« I was looking for intensive, fast-moving Spanish classes in order to move into real communication as fast as possible. Not just tourist stuff with hotels and trains, but really to get to grips with and use the language for business and personal communication. This is the place.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Communication, education and writing as well as working face to face with people to engage them and inspire them to discover and develop potentials have always been paramount to my vocation. Teaching is one of my natural talents, as I spontaneously began to explain my classmates Maths for A Level exams. I am now writing a book on archetypal cosmology combining astronomy, philosophy and psychology.

I am a professional tutor with 12,000 hours of experience who aims to motivate students to broaden their curiosity and critical thinking in classes planned to enable them to solve problems, explore, experiment, dialogue, reflect, practice and apply skills creatively for deep learning. The materials are developed according to advances in educational psychology and neuroscience to greatly enhance the learning experience in a blend that allows them to progress at their optimum pace. This approach led me to discover good teaching principles grouped in what is now called “Singapore Maths”, applied in countries where students perform very well in international rankings. I completed courses like “Teaching Maths for Mastery In-Depth”, based on these practices. I also have a Certificate of Language Teaching (CELTA) for English and Spanish.

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

Yes.

It's not easy to find someone who is multitalented and is prepared to teach what they know to others and so well".

Gabriel has his final Spanish GCSE exams this week, so I think it makes sense for the lesson he has this Thursday with you to be his last. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the work you have done with him. It would appear to have made a huge difference to his confidence and performance; his teachers at school have noted his marked improvement. Gabriel has very much enjoyed the lessons with you...
