Hugely experienced and enthusiastic Spanish teacher

£40 per hour

I I am originally from Spain and have been teaching Spanish and ESOL in London since 2002. I have worked, and still do, in Primary and Secondary schools in the South East area, along with Adult Education in colleges and Corporate training, with a great rate of student retention and satisfaction. Before I came to London I taught in Boston, USA, for 5 years.

I have also taught ESOL courses in preparation for the Cambridge examinations.

My approach to teaching is a direct and interactive one so that all students´ needs are addressed and they can speak in the target language during the activities.

I have a 100% pass rate in GCSE and A Level qualifications.

Suitability for tutoring
I have found Gemma Bastida to be extremely professional and has transformed my Spanish. I would recommend her to any individual or group as she is an extremely able and approachable "profesora". Alan Hunt

Suitability for tutoring
I have known Gemma for many years. From being colleagues to her tutoring my daughter in A level Spanish, I have always found her to be reliable and professional, as well as being an excellent tutor. Her subject knowledge is outstanding as is her knowledge of the exam system; she certainly knows how to push each learner to reach their potential and has some excellent results to her credit. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her for a position at your company.
