I make learning fun and relevant. On a one to one basis I adapt the lessons according to the student's needs. In a group I tend to follow a designed study program. I use music and a variety of visual aids, like photo cards, posters and realia. With me, students will learn more than a language; they will learn the culture, origin of words, current language trends, a bit of history, etc., of the Spanish speaking world. However, acquiring speaking, listening, reading and writing skills will be the main focus.
I started teaching Spanish in 2001 in colleges and private tuition at different levels. I also ran a language business from 2008 to 2013 in which I taught a maximum of 26 students, and I also did some translations. I am native speaker of Spanish and consider myself a self-taught linguist.
I will charge £30 for distances greater than 10 miles.
I have written an A Level Spanish exam resource for the Getting To Know series of Edexcel resources: (concealed information)
I wrote and published an epic fantasy novel in Spanish in Amazon.
Self-employed since 2008, I ran a language business in which I taught Spanish at different levels, and did some translations to and from Spanish/English.

Fernando was my Spanish tutor for several years, first through night classes at a local college and then through a small private class.
Fernando is a excellent teacher, he made the lessons fun and interesting but kept up a good level of challenge. I learned a great deal from him and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone seeking to learn, or improve, their Spanish.
