My method is unique because I teach how to think in Spanish, some techniques are: FVE, 4-W, and WIN. I not only use visual and hands-on, I also introduce the natural think association for faster word to word association. As a motivational speaker, I understand how important it is to communicate.
I really like to travel and know new places and meet new people. My hobbies are reading and learning about different cultures, and one of my interests is History.
Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I enjoy teaching Spanish because I can share part of my culture with so many people that speak other languages. I consider that the best way to communicate with somebody is by knowing his or her culture. Speaking different languages opens the door to a better understanding of the world that we live in. The opportunities are endless.
