Corrinna taught Spanish and English to students in workshops in Spain and online. We attended her workshops while in Spain and then online. She always tried to make the lessons interesting and adapted them to suit us and the other students. We would recommend her for students planning on long term studies of English and Spanish.

Our children studied SATS, KS, GCSE and Academic English and Spanish with Corrina for a number of years. One of my sons still studies with her every week. The others entered universities.
She is dependable, patient and we would nominate her as a tutor.
