Who I am
Are you planning a visit to a Spanish-speaking country and need to brush up on your Spanish? Perhaps you need to learn Spanish for career reasons? I’d be more than happy to help!
My name is Manuela Evans and I am a native teacher of Spanish language and literature by the University of Córdoba (Spain) where I obtained my teaching qualification (BA in Spanish Studies).
I offer Spanish lessons on a one-to-one basis or in small groups within the Nottinghamshire area. With 14 years of experience as a private tutor, I will strive to ensure that you gain a better understanding and a deeper appreciation of the Spanish language.
I have also worked as a Spanish lecturer and as a freelance interpreter and translator. I consider myself to be a reliable, confident and committed teacher with plenty of patience and empathy. For peace of mind, I hold QTS and also have a valid DBS
I am enjoying my lessons with Manuela. She is well prepared each week, and is very patient with me and my bumbling Spanish
Manuela is very lovely person. She is a great tutor: every week she has got very good materials for me and my husband to use, and she is very patient for us :-). I would recommend Manuela to anyone who is looking for a Spanish tutor (very good contact).
My daughter is really enjoying her Spanish lessons with Manuela and has even been re-inspired in the subject. She's come on leaps and bounds already (3 lessons in). Thank you so much, Manuela.

I can't recommend Manuela Spanish lessons enough! She's understanding of my learning speed and I feel like I improve every lesson. On top of that, she's puntual and she's got great humour! I'm making genuine progress and, thanks to Manuela, I'm really engaged with Spanish language.

Been having lessons for approx. 6 weeks love every minute of it Manuela is easy to learn from and I really enjoy our lessons nice to have a teacher who is Spanish and doesn't laugh at me every time I say the wrong word !

Manuela is very punctual and extremely patient. The lessons are well structured with a recap and review of homework from the previous session. The lessons are delivered in a very relaxed style with plenty of encouragement. The hour goes so quickly, but a lot is delivered to give a a good appreciation of the subject. Due to the delivery style, I am picking up the language and feeling much more confident than when I first started. Thank you Manuela.

Had a couple of lessons now (myself, husband and our daughter) and we are so impressed with Manuela. She is a fantastic tutor, very friendly and makes learning Spanish a lot easier than we thought. I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn or improve the Spanish language.

My daughter Morgan has really struggled with the transition from GCSE to A level Spanish and the 2 tutorials so far have given her a real boost and improved her confidence, Manuela is very pleasant and easy to get along with, her teaching methods are great and Morgan has understood everything shes taught and is making good progress I would highly recommend her for any other students

Manuela is a wonderful tutor, who has helped my wife and I improve our Spanish immeasurably. Our grammar, vocabulary and confidence has all come on in leaps and bounds. Manuela is friendly, patient & professional and we could not ask for a better teacher.

As a mature student, I have found that Manuela extremely patient, which is fortunate for me. She will constantly pick up on the finer grammatical details and is tireless to explain her subject. Her punctuality is second to none.
