Alicia - Owlsmoor - Spanish

Methodology

I am a native speaker - fully qualified Spanish teacher ( PGCE-University of Warwick), with seventeen years of UK teaching experience. My approach to teaching is student-centred.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Spanish. Being a GCSE - A level Examiner gives me an insight into the new specifications and helps me to teach exactly what is needed for my students to achieve higher grades.

My expertise goes from teaching Spanish from beginner level through to university level. I have taught at secondary schools at FE colleges and universities.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

My Bachelors and Masters degrees are in law. I then attained a Postgraduate Certificate of Education in Modern Foreign Languages from the University of Warwick in 2002.

- How much do you charge?

I am able to charge a lower hourly fee per student if you find a group of friends to learn together. I do not charge for travel.
I have also experience in teaching Spanish for business to adults (any level).

- Where do you teach?

I am able to teach at my home or your home. I can travel to Bracknell, Crowthorne, Sandhurst, Yateley, Camberley, Wokingham, Woking, Windlesham, Sunningdale.

If you aren't sure whether I can travel to you, message me!

- When are you available?

During the Summer I am available from Mondays to Thursdays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach from KS4 university level as well as adult learners including Spanish for Business.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare students for common entrance, GCSE, A-level, IB, Advanced Placement, Pre-U and university level exams.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am able to tutor online via Skype. During the this academic year I taught about 9 hours online to students in Oxford, Norwich, Kent, Sheffield.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a friendly, caring teacher and I will work with you to help you achieve your goals. Whether you are struggling with Spanish or need an extra boost to help you get the very top grades, I will enjoy working with you to help you do your very best. I love teaching and am passionate about Spanish, so I hope I can help you enjoy your learning!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

For seventeen years I have taught in a wide range of schools, independent and state, as well as at higher education level, including at Warwick University. I have been Head of Spanish and have an excellent knowledge of a range of exam boards as well as the new specifications. Incidentally, I have just been marking exams.

My teaching is student-centred, aimed to meet the needs of each individual learner, and uses techniques that work and achieve results. I vary my activities in order to suit a variety of learning needs and styles.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I undertook my PGCE at Warwick University.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

(1) The Lima Law Bar Association

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have had a wonderful year of private teaching . My students were from different walks of life. I have taught A level, IB, GCSE, IGCSE, and have throughly enjoyed every minute of it.
