¡Hola a todos!

I'm a native speaker of Spanish. I graduated from Stony Brook University with a B.A. in Spanish and Italian Language and Literature. I am now pursuing my PhD in Hispanic Literature at Stony Brook University.

I'm very passionate and driven in my field of study and seek for every opportunity to share my knowledge. I teach all levels of Spanish.
One of the biggest rewards of being a PhD student is teaching Spanish to undergraduates and to watch their knowledge and skills of language grow in the span of one semester.

¡Hasta pronto!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Patience, determination, and commitment with the student.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

If the student is taking Spanish, we would focus on what he/she is learning. If the student does not have any background or material, I would start from the bottom and see the level.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By providing skills and tools that will be implemented during tutoring sessions and that can be applied to any other subject.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By pointing out the improvements accomplished so far.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would try to teach that skill or concept again and again; each time in a different way with more examples and visuals.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Step one, tackle each line and paragraph at a time. This way the student has an idea of the theme. Also reading the questions first hand, because this will help the student keep focused on the answers she or he must find while reading.
