« I have been working with Helena for 18 months and I can wholeheartedly recommend Helena as a Spanish tutor. She is patient and supportive, but also comes up with imaginative activities to suit my interests. She has a wonderfully clear accent and has really helped my pronunciation. She is always smiling, good-humoured and has a very positive attitude, which makes lessons very enjoyable. My confidence has improved and I am delighted to see my improvements and be on this journey with Helena. »

Hotel and tourism professional offering online Spanish lessons, improving your vocabulary, expressions, speaking and listening ability

Methodology

How do my classes work? We kick off with an assessment whereby I understand a little about your needs and goals, any timeframes, current Spanish Level, and learning preferences or style. I then create a detailed learning plan for you based on your needs and preferences and we start to work towards your goals!

Typically students have the following needs:
1. Pronunciation, the pronunciation of accents and accents in words
2. Verb conjugation
3. informal and formal pronouns
4. Vocabulary for common situations
5. Conversational practice

My priority is that students feel calm speaking Spanish and have the fluency to communicate in day-to-day situations

Experience

I am a Travel and Tourism graduate from the Externado University in Bogota, Colombia where I specialized in Marketing Management. I have over 10 years of experience working as a Sales Manager for a number of luxury hotel chains like Karisma and Hyatt.

I relocated to England from Colombia this year with my husband and have since dedicated myself to teaching Spanish which I have found to be very rewarding. No matter your motivation to learn, whether it's to prepare for an exam, for business purposes, or a trip to Latin America I will help you achieve your goal for the Spanish Language!

Everybody who wants to learn Spanish has a different motivation, starting point, and objective for the level they want to achieve and I work to ensure that you meet your goals in the desired timeframe.



Some common goals include:

GCSE and A-Level Spanish practice

Conversational and Business Spanish

Pronunciation

Verbs – Regular and Irregular

Vocabulary

A little about me! I love animals and living in the countryside and am proud to be the human of my lovely dog “Chiquita” who we adopted from Chile! I enjoy eating out and dancing salsa and really miss the nightlife in Bogota which is so diverse and vibrant. I also love my mother tongue and love to teach it. I Am organized and committed and support my students on their Spanish journey.

Look forward to hearing from you.

I met Helena in England and I am very happy for that. I really appreciate the time she has given me so far. Helena is an extremely friendly, kind and patient person, she is willing to listen and she likes to help and motivate others in their ideas and dreams. It is a pleasure to talk to her every time, I am excited about it and I hope that we will stay in touch for a long time. Thank you Helena :). I highly recommend this experience to everyone!

I’ve known Helena for over 10 years since I met her here in London. She moved to Colombia for a while and also have lived in Chile. During this time, she has been working in the hotel and tourism business which she has been very successful.
I am very happy that Helena is back in London.
She is overall friendly , kind, reliable and has always a very positive attitude.

Best regards,
Andrea
