Hi! I'm a passionate Spanish, English, and History teacher here in the Phoenix area. I have lived in Europe for 3 years and have 5 years of high school and middle school teaching experience. I have been teaching students for the last 10 years of all levels. I have many great references available and people say that I'm patient, flexible, knowledgeable, kind, and willing to go the extra mile so that the student understands the information. I am also currently completing my PhD in Spanish Linguistics.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe in a student-centered approach where the teacher is more of the facilitator. I put the student's needs and interests first and work to challenge the student so that he/she wants to investigate more about the subject.

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

Review the objectives of the lessons, and try to engage the student so he/she knows that I'm in his/her corner. Review some of the material that the student is struggling with.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Encourage students to research and investigate things that they enjoy that can connect to their learning experience.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By reminding students that learning is a key component of developing as a person, and by showing them the benefits of whatever they are learning.
