Vanesa Guzman

Hola Citylit explorers :-) My name is Vanesa, originally from Madrid, Spain, and I have been living as well as teaching Spanish and delivering cultural courses in London for the last 15 years. I am passionate about languages, culture, history, and art, which are topics that I have integrated into my lessons to raise cultural awareness. Back in Madrid, I completed my Degree in Journalism, and since then I have collaborated with different media on cultural topics. After my degree, I did a Masters in Spanish Language and Literature Teaching, which enabled me to obtain my Teacher Status in England and to start teaching in 2008. During these years, I have been delivering language and culture content courses to adult groups and private students of all levels and cultural backgrounds, in diverse working environments (language schools, companies, charities...). This experience has offered me the opportunity to develop material, techniques, and my own teaching style. I also did a Masters in Intercultural Communication which contributed to my understanding of cultural differences; an aspect that I apply to my teaching.

Please note: We reserve the right to change our tutors from those advertised. This happens rarely, but if it does, we are unable to refund fees due to this. Our tutors may have different teaching styles; however we guarantee a consistent quality of teaching in all our courses.
