My approach to tutoring is to mix fun exercises with detailed understanding of the fundamentals of the language. I think the student benefits most from building up confidence by learning key vocabulary and structures. Of course learning the grammar of a language is very important. However, this needs to be approached through practical and engaging exercises. I utilise various types of media to introduce the student to Spanish culture whilst building vocabulary.
I teаch оver а Skype videо cоnnectiоn, sо аll yоu need is а micrоphоne/heаdset аnd а webcаm! Online lessоns cаn be аrrаnged аt whаtever time is cоnvenient аnd frоm wherever yоu like.I am аlsо willing tо teаch аt the student´s hоuse оr mine :-) I have a full CRB disclosure check.
An initial call will be made free of charge to discuss the student´s needs. This allows me to make a judgement of the level of language the student possesses and also to discuss any specific syllabus that may be required. After this call, payment for subsequent lessons must be made in advance via Paypal. Lessons can be cancelled with 24 hours notice free of charge. However, any lessons cancelled after this time need to be paid in full.

My lessons have taken place both face to face and on-line and so I have developed adaptable techniques to bring the best out of each student´s specific requirements.
I´ve got experience teaching groups and of course in 1:1 tuition. Some of the companies where I´ve taught Spanish include the BBC, Chivas Brothers, Chingford Fruit, Pernod Ricard and the NHS.
