Iciar installed such an enthusiasm
Iciar installed such an enthusiasm for Spanish in my daughter that she decided to continue the subject at A level having done so well at GCSE. An initial clash of subjects meant that she would miss the school lessons but Iciar agreed to carry on tutoring at A level and continued to do so right up to her exams.
She has really enjoyed each and every one of her sessions with Iciar and her love of the language has continued to grow to the point where she is now going on to study it at university. It has been a real joy to watch her master Spanish to the degree she has and I have no doubt that the friendly, structured way Iciar has delivered her tutoring has been key to her success and her continuing enjoyment of the language.
Iciar is the best Spanish
Iciar is the best Spanish teacher I have ever had! She has helped me tremendously in my GCSE exam! Her lessons are well-structured and I have learnt how to plan and structure the answers. We revise grammar and important vocabulary of every theme and do past papers as well as a range of similar exam questions. She also creates flashcards for every lesson that include vocabulary that I don’t know and it makes memorising vocab so much easier!
She is definitely one of the most patient and responsible teacher, I would highly recommend her! She is incredible!!!
Iciar is an amazing teacher – dedicated, patient, and thoughtful. My son, who has ADHD, did well in Spanish solely because of Iciar. A huge applause to Iciar’s efforts. I would recommend her highly!
I am so glad that I have found Iciar
I am so glad that I have found Iciar to teach me Spanish. I wanted to be able to help myself when walking the Camino Frances and have achieved the ability to do so in a few months. I’m not a good student, but Iciar is an excellent tutor with a lot of patience. The lessons are a combination grammar, listening, reading and talking and this helps you to review what you have learnt. I can absolutely recommend Howtounlockspanish as it is regularly updated and a good reference. Muchos gracias Iciar!!
Iciar started tutoring my son in y10 for GCSE, he found her lessons really useful and that they complimented his school lessons perfectly. The lessons gave him confidence and invaluable practice, especially with covid and lockdown, it was great that he had a chance to practice his speaking one on one every week, something that school was obviously not able to do during lockdown. Iciar was super helpful and flexible, allowing extra lessons just before exams etc. This was particularly useful for the speaking part. We were already really happy with the whole experience but when my son got a 9 in his GCSE’s this Summer we were even more pleased.
Iciar was an amazing tutor
Iciar was an amazing tutor for GCSE Spanish and helped me so much. She was really organised and always went above and beyond such as creating extra quizlets for me for new vocab every week and always being able to accommodate me with lesson times. I started tutoring with Iciar because I was not studying GCSE Spanish at school and so needed help learning the syllabus and preparing for the exam. I achieved a high grade 9 and am so grateful to iciar for her help.
I have been using howtounlockspanish
I have been using howtounlockspanish for some time to learn Spanish and am very pleased with my progress. Iciar manages to make the lessons a very good combination of learning and fun. She mixes the lessons up very well combining speaking, reading and listening. There is also a good combination of structured and more informal. She is very reliable and never misses a lesson.
I highly recommend anyone at any level to use howtounlockspanish. I started as a complete beginner and can now hold in depth conversations.
Iciar tutored me for three
Iciar tutored me for three years, and throughout this time there were no boring lessons. I’ve always received support from her and I could not have gotten my 9 in my GCSE’s without her. Contact is always amazing and she is incredibly understanding and helpful. Her lessons are so good, you might not be able to quit!
Great tutor, great GCSE result
My daughter had tutoring classes with Iciar for a couple of years to support her preparation to the GCSE in Spanish. I wanted a native Spanish speaker and all along I have been very happy with Iciar’s style and the way she worked with my daughter, which helped her achieve a 9! Iciar is a very dedicated teacher that went above and beyond to keep my daughter engaged and interested in the curriculum but also aware of the exam technique needed to succeed. She adapted the classes to her, gave her varied homework and was from the beginning very supportive and encouraging. She was always flexible and well predisposed and kept me updated on how she was progressing. I highly recommend Iciar, I found her an excellent Spanish tutor.
Professional and engaging tutoring! Helped

Well structured and enjoyable
After being tutored by Iciar for my GCSEs I decided to continue it at A-level. It was a big jump from GCSEs however Iciar’s sessions helped me hugely as they were well structured and planned out but also so enjoyable and interesting so much so that I looked forward to our weekly sessions. Iciar has helped me so much with both GCSE and A-level and has really made me enjoy Spanish to the point where I’ll be studying it at university!
Thank you Icíar!
Icíar is a wonderful teacher, I’ve improved a lot during the time span of only 6 months. Her tips are great and extremely helpful for my GCSEs, especially for writing and speaking. I would therefore really recommend Icíar if you’d like to improve your Spanish!
As I was taking my Spanish GCSE a year early, we decided to get a tutor in January 2023 (6 months before my exams). We found Iciar, who is an excellent tutor. She is encouraging, organised, supportive and most of all an excellent teacher. Iciar was always flexible, allowing me to have extra sessions when I needed more help, giving me many resources, including Quizlet’s after each session. Thanks to Iciar, I began to enjoy the subject even more, feeling much more confident and leading me to get a better grade than I thought I was capable of. Without her, I would not have done nearly as well as I did and I couldn’t recommend her enough.
I’m really pleasantly surprised with my IGCSE results and I got a 6 in spanish which I’m really happy with and did not expect, thank you so much for helping me with all of my Spanish last year, without our sessions there is no way I would have been able to get a six so THANK YOU.
Iciar was great. Always available
Iciar was great. Always available to help and extremely supportive. Was great to practice Spanish conversation with a native speaker something that couldn’t be done much at school.
One full Y11 in just a few months to achieve a 7 at GCSE’s
My daughter was taking a year earlier her Spanish GCSE exam and with all the lockdown and Covid stuff the school completely forgot about preparing her for that. I contacted Iciar at the beginning of Oct’20 with the hope she will help my daughter to acquire all the Y11 syllabus in a matter of a few months.
Iciar is very well organised, offering a variety of teaching methods and covering all sorts of topics. Her classes are interactive and there is homework and revision that needs to be done from home prior the new lesson so the learning is ongoing and sets what the lesson has provided.
So if you are up for the challenge and your child motivated, he/she will achieve great results and feel very accomplished, as my daughter was once she received 2 points higher her predicted grade!
Thank you very much Iciar for your dedication, hard work and always keeping the motivation – for all of us- going.
A Truly Exceptional Spanish Tutor!
Iciar has been tutoring me and my two children for the last two years and I am so very grateful to have found her (thank you, God!)! My daughter, Rosie, sat her Spanish GCSE two years early, in Y9, and achieved a Grade 9, with an amazing 235/240 marks! This is an absolute testament to the exceptionally high quality of Iciar’s teaching skills. She is incredibly patient and encouraging, whilst at the same time stretching every one of her students to help them reach their potential. The lessons are always fun and interesting, incorporating each of our interests. She breaks the grammar down into ways that are easy to understand and remember. She also has an incredible knowledge of exam technique with tips and tricks to help students get the top grades. Iciar always goes above and beyond. For example, in preparation for her oral, Rosie messaged her several times each day asking for advice, to which she always responded immediately!
Rosie hadn’t intended to take Spanish further than GCSE but, thanks to Iciar, it is now her favourite subject, and she has started on the A Level course! My son, Harry, will take his GCSE next summer, three years early, in Y8, again thanks to Iciar.
My own weekly lessons with her are such fun! It is a real pleasure to be able to chatter away in Spanish to someone who I consider a really good friend. Furthermore, she always finds me fascinating topics to study about Spain and Spanish-speaking countries. My language skills have improved no end!
On top of all this, I’m really grateful that she is so flexible with our schedule, adapting times if needed. Highly highly recommended!
Iciar has been teaching me Spanish for the last 18months. I highly recommend Iciar and her teaching. She makes learning Spanish a real pleasure.
Fun and Engaging Lessons
Iciar is extremely kind and helpful and never fails to adapt to your learning style to create a fun and engaging atmosphere. Before tutoring with Iciar I was predicted a 5 but with weekly interactive lessons I managed to achieve a 9. After every single lesson I left with a smile on my face and I felt extremely motivated to complete the work. Iciar is also very understanding and I would highly recommend her as a tutor to anybody of any ability
My daughter really enjoyed her weekly sessions and saw a marked improvement in her assessments
My daughter had tutoring with Iciar in the 10 months leading up to her GCSE’s in 2021. Her sessions with Iciar instilled a real enthusiasm for the subject and made her much more confident in her regular classes. She really enjoyed her weekly sessions and saw a marked improvement in her assessments over that period and in her final GCSE tests and result. Iciar provided a really well structured yet enjoyable approach to the language.
She hadn’t intended to pursue Spanish further after GCSE but has now decided she wants to do it as one of her A level choices. I couldn’t recommend “How to unlock Spanish” highly enough!
