Experience

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's response

Rebecca has a strong base of Spanish. She can hold intermediate/upper intermediate conversation only pausing to remember certain words and verb conjugations. I really enjoyed getting to know her in her first session and I am looking forward to next week!

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 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!

Eleanor

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!

Laura really helped me gain confidence and knowledge in the Spanish language in preparation for my exams. She is kind and patient which helped boost my confidence using the language both speaking and writing. I cannot recommend her enough and would like to thank her for all her hard work over the last year.

Interview with Laura

QUESTION 01 | 08
1) Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Laura — I speak Spanish and English thanks to my parents. My British father went to work in Venezuela in the 90s as a cowboy (not sure what spurred this rogue decision) and he met my Venezuelan mother on the ranch. They lived out there for 11 years (&had me) and We've spoken a lovely mix of Spanglish at home ever since.
I chose to study politics and Spanish at university in order to gain insight into Venezuela's political landscape and to perfect my Spanish grammar. Four years on and I have graduate with a distinction in oral Spanish and having worked for a year teaching English in a Chilean university.
QUESTION 02 | 08
2) Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Laura — Pedro Almodovar is the figure that I would choose as the emblematic representative of Spanish culture. He has produced great films such as 'Volver' which encapsulates much of Hispanic culture. If any of my students are cinephiles, I have a great list of film which I can recommend to stretch their learning that little bit further.
QUESTION 03 | 08
3) Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?
Laura — 'Sana sana colita de rana ,Si no sanas hoy, Sanarás mañana'
This is the phrase that many Hispanic parents will sing to their kids if they've had a bit of a bump or a fall. In English it doesn't translate quite so cutely... ' Heal, Heal, Lizard's butt, if it doesn't heal today, it'll heal tomorrow'
QUESTION 04 | 08
4) Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Laura — Speaking Spanish is about so much more than just being able to order your food when you're abroad. It's about understanding a different culture and world perception. I like to talk with my students about the complexity of directly translation and explain some of the meaning that can be lost in translation.
QUESTION 05 | 08
5) What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Laura — Spanish, luckily is one of the easier languages to learn, with a near identical alphabet and relatively easy phonetics. The only thing I think can take a while to get used to, particularly for beginners, are those pesky irregular verb conjugations, but with regular practice and examples you'll be an expert in no time.
QUESTION 06 | 08
6) Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Laura — While this doesn't relate to my language learning, it does relate to tutoring.
At GCSE Level, I really struggled with Math. (I'm talking didn't understand 75% of the exam struggled). With 6 months of private tuition, I went from a predicted E to achieving an A in my summer exams. Not only that but I actually began to enjoy Maths! 1-1 tuition is unparalleled in its ability to supercharge learning and confidence.
QUESTION 07 | 08
7) How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Laura — Although my Spanish was already fluent before I left for my year abroad, it was entirely composed of Venezuelan and Spanish colloquialisms. After travelling through Chile, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Paraguay, I learnt so much more both in terms of the continents culture and language differences.
QUESTION 08 | 08
8) What makes you a Superprof in language?
Laura — In my opinion a good learning environment is one that is interesting, creative and friendly. I hope to provide all my students with tailored classes that build their confidence while also capturing their interests. Everyone is different, and so it's no surprise that we all learn differently. I look forward to potentially helping you to fulfil your goal of learning Spanish, your way!
