SPANISH GCSE & SPANISH A LEVEL TUITION REVEIWS

This is obvious for me, as she taught me to enjoy learning rather than see it as a stress. Thanks to her I now put that extra ounce of effort into my Spanish GCSE work at school because I want to; not because I have to. These Spanish lessons with SLS have improved my fluency and my ability to channel my ideas in a clear, concise way whilst also demonstrating a breadth of knowledge of grammar and advanced vocabulary.

Always asking me what I wanted to practice and learn. Martha made it easy to understand grammar and I was never afraid to ask her a question." Tvishi Agarwal, GCSE student

Stacey M, (Rebecca's mum-A level student)
“My teacher, Martha, is very encouraging and clearly shows that they have a passion in teaching Spanish which helps as a student to enjoy the subject more. My teacher also makes it clear if I do not understand a concept, and also rather than spoon feeding me, like my school does at times, my teacher allows me to think for myself but also giving me assistance when needed. During and after the class I feel more confident in my Spanish lessons in school as I know that I have practiced my Spanish and I have learnt some new vocabulary or a different tense in Spanish. I feel that compared to school learning grammar is much better as it is one to one, rather than being in a class. I enjoy the classes as I can focus on my weak points and work on them. I would recommend SLS services to my friends who are also not as confident in Spanish as I am.”
Rafael Majid, GCSE student

SPANISH FREE TRIAL LESSONS FOR COMPANIES REVIEWS
"Martha Jesty is a brilliant Spanish teacher! She makes learning really fun and effortless, using music and rhythm to help you to get the language into your head effortlessly. This is nothing like the language teaching you had in school (unless you were very lucky!) – it is modern and truly interactive way to teach Spanish. In a short free Spanish introductory session she taught us how to ask for someone’s telephone number in Spanish- and understand the answer – as well as telling someone else our telephone number in Spanish. We ended up dancing to music as we practiced!"

It was so much fun and very educational at the same time. Very inspirational." Demelza Fry

She knows how to bring the best of a person! My recommendation goes to this lovely lady!

We had a meet to discuss certain things and she was so open, and I can imagine she takes this into her Spanish lessons; an open, free enjoyable approach!"

SPANISH FOR FAMILIES CLASSES REVIEWS
"Martha Jesty develops rapport well with my children -8 and 5- by being friendly and showing an interest in them. They enjoy the puppets, music part of session. It was good for the children to get items such as fruit / vegetables in the home as this helps engagement.
Martha’s knowledge of teaching methodology is very good and she is clear to myself as a parent about what is required to support my children with their ongoing learning.
I have been impressed as to how much could be learnt in 20 minutes and by continued practice at home. It is helpful to learn together as a family. We have all been using it functionally across the day and enjoying speaking another language. It is advantageous to learn together and being online is easy to access without the time spent travelling. Within term time we would not have had the opportunity to learn Spanish unless online, based on our previous routine. We would be happy to continue online learning but perhaps also having an opportunity to do face to face events now and again when this is possible. We appreciate Martha’s time to teach us some Spanish." Mrs Caroline Burns
