Effective and inspiring Spanish lessons

I'm a highly experienced, enthusiastic Spanish teacher. For the past five years, I have been designing and delivering lessons for a range of learners, from beginners to advanced, specialising in Spanish for business, DELE, undoing fossilized mistakes in competent speakers, tuning correction, speech delivering and Hispanic authors. I've given private tuition to a huge variety of students – ages have ranged from 7 to 81, and backgrounds from actresses to racing drivers. I've taught doctoral students, homeschooled children, surgeons, businessmen, athletes, holidaymakers and journalists.

My love for language and culture, along with my interest in human behaviour, help me to be a conscientious and empathetic instructor, with many strategies to engage and motivate students, to promote their critical thinking and to really get them using the language. I strive for excellence, knowing that every student is different, and I prefer to offer bespoke lessons according to their tastes and learning styles. That's the way to get the best results. My great grandfather was a teacher, my father as well, and I've always had a restless curiosity and desire to help people learn.

Outstanding Spanish Tutor!

Carmen has a natural talent for identifying the strengths and weaknesses of her students and pitches her content perfectly. She has an infectious enthusiasm for sharing her native language, is very patient and her preparation for each lesson is always complete and incorporates refreshingly original content. Carmen is a delight to spend time with, a totally engaging personality and we feel most fortunate to have found her.

Excellent teacher and great person

Carmen has been my Spanish teacher for over a year. She is extremely reliable, patient, and serious about her work. She has a winning personality and loves to laugh. She goes about the work methodically, corrects my errors in a constructive manner, yet is very flexible in the sense of responding to any immediate needs or questions I have, or with needed schedule changes. She is simply a lovely person, which has made studying with her a joy, and thus it has been quite fruitful. I have learned a lot. Do not think that I am exaggerating here, I'm certain she is just as good with other students as she has been with me. And working with her will be a pleasure for whomever has the luck to have her as a teacher.
Excellent, beyond expectations
