Experienced Spanish teacher with tertiary level certification. Graduate of the University of Oxford

Methodology

I have small interactive classes, catering to the needs of each student. I also do one on one classes. My method is student focused, where I first explain grammar and then put the rules to test with various activities, to encourage students to speak and become confident to speak the language.

Background

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish (first class honours). I have also lived and worked in Latin America for a combined period of three years. For the last five months I have been a personal Spanish tutor.
