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.
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.
