About the Tutor:

As a passionate tutor who has been teaching Spanish for over 20 years from Beginners to Advanced levels, I started with SGSCC in 2001 teaching the “Spanish for Travellers” course, designing the entire course from scratch. Next, I was asked to develop the curriculum for “The Importance of the Spanish Culture in the World” which was also offered by SGSCC within the Seniors Program in 2017. In 2012, I also received the “Most Outstanding Teacher Award” from SGSCC, cementing my love of teaching at the College.
In 2014 I published my “Spanish for Travellers” book and a CD containing the most important topics of the Spanish grammar, vocabulary and dialogues for different contexts. All students receive this package at the start of the Spanish for Travellers course.
Teaching classes at all levels of Spanish, I am proud of my loyal student base with many re-enrolling in the Spanish course’s term after term, year after year." Lourdes

“Teaching Spanish with SGSCC for more than 25 years I have enjoyed the variety of classes on offer and levels of learning that have been available throughout my time. I look forward to meeting new students and teaching into the future with SGSCC.” Josie
