About me

My name is Alfred. I was born in Tarragona and now live in Spain. I have been teaching for more than 5 years and have been really lucky to have covered a whole variety of teaching within that time: children's groups, ELE to adult learners, private classes for primary and secondary school students and one to one adult lessons for exam preparation. I am also a literacy tutor.

Languages are definitely a passion of mine and I have learned English and Russian up to an Advanced level, this is something I have always loved and continue to do so.

My own language is something I find fascinating and intriguing. One thing I love about language is that there is ALWAYS something new to learn, even for fluent speakers.

I like to teach, using different resources, ensuring the classes are varied and interesting.
