Information about Marta
I am a dynamic and passionate Spanish tutor whose main motivation is to help and guide her students through the process of learning a language and encourage them to achieve their goals while enjoying the journey. I use several types of resources to make my lessons enjoyable and dynamic.
Whether you need to reinforce your Spanish in preparation for your GCSE/ A-levels or you are looking to learn Spanish as a hobby or for professional purposes, I always make sure to tailor my resources to the needs of the learner.
Being a language learner myself I understand how frustrating learning a language can be at times but with a positive attitude, practice and good guidance, nothing is too difficult! I believe learning a language is a life-changing skill and that is why I find extremely rewarding to share my knowledge of the Spanish language and culture through teaching.
Availability: I work at a school in the morning and therefore, I am available from 15.30 onwards, depending on location. *Currently due to COVID-19 I am available in the mornings for online lessons.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: My deep interest in languages and reading led me to study a degree in humanities whose holistic approach allowed me to gain knowledge in linguistics, second-language teaching, literature and history. To extend my training, I completed a Master`s Degree in language teaching in Madrid, which proved to be extremely valuable to understand the theories behind language acquisition and learning. I have been awarded QTS (qualified teacher status) by the Department for Education in the UK.
My position as a language teacher in Spanish schools for three years gave me experience with different age groups, from preparing 16-18 year-old students for their university entrance exams to teaching children languages through games and storytelling.
I am also well familiarised with the English educational system due to my four years of experience assisting in English schools. Specially relevant it is my experience as a Spanish language assistant for two academic years during which I conducted conversation classes with small groups of students in Years 12 and 13, helping them to prepare for their Spanish speaking exam in A-levels. I currently work in a
secondary school in West London as a learning support mentor and I support students with SEN in their Spanish lessons by using different strategies to make the Spanish curriculum accessible for them.
Feedback For Marta (5)
Very engaging. My daughter is really enjoying her lessons and feels like she has made significant improvement. Communication has been great too with both myself and my daughter.
Marta is a wonderful teacher and really engaging. My daughter absolutely loves her lessons and really looks forward to them every week. She said it doesn`t feel like work and learning is so much fun. Every lesson is upbeat and encouraging and has given my daughter a real passion for learning Spanish. I highly recommend Marta not only for her wonderful lesson plans but also for her enthusiasm and great teaching skills - she knows how to get the best out of children!
Marta is a wonderful teacher, very easy to talk to and always provides great feedback after the session! I highly recommend Marta :)
Marta is a wonderful Spanish tutor. She really helped me progress in Spanish taking me from a grade 4 to a grade 8. She is very organised and tailors the lessons for your own personal requirements. She is very useful in creating content for revision and language practice and helped me push myself in the subject. She motivated me and I enjoyed our lessons as she made them interesting and fun. I would really recommend Marta to anyone who wants to achieve the high grades in Spanish.
Marta is wonderful. She has only been here a few times, but has already helped with our daughter`s Spanish so much. I would highly recommend her.
