I also have teenagers doing Spanish GCSE and Spanish A level and want to get a good grade..they always get one!
Martha is an excellent teacher, she had a very good interaction and real time assessment of my understanding and needs. I had a good variety of activities which Martha could adapt to maximise effectiveness. I had good feedback about progression and areas of focus to fill the gaps of my learning and homework was very helpful to my specific language needs.
Martha is very dynamic and friendly teacher. Her knowledge of Brazilian Portuguese made my understanding of Spanish much easier. I believe she is the best teacher I ever had!
Martha's unique and clever way of teaching is funand made learning so easy. We played Spanish Bingo and even sang Karaoke together to learn, hence I was learning without even realizing it. Martha is a wonderful caring person with an amazing patience and a fantastic sense of humour too. She is a great teacher. I highly recommend Martha to anyone either wanting to learn a new language or who is relocating to the UK with their family and may be in need of the assistance of a Cultural Mentor.
