Experienced and thorough Spanish expert for all levels, with a friendly, informal style

Methodology

Most of my tuition for Spanish is one-on-one, with exams as a focus (this is also the goal of an intensive revision school in which I work). Most students are looking to improve their grade in GCSE/IGCSE, A-Level, IB or Pre-U. For university admissions, I prepare students for tests and interviews, focussing on Spanish and Linguistics, but also for a range of other Arts and Humanities subjects.

A typical meeting would depend on our aim - it could be very oral-based for a speaking exam, a brush-up on grammar, a discussion of a literary text or current affairs (for more advanced students), or a mix of all of these.

For exam preparation, we will also use the exam specifications as a reference.

I like to think of my tuition style as informal, but thorough. I'm lucky that the subjects I teach are inherently interesting, and hope to share that interest with students.

Experience

I have been working full-time as a tutor for over 7 years, since graduating with a First in Linguistics & Spanish from the University of Oxford. My specialities are Spanish at all levels, Linguistics, and university entrance (including many Oxbridge admissions tests).

I have worked with over 100 students: some long-term, some for one-day revision programmes. This has been mostly for Spanish and Oxbridge admissions. This is a mix of one-on-one tutoring (in person and online) and small-group sessions at a revision school here in Oxfordshire.

Outside work, I'm a hiker, home cook, and snooker player.

Rhys taught me for a little over a month during the pandemic and my improvement over that time was astounding. He is a very friendly person and knows how to make his students feel enthusiastic about learning Spanish. He is also extremely professional in his preparation and always details his lessons towards what you need to know to be successful.

Rhys was my tutor for the LAT, and I could not recommend him enough! He got to know me and the areas that I wanted to work on in our first free consultation, and afterwards we worked on the basis of me completing preps and past papers before our lessons and then going through them in the lesson time as well as other exercises. For me this was the perfect format, as Rhys has an incredible amount of resources for me to practice on and have a very hands on approach, as well as knowledge in order to for me to consolidate my learning. I would recommend Rhys as well for being incredibly understanding and adaptable- he answered my emails at any time and very promptly, or was willing to change lesson times even at short notice. He was also so friendly and we had fun in our lessons outside of working through LATs.
