About Me
italki teacher since Dec 3, 2021
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!

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.

I started with very very basic Spanish with Lara and our lessons are great. She's incredibly patient and organised in her approach to teaching. I've really appreciated how personal she makes each lesson feel.
