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!

Lara is an outstanding teacher and is always extremely well prepared. She has helped me immensely with my grammar and has provided me with great materials to review after the class. She is very professional and is also very kind. I feel lucky to have her as my Spanish teacher!

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 had a great lesson with Lara today. We talked about going on holiday, and it was very challenging but fun at the same time. I learned new vocabulary, and we found similar activities that we both enjoy talking about. After my lessons, I feel like I have improved my skills and learned a lot.

It was a good first lesson. Lara was really patient and gave me prompters where necessary. Really happy with the lesson.

Lara is so kind and patient. I forgot a lot of my Spanish that I learned in school, but she reassured me the whole time, gave me affirmations, and helped me when I struggled. I felt very cared for, and I came out of the lesson more confident and comfortable. Furthermore, Lara created personalized lesson plans with respect to what I want to focus on, so I feel as though she values my opinion in this educational journey, and I have something to look forward to now. There truly is no reason why you should not book lessons with her — she is incredible!
