Hola, I'm Drew
I’m an online Spanish Tutor and I help GCSE exam students boost their results!
(Languages are totally my thing)
My GCSE students consistently achieve 9-7 Grades. Those that carry on to A levels also get into their top choice universities:
But here's the thing: the Spanish GCSE exam is more challenging than ever and recent events have left some students uncertain about their progress and results
Can you relate:
- Are you struggling to adapt to the 'new normal' and not getting as many contact hours with your Spanish teacher?
- Are you falling behind and have knowledge gaps you need to fill?
- Do you need to maintain your grade until you return to school (whenever that may be?!)
- Do you need extra support with online classes?
- Are you homeschooled or taking Spanish as a private candidate and need extra support right now?
- Are you bogged down with loads of handouts, booklets and vocab lists?
- Do you feel like you're always playing catch-up?
- 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 exam? Or just need extra speaking practice?
- Do you need help with expanding your sentences and ideas for your syllabus topics?
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 later set up The Spanish Academy teaching students Spanish. I’ve worked with Google, 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 students who were stuck with their Spanish GCSE 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 Grades 9-7.
But I was tutoring 60+ hours a week and couldn’t keep up with the demand. So, I decided to launch weekly Zoom GCSE classes to help more students 🙌🏼
