About me

Hello! My name is Beatriz and I was born in sunny Spain, Andalucía! I come from the capital city where Hercules erected the Pillars of Hercules on his way to fetch the Cattle of Geryon (Cádiz). I studied Tourism and Languages and specialised in English and German, then I moved to London twenty-two years ago where I have worked in various fields such as education, hospitality, travel, market intelligence, and coaching. I also lived in Germany for 2 years back in the years 2000 and 2001.

I love reading (I think I may be a book addict...), teaching, travelling and meeting with my friends for a good laugh whether in London or in Spain!

Qualifications & Experience

In addition to my Tourism and Languages (English and German) degree from the High School of Tourism, I am a qualified TEFL Level 5 teacher with a C2 Proficiency certificate from Cambridge University, and have been teaching English online and on site to adults, children and small teams for over 4 years now.

I also have experience helping students with their exam preparation for levels B1, B2, C1 and C2. I have a Bacherlor's degree in Latin, Greek, Art History and Literature. I also graduated as a translator EN>SP at the University of Westminster in London in 2004, I certified as an advanced coach (ACSTH) by the International Coaching Federation in 2014, and I am an Emotional Intelligence Practitioner (SEI) by Six Seconds, The EQ Network (2013).

My professional experience and skills allow me to create a powerful learning experience for students and I personally love teaching languages. I currently work as a freelance English and Spanish teacher in London, teaching private clients and small management and sales teams in big organisations.
