Our main asset is our high quality teaching staff: Spanish or Latin American native speakers who are qualified, experienced and educated to at least degree level. We pride ourselves on the fact that all our teachers are qualified as CLTA (Certificate in Language Teaching to Adults), which is regarded as the highest qualification for teaching Spanish to adults.
My name is Irene and I’m from Madrid.
I’m totally passionate about teaching my language as well as all aspects of my culture.
I like to use a creative approach to the lessons, using different sources (video, audio, games, photos, etc) as besides being a graduate Spanish teacher, I also obtained a Bachelors Degree in Video and Communication.
I moved to the UK five years ago in search of adventure and became a CLTA qualified teacher to learn the new techniques in teaching Spanish to adults.
One of the most rewarding experiences as a teacher is to see the students enjoying themselves and leaving the classroom with a glowing sense of achievement.
I'm from Buenos Aires. I obtained my Certificate in Teaching Spanish to adults in 2008 and my Diploma in Teaching Children and Teenagers in 2009. Since then I've gained experience teaching Spanish in Sydney, Buenos Aires and Dresden (Germany).
I believe that learning about Spanish and Latin American cultures is as important as taking in the language itself. That is why I use real materials for my lessons (newspapers, excerpts of books and films, songs, etc) so my students experience a true cultural journey. I also think that learning a language shouldn't be boring or unpleasant but an enriching and fun activity.
My many teaching experiences have taught me to understand the different needs of students adapting to their pace and making them feel comfortable and relaxed during lessons. My favourite part of teaching is creating fun and laughter, making the lesson a fun social activity rather than a chore. What I like most about being a teacher is the satisfaction of seeing my students progress.
I hope to see you in class soon!
My name is Mariate and I come from the Canary Islands.
I have a passion for languages, their origins, and their relationship with the culture of each country. That’s why I studied Philology and an MA in Classics. I obtained my QTS working as a Spanish, Latin and Greek teacher for children, teenagers and adults. For the last 6 years I have prepared children for their GCSE and A-levels with great success, as well as helping adults prepare for their DELE and University Spanish-language exams. It is extremely rewarding to help my students excel in their tests!
With regards to my teaching style, I’m interested in new technologies, and I use them in my lessons as much as I can. I even keep a blog in which I present the use of new methods applied to the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language. But most importantly, I love creating a relaxed and fun atmosphere in my lessons. I believe humour is the best tool to learn!
I look forward to meeting you soon! ¡Hasta pronto!
My name is Luisa and I am from Bogotá, Colombia. I came to London 3 years ago to study a Master’s Degree in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching at Kingston University. While in London, I have also taken several diplomas to become a DELE examiner, which is the official certificate to prove your level of Spanish as a foreign language, and to teach grammar to learners of Spanish as a second language (Instituto Cervantes). Before moving to London, in Colombia, I obtained my degree in Spanish teaching methods at the Universidad Pedagogica Nacional in Bogotá and a certificate in Teaching Spanish to adult speakers of other languages in Instituto Caro y Cuervo (Bogota).
Some of my hobbies are cycling, reading and watching movies. I am very patient and I love teaching and learning, this is why I chose my profession, because every day is a learning process for my students and for me.
I’m Frank and I come from Lima, Peru. I’ve been a language teacher (English and Spanish) for almost ten years. I hold a teaching degree and a CELTA qualification. After doing a postgraduate diploma in Spanish language teaching, I decided to come to Europe for pastures new.
In 2014, I had the opportunity to live and work in Russia for a year as a teacher of Spanish and English. It was a very nice experience to live in a different country so far from home. Currently I am complementing my profession with a Masters Degree in Legal translation and Audio visual translation.
I love teaching Spanish both to children and adults, using games, art, music and other tools to engage students in the language learning experience. I'm creative, playful and enthusiastic in my lessons. Other things I’m interested in are films and literature, especially Latin American literature.
I am from Montevideo, Uruguay.
My passion for teaching my native language began in 2004 when I took a one-year long course in "Teaching Spanish to Speakers of
Other Languages" in Uruguay. I loved the subject so much that I decided to specialise by studing a 4-year long degree at the University of
Montevideo: "Spanish Teaching for secondary school level". When I finished my degree I received a grant from the Spanish Government to take
a Masters Degree in the Spanish Language at the University of La Coruña, Spain, in 2009, and an MA in Linguistics at the
University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain, in 2010.
Since then, I have been an MFL Spanish teacher in Spain, Uruguay and Poland. I have also participated as a speaker in several congresses organised by the Spanish Linguistic Society and I have written contributions for the Latinoamerican University of Social Studies.
My passion for teaching began in 2010 when I embarked on the adventure of volunteering in several educational projects in Madagascar. This amazing experience made me take the decision to become a Spanish teacher.
Back in Madrid I took a MA in Applied Linguistics and Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language, as well as different teacher training courses. I have also completed courses in technology for language learning, creative writing and the use of artistic expressions for education.
I have experience teaching Spanish at King's College and the Roahampton University in London, the Centro Hispano Americano and Asilim in Madrid, as well as testing teaching materials for the Spanish textbook publishing house "Difusion". I am also an official examiner for the Cervantes Institute's DELE exams.
But most importantly, I have a great passion for the Spanish language and culture!
¡Hola! I’m Victoria, and I’m from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I understand that everybody is different when it comes to learning a language - and having taught a broad range of people across all ages and walks of life - pride myself on adapting my teaching method to suit the learning style of each student. This is essential to ensure that learning is fun and enjoyable! As such, I have created many games, have discussions about topical news, and - as an art historian - have even given gallery tours for my students!
Above all, I help people get to grips with the ‘everyday’ Spanish language - ensuring that everything taught has complete relevance, whilst still sharing the context and culture behind what they are learning, whether Spanish from Spain, or other variations from around South America.
When I’m not teaching I enjoy travelling around Spain and Italy soaking up new experiences to pass on!
Hope to see you soon!
Hola, ¿que tal?
I am from the beautiful San Sebastian, a town in the North of Spain known for its amazing gastronomy.
I'm qualified to teach Spanish both by Instituto Cervantes (ELE) and by International House (CLTA). My 4 years experience teaching childen and adults has helped me develop a sense of imagination and creativity for the lessons.
I enjoy teaching Spanish using a communicative approach to the language, creating opportunities for the students to speak from the very beginning. I also believe that what you learn while having fun is never forgotten, therefore I tend to use games and playful activities in my classes.
See you in the classroom soon! Hasta pronto!
I am from Mexico City (Mexico).
I am a professional in communication with a MA in Journalism who has discovered in teaching a real passion. For me teaching Spanish is a way to share my knowledge and experience, and to contribute in reducing cultural gaps.
I have worked for two schools as a Spanish teacher in Mexico, dealing with teenagers and young adults helping them in improving he use of grammar and orthography, topics I am really into. I have also been a Spanish professor in the Faculty of Tourism (University of Toluca, Mexico).
I enjoy working in education because it is a great opportunity to spread enthusiasm for knowledge and to encourage people to open their minds to new experiences by having fun while learning. My other passions are writing (I have a postgrade in Creative Writing), cooking and blogging about traveling.
¡Hola! My name is Angela.
I was born and raised in Lima, Peru but I moved to the United States six years ago. Currently, I'm living in London and I’m studying an M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
I have a CELTA teaching qualification and a B.A. in Psychological Science and I have taught English and Spanish to children and adults, individually and in groups for some years. I have worked as a private teacher/tutor, teacher assistant, English and Spanish teacher, and preschool teacher.
As a language learner myself, I can really relate to the challenges students face when learning a new language. I know it may be difficult at the beginning and sometimes we do not have enough confidence to start communicating, but practice makes the master!
My name is Luciana and I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I love travelling. I have been living in London for 17 years and it all began with a trip!. When I first came to London I could hardly speak any English, so I know how a beginner feels on their first lesson.
I qualified to teach Spanish to adults at International House (CLTA). I like my classes to be engaging and communicative. I love to use games, songs and anything that will take the pressure so you can relax, have fun, and absorb new information. My favourite part of teaching is seeing how students manage to express their thoughts in a new language while having fun.
I am Course Coordinator at Spanish House London.
While finishing my degree in Law in Madrid I had the opportunity of tutoring American students from Georgetown University during their exchange year and that's how I discovered a passion for teaching my language! I obtained my CLTA qualification and after teaching Spanish to adults in Berlin and Paris, I moved to the UK and decided to set up a unique language school.
My experience at different academies taught me that learning is best achieved in a friendly and welcoming environment rather than a cold and impersonal classroom.
I wanted to create a learning experience which took a fun approach to Spanish classes and where socializing is as important as the lesson itself. I believe we have achieved that but come and see for yourself!
I'm Ally Vitale. I'm from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I graduated from the University of Florida in 2013 with degrees in Psychology and Spanish.
After spending an abroad semester in Seville, Spain, I returned after graduation to Vigo, Spain, where I was an English Language and Culture Assistant at a primary school. I am now attending the University of Roehampton to pursue a Master of Arts in Specialised and Audiovisual Translation.
I'll be around to help keep things organised and running smoothly. Feel free to drop me an e-mail with any questions/comments on email@example.com or visit me at the Spanish conversation evenings so that we can discuss our Spanish language learning journeys together!
