Information about Caroline

I am a PGCE qualified Spanish teacher. I spent over 8 years living in Spain during which time I formalised my Spanish knowledge by completing a 2 year masters in the language (University of Barcelona).

I have had a keen interest in not only the language but also its culture (Latin America included) from the time I was at school and studied some of the plays of Garcia Lorca, the great Spanish poet and playright. It´s a language of great imagery, and is relatively easy to learn and fun to speak.

I enjoy taking on new students and helping them reach their goal, be that to speak a basic amount of Spanish for when they go on holiday, or as preparation for moving abroad and a job, or if they wish to work towards an exam. I have taught students as young as 4, as well as teenagers, but I strongly believe you are never too old to learn something, and very much enjoying teaching adults who are motivated to learn a new language.

In my classes I take a methodical approach and introduce all elements of language practice, from reading, writing, speaking and listening, from day 1 to ensure that you progress in a natural and structured way.

Availability: *I am currently in Spain until July 2019 and can only offer Skype classes as a result, this can be a convenient way to learn for anyone who is not a total beginner.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: Spanish: 2 year`s experience teaching secondary school Spanish (inc. GCSE) and adult education classes and many private tutoring classes for GCSE Spanish. I lived for 8 years living in Spain so have a very good understanding of how people actually speak, rather than in a text book. I have a masters in Spanish obtained in Spain. Prior to that I obtained the DELE, the highest level - C2 in the Spanish Language. (Europeans levels are from A1 (beginners) to C2 (advanced).

For Spanish classes I can offer you a simple and enjoyable way of understanding the language, from a second language learner`s position. I use a variety of materials, including a comedy video series for language learners, and songs as well as books and online resources.

English: 10 years` experience teaching EFL, CELTA qualification. I have worked with adults mostly, but also children, and enjoy teaching both. I have taught complete beginners through to advanced.

I enjoy teaching, and while I use a structured approach based on books, I also use a a lot of materials I have found online, including songs, videos, and interactive exercises. I adapt to the student´s goals in terms of the materials and approach adopted.

I particularly enjoy sharing the wide variety of culturally interesting materials available when appropriate - such as clips from cinema, the news, music, or books, I believe it motivates the students to see real language in use, and helps them learn new vocabulary and language skills in a more interesting way.

The site is complicated to book lessons and has to be from 24 hours time of booking before the lesson.

5/5 Rating

Caroline has been a brilliant tutor - very patient and encouraging.
My daughter lacked confidence before she started her extra Spanish lessons. Caroline planned the lessons to ensure that all the topic areas were covered in a thorough but engaging way. My daughter immediately started to feel more confident and passed her Spanish GCSE with flying colours.
