Reference for Spanish tutor (1-1)
REFERENCE FOR MERCEDES GROBA – MARCH 2015
I have known Mercedes Groba since August 2013, during which time I have had a few Spanish lessons, on a 1-1 basis.
I came to studying Spanish later in life, - took an A level in 2010 (grade A), and I am still very fond of the language, having worked in Spain a few months. Back in the UK, I tried to keep it alive and thus looked around for a teacher.
I am very happy to say that Mercedes has been a brilliant teacher for me. Not only is she very patient, but also her explanations are both thorough and imaginative. She speaks well, clearly and seems to have the ability to ,,paint,, well with words. Her examples are always interesting and illustrate a point.
Also her pitch to my level of Spanish is most accurate. As a teacher she is dynamic, engaging and ..fun.
I know she values punctuality, and she has been most straightforward in her dealings with me (tuition fee, time and place, timing of lessons,etc).
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mercedes, she would be, in my opinion, a valuable addition to your team, as she has a mature outlook and takes her responsibilities in earnest. She is also pleasant and humorous, which surely cannot hurt.
Very engaging lessons and a most pleasant teacher
A great tutor
Merchy has been teaching me Spanish for the last couple of years. She´s just a great teacher. She always makes the lessons interesting and has really useful resources and never tires of my endless questions. She´s very patient and calm and helps you to learn at a good pace that ensures your learning is consolidated. Muy bien!!!
After 2 years of Spanish with Merchy I can now read Spanish chapter books and have conversation.
Merchy's classes were fantastic, I learned loads in a fun and dynamic classroom environment. I highly recommend her.
I refreshed my Spanish before going travelling in south America
Personal Reference for Mercedes Groba
I am very pleased to write a reference for Mercedes Groba.
I started working with Mercedes personally a month ago for Spanish/English conversation exchange to help me improve my spoken Spanish.
I have found Mercedes to be personable and enthusiastic, with a great sense of humour. She is a pleasure to work with.
She also has an impressive range of academic qualifications and skills so I feel privileged to be working with someone of her calibre.
Furthermore, I have found her to be reliable and professional at all times.
I am growing in confidence with my spoken Spanish and this has motivated me to continue my studies in this language.
I highly recommend Merchy as a candidate for a teaching position. Merchy has a wonderful rapport with my son Charlie, which she has been with for 12 months now, his school grades have improved. Her main strength has been the ability to motivate our son. Merchy is extremely organised and reliable and with a very positive attitude. I recommend Merchy to you without reservation. Merchy’s professionalism, always surprised us on how versatile she is, she is tutoring Charlie in maths, spanish, history, technology and science. Merchy she is warm, creative, generous, fun, very patient and able to create an atmosphere where it feels safe and relaxing for our son to learn.
It is a privilege to recommend her to others.

Reference for Merchy G
Merchy has been helping my 13 year old son with Maths for the past few months. She is always punctual and very professional. She has excellent communication skills both in English and in Spanish. She is truly interested and dedicated to helping my son improve in Maths by explaining the lesson and making it interesting and relevant for him.
My son has gone onto pass previously failed exams and is now enjoying and understanding Maths a lot more, thanks to Merchy. We will definitely ask Merchy to come back to us after the Summer holidays
