I have always loved Spain and the Spanish language since I was a child, due to the climate, the culture and the Spanish way of life.

I have been fortunate to holiday, live and work in Spain for a number of years. Holidays were spent mainly on the beautiful island of Menorca.

I worked in Barcelona and Mallorca at Language schools teaching Spanish for 5 years.  With my TEFL certification I was also able to teach English as a Foreign language (EFL) to children and adults from beginners to intermediate level.

After studying at Zaragoza University as part of my BA Honours degree in Spanish, I returned to the UK where I used my Spanish skills at Iberia Spanish Airlines and also at IBM on their Spanish Technical helpdesk.

After taking up the offer of redundancy at BT after 15 years of service, I was in a fortunate position to set up my own Tutoring business “VKTutoring” in Hale, teaching both English to Foreign students and also Spanish.

I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, whether students need help to pass an exam or they just want to pick up a few phrases for their holiday. I work with students to help them improve both their written and verbal Spanish or English (EFL).

I have a current DBS Certificate and specialise in Spanish GCSE exam preparation having taught students from the local area, including:

St Ambrose

Loreto Grammar School

Altrincham Grammar school for Girls

Manchester Grammar School for Boys

Withington Girls’ School

I have received some lovely testimonials from students who have moved to Spain happy with the level they have attained in Spanish. I have also helped GCSE and AS level students achieve the grades they wanted – normally an A*

My recommendation for GCSE students is to learn their grammar and vocabulary at a steady pace in the years leading up to their important exams, rather than cramming towards the end of year 11.

I ensure all my classes whether they are beginners classes or exam preparation, are tailored to the individual’s needs.  I tutor in a friendly and informal environment to a speed and programme that suits each individual.
