I offer Spanish lessons from complete beginners to advanced level, as well as GCSE and A Level tuition. I like to give equal weight to reading, writing, listening and speaking but can tailor my lessons to suit my students' requirements. It is important that my students enjoy their lessons and take as much out of them as possible, therefore I can offer themed lessons to improve vocabulary and introduce students to Spanish and Latin American culture.
In my English lessons I help my students with their grammar, vocabulary and oral and written expression, as well as helping them to improve their knowledge of British culture. Whether you would like grammar classes, conversation practise or to learn more about culture, I can help you to improve your English in a fun and immersive way.
I'm a recent graduate of the University of Kent where I achieved a 2:1 in my degree in modern languages. I have over 1 year of experience teaching Spanish and English as a foreign language to both children and adults. I have lived in Spain where I studied for a term at the University of Vigo and have worked as an au pair and English tutor for Spanish families in Madrid and Valencia.

Sophie is an extremely conscientious young woman and will always strive to do her best in everything she sets her mind to. The same applies to her teaching. She became interested in tutoring by observing my lessons with my own students and since then has been constantly thinking about how she can renovate her lessons with her current students by discussing them with me and with her tutees. Not to mention that her passion for languages and culture really comes through in her teaching, as I have previously observed. Her passion for languages, teaching and drive to be better is truly astounding.
I met Sophie in university and after knowing her for nearly four years, I've seen her passion for language and teaching grow incredibly.
Sophie is passionate about language and has used travelling to improve her Spanish and French to a great degree. She teaches useful skills and vocabulary to help anyone quickly feel confident in speaking a new language.
