I come from the South of Spain, Seville, famous for its orange trees, dancing horses, flamenco guitars and long siestas in the heat of the afternoon. I studied a Higher Degree in Media in the University Hispalense of Seville, but soon after I finished my University studies I started teaching English to children. I took then a year´s course in the Universidad Complutense of Madrid to become a qualified teacher.
In 2003 I moved to England and embraced teaching immediately. I began in Adult Learning and the education of corporate groups in big companies and thoroughly enjoyed it. I not only enjoyed teaching the language but also sharing with my students my love and passion for the Spanish culture, music and way of life.
After years in adult education, I moved into the School sector, and I currently teach 11-16 year olds in a Private Independent school. Once a week I also teach in a Primary school, instilling my passion for Spanish in younger children aged 8 and 9. In addition to all of this, I also tutor online (“Spanish with soul”) where I teach Spanish at any level to all ages. My pupils, like me, love Spanish and are passionate about this beautiful language. I´m very proud to say that over my teaching years many of my students have taken Spanish Studies Degrees in different Universities in the UK, and I would like to think I had something to do with that!
Being the mother of two bilingual sons, I know what a great gift it is being able to speak two different languages; being able to understand the world from two different perspectives and seeing it through two different colours.
I am looking forward to meeting new, eager students and helping them in this fresh and exciting adventure!
