If you want to become fluent in French, Spanish or English, what you really need is a great tutor.

Read what students have said about language coach, tutor (and Member of the Institute of Linguists!) Karen Montanaro…

We would not hesitate recommending Karen…

“After only two lessons we feel comfortable and relaxed in Karen’s company.

The lessons are fun and interactive, we leave feeling we have learned and progressed in our understanding.

We would not hesitate recommending Karen to anybody, young or old.

For the first time we feel we really could master the Spanish language.

Thank you Karen.”

I now feel more confident starting a conversation…

“I would just like to take this opportunity, at the end of our second term of Spanish, to thank you for all of the patience and expert knowledge that you have passed on to me during the two terms that I have been studying Spanish.

Although we have just scratched the surface of the language, I now feel more confident in at least starting a conversation and ordering food and goods whilst holidaying in Spain.

Your lessons have given me the confidence to “have a go”, whereas in the past I would have been reluctant to try.

You have a friendly style that makes the lesson easy and, when mistakes are made, your pupils do not feel embarrassed or silly. In fact we have had some really fun moments, with my directional expertise or rather lack of it!

I particularly enjoyed the games that you introduced to the lessons occasionally – they made the language easier to absorb. I would thoroughly recommend you as both a teacher in a classroom environment or in a private teaching capacity.

Muchas Gracias!”

Karen’s passion for language is inspiring…

“Hi Karen. See below what Daniel has written about your Spanish tuition:

My name is Daniel and I am home-educated. I was very keen to learn a language so a friend recommended Karen to me.

I am learning Spanish and love the way Karen incorporates games into her teaching which makes the lesson fun.

Karen is very relaxed and encourages me to speak Spanish throughout the lesson. Her passion for the language is inspiring and infectious which definitely makes me want to do well.

(It’s how I feel too Karen!) M & D.”

"Karen is a lovely lady and structures each lesson to the way we wish to learn. It was nice to find out she has a fabulous discount for my husband and I learning together.

She is letting us choose the pace and providing sheets of the sessions for revision if we want to revise at home. Fab, fab, fab!"
