About GILES

I am a Brit (!), a former 4 year resident of Spain and an enthusiastic Spanish speaking teaching professional with 13+ years' classroom experience. I am, and for the last 3+ years have been, a High School and Elementary School faculty member in Mount Vernon, Washington, teaching Spanish to grades K-5 and 10-12.

In additional to my current role, my language teaching experience includes 2+ years teaching English as a Foreign Language / English to Speakers of Other Languages at international schools on the south coast of England, and 3 years in southern Spain teaching English as a Foreign Language. I also spent 5 years teaching the UK equivalent of the Bar Course at University level in the UK.

I hold a 4-year Bachelors Degree in Spanish and Linguistics from the University of Essex, UK , during which time I spent 1 year at the Universidad de Murcia, Spain, studying Spanish and Applied Linguistics. My undergraduate studies also covered the foundations of linguistics, child language acquisition, second language acquisition and the linguistics of Spanish. I hold a Cambridge RSA Certification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from St. Giles College in Brighton, UK, and a Postgraduate Certification in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (Masters level), a Postgraduate Diploma in Law (Masters level) and a Postgraduate Certification in Professional Legal Practice (Bar Exam equivalent), all from the University of Wolverhampton, UK. I am also a fully qualified UK attorney with 6 years' experience in legal practice. I have a wealth of experience with complex documentation to meet all your proofreading and document drafting needs.

I have taught all ages, from 5 to 70 years old, and all sizes of groups, from one-to-one tuition, to lectures with audiences of 200+. My rates can be adjusted depending on the size of the group. I am happy to develop methods and materials to suit any individual or group, provide recommended materials or use any prescribed material that the student prefers. I will do all I can to help you achieve your learning goals and beyond. I look forward to hearing from you!
