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 Tutoring & Teaching Experience

I first started working with young students as an Spanish assistant in a Lycée in France with groups aged 14-17. Later, in Madrid, I was part of a teaching association which offered Spanish classes to foreign students. Afterwards, I taught at undergraduate level at the UCO (Université Catholique de l'Ouest), ESSCA (Business School), Angers Town hall and IUT (University of Angers). 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.

I have been teaching since the age of eighteen when I worked as a classroom assistant at Guildford High School for six months.

I recently studied Modern Languages & Management at undergraduate level at Cambridge, won the Eton College Spanish prize, earned top grades at GCSE, AS level & A Level and was awarded a Scholarship in Modern Languages in my 1st year at Cambridge. I have received a lot of tutoring along the way so am familiar with what works and what doesn't. From my experience, the best tutors make grammar, literary analysis & learning simple but also highly engaging. I enjoy teaching at all levels from GCSE to University Admissions and find it very satisfying to see my tutees progress and enjoy the sessions. I'm sociable, play a lot of sport in my free time and love to travel. Please do get in contact if you have any questions! ...
