Since I was born and raised in a Latin American Country, I am well positioned to teach both the culture and the language. I consider this to be a great advantage, as immersing students in the most fascinating aspects of Hispanic culture can stimulate their motivation and interest in learning Spanish. It is extremely important to me to encourage students to learn and understand the importance of cultural diversity. As a Spanish teacher, I understand the relevance of the Spanish language as the second most spoken language in the U.S. I am concerned about creating a comfortable atmosphere where the learning process can be natural and dynamic and where students can feel they can achieve their goals. I have a positive attitude and I am tremendously engaged and passionate about my career. I design my lessons with flexibility of students' needs, expectations, and learning styles.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Humanities as well as a Master's degree in Higher Education with an emphasis in Philosophy from one on the most prestigious universities in Colombia. My outstanding academic accomplishments, which include an undergraduate GPA of 3.7, graduate GPA of 4.0, a merit scholarship, a perfect scoring thesis, and a Maxime Cum Laude academic honor, make me suitable to provide solid instruction for all students. I have taught and tutored the Spanish language at both secondary and college level students for more than six years. Moreover, I have experience teaching other subjects such as Modern and Contemporary Philosophy and Latin American Literature. Furthermore, I worked as a philosophy researcher for the Colciencias Institute, the most important research center in Colombia. I have published several articles as well as participated in different symposiums and congresses at an international level. Finally, as a tutor, I have worked at different companies in Fairfield County area instructing adults.
