Isabel - Crouch End - Spanish

Methodology

I specialise in teaching the new specification GCSE and A level Spanish for AQA and Edexcel examination boards, as well as IGCSE followed by certain schools. My aim is to teach the language building the grammar knowledge and to enjoy the progress.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Spanish beginners, conversation, GCSE and A-Level exams, Spanish for university students or mature Adults. I also do translations, proof-reading, and accent coaching.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Licenciatura en Derecho- Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. Diploma in Translation- Westminster University. English- Spanish, Spanish- English. DPSI- Institute of Linguists.

- How much do you charge?

£45 for 60 minutes
£65 for 90 minutes- recommended for A level students.
When requested, I tutor two or three maximum in one session. Price per person:
£30 per person / 60 minutes
£40 / 60 min
40/ 60 min.- telephone or Skype.

- Where do you teach?

Students are taught at home in Crouch End or off site if local

- When are you available?

I'm quite flexible. Every now and then I travel to visit family and friends in Madrid. On such an occasion we could consider to do a lesson over Skype.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Any age and any level, at school up to A-Level, University students and my youngest student so far is just 11 and the oldest is 65.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Any exams, GCSE, A-Level, written/oral exams, university exams, translations, presentations, papers, essays, projects, auditions

- Do you have a personal message for students?

In 1996 I moved from Madrid (my home town) to London and have been teaching the Spanish language since the birth of my son in 2002. Prior to this, I had worked as a Lawyer in Madrid and as a Headhunter in London. I am currently preparing my DPSI of legal interpretation at the Institute of Linguists and my 11 year old son is already fluent in Spanish. I find language and communication to be a key strength of mine and I enjoy teaching very much. I am more than happy to help you prepare for any exam, help you (from a teacher's point of view) to focus and organize your studies in order to be well prepared. Obviously, there is much more to a language than its main tools of vocabulary and grammar. There is also much more to Spain... well, you know the stereotypes! I believe that it's important to help you to enjoy the lessons as you progress and stay motivated and confident.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Teaching year 7 to A-Level: Teaching Spanish.

i have been studying Spanish with Isabel for a year and a half and I have noticed a significant improvement in my Spanish translation, speaking and overall grammar. She is a fantastic tutor and has really helped me to survive my GCSE's. She makes the lessons fun and easy to understand. I've never been so confident in my Spanish ability.

I have known Isabel for the last 14 years. She has a unique ability to teach the Spanish language in a way that is both fun and professional. There are many Spanish tutors to choose from in London, however I can fully recommend her to anyone interested in truly learning this language. You will not certainly not regret it. Good luck to you.

J
Jake- A level student. 18 years old.

I have been tutored by Isabel for nearly a year and a half. After she was recommended to me by people I know, since then my spanish has improved in many aspects. I have become more confident. She has a very strong knowledge of the language, but what it suits as important, is her desire to put effort into her students to ensure they all do well.

B
Becca- GCSE student- 16 years old.

Isabel has tutored me for about two years.When I first came to her I was not only weak and likely to achieve a C but I did not enjoy Spanish. She has taken me to an A grade and I have a deeper understanding of the language as well as enjoying Spanish. She is always willing to help with anything I do not understand.I would very much recommend her to anyone in need of Spanish tutor

E
Ellie- A level student- 17 years old.

I have been tutored by Isabel for 3 years now. She has guided me through GCSE in which I received an A grade and also through AS. Although now I no longer academically study Spanish my love for the language and my ability has been able to prosper with her guidance. I now focus on Spanish speaking with her where my fluency and accent has improved greatly.

l
lily- GCSE student. 15 years old.

I am a tu tee of Isabel and have been for the last two years. When I just started with her, I had very little knowledge of the language and before I did not enjoy it at all. Isabel has helped me to have a stronger understanding of Spanish vocabulary and has raised my grade massively. She is very keen to help, make sure you achieve the best grade possible and always puts a smile on your face.

M
Michael-32 years old

I've only been studying with Isabel for the last five months but my
written and spoken Spanish have both improved dramatically during that
period. Our classes have been stretching and challenging but lots of
fun at the same time! They always strike a nice balance between
conversation and more technical/grammar work.
