Who are we?

We are Claire Duque Killeen and Maria Asensio Soler, both native Spanish speakers , Claire from Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela and Maria from Barcelona, Spain. We are both long term residents of Portmarnock.

Claire has a degree in Primary School Education from Venezuela and has extensive experience in teaching, having taught primary school students for seven years in Venezuela prior to securing a part time position with the local Creches teaching Spanish to the crèche students and providing after school Spanish courses also.

Maria is fluent in Catalan, Spanish and English, she is a qualified accountant by profession, has experience teaching children Spanish when she worked as an aupair and also to friends and family members locally. She has provided Ballet lessons to classes of children up to 12 years old over a period of 4 years prior to coming to Ireland so is very familiar with the challenges and the positive benefits of managing such classes. Has also recently completed an ELE course (Spanish as a Foreign Language)

We both love teaching and are passionate about developing our students knowledge and skills in Spanish and love of Spanish culture. Our goal is to give you the confidence to use the language either on holidays, school or in a professional capacity later in life. We have been running the School since September 2013, and it has been a great success.
