Julian Scott, Spanish Translation Service


“Ruth provided me 1:1 bespoke Spanish pronunciation training for a recorded music project I was preparing as well as developing my beginner’s Spanish. Her diligence and encouragement, as well as flexibility for accommodating my needs, led me to be very well prepared when I hit the runway in Argentina. I followed up this bespoke service by attending Ruth's evening classes (via HeadStart Spanish) and very much enjoyed learning with her in a classroom situation too.”

Anthony Mullen

“Ruth has taught us Spanish for a few years. Her lessons are always well prepared and pre-planned to our needs and ability. We have enjoyed learning Spanish at a pace that suits us.”

Jim and Catherine Bilsborough

“Ruth has been very helpful in making my visits to Spain very enjoyable. I am now able to understand sufficient Spanish to get by as a result of her tuition in a one-to-one weekly lesson. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Spanish.”

Paul Nesbitt

"Ruth's lessons are thoughtfully and well prepared. She conscientiously supports and gives much positive encouragement in the learning process. I particularly enjoyed the Conversation classes in the Summer - muchas gracias Ruth!"

Rosie Kenningham

"We have an excellent tutor in Ruth and her lessons are very enjoyable. I would never have dreamed before I joined the U3A that I would be conjugating Spanish verbs at my age!"

Robin Jones, U3A, Chiswell Green

"I had previously taken group lessons elsewhere and didn't make any progress. However switching to 1-2-1 lessons with Ruth took my Spanish to another level. She gave a lot of encouragement and the structure of her lessons enabled me to see the progress I was making. After a few months, I visited Spain and my Spanish friends were amazed at the improvement in my vocabulary and verb usage across the tenses. I would recommend Ruth to anyone looking to develop their Spanish in a friendly and motivating environment."

Danny Crowe

"I had tried private tutors and group lessons but it wasn't until I started having Spanish lessons with Ruth that I really enjoyed learning and my progress improved dramatically. I highly recommend Ruth to anyone wishing to learn Spanish. Sadly my lessons came to an end when I moved to the Midlands."

Tom Tomlinson

"Ruth provided Spanish tuition to our son for both IGCSE and Pre-U. Her preparation and tuition were excellent and we were extremely pleased. With Ruth's support, our son obtained an A* at IGCSE and a D1 at Pre-U (the highest possible grade, higher than an A* at A Level). We would unhesitatingly recommend her."
