As someone who has struggled with spanish, I have met an array of Spanish teachers in my quest to learn the language. Nonetheless, Alicia is the most engaging and enjoyable teacher I have met thus far. She is very supportive and motivating whilst still remaining focused in her language teaching. She goes at the pace you need but is also very encouraging. Her resources are impeccable and her spanish speaking is clear and easy to follow. She really breaks down everything you need and also helps fill in the gaps for anything you might not know. An amazing teacher, would recommend to anyone studying a language at degree level or even learning a language full stop! My confidence in speaking spanish has improved noticeably and my subject knowledge has been greatly facilitated with her support after only one week. Can`t thank her enough, un maestro fantástico!
Alicia is a very responsible and knowledgeable tutor. She takes an interest in her students and encourages them to achieve to their full potential. She supported my daughter with GCSE preparation (new exam). I would highly recommend Alicia as a Spanish tutor.

Alicia has been the perfect tutor for my daughter (A level) and improved her spoken Spanish very quickly. Alicia is dedicated to her work & could not have been a better match for my daughter.
Alicia`s tutoring was really helpful
