During the first session, we discuss objectives and personal areas of strength and weakness. I also have a wide range of supplementary material from which I encourage students to engage with depending on personal interests. For example; Spanish films, magazine articles, music and other popular culture media.
I am a Spanish and Politics graduate from Newcastle University. I come from a bilingual household so have grown up speaking Spanish allowing me to reach native proficiency in both Spanish and English.
From 2018 to 2019, I worked in South America teaching English at a University in the North of Chile as part of my intercalating year at university, working for the British Council.
I have tutored Spanish for just over 4 years and I am very familiar with the AQA course however would also be able to help with any other syllabuses.
I am happy to give classes in Stamford town centre in a coffee shop, free of travel charge, or come to any home in Stamford free of travel charge. I operate on a 24 hour cancellation policy, although I am happy to rearrange free of charge or swap the class for an online class free of charge.
