My name is Barbara, I am Spanish and have been living in England since September 2005. I am 37 years old and I have been teaching both English and Spanish since I finished my A-levels. I have always enjoyed teaching, communicating and sharing my knowledge with other people. I have always found languages extremely interesting and I have been encouraged to study them. My experience as a private teacher and as a nurse has allowed me to develop my management and communication skills, both of them key to provide quality teaching. I have always had an excellent rapport with students and their parents in order to keep them informed about the lessons and possible issues. This should never interfere with the trusting relationship established between teacher and pupil. I have always had high expectations and encouraged my students to work at their best possible level.
