Sara "...My teaching style is very different to that of a typical classroom because I use concepts from science and math every day and understand how they are most easily applied and explained. I try however possible to enrich the learning students gain in the classroom with practical applications for the scientific world. My teaching of Spanish can also best be described as intuitive, as I am a native speaker and can think of ways to explain concepts in Spanish that are not described in textbooks or workbooks..."
