Yaiza Hernandez - Private Tutor in Central London
I graduated from the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain (my hometown) in 2014 with a degree in Modern Languages and Literature, specialising in French, Spanish, and English. After that I moved to France where I graduated with a Masters Degree in Translation from the University of Angers. Following this I started a PhD in French Linguistics applied to the teaching of French as a foreign language at the Complutense University of Madrid. Over the past three years I have had the good fortune of teaching students of many different nationalities, at university level in various institutions in France including the University of Angers, L’UCO (L’Université Catholique de L’Ouest) and the Ecole Supérieure des Sciences Commerciales d'Angers (ESSCA) which offers programs all over the world in Paris, Shangai and Budapest.
I have also served as an official examiner for the Cervantes Institute, and have experience in preparing, organising and supervising their Official Spanish Diploma exams. As part of my PhD I am conducting research in French and Spanish linguistics, collaborating as a member of the prestigious Spanish research laboratory “PAREFRAS”. Currently I live in London and work at a school preparing GCSE and A Level students for their French and Spanish exams.

My Approach to Tutoring
I believe when you are passionate about something you don’t mind spending time learning. You enjoy it so much you lose all track of time. This is my aim with my students - to transmit my own passion for Spanish Language and Culture, and to help them make progress and reach their full potential.
Fun Facts About Me
Outside of tutoring my interests are linguistics, languages, travelling and theatre, and you may find me speaking at seminars about linguistics or taking part in local productions.
