"Hannah and Skye took my Son Joseph through a course of sessions up to and through his GCSE Spanish. I have to say the quality of the tutoring far exceeded our expectations, absolutely fantastic! As a typical 16 year old Joseph is selective with his praise however not so with you guys. We're keeping everything crossed for his grades, regardless, he will certainly do a lot better as a result of your teaching. Thank you!"

"We were absolutely delighted with HKSpanishtutoring. There is no question that our son's grade improved significantly as a result of the tutoring. The organisation is very professional as well as friendly. They take the time to understand where help is needed. I most certainly recommend them."

- Gordon A (parent)

"Hannah and Lisa are fantastic tutors. They were so knowledgeable about the course requirements, explained everything very clearly and patiently and gave my son confidence before his exam. We feel very lucky to have found them."

- Jane L (parent)

"Hannah has been amazing for our daughter. She has raised her confidence, made the lessons fun and importantly made her fall in love with the language again. Our daughters test results have dramatically improved and her school teacher has noticed how effortlessly she is now able to complete the tasks in class plus converse with a great accent! We have no doubt she will get a great grade when she takes her GCSE in June and she is now considering Spanish for A level - thank you Hannah!"

- Nicola B (parent)

"Hannah, both Simon and I have really benefited from the lessons we have had with you. You are a warm, engaging teacher who takes her profession seriously. You have been very client centred, responding to our needs and learning styles in the moment. Our lessons have all been interesting, challenging and fun. Your love of the language and passion to share your knowledge has inspired us to take our learning further than we might otherwise have done. I would, and have, recommended you to others wanting to learn Spanish. We will also be back for more lessons."

 

- Debbie S (adult learner)

"Hannah is a fabulous tutor and boosted my confidence with my speaking exam. She is such a friendly character and helped me to achieve the grades I wanted. Our hourly sessions every week really helped me to expand my knowledge and vocabulary in Spanish! Hannah helped me to love Spanish after struggling with the speaking aspect for many years. She was always so positively optimistic during our tutoring lessons and helped me go from a grade 5 to a grade 7 at GCSE. I would 100% recommend Hannah for tutoring lessons - her passion for the subject is never ending :)"

- Zoe F (GCSE student)

"The lovely Hannah helped to tutor me through my final year of my Spanish GCSE, without her I don't think I'd have passed. She is excellent at explaining language rules and coming up with memorable ways to remember the trickier verb conjugations. If you or your child are struggling with Spanish, definitely get in contact with her, she really is fab!"

- Ellie M (GCSE student)

"Hannah is such a fantastic teacher and was extremely welcoming and friendly on our first lesson and each since.
I knew basic Spanish to begin with but Hannah has helped me grow upon the things I already knew and had taught me so much already in the few lessons we have had.
She is always punctual for our online lessons during lockdown and amazingly well prepared, always knowing where we left off and letting me know what she is planning on doing in our lesson. She always checks with me to see if I have managed to look over and practiced our previous lesson but never puts pressure on me to do so or judges me for not and is always happy to go over our previous session if I need to or am unsure.
When going through the lesson she explains things very well and always checks before moving on that I have understood. Once explained she will give practice questions for me to do but will always offer support if I need it, but will try to help me answer it by giving hints instead of giving me the answer straight away, but will give me the answer with no disappointment or reluctantly if I am really stuck.
I really look forward to my lessons with Hannah and extremely excited to continue my learning with her."

- Georgina D (adult learner)

 

"I received tutoring from Hannah for my GCSE Spanish exams and it made such a difference for me, I honestly don’t think I would have passed without her help! She went through all the fundamentals with me and really focused and tailored her approach to my weakest points in the course, she made sure I understood everything. I felt very behind on the subject before and lost confidence but Hannah gave me the extra support I needed to get up to speed and made sure I felt confident with it. I highly recommend using Hannah, she is a fantastic teacher and made the biggest difference in improving my grade and my enjoyment in learning Spanish!"

- Lara B (GCSE student)

"Hannah is a wonderful tutor who thoroughly helped me and my brother through our GCSEs. Looked forward to lessons with Hannah and would definitely recommend."

- Poppy K (GCSE student)

"I've been self learning Spanish for around 14 months, and needed a professional person to guide me/ help me. And I've definitely found that person!! Hannah has a way of teaching which is fun and enjoyable, I really look forward to our "Zoom" time on a Monday morning. She has a habit of putting a key in a door and unlocking it for you, the light bulb is then switched on and a big smile comes over my face. I've learnt bits and pieces from the internet, but Hannah puts it all together, she is just like a linguistic chef! If you're thinking about learning Spanish, then I would definitely give Hannah a call, I haven't regretted it, and I don't think you will, thoroughly recommended and personally I think good value !!"

"What a lovely person! Hannah helped me to get started learning Spanish. I'm a mature student and I felt very comfortable from the start. It wasn't easy but the way Hannah teaches I began picking up words, sentences and stringing them together to form a little conversation. She's very accommodating and a great person to learn Spanish from, so full of enthusiasm first thing in the morning, a perfect way to start your day!! Would definitely recommend her!!"

- Ian N (adult learner)

"I am a student that has just finished my A-Level year and I have sessions with Hannah to practice my Spanish in preparation for university. Hannah has found news articles that stretch and challenge my vocabulary and grammatical skills, and also in testing my knowledge through debate. Through this, I feel that all of my skills in Spanish (i.e. speaking, listening, reading) have improved. She has also prepared me for university by giving me helpful advice on her experiences with the course. She is an excellent teacher, very approachable and friendly, and I cannot recommend her enough."

- Mollie M (A level student)

"Hannah was my tutor in the lead up to my Spanish GCSE. She is a very friendly and supportive tutor. I felt comfortable making mistakes during our sessions as she was good at giving feedback to help me improve. We had really fun lessons which kept me very motivated. All round great tutor!"

- Francesca A (GCSE student)

"Hannah was always attentive and supportive when tutoring me and my brother. She adapted her teaching styles to suit both of our needs and knew the syllabus for GCSE and A-level Spanish very well. I looked forward to the lessons and overall received two very good grades in Spanish, helping me with university applications."

- Niamh M (GCSE & A level student)

"Great Spanish tutor, my Spanish has improved so much after having lessons with her. Very helpful for GCSE Spanish."

- Gaya (GCSE student)

"Hannah is absolutely brilliant!!! I had a little bit of Spanish experience through using Duolingo and talking to a Spanish friend via google translate but wanted to know a bit more about the mechanics so that I could confidently put sentences together myself. In the first lesson, Hannah chatted to me a bit to find out my level and without me even realising, she was teaching me so much and I went away with some amazing tools to work with already! I love learning with Hannah, she is fun, friendly and her way of teaching is fantastic! Highly recommend and I can’t wait to learn more!"

- Lisa G (adult learner)

"I’ve been taking part in the HKSpanishtutoring adult group lessons over the past few months, I have found them really enjoyable & fun. Hannah creates lessons that are informative and easy to follow and has definitely helped build my confidence to be able to speak more Spanish for my upcoming holiday to Mallorca! I look forward to my Wednesday evening class each week! Thank you Hannah."

-Alice E (adult learner)

"I’ve so far had three months of lessons with Hannah, returning to and improving on the Spanish that I learned/remember from 10 years ago… its been a real pleasure having the classes and like most of the other reviews here the time flies by, the lessons are great fun, and I genuinely look forward to my lessons. With Hannah’s patience and support have noticed a huge difference in my language skills, I’m actually speaking Spanish and not the pigeon Spanish of 10 years ago… Thanks so much, and here’s to the next few months!"

- Niamh Q (GCSE student)

"Hannah has been teaching me Spanish for the past few months now! I came to her with some prior knowledge of random Spanish vocab and phrases from previous courses.

I’m so looking forward to continuing to work with Hannah to become a fluent Spanish speaker!"

"Hannah is a wonderful teacher who is excellent at teaching Spanish, at all levels. My daughter had to learn Spanish in under 2 years for GCSE. After struggling with lessons in school, we found Hannah. Hannah was quick to adapt her tutoring to cover fundamental gaps in my daughters knowledge of Spanish. And with Hannah’s friendly, positive & energetic approach, my daughter’s confidence grew and grew. She is now in a good place approaching GCSE this Summer and I’m sure she will do well. This would not have been possible without Hannah, we are ever so grateful and would heartily recommend her."

"I am a senior leader at an inner London school, and have been using HK Spanish Tutoring to support one of our Year 12 students with her A Level studies. The excellent tuition saw my student go from a U in her November Mock to a C in her March Mock - really excellent progress. At a time when our MFL department has had some staffing issues it has been wonderful to have a reliable and thoughtful tutor to support my hardworking student. She enjoys her weekly lessons very much. Thank you Hannah for facilitating such a wonderful service. I would recommend to anyone wishing to provide students with GCSE or A Level support."

- Elizabeth T (Professional client)

The results will be an added bonus, on top of you bringing back an enthusiasm and motivation for learning that I feared may have been lost. A huge thanks for all your help! Your encouragement has REALLY helped her mindset. When I first approached you I couldn’t have envisaged she’d be in this good a place compared to where she was."

My daughter was struggling but as she saw Hannah, her confidence grew week on week and she went into the exam with confidence and almost scored full marks in her listening and reading exams, with an A grade overall in the subject. Without Hannah's help and support this would not have been possible.

- Amber F (parent)

"Hannah taught my daughter when she had a crisis with her class teacher.

She gave my daughter the confidence to believe in her ability to understand and speak Spanish. I would highly recommend Hannah to anyone requiring support with Spanish."

-Katriona K (parent)

"I’ve been a student of Hannah Spargo for over 3 months and in that short time my understanding and use of Spanish has increased dramatically. I am a languages teacher already but as a novice in Spanish, I was keen to become as proficient as possible.
Thanks to Hannah’s enthusiasm and subject knowledge I have been able to make rapid progress. My confidence has not only increased but crucially my awareness of how language works is made clearer during every lesson. Hannah is an experienced tutor and she uses a range of strategies to promote learning. Within a short time, I was covering GCSE level grammar and reading tasks thanks to her expert guidance.
I am deeply appreciative of Hannah’s outstanding planning and teaching skills, she creates an excellent climate for learning within our tuition sessions. She is also a master at tailoring lessons to my individual needs and experience, which ensures that I always get the maximum benefit from my lessons with her. Her integrity, enthusiasm and excellent subject knowledge ensure that every lesson is enjoyable, meaningful and an absolute pleasure."

- Liz T (adult learner - teacher of MFL)

I would highly recommend her for both Spanish and English tutoring."

- Gemma T (TEFL client host)

"My daughter who is 7 has been working with Hannah for several weeks now with her Spanish. She has started to make such good progress and truly loves her sessions with Hannah.

I truly believe Hannah is an amazing teacher and I plan to carry on with her until GCSE's. A STAR all the way :)"
