Hello! I offer Spanish tutoring up to A Level standard for students who are preparing to take exams either this summer on in coming years. These lessons will vary each time, containing a mix of reading and speaking to suit the needs of the student, and once I have a gauge of the level of the student I will tailor these lessons to fill any gaps in their knowledge and also to push them further in their capabilities. Anything I teach will always be geared towards the relevant syllabus, so the student is not wasting time learning things they don't need to know and all bases are being covered.
The format of my lessons is very flexible. The aim of tutoring is for it to be as beneficial as possible to the student, so if a student wants to focus on anything specific in a particular lesson that will take precedence over anything I had previously planned to cover. I also try to create as comfortable an environment as possible, promoting confidence in my students and encouraging them to ask any questions that they have to ensure they get the most out of the lessons.
As well as this, I also offer online conversation classes for people who want to learn how to speak Spanish without wanting to go through grammar explanations and any written exercises.
The reason I began offering this option is that many people aren't interested in being able to write in another language, and only want to invest time in the most important part of language learning - speaking the language. This is why in these classes you will spend an hour speaking with me with no structure to the lessons. The lessons are allowed to flow freely, so in every session a large range of topics can be covered, and the conversation is able to proceed naturally without feeling forced. I will always try to branch the conversation out into different areas, speaking about the things that you enjoy (which of course are the best things to speak about), challenging you and making sure that the classes don't become repetitive.
I first began tutoring in December 2016, over two years ago, and in that time I've taught over 300 hours of lessons with many different student in Spanish, Maths and Economics. I've seen great improvements in confidence in all of my students, and week after week I always see more engagement and interaction, showing their increased enjoyment of the subject. One of my students no longer studies Spanish at school, but has continued to take Spanish conversation classes with me alongside his A Levels after really enjoying being tutored by me for his GCSE last year.
I have lived in England my whole life, and began studying Spanish over 8 years ago, when I was 13. I always loved the language, and have continued to study it at Durham University. My journey learning the language has been a fantastic one and there aren't many feelings that beat when you can tell you're really getting better at a language, and I want as many people to have that experience as possible.
Last year I went on a Year Abroad, spending the year in Barcelona, Colombia, Perú and Bolivia, allowing my Spanish to reach a very high level. Because of this mixture of study and putting the language into practice in a range of roles (internships in Barcelona and Colombia, volunteering in Perú), I am able to combine a strong grasp on the technicalities of the language with a great confidence in speaking. I try my best to pass my experience onto my students.
In Perú, I volunteered teaching English for 6 weeks in primary schools. This further experience in education, especially in such a different environment to those that I'm used to, forced me to be very adaptable and made me even better able to provide ways of understanding specific to each individual student.

Hey, my name is Shandon, I'm 22 and am in my final year at Durham University, where I study Economics and Spanish. I've been in love with tutoring for a long time now, and my mission is to provide a tailored online learning experience to help students to truly enjoy their learning. I tutor in Spanish and Maths all the way up to A Level standard, and also provide Spanish conversation classes for those who want to improve only their speaking ability.
My main focus in my lessons is to ensure that the content and the method of learning is tailored towards each student, as I feel that too often tutors provide a blanket approach to their classes which leads to students becoming demotivated. In this way, students are greater able to engage with the lessons. Further, I aim to make tutoring an enjoyable experience, so that the classes feel less like a lecture and more like a relaxed, interactive experience.
