My main goal is for our classes to be engaging, productive, and useful to you in achieving your goals. A central factor in accomplishing this is that we take the time to discuss these goals together during our initial session, after which I will tailor the lessons to your specific needs. You might be completely new to the language and need a solid base to start from, or you might already be an advanced speaker who's looking to reach fluency. Whatever it is, it will determine how we structure and run the class, to ensure that we cover content you are actually interested in.
In addition, I provide my students with ongoing support outside of lesson times, from putting together succinct grammar and vocab learning resources and reference sheets, to reading and offering in-depth feedback on any writing you produce.
Hello! I'm Matilde :)
I am a bilingual Spanish speaker currently living in the UK, where I study Comparative Literature at UCL. I am fluent in Spanish, English, and Portuguese, and would be able to easily transition between these languages during lessons to provide any explanations as needed.
I have extensive experience in teaching Spanish to students of all proficiency levels, from absolute beginners to very advanced speakers. Depending on each student's abilities and individual focus, some of the key areas I may help with include pronunciation and accent reduction, oral and written expression, grammar, and vocabulary building. I also frequently prepare my students to take university entrance exams such as the GCSEs or A-levels, as well as official language proficiency exams such as the DELE, the official Spanish level test.
Time-wise I'm really flexible and can fit classes at whatever time is most convenient. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

Matilde is a really amazing, dedicated tutor. Her explanations are always clear and thorough, she is always available to answer any questions outside out of lessons and to send material and learning resources. My Portuguese and Spanish have both massively improved since starting to take lessons with Matilde, especially as she herself has learnt several languages and is familiar with techniques and structures that are especially useful in learning each one. Sessions are engaging and productive, I always feel like I've progressed at the end of each one and really enjoy that Matilde will advise me on how to keep practicing independently outside of lessons to interiorize the new knowledge!
Matilde is a really great tutor. She takes the time to plan the lessons throughly beforehand and makes sure that they target your needs as a student. She has offered continuous support outside of lessons, which has included answering questions all throughout the week, correcting homework, compiling vocabulary lists and grammar explanations, finding exercises to put new content into practice, etc. Matilde is also extremely flexible and always willing to reschedule lessons (many times at the last minute) if something comes up, without any extra charge or fuss. I look forward to continuing to improve my Spanish with her help!
