Hispanic Studies graduate, formerly residing in Spain, offering Spanish lessons in South London.

Methodology

In a typical hour tutoring lesson, I believe it important to focus closely on the specific issues a student may have had throughout the week. Often I find that due to the density of many academic syllabi, various topics are covered at an alarmingly fast rate, subsequently not allowing students to fully comprehend the content. Therefore in my sessions, the first 20-30mins are dedicated to answering the students specific questions and developing a true understanding of a problem area. The following period focuses on setting practical exercises for the student to complete, based on the initial problematic subject. The final 10mins is devoted to recapping what has been covered, in order to ensure that the student has developed a firm understanding of the topic, allowing them to move forward with confidence.

Experience

I am a 22 year old graduate, who has taken Spanish since the age of 11. Having studied the language at GCSE, A-Level and University, I am well equipped to help with a number of different aspects, such as grammar, comprehension and oral proficiency. Furthermore, as I am not far removed from being taught Spanish myself, I am able to relate closely to the common problems that language students, of all ages, tend to experience.
