I have helped young students to prepare successfully for A Levels and GCSE Exams, university students to improve their Spanish speaking skills for presentations (sometimes the day before!) along with helping with essays/dissertations. I also teach Spanish for business and travel, including intensive sessions, Spanish immersion, and refreshers. I consider myself very fortunate with this job and enjoy the time spent with my students. They are all sorts, even ones that simply learn for pleasure!
My experience as an artist, my love for humanities, culture, languages and music informs my lessons and hopefully makes them more enjoyable to others! I try to bring interesting/entertaining content to the lessons, using a number of resources (articles, excerpts from films, TV series, recorded dialogues, songs), tailored to the needs of the student. Ultimately, I make sure that my students' knowledge and command of Spanish evolve in a structured way so they can gain confidence and autonomy.

I earned a BA (Hons) Fine Art from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from the University of Oviedo.
My interest in other cultures and learning took me first to Liége (thank you Erasmus Grant!) where I lived, studied photography and practised my French for a year.
Similar reasons brought me to London, where I have been living and teaching Spanish for more than ten years, earning an MA (Distinction) in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
I am quite passionate about the Spanish language. I take great pleasure in walking my students through the grammar and building vocabulary. I can certainly empathise with moments of doubt, as I have gone through similar (only from Spanish to English!).

Lucía is an excellent professional. She has a great didactic to teach Spanish, with a deep knowledge of the grammar, vast vocabulary and a very clear accent.
Her tutoring style involves a good variety of lessons (grammar, conversation, videos, audio), making it easier to learn the language, through interesting and exciting sessions.
I highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn or increase their level of Spanish.
¡Hoy no lo hablaría con fluidez sin todo su apoyo!
Lucia is a great teacher and a true professional. I have taken lessons with Lucia for five years and am absolutely happy.
She has a true talent to tailor lessons according to needs and personality of her students.
The knowledge i have gained is easy to apply both in real life and in profession oriented situations.
I also found very useful Lucias cultural aspect of knowlege, too, such as Spanish cooking and Music.
Lucia is friendly, patient, and a very accommodating Spanish tutor. Before I began lessons with Lucia, I would describe my level as very basic, knowing only a few words and phrases in the language. With each lesson however, I feel that my vocabulary has expanded, and my confidence in speaking Spanish has grown. In each lesson, we usually begin with conversation, before moving onto grammar and writing exercises. We have also translated newspaper articles and popular Spanish songs together. She has been my Spanish tutor for several years now, and I intend to continue lessons with her for the foreseeable future. Lucia is fantastic and I feel I have made a lot of progress - Jenna C.
