Master your Spanish with me! As a college graduate from a Spanish speaking country who has lived in both the highly rural and urbanized areas, as well as dealt with many different types of cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds, I will be able to help you understand the tone, word choice and other techniques that you can use to better communicate in the language. I as a native speaker will make it easier than most ESL classes for you to translate Spanish to English to Spanish. I have ten years of experience as a professional translator, and I have developed a process to teach you how to immerse yourself in the language.

What is your teaching philosophy?

Learning a language is something that needs to be processed, not memorized. You will learn more with a live person in front of you than a book or audio program on your computer

Find out what the student need help with or what he is lacking and how I can help him to achieve his goal.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Develop communication that includes language focused on learning. Encourage students to be reflective. Give students a sense of control. Give students responsibility. Earn students interests.
