Tell me about some of your current students.
My students come from a variety of different secondary schools who prepare for GCSE’s and A levels. Others are adults who need and want to learn Spanish for a variety of reasons. The majority of students come to my home address. Testimonial - "I have been studying with Isabel for a year and a half and I have noticed significant improvement in my Spanish translation, speaking and overall grammar. She is a fantastic tutor and has really helped me survive my GCSE's. She makes the lessons fun and easy to understand. I've never been so confident in my Spanish ability"
Do you have a personal message for students?
In 1996 I moved from Madrid (my home town) to London and have been teaching the Spanish language since the birth of my son in 2002. Prior to this, I had worked as a Lawyer in Madrid and as a Headhunter in London. I am currently preparing my DPSI of legal interpretation at the Institute of Linguists and my 11 year old son is already fluent in Spanish. I find language and communication to be a key strength of mine and I enjoy teaching very much. I am more than happy to help you prepare for any exam, help you (from a teacher's point of view) to focus and organize your studies in order to be well prepared. Obviously, there is much more to a language than its main tools of vocabulary and grammar. There is also much more to Spain... well, you know the stereotypes! I believe that it’s important to help you to enjoy the lessons as you progress and stay motivated and confident.
