Hola a todos! I am a native Spanish speaker and I have lived in the UK for 15 years. I have taught Spanish in good & outstanding secondary schools in England and I have also tutored 1-1 and groups of adults. I studied English Philology in Spain and then I moved to the UK to study an MA in English Literature. I have also completed a postgraduate certificate in secondary education in MFL so I am a qualified teacher with 10 years of experience. I love learning about other cultures and languages, and I have previously studied Arabic, Japanese, German and French, which helps me understand the challenges that Spanish learners may face :) In my free time I love to go hiking and climbing!

This was my last lesson with Lara before going to Spain. I do not know where to begin. Never did I think I would have so much confidence and knowledge in Spanish until now, and I am forever grateful to Lara for helping me achieve this. I recall in my first lessons that I kept telling Lara that I was so nervous and did not know hardly anything. Now, Lara and I are able to have full conversations in Spanish, and I feel so much better. Lara is the best teacher you could ever have, and that is not an exaggeration. Thank you so much, Lara! I truly appreciate you.

I have completed a number of classes with Lara and cannot recommend her lessons enough. Lara is a consummate professional. Her classes, for which she is extremely well-prepared, are structured, challenging and rewarding in equal measure. Lara's years of experience in language teaching are clearly evident and she deftly incorporates conversational practice into clearly explained lessons focused on grammar. Moreover, Lara is friendly, open and encouraging and these qualities make the learning process very enjoyable.

I started learning Spanish with Lara 6 months ago, in preparation for my daughter's wedding to a Spaniard. I was able to give the speech in Spanish (without notes) and converse with the Spanish in-laws. I will be 70 in October and never imagined I would make so much progress. Lara has been fantastic. Some days I have not felt motivated at the start of the lesson but she is so enthusiastic that I feel inspired by the end of the lesson.

Lara is very patient and supportive, very helpful and understanding of how students learn differently. I would recommend anybody wanting to learn Spanish to give Lara a try.

My lesson with Lara was great. She made me feel very comfortable, was really engaged and I enjoyed our conversation. I’d highly recommend Lara for anyone seeking a Spanish tutor.
