Spanish Tuition

Spanish Classes for Adults

I give Spanish classes for adults online and with stringent Covid protection in person.

For my online Spanish classes I can use Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp.

This will depend upon your preference and which service works best with your Internet connection.

Spanish Classes Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire

As I am based between Aylesbury and Bicester and as such can offer in person classes within one- hour drive from my home.

I am very happy to travel to any location that is not too far.

At this time, I am offering Spanish classes in Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire.

This is a general guide.
For example, I offer Spanish tuition in Brackley which is part of Northamptonshire.

Typically, I teach Spanish in the following towns:

Beaconsfield, Amerhsam, Chesham, The Chalfonts, Aylesbury, Milton Keynes, Buckingham.

Oxford, Bicester, Banbury, Brackley

Berkhamsted, Tring, Hemel Hempstead, St. Albans.

Thus, whether you prefer in person or online we can discuss your specific interests.

Nothing is set in stone.

I have always enjoyed building my teaching around student interests.

How to meet and work together

You can travel to me or I can visit you.

Equally we can arrange a first meeting in somewhere like a coffee bar post Covid.

The first class is free.

This is because it is a first contact so that we can discuss what works best.

Words from my students

I can’t thank you enough.
As you know I had been struggling.
Now I feel so much more confident to speak real Spanish.
Anne B Aylesbury

Now I can indeed understand Spanish movies without sub titles.
Amazing!
Peter J Tring

Frequency of classes

The frequency of Spanish classes varies considerably.

Some of my students like one class per week but others find every two weeks more manageable.

In some cases, I work with Spanish learners who seek a very intensive course.

My experience teaching Spanish Classes for Adults

I qualified in Spain as a teacher of Spanish Language and Literature.

This was aimed at secondary school Spanish teaching. 

Nonetheless I also taught Spanish as a foreign language to adults.

In Britain I tried secondary school teaching. I found that I prefer teaching Spanish to adults.

Spanish classes in adult education

I have taught Spanish to adults for State Adult Learning.

These classes were in Milton Keynes, Aylesbury, Thame and Bicester.

I absolutely loved working with adult Spanish learners.

All of my class participants were highly motivated.
They were also relaxed happy people who enjoyed learning or improving their Spanish.

I developed my classes to help my students to gain the skills and confidence that were so important to them.

Now, I love providing private Spanish tuition.
