My teaching and coaching courses are specialised.
I offer Bespoke tuition, tailored to suit your needs and personal goals.
The 'Free first lesson' will enable us to get to know one another, establish your level & most importantly, we will discuss and clarify what you want out of a lesson. This helps me to prepare a focussed teaching plan and course, so that your valuable time is not wasted.
All levels (beginners to advanced) in both subjects, although my 'forte' is teaching, helping and coaching students aiming for higher education, (exam preparation / specific skills, listening, reading oral etc.,) and professionals, that is Business English/Spanish.
As a Modern Languages Graduate (with 4 other languages), I understand the fears and anxieties of a language student and how frustrating and hard it can be. My experience helps me to focus my teaching according to your personal abilities and needs, whether you want to improve certain skills, or simply just want to improve and boost your confidence, command and understanding of the English, or Spanish, language.
I have lived all my adult life in Spain, (with 1 year exception, teaching in London) where I have taught ever since graduating. I have a great love of all things Spanish, the language, people, culture and way of life.
TECHNIQUE :- Being Bilingual allowed me to adapt the TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) technique I learned at 'International House' to be able to teach Spanish in the same way, a big difference to the 'traditional' teaching methods of the Spanish language (especially in Spain).
Deborah Elizabeth is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
I have taught multi-lingual classes in the UK (Wimbledon school of English, London) and at Academies and Schools across Spain ( at the International School of Tourism, Canaries, at an Audio-studio learning centre, The English Centre, the Language Institute in the Balearics,)
Taught and coached other non-native teachers of English in their University courses / preparation and teaching methods.
Previous students include professionals such as Lawyers (contractual / business English/Spanish), Doctors / Specialists (cardiologists, physiotherapists), Businessmen and women, (bank managers, executives, who I have helped with presentations/ business plans) a group of Air Traffic Controllers, a Casino & Hotel manager, a footballer's agent, and a famous singer / song-writer!
I am so happy to still be in contact with the majority of my students, and have taught students who have later gone on to become teachers of English too! Something which brings me great satisfaction.
My aim and passion, apart from coaching and helping students to learn as much as possible, is to make my lessons interesting, fun and enjoyable; It is also very important for me to see that my students feel at ease.
Grading down the language, to be able to communicate easily and with great clarity, is an important skill in this job, which I have worked on extremely hard, and have mastered over the years.
I have had my own Academy in Spain, employing 4 teachers, however I now also work as an artist, painting and exhibiting my works world wide. For this reason, I turned to private tuition, one to one and small groups, teaching from home or at my students' homes for the last 5 years.

Perfect! I think she is a great teacher.
I am very satisfied with her teaching.
I am very happy with her teaching because she is very polite, kind and she teaches me very clearly. Her teaching has exceeded my expectations. I would like to thank her for being a wonderful and professional teacher!
It was a real pleasure to meet Mutsumi online. I am really looking forward to helping her with her English, concentrating on different skills with focus on a specific purpose. I am sure she will do well as she is extremely motivated and eager to improve her English.
Perfect! Deborah is an amazing tutor and I couldn't recommend her enough! She has helped me improve my Spanish and I'm much more confident in speaking it. With online lessons, she provides lots of practice and worksheets, and homework too. She teaches the Spanish then gives you tests. She's easy to understand, goes at a great pace, ensures punctuation is correct, and is brilliant. The online classes are relaxed and friendly, and I wish I'd started lessons with her a long time ago.
Sophia is a lovely, bright and extremely motivated young lady. It was a great pleasure to teach and coach her with her Spanish. She's made great progress and I have no doubt she will continue to improve enormously as she is very focussed and organised!
Perfect! Deborah is a fantastic English teacher who has helped my 10 year old to improve her writing skills quickly and effectively. I was very impressed by Deborah's ability to evaluate my daughter's English level, and create bespoke teaching materials that challenge and interest her at once. I would recommend Deborah to anyone seeking a private tutor for their child.
Nerea is a lovely young girl, mature & competent, and always well mannered for such a young age. She shows real interest and is making good progress in perfecting her writing/spelling & reading skills. Keep up the good work Nerea!
This is a really easy recommendation for me. Lizzy is a great teacher, everything is structured well and delivered exactly as required for the stage of learning and for me learnt at the right pace. I can highly recommend Lizzy to anyone.
Doy clases desde hace dos meses con Deborah. Es una excelente profesora, hace muy amenas las clases y consigue tener tu atención todo el tiempo.
Ella preparo a mi hijo para sus examnes de Cambridge y sus resultados fueron espectaculares.
I have been taking lessons with Deborah for two months now. She is an excellent teacher, she makes the classes very enjoyable and keeps your attention all the time.
She prepared my son for his Cambridge exams and his results were very good.
I have always tried different courses (whether online or in classes) and textbooks, but always ended up getting stuck at one point.
With Deborah I am now finally able to communicate in Spanish and have fun learning again. She is super flexible with the online classes and so I can fit this into my busy working day.
Ein weiteres Plus, ich verbessere auch mein englisch mit ihr :-) Meine Muttersprache ist deutsch und somit lerne ich gleich zwei Sprachen mit ihr.
Deborah has been my tutor for nearly a year. She works with me on the areas that I am struggling with & makes sure that I have a good foundation of knowledge to give me the confidence to put my learning into practice. I enjoy the classes & Deborah keeps me on my toes with patience & kindness. I highly recommend her.
From the first lesson I knew that Deborah was the right tutor for me. I always looked forward to our lessons. Deborah planned and paced my lessons in such a way that I felt I was progressing every lesson. She would create activity sheets specific to my needs and level, set me appropriate homework and give me encouragement. I really appreciated Deborah’s thoroughness, her attention to my pronunciation, accents on my written work and her explanations to any questions. The only reason I stopped my lessons (for now) is because I am about to have a baby, but will return to Deborah as soon the time is right. I highly recommended Deborah.
Deborah is phenomenal.
She quickly assessed my level and prepared lessons that were appropriate for my aptitude and time available.
She has proven methodology she employs and it works. We have a lot of fun in the classes - the kind of fun you can only have when there is an understanding of what is being taught. She is also very flexible, when I have needed vocabulary or have been turning something over she allows me the freedom to explore it and then corrects the bumpy bits.
I previously had courses than ran for 4 hours a week over 10 weeks and thought I had captured some of the basics but I mislearned a lot of things that now make sense.
I have no hesitation in recommending Deborah Elizabeth as a tutor to anyone who is committed to learning Spanish.
Para los que quieran avanzar en su inglés, Deborah es una gran profesional, sería y te motiva para que sigas prosperando a pesar de los errores. Además tener clases online permite que no pierdas tiempo en desplazamientos. Muy recomendable
Deborah is a very knowledgeable and experienced teacher. I am fluent in English and my questions are not always so straight forward, but she always goes the extra mile to resolve my doubts. My lessons are totally tailored to my needs and I enjoy our conversations about the topics that I am most interested in which helps me learn lots of new vocabulary and expressions. Deborah is a great tutor and I can not recommend her highly enough.
Deborah offers helpful advice, easy-to-apply diagrams and slides for a better facility of learning. I'm looking forward to a better integration of Spanish language in my every day life.
I cannot recommend Deborah highly enough. She taught me Spanish when I worked in Ibiza. Her command of the Spanish language and her tutoring style made learning and speaking a new language an absolute pleasure. A natural teacher.
Having studied 5 languages (3 at University) I understand the needs and frustrations involved in mastering a language. I specialised in the...
