About Geri

I am a fully qualified teacher with more than 20 years of teaching experience in F.E. colleges, language schools and as a private tutor. For many years I was head of Law and later co-ordinator for Access to H.E. and Pre-Access programmes helping both teenagers and adults achieve success in their goals. More recently I spent eight years working in Spain and Argentina as an EFL teacher and examiner for major companies such as Coca-Cola, Vodafone and IKEA. I am fluent in Spanish and have tutored the subject to assist GCSE candidates, complete beginners and higher level students with their learning needs. As a native English speaker who has gone through the process of learning Spanish, I fully understand the difficulties that can be encountered and will be able to assist you with tips to overcome these challenges. Currently I teach English GCSE at a college as well as tutoring in Spanish and EFL. Whether it is exam skills, grammar, or speaking practice that you require assistance with, you will find that I am professional, friendly and patient. I use a variety of teaching methods and resources to accommodate different learning styles. Usually the classes are in my own home or online but I am willing to travel in some cases. I tutor individuals or small groups of up to five students of a similar level (discounts available). Please get in contact with me for further information or to discuss my availability. I look forward to hearing from you.

My Testimonials
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Antonio
I am Spanish and have been taking English grammar and conversation classes with Geri for the last three and a half years. Even now that I have moved to England we still continue. She suggests useful phrases and vocabulary to help me improve what I want to say and has extra grammar materials prepared when I need them. She is very patient and has assisted me very much to reach my goals. I recommend her.
Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Claire
I had a beginner level of Spanish when I started lessons with Geri. She has helped to build my confidence with my speaking skills and understanding of Spanish grammar. She explains grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation clearly, using examples to help. She is always prepared for lessons and uses materials that are easy to understand and appropriate for my needs. I would highly recommend Geri as a Spanish teacher.
