“I love teaching Spanish as I get a great satisfaction seeing learners improving, achieving and progressing. Learning a second language as a native speaker I have experienced what it is like to be a language learner. Through my learning experiences I can help my learners’ build their confidence in the language and all aspects of learning. Teaching is my passion and I enjoy every minute of this lovely profession”.
