About Me

About Me

My name is Marga and I am a fully qualified native teacher of Spanish. I am from a very small town in Albacete, in the South East of Spain. I currently live in Valencia after spending 9 years living in Manchester, England. 

After completing my English degree (Licenciada en Filología Inglesa) in Universidad de Murcia in Spain, I moved to England. There I obtained a certificate for teaching Spanish as a foreign language in the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester. After that I completed the PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) programme in Modern Foreign Languages (Spanish and German) at Manchester Metropolitan University and I obtained my Qualified Teacher Status.

My Teaching Experience

During 8 years I worked in a variety of schools around the Manchester area teaching Spanish and German, spending the last 6 years working in one of the top independent schools in the country. I was in charge of GCSE and A Level classes and I worked very hard to maintain the school’s high standards for outstanding exam results.

Since moving back to Spain I have been working as an online tutor and I work with students of all levels and ages. In the past few years I have obtained great experience preparing students for the DELE and SIELE exams.

My Teaching Philosophy

I am very passionate about teaching and about my language and my culture and that comes across in my lessons. As a language learner myself I fully understand the difficulties we encounter when learning a new language. Each student has different needs and that is why I tailor my lessons to suit you. My lesson planning is thorough and it will reflect your requirements.

In my lessons I provide a variety of interactive, fun-learning opportunities, as well as clear structures which maintain pace and motivation. You also get access to a vast array of materials to keep on practising in your own time.

Whether you are a complete beginner, you want to improve your level, prepare for an exam or just practise your conversational skills, I can provide the right lesson for you.

My Hobbies

Travelling is one of my passions. I have visited over 15 countries and I am always planning my next trip. I am a keen skier and I love going for walks along the beach. I always enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends.
