Hola, I'm Drew
I’m an online Spanish Tutor and I help GCSE & A level exam students boost their results!
(Languages are totally my thing)
My students consistently achieve A*-B grades and get into their top choice universities
Can you relate:
- Are you not getting as many contact hours with your teacher?
- Do you need extra support with online classes?
- Are you falling behind and have knowledge gaps you need to fill?
- Will you end up resitting your Spanish A level exam or appeal your result?
- Are you homeschooled or taking Spanish as a private candidate and need extra help right now?
- Do you feel overwhelmed with how to use complex grammar structures and verb tenses?
- Are you struggling with your listening, don't understand the accents and can't keep up with the speed?
- Are you nervous about your oral stimulus cards and the Independent Research Project?
- Do you need help with expanding your sentences and ideas (even in English)?
- Are you struggling to remember all the content, facts and ﬁgures, for the syllabus themes?
When I moved to London from Tanzania, I was 6 years old and English wasn’t my ﬁrst language. 5 years later, I’d won a scholarship to an independent school and was speaking 5 languages.
I was accepted into Cardiff University to study European Studies and Spanish, my ﬁrst choice. Within a week of graduating with a BA (Hons) Degree, I competed against 250 applicants for an Analyst position at a global bank in the City of London. I got the job only because I spoke languages (not because I had a clue about finance). Languages are an asset!
I set up The Spanish Academy teaching students Spanish (we then rebranded). I’ve worked with Google, HBO, the BBC, Premiership Football Clubs, Pinewood TV Studios, NHS, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and FTSE 100 companies. In 2019 my company rebranded and became My Language Lab, bringing language learning online. My focus as the Founder is helping shape the future of all my students!
Now, more than ever before, my students are coming to me with the same problems...
... term after term
✅ I’ve tutored hundreds of private students who were stuck with their Spanish A level exam revision and needed extra support.
✅ I taught them my own proven techniques that they didn’t always study in school. I showed them how to apply these methods to each and every individual exam question so that they knew what the examiner expected from them.
✅ End result? I taught them how to up-level their standard of Spanish and access higher marks. My students consistently achieve A*-B grades. But I was tutoring 60+ hours a week and couldn’t keep up with the demand. So, I decided to launch my Spanish A level tutorial membership to help more students 🙌🏼
