About Me

Hola a [email protected],

My name is Maria and I am a Spanish qualified teacher (I did my PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages at Bristol University) . I come from beautiful Valencia in Spain :) but I am based in Italy.

I started teaching in 2009 and I have taught in 5 different countries to many nationalities and age levels. I very much enjoy teaching languages and the cultural elements that this entails. I see myself as a teacher who delivers balanced and effective lessons, enabling students to thrive and perform to the highest standards.

I offer Spanish fun, rewarding one-to-one lessons. My teaching has a communicative approach combined with a good basis of explicit and implicit grammar. I offer conversation based lessons, beginner lessons, preparations for exams (iGCSE, A-levels, IB...) and challenging lessons for those who are already at an advanced level.

Get in touch if you have any questions or to book a trial lesson. I will be more than happy to assist.

Hasta pronto ;)

Maria
