Expert in-house tutors
We foster excellent relationships between our Spanish tutors and they are a valuable part of our team. The majority of our tutors work for us part-time rather than being ‘agency tutors’ and stay with us on a long-term basis. They are committed to ensuring students achieve their learning goals.
Our native (and non-native) tutors are minimum degree-educated, speak Advanced English and are personable. They’re multi-lingual and well-travelled which ensures their classes are consistently engaging.
Specialists in one-to-one tuition
Since we established 17 years ago, our primary focus has been on one-to-one Spanish classes. Our students achieve their goals quicker with classes personalised to their pace and requirements.
Flexible, tailored learning
We offer students a choice of learning venues, including modern premises in city centre locations as well as flexible times to accommodate students’ needs. We also encourage students to have a free assessment lesson. And we pride ourselves on our quick response rate – we’re available 8am – 8pm every day.
