Having recently graduated from a Masters in Translation and Interpretation in Spain, following my degree in English Literature and Spanish at the University of Glasgow, I have a passion for languages and learning which I love to share! Seeing students build in confidence and enjoy learning is my motivation to teach.
Feel free to approach me with any requests as I tailor the classes to meet the student's needs. I am happy to teach younger students through games as well as to help students prepare for exams or simply to lead conversation classes on a range of topics. I live in the West End but am happy to travel.
I have a lot of experience teaching English as a foreign language and a TEFL qualification. I worked as a teaching assistant in two primary schools in Spain and also taught many private classes. I tutored nine pupils. The youngest was three years old and the oldest was preparing for her university exams, she did extremely well thanks to the extra support with a native teacher which helped her to grow in confidence, clear up any doubts and learn to enjoy learning!

Avid traveller with an insatiable interest in languages and cultures. I have been living in Madrid for the past year doing a masters, I choose to study there to benefit from fully immersing myself in the Spanish language and culture. I also spent a year in Andalusia teaching English as part of my undergraduate degree. Well- travelled, beginning with my gap year between finishing my A-Levels and beginning university. During my undergraduate I did a beginners course in Portuguese and recently in Madrid I attended a beginner’s Italian course, I thoroughly enjoyed them both and intend to pursue these languages. My other hobbies include exercising and reading.
