Writer of poetry and prose with two books published offering English Language tuition in Northamptonshire

Methodology

My teaching is based on the enrichment of vocabulary with the introduction of grammar to build fluency. I devote considerable time to conversational practice using different scenarios to create the need for vocabulary and grammar to be used. I encourage students to read the language, initially advertisements, then small newspaper articles followed by books. I also encourage students to watch videos with sub titles in the two languages concerned. Essays are a tool which I find useful in determining a students progress in both English and Spanish

Experience

I am a retired priest with ten years military service; Head of a Training Establishment and teacher of Spanish to British Expatriates and English for Spanish speakers. I have had many students on an individual basis and tutorials in small groups with audio and visual aids.
