ESOL Lecturer, EAP Tutor and Spanish tutor.
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I have been working in education for over 7 years. Mainly teaching ESOL and English for Academic Purposes. In addition, I am a PhD student.
Languages, literature and film.
My lessons are engaging and interactive and I love using technology whenever it is possible. However, my students’ needs come first so I am quite flexible and will listen to you first before deciding our approach.
I started tutoring in 2012 when I went back to Spain after my Erasmus year abroad at Royal Holloway College. I have been teaching non-stop since then!
I am passionate about languages and plan to learn more languages myself! Regarding film and literature, which my PhD is on, there is nothing I enjoy more. Being able to teach what you love is a privilege.
I am keen on gamification, task-based learning and integrated skills approaches.
I really enjoy spending time with students (they make me feel younger ha!) and having fun while making progress. It’s so rewarding to see my students achieving their goals.
I really believe in teaching strategies rather than content in order to foster learners’ autonomy.
I would say the fact that they are able to learn in a positive and friendly environment where nobody is being told off for having forgotten something. No question is stupid and mistakes help us all learn :)
I have successfully prepared students for ESOL exams, university entrace exams, Cambridge ESOL, IELTS, research papers, oral presentations...
I have a BA in English, MA in Education and I am a PhD student. As well as that, I have courses on Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.
I have always been interested in the process of learning and was really curious about how each person learns in a different way. It’s a fascinating field.
I love videogames, reading, films and series...
