Information about Andrea
I`m bilingual in Spanish and French. My mother tongue is Spanish, whereas my relationship with the French language started when I was 4 years old. I studied at the French School of Valencia for 13 years and subsequently graduated in French Language, Literature and Culture. I am currently studying a master in Spanish Linguistics at the Spanish University of Distance Learning.
I`m very passionate about learning languages and their associated cultures -currently I am learning Italian. Teaching for me is a way to share this knowledge with other people. It is always a new challenge and a mutually rewarding exchange in which I do my utmost to aid the pupil to progress as quickly as possible.
I will personalise the lessons according to your needs, enabling you to maximise the rewards from the time together. This will be achieved through a mix of exercises, role play, realia, grammar study and the extension of your vocabulary.
I am most keen to share my linguistic knowledge, and am also happy to incorporate extra cultural information into the lessons such as songs, films or TV programs and so on.

Andrea was very helpful and supportive, my daughter got the A grade she wanted! Thanks
Andrea is an excellent teacher. She is enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable and always arrives with the lesson thoroughly prepared. I would highly recommend her to anybody requiring a Spanish teacher.
Andrea knows her subject well and is a perceptive tutor. I enjoy her lessons so far very much and am already feeling more confident in Spanish.
