I think language learning is most fun when it's linked to real life situations. I like using videos, articles and interesting online sources as stimuli. I like to drill new vocabulary in with fun games! Nobody learns if it's boring...
I have just graduated from the University of Nottingham with a First Class Honours degree in Spanish and Russian. I spent a year abroad to improve my language skills. In Argentina I worked as a Language Facilitator in various English Language Institutes, focusing on helping students with verbal comprehension and communication. I lived with host families for the entire time I was working in Argentina, so I really had the chance to speak Spanish and improve my skills.
I tutored a year 10 student beginners' level Russian for around 7 months in Nottingham. She was learning the language from scratch so I gave her a solid grounding of the basics of Russian grammar and vocabulary.

Jagger was working with me at my institute as language facilitator and she was really nice and kind with the students. she had a lot of material and ideas to work with the kids. as well as the adults. ...she speaks spanish perfectly .she is a wonderful person. I fullt recommend her.
Jagger is a devoted linguist to all studies Hispanic and is in her final year at university study Spanish and Russian. After having spent 1/2 year in Argentina she is linguistically very proficient and is extremely trustworthy, reliable and would prepare well for all lessons taught. As her step mother (knowing her from 7 years of age) & being the Head of Languages at an Independent Day School in London (Colfe's School) and now lead Teacher trainer, I would be delighted to teacher train her as she completes her undergraduate studies. She has patience, insight and outstanding subject knowledge - all qualities we look for in potential teacher trainees. As such, being part of a tuition community would serve her well and she would be of huge value to you, for that I am sure.
Jagger helped me and my teachers in Argentina last year as an English language facilitator. She's a sweet commited girl who was always willing to give us a hand in making our lessons more entertaining and fun. She also taught us a lot about her culture and traditions. What's more, her Spanish is perfect, her fluency, pronunciation and range of vocabulary she manages are almost proficient.
I highly recommend Jagger not only because I truly believe that she can be an excellent and caring tutor but because she is a wonderful human being.
