English 28 year old living in Madrid, fluent in Spanish. I tutor GCSE and A-Level Spanish. My BA was Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies at University of Manchester (2:1 with a distinction in

Methodology

I believe the pupil is the most important person in the classroom, their development is paramount. Whether the goal is to improve on just grammar, pronunciation, or vocabulary, or a combination of all three for a particular exam, I guarantee he/she will learn in a fun, safe and encouraging environment. I’m extremely personable, and I've worked successfully with children of all ages, so I'm able to adapt the teaching style swiftly to suit the pupil’s learning preference. I like to employ audio visual tools as part of the learning journey - in addition to following a textbook, I consider listening and studying topical songs, or watching short films / advertising campaigns helps to demonstrate the use of the language in a day to day situation, and makes it more memorable, not to mention offering a valuable insight into the Hispanic culture. I commit to offering engaging ways to advance my pupil’s understanding of the Spanish language, both to meet exam requirements and to nurture a growing confidence in their ability to converse in Spanish.

Experience

I have a huge passion for Spanish, the language, food and indeed the Hispanic arts. I studied Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies at the University of Manchester, completing in 2012 with a distinction in my final oral exam.
 Prior to university I spent my gap year in Madrid working as an au-pair, teaching English for ten months. I also volunteered at the local nursery in La Moraleja, Madrid to immerse myself in the language. My third year of university I spent at Universidad Miguel de Cervantes, Valladolid, completing the Erasmus programe.

I left in 2011 fluent, and I recently finished a three month course at Instituto Cervantes, London, taking evening classes each Wednesday to get the C1 exam, to prepare me for my move back to Madrid in May 18.
