Information about Begoņa

Teaching .. my true vocation in life. If someone was to ask me what is the best thing that I can do with my life, I would answer without any doubt "Teaching". I love teaching and learning at the same time, in fact, I usually say that I cannot remember a day in my life without studying or learning something new.

I consider myself reliable, methodical, punctual with friendly manners and empathic.

Availability: From 8:00 to 21:00

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: Today I am teaching Spanish at Hinckley & Nuneaton College. Additionally, I teach privately and I deliver Spanish courses to companies such as Jaguar and public institutions such as the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Ministry of Defense (MOD). I collaborated as a Spanish teacher with Sidney Stringer Academy (GCSE) when I was completing my Diploma in Education and Training at the University of Warwick. Additionally, I obtained my QTLs (Qualified Teacher Status) and became a professional membership of the Education and Training Foundation.

I have enjoyed teaching Spanish to people of all ages, the youngest being just 4 years old and the oldest being over 70. I teach all levels, from complete beginners, young learners, GCSE, A Level or degree level as well as adults wishing to learn a few phrases for holidays or business trips, or people who plan to live in Spain. Furthermore, I have also taught Spanish language to Erasmus Students in my country.

I have a large experience in several Public High Schools in Spain and in private education as well.

I taught in an Adult Education Public Centre where I prepared the access exam to University (Literacy, Maths and Science).

I make my lessons as interactive and enjoyable as possible using all kind of activities, flashcards, games, audios, music, art and stories. It is amazing how quickly children, teenager and adults pick up the language in a natural way, without stress. I try to teach not only a language but also the Spanish lifestyle, cuisine, customs and culture.

I have had experience working in both the public and private sectors of education and have taught students of different age groups which has enabled me to develop the skills and abilities required to be able to encourage and promote the students best potential. I am able to set priorities, identify problems and focus my attention and energy on resolving these issues. Most importantly, I like to find new and creative ways of teaching that motivate and encourage the students to learn in an enjoyable and challenging environment.

A good classroom session is never the result of improvisation or chance, so, I have made this my motto "90 percent of transpiration, 10 percent talent" for organizing, planning contents, goals, time, procedures paying special care and attention to diversity in the class, adapting myself to the real needs of the pupils. I did also a level 3 course in understanding Autism.

Spanish language is a beautiful and useful language because of the growing populations and economies of many Spanish-speaking countries and their growing international tourism as well. I love my mother language and I would be delighted to help you. In person, with Skype ...everything is a good idea if you want to learn ... because, where there is a wish there is a way...

In addition, I have developed my own website in which you would be able to practise your Spanish.

Begona is an excellent tutor who put so much into each of her lessons. With her different exercises and methods of teaching each class is different and thoroughly enjoyable. I have other tutors but I feel I am learning so much with Begona.

We are very pleased with Begona and how she is helping to teach us Spanish. We find the lessons enjoyable and fun which helps the learning process. The lessons are well structured and Begona is a good teacher. We find it helps that Begona is native Spanish which makes the conversational side more authentic.

Begoña is warm, inspiring and a brilliant teacher. She really invests in her lessons, making you feel fully supported, and has an ability to explain the complexities of language clearly, which really helped me to grasp new elements of A Level Spanish. With her wonderful personality and gift for teaching, I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

Begona has been tutoring my daughter for the last three months and I can`t praise her highly enough. She is very friendly and welcoming with a relaxed teaching style. Begona uses a wide variety of resources to keep the lessons fun and interesting, and my daughter really enjoys her lessons. Five star recommendation from us!

Begoña is one of the best teacher`s I`ve had!
From the get go, her enthusiasm and knowledge of not only my course but spanish too is so inspiring.
Every week she tailors the lessons for my needs and what we both think will work best for me - grammar, speaking, or even comprehension.
The best thing is you can tell she puts so much effort into her lessons away from the classroom too - like giving me manageable homework, creating diagrams to help me learn topic specific vocab or just preparing questions to ask me!
Highly recommend to anyone of any level in Spanish
Thanks so much!

Begoña truly is an outstanding teacher.

Among the attributes that Begoña possesses are enthusiasm, patience and the ability to organise/prepare lessons specific to the learner with a professional approach.

She has the ability to construct fabulous lessons which are not only enjoyable but you really leave with a feeling of great accomplishment.

Coupled with these great attributes. Begoña has a dedicated classroom with numerous resources.

Whatever level you aspire to be. If you are interested in learning Spanish. I would wholeheartedly recommend Begoña without hesitation. The first lesson is free. So you`ve got nothing to lose.

Begoña is an amazing tutor! She has the ability to change lessons depending on your ability and on what you are desiring to achieve from the sessions. Furthermore her lessons are always interesting and fun, and if you are struggling with something she takes things slower and helps you improve on them. As someone only knowing GCSE Spanish, i believe I have learnt so much in the lessons I`ve had with begoña, especially with verb tenses. Really, I couldn`t recommend her more! So if you are debating learning or improving your Spanish, seriously consider this lovely lady as a tutor :)

Begona is an amazing teacher. My family and I are really enjoying our Spanish lessons and we can`t believe how well we are doing in such a short time. Begona is so lovely and incredible with the children. She is good fun and that of course makes learning fun. Without hesitation I would highly recommend Begona to anyone who wants to learn Spanish.
