Hi! I am Tiffany Otto! I love working with students to help them achieve success and reach their goals! Right after high school I moved to Argentina to learn Spanish and have been traveling ever since. I live in Houston, one of the most diverse cities in the United States and enjoy meeting new people from all over the world right here in my own city. As a former high school Spanish teacher, I am definitely prepared to help you understand Spanish so you can feel confident in your abilities! I look forward to working with and getting to know you!
Undergraduate Degree: University of Houston - Bachelors, Spanish
Learning/speaking new languages, traveling, camping, outdoor activities, playing with my dog, volunteering, reading, learning, coffee with friends
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that each student has the capacity and ability to be successful at anything he/she sets her mind to. My job is to help students find ways to reach their potential!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In our first session, I want to get to know you and where you are in the content. I know that, if I can help tie your interests to what you're learning, you'll be more willing to work and find success. I also want to know where you are and how you learn so that I can provide individualized service and teaching to you!
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help you become an independent learner by teaching you skills to help you learn on your own. We can also pull in many of the resources available on the Internet to make independent learning both fun and engaging!
