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.

She listened to my goals from the outset and has tailored the classes to address the areas I want to work on. I am looking forward to continuing my classes with Laura and think she will really help my Spanish to improve!

Laura is very friendly tutor and really helped my confidence with speaking in Spanish. She’s very efficient and reliable and would recommend to anyone who is hoping to either improve, practice or really advance their Spanish! I have enjoyed every lesson with her and look forward to all my future ones too!
I found Laura through a language agency a couple years ago when I was looking to travel South America during my sabbatical year. Her lessons were fun and she taught me Spanish slang I could use along the way in each of the different countries. If you're looking for someone who will make you look forward to language learning, and not see it as a chore, Laura's the one.
Laura is an extremely professional and compassionate tutor. Having studied with her last summer, I can confidently say paying for lessons with her will be a great investment in yourself. I love all types of dance, and she created personalised classes for me on the topic - to make sure I could talk about my interests in Spanish. Gracias Laurita!
Laura has been our babysitter for a number of years and once our girls started studying for their GCSE Spanish, we chose to also employ her as their tutor. After just a few months with her, their spoken Spanish was excellent and they were receiving glowing reports at school. Would highly recommend her to any parent searching for some extra help!
Great classes and a good price too, gracias Laura x
