My name is Eduardo. I am a native Spanish speaker living in the New York City area. Congratulations on taking this step to step up your Spanish. I am excited to learn about you, your interests, and your objectives for learning Spanish so that we can develop a fun and smooth process to get you hablando con fluidez. On my free time I enjoy surfing, playing lacrosse, and checking out all mediums of art (theatre, film, fine art, music, photo, design). Nos vemos pronto!
What is your teaching philosophy?
Student and Teacher working together to reach a common goal. The teaching process grows from the student's goals and objectives for the subject matter.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
First and foremost, get to know them as a person. Answer any initial questions they might have for me or the subject matter, and start to develop a plan of attack.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Through learning their interests, aptitudes, and hobbies, I would attempt to funnel learning material through those veins. Also, help develop their courage for speaking Spanish with others outside of tutoring sessions.
