Liz helped me greatly with my A-Level Spanish, especially throughout the difficult environment of the pandemic, making lessons challenging but engaging despite being over Zoom. After studying with Liz for 11 years, I have been able to vastly improve my spoken Spanish in a way that is limited in larger classroom settings, and without her help I would not have done as well in Spanish as I did. Liz fosters a welcoming, encouraging atmosphere for learning, and has equipped me with tools for studying Spanish alongside History at university.

Lizzie has taught me for many many years, and has not only been an amazing teacher, but a kind, supportive friend. She helped me greatly to achieve a level 9 at GCSE, and has inspired me to study A Level Spanish too! I can now speak Spanish well because of her guidance, and cannot thank or recommend her enough!

Doing my Spanish A-Level during the pandemic was very challenging, however Liz remained fab throughout! My lessons moved on to Zoom, but they were still engaging with an immense variety of content. I think the lessons helped me to drastically improve my spoken Spanish. Liz's enthusiasm for Spanish is always evident and she has a fantastic bank of resources for students in and outside of the classroom. I'm now studying Spanish and Portuguese at university and I don't think this would be the case if I hadn't been to lessons with Liz. Her passion for everything Spanish has, without a doubt, been passed on to me and I'm very grateful for everything she has taught me and supported me with. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!

In the summer of 2018 I completed my A levels and received my best grade in Spanish. I have not doubt that I would not have done so well in my Spanish A level if it had not been for the support provided by Liz. Liz’s lessons provided me with the opportunity to practice and improve all aspects of my Spanish. After 10 years of lessons with Liz I am now confident that I can speak Spanish to a high level and I have acquired a skill which will stay with me for life.

I have been learning Spanish with Liz for 9 years on and off now and I received my GCSE results this summer. Thanks to the constant support that Liz has provided me with I managed to achieve the top grades in my overall Spanish grade. She has taken so much time to help me and so many other students perfect their knowledge and makes learning a new language extremely enjoyable. She has fuelled my interest in Spanish culture by incorporating songs and other interactive activities from when I was little. She is also very patient and understanding with her students and has taken the time to recommend resources to me that I can use to further my learning outside of the classroom that I would never have previously heard of. Whether you’re a complete beginner or looking for something more challenging I couldn’t recommend her enough. I can’t wait to carry on my Spanish skills into A level and hopefully beyond!

I’ve been learning Spanish with Liz for the past 9 years, and I’ve just recently completed my GCSEs. Not only did Liz help me prepare extremely well for my Spanish exams, she also made sure I was confident in all areas that I would be tested in. This meant that when I sat my exams, I was far less nervous than other students, and felt comfortable with sections such as the speaking exam, which can be quite daunting. Due to Liz’s fantastic teaching and the love of Spanish that I developed after years of learning, I received an 8 overall in my Spanish, which is the equivalent to an A* in old GCSEs. I would recommend Liz to anyone wanting to pursue Spanish lessons, and I’m incredibly excited to continue Spanish into A Level, both at school and with Liz.

I have been having lessons with Liz for around 8 years now. Having already had several years of practice before starting my GCSEs it was obvious that I had a huge head start over other people in my class, this also took a lot of pressure off me when I started my exams and meant that I could put more focus onto other subjects. After 8 years learning Spanish I now feel very confident in conversation, reading and listening and enjoy the sense of satisfaction when I am able to communicate in Spanish. Having lessons with Liz has made learning another language fun and easy and it is one of the most useful skills to have. Thanks Liz for all of your hard work and time over the years!

It has been a super experience over the last 6 months learning Spanish with Liz for a trip I am about to take. With such a short time I am amazed at how much we have covered. Liz has also concentrated on grammer rather than just teaching me useful phrases with no understanding of how the language is structured. She has been fantastic at adapting her teaching style to suit my learning style, I may be a 40 year old woman but love learning like the kids do, especially the singing!!! Liz has been more than just a teacher, with her support and encouragement and I am a happier person from the whole experience. Love you Liz. Jo xxx

I have been having lessons with Liz for three months now and have learned so much. She is a great teacher - friendly, patient and enthusiastic. The hour flies by. A great person to learn Spanish with. Muchas gracias!

My son Zac has been learning Spanish with Liz since he was 3, so about 4 years now. He looks forward to his lesson with his friend every week and has now increased his time to 45 minutes. To him it doesn't feel like a lesson. He just has fun whilst learning and he gets to see Liz, who is just a wonderful teacher and a fantastic person. The kids (and me) just adore her.

Liz was recommended to me by a friend to teach my 5 year old daughter Imogen. I could not have wished to meet a more friendly,approachable and professional teacher who my daughter loves dearly. She makes every lesson enjoyable making my daughter excited when she walks in and looking forward to the next lesson as she is leaving. One very special lady!

My daughter is 3 and has been coming to Liz for just under one year for Spanish lessons. What started out as a bit of an experiment on all our parts has become a brilliant part of our week! Matilda looks forward to her lessons, is able to count to 20 and name lots of animals and foods. Liz has a fantastic rapport with Matilda and is able to engage her in half an hour of learning which is based around songs and play. We will hopefully be coming for a long time to come!

Liz has an extremely magical way of bringing out the best in you without you realising how much you have learnt. It was a pleasure learning from her and I would recommend her without hesitation.

I used to hate learning spanish and was at one point on a grade E before I came to Liz around 20 weeks before my GCSE spanish exams and in some areas shot up to an A and got an overall grade B which was very unexpected (and surprisingly painless!). My lessons with her were very relaxed and made me enjoy and understand the subject in school and out much more. Thank you Liz!

Thank you for your help getting me through my GCSE Spanish exam . I could not have got the grade I achieved without your extra tuition. I particularly benefited from your help with my oral exam as well as understanding tenses

Liz is a fantastic spanish teacher. Liz taught me during my A Level Spanish course and gave me the confidence I needed in Spanish speaking. She helped me achieve grade A at A Level. She is friendly and helpful, making you feel comfortable and at ease. Muchas gracias Liz xxxx

I have been learning Spanish with Liz for nearly two years now. I am so pleased I found Liz to teach me. She is all you could wish for in a teacher, friendly, fun, supportive and very inspirational. I did not know any Spanish when I started and Liz has given me the confidence and courage to build my knowledge above and beyond the basics already. Not only has she been an amazing teaching but I have also a great friend too. I highly recommend her lessons, a comfortable and welcoming environment has made my experiences a lot more enjoyable than any group/ classroom would. Muchas gracias Liz xxxx
