A Spanish, English and Humanities tutor, I am an English Studies graduate, having completed my studies in Spain and England.
I am a diligent, ambitious administrative and education professional with over 10 years of experience working in fast-paced environments. I am trustworthy, ethical, discreet and confident and poised in interactions with individuals at all levels.
I am currently studying a MA in Comparative Literature at UCL.
As a private tutor in Spain, I created and implemented lesson plans for small groups of 6-8 students’ average in the basics of grammar & conversation (English and Spanish), at the same time working with high-school students facing difficulties with Mathematics and Science. I also helped to teach under-privileged students attending an after-school tutoring programme.
As a secondary school teacher in Sofia, Bulgaria, I developed English lesson plans in line with the national curriculum, and evaluated the students' academic and personal profiles on a monthly, quarterly and yearly basis to contact with parents and rest of the teaching staff.
I also acted as a teacher at a summer English camp in Madrid, Spain, for children aged 5 to 13 years old and effectively handled all aspects of planning curriculum and activities. I established and taught lessons on relevant children's books, poems, movies and themes to promote student interest.
We are really pleased with our Tutor Valentina. She has been fantastic helping my wife and I and also our children which she keeps their interest by making the lesson fun . We couldn’t of asked for anyone better and we are looking forward to each lesson. Valentina really takes her time and has patience with us which is great.
