I am a native Spanish speaker who is keen to introduce others to my language, culture and traditions.
I have a teaching diploma from Cervantes Institute and I have also a degree in Building Architectural Engineering. Such a weird combination, isn't it?
I have over 3 years experience teaching Spanish in a language school and one to one specialising in GCSE, A Levels (all major syllabuses) and simple ´holiday Spanish´for all ages.
I also have experience teaching younger children, helping them with their first introduction to Spanish.
My lessons tend to have many extra activities for having fun, as I believe the best way to learn is by enjoying your time, either for children or for adults. I am very creative which helps me explain the lessons in a very simple and easy way even when the subject is complicated.
For GCSE and A level learners, I provide a range of exercises so they can practice all the different skills for the exams.
For students who are going to Spain for summer holidays, the learning is based on topics such as going shopping, going to restaurants, asking for directions etc.
I also offer a program based on vocabulary and grammar to aid conversation for those who want to learn the more formal rules of the language.
It's only my sons second lesson ,however I am very impressed on how much my son is enjoying learning a different language.Patricia is very friendly and enthusiastic and put my son at ease straight away .I would recommend the lessons to anyone.
