Information about Javier

Dear learner:

My name is Javier, I am a Spanish classicist (BA in classics by the University of Granada), and also qualified teacher of Classics and Spanish. I am currently based in Mitcham. At the moment, I am a secondary and primary school teacher of Spanish, and I am looking for students who want to improve their knowledge in any of these three languages: Spanish, Latin and Ancient Greek. Whether you are an adult looking forward to learn a new language, or you want to improve your son´s/daughter´s result at GCSE / A-levels qualifications, I am here to help you achieve this! I have good experience teaching students all ages, from year threes in primary school to retired people willing improve their command of Spanish.

I am an open minded and flexible person, as well as emphatic and patient. I really enjoy teaching, and I think these personal qualities help me to bring the best out of my students.

In terms of my teaching qualifications, I have carried out my PGCE back in Spain, and I hold QTS here in UK. I am also trained as a Teacher of Spanish as a Second Language through a language school in Granada (DeLengua). On top of this, I have done several courses on MFL teaching methodologies such as TPR and TPRS, which I use when in class. Thanks to this knowledge, I am able to deliver lessons in the target language and guide you from day one to learn Spanish mainly through immersing in the language.

As for Latin and Greek, I believe my sounded subject knowledge to be a key factor in delivering good lessons. During the five years that my BA takes, I read two authors both for Latin and Greek each years. Moreover, I had to take linguistic-related subjects such as Metrics, Morphology and Syntax. All this I can bring to my lessons to give you a full understanding of what can very often be demanding and challenging texts. I have tutored before Ancient Greek at A-levels in Spain, having helped my students to achieve excellent results and progress on the subject.

Availability: I am during the evenings, and on Saturday mornings until the end of the course.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I have a wide variety of experience, both in schools and for independent learners with different goals.
I am at the moment working as a teacher of Spanish in a secondary school. I am the teacher in charge of Spanish up to Y11, so I am very well aware of the national curriculum for KS2 and KS3 and GCSE. I have trained students both for AQA and Edexcel boards, so I am aware of the exam formats as well.
I also teach one day in primary, from years 3 to 6, so I am able to help your son/daughter even from an early stage.
I have also tutored before students for A-Levels of Spanish, helping all of them to progress in the subject and improve their results.
Finally, I have worked as well with adults who want to learn Spanish with different goals: from young professionals to retired people planning to move to Spain. I have taught in a Language School back in Granada, and also here in London. Whether you are looking for individual tuition, or you would like to have lessons in a group with somebody else, I can help you. Do not hesitate to contact me!!

Javier is a really great teacher of Latin. He tailored the lessons for me and his teaching method is immersive and focusses on comprehension rather than translation only. His enthusiasm for his subject makes the lessons consistently fun and engaging. I found that Javier took the time reflect on each lesson and responded to my needs as a student, by highlighting areas I was struggling and finding ways to tackle those areas in a fun way. I very highly recommend Javier as a teacher!

Javier has been an awesome teacher. I was a very challenging student since I had to learn 2 years of Latin in 6 months. Not only I passed but also I got a good mark!
Javier is a really patient tutor and he has an obvious passion and deep knowledge on the subject he`s teaching. I even learnt about other bits a pieces of the Roman culture and not just the language, which made the process of learning a lot more interesting.
From the first lessons he understood what it was that I needed to do and the lessons where created just the way I needed.
Highly recommended, best tutor ever. Thank you Javier!

We have been having 1:1 lessons with Javier for 3 weeks so far and he has been excellent. He`s well organised, friendly and we always get the maximum from the hour we have with him. We would highly recommend Javier for anyone looking to learn Spanish. Liz & Trevor
