LUCÍA BALSA PASCUA
Lucía’s studies in Madrid have been focused on the field of education, specifically in language and technology. Lucía completed a Bachelors Degree in Primary Education at Universidad Pontificia de Comillas in Madrid and she has also completed a specialist training course in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.
Lucía’s qualifications and experience led her to become a trainee teacher in Madrid in various different school settings and also with children who have disabilities. Prior to tutoring for us, Lucía taught private students of all ages and abilities, including Beginners Spanish, Children’s Spanish and students preparing for Spanish exams.
“My classes with Lucía have been amazing and have given me so much more confidence before I start studying Spanish at the University of Cambridge. The lessons flew by as we discussed a whole host of topics, picking up useful vocabulary along the way, and all of my mistakes were noted and explained. All of the resources used were stimulating and modern. The result of all this is that my Spanish has improved dramatically, and I feel confident expressing my views. I will miss Lucia dreadfully as she is such a wonderful teacher and a truly lovely person, and could not recommend her lessons highly enough.”
Lucia made me feel very welcome and always had a smile on her face. She tailored the classes to my needs and requests, and was flexible if I was a few minute late. She was patient and pleasure to spend and hours just talking Spanish! She spoke in Spanish wherever possible and even tried to explain the grammar in Spanish too! I liked this. Lucia commented that I had become more fluent and confident in my conversation, and I believe I am! I would have no hesitation in recommending Lucia to my friends and colleagues.
