I am a young, enthusiastic language teacher with two years of experience teaching at the college level and four years of living in Spain, both as a student and a teacher. During my year abroad in Sevilla, Spain, I developed a true passion for the Spanish language, people, and culture. I received my Master’s degree in Hispanic Studies from Boston College, where I was awarded a Teaching Fellowship and taught two sections of Elementary Spanish. I have taught English in Spain at the elementary school level, and I have tutored children, teenagers, and adults.

Study Skills and Organization

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

Part of learning a language is studying the culture. Listening to music or watching films and TV shows can be an excellent way to improve listening skills, and to engage in the language.

What is your teaching philosophy?

For me, language is meant to be lived, not just spoken, and my teaching philosophy reflects this belief. Vocabulary and grammar are contextualized through real examples and everyday situations. I consider culture to be an integral part of learning a language; in fact, they cannot be separated. I incorporate multimedia in my classes to enhance the learning experience of this facet. Many of my students have yet to master a foreign language, so I interweave study techniques into my lessons to support their success.
