of learners!
