I tutor students studying for GCSE or A-level Spanish, or those interested in learning the language for enjoyment's sake. I base my first lesson on your requirements as a student, and then develop the following lessons based on a combination of your feedback to me and my observations from the first lesson.
I have recently graduated from my degree in Spanish and Linguistics at the University of Oxford. I have been tutoring throughout my studies at GCSE and A-Level standard, drawing on both my academic experience of Spanish and my time spent in Spain on a year abroad.

Spanish Literature: to 1499
Study of the development of Spanish literature from its origins up to the “Golden Age”, taking a broad view of the literary output of Iberian Medieval society. This includes early lyric, epic poetry such as “El Poema de mio Cid”, works of exemplary fiction such as “El Conde Lucanor” among other genres. I took a special interest in Spanish literature with Arabic origins, including the Mozarabic kharjas, and how this cultural confluence influenced later works.
Phonetics & Phonology
Topics including speech acquisition, perception and production, including areas such as the speech perception capacities of children, variability in speech, coarticulation and other theories of production planning. This module required the submission of a 4000-word Lab Report on accent variation in the British Isles, based on the analysis of a corpus of speech recordings. The report also involved in-depth research into current trends in the linguistic study of accent variation, and subsequent compilation of this research into a literature review to situate my findings in the wider field of Phonetics.
Modern Spanish Linguistics
Essays and data-analysis assignments concerning the synchronic linguistics of Modern Spanish in Europe and the Americas. This includes detailed phonetic transcription of passages, syntactic analysis of sentences and morphological analysis of words and compounds, as well as research into sociolinguistic variation between dialects and the semantics and pragmatics of Spanish.
