My name is Carolina Portillo Costa. I graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor Degree in Communication and Mass Media studies. I am also a Spanish writer and journalist who graduated in 2013 with a Master Degree in teaching Spanish as a foreign language from the University of Alcalá de Henares, Spain.
I am passionate about teaching Spanish and have always enjoyed interacting with people, from different backgrounds, who love learning languages. Being confident and hardworking enables me to offer outstanding lessons that are fun and easy to remember.
I am an experienced traveller. In the last fifteen years I have visited and worked in many countries. I left Buenos Aires, my hometown in Argentina and moved to Madrid to work as a journalist in the Channel of Antenna 3 International. Following this, I moved to Greece where I taught Spanish. These experiences have been enriching and an eye opener. Their benefits are channelled into my teaching for the general good of the learners.
I come from a multicultural family drawing roots from Spain, Brazil and Argentina and I have always loved languages.
I moved to London in 2014 where I worked enthusiastically in a Secondary school in the languages department, preparing the students for the A levels and GSCE exams. I have also worked in after school clubs for kids in different schools as a Spanish teacher.
At present I am working as Spanish Teacher for adults, GCSEs tutoring and business groups in different companies in London. My experiences so far have been positive and enjoyable. I am looking forward to widening my circle of students and hope to have the pleasure of meeting you in my classes sometime soon. Hasta pronto!
