Raquel prepared me for both my B2 and C1 Spanish. I cannot fault her preparation, delivery and patience in the classes. I learnt so much more with Raquel than I could have done alone, and such a lovely person. I cannot recommend her enough.

I found Raquel through a friend and she proved to be a fantastic tutor! She’s such a lovely person and extremely competent! I wouldn’t have achieved the marks I got in my degree without her and I look forward to maintaining my Spanish in the very near future.

Last year I completed a BA honours degree in French and Spanish. I could never have achieved this without the encouragement and excellent private tutoring from Raquel. I found Raquel’s details following a number of very positive recommendations from students. I have subsequently passed her details on to many other students, all of whom have expressed gratitude for the excellent referral.
I didn’t know a single word of Spanish when starting my degree and I quickly found the pace of learning overwhelming, whilst also working full time. Raquel always made me feel like I was making wonderful progress and she coached me and tutored me with unwavering patience. On our first lesson I really struggled to say more than a few words, but I soon found that I was talking for the whole hour with ease. I entered my degree hoping for a pass, I ended up with a 2:1, which really exceeded all my expectations. I could never have done it without the support from Raquel.

I have no hesitation in recommending Raquel for Spanish lessons. Since I started I have gone from barely able to string a sentence together to having a full conversation. Raquel is very encouraging and positive and she gives clear explanations. She is a lovely person and honestly most of the time it feels more like I am chatting with a friend in Spanish than having a lesson! She is also refreshingly flexible, I often ask to go over specific things I have been struggling to understand and she always accommodates this. She is supportive of me teaching my toddler Spanish and encourages her to come to the lessons and practice! I can’t imagine being tutored by anyone else.

I was studying for a degree in Spanish and although the tutors and online classes were great, I felt that there was not enough 'talking time' so I engaged a tutor. I was introduced to Raquel by another student and was really pleased to have a native teacher. I used Raquel pretty much every week, throughout the last 2 years of my degree. I got on really well with Raquel, from the beginning; she made sure I felt at ease and quickly figured out my level. Classes were not too easy nor too difficult but were challenging at times. We varied the classes with discussion on topical news and our own personal events and grammar sessions and revision. Closer to my exams Raquel worked really hard with me to ensure that I had more confidence and could face the examinations with ease! I have recommended Raquel to other friends and although I no longer need her help I am really happy to say Raquel is now a lovely friend of mine!

I used Raquel for help with my A' level Spanish. Classes were done over Skype and they were good. Raquel was really nice and easy to learn with, she was kind and helped a lot. We did grammar lessons and classes specific to the topics I was studying for A' level. I would highly recommend Raquel.
