Learning a foreign language can be a challenge and frustrated goal to reach to some students. Being an educator is a significant part of my life. I observe and listen to my students and try to keep them motivated. Teaching my native Spanish language enables me to draw upon my own culture and personal experience as a foreign language learner, while teaching my students to effectively communicate with me in my own language and perhaps more importantly, to gain and appreciate another language and culture.
My objective as a teacher and tutor is to motivate my students toward a level of independence where they develop a desire to learn and think for themselves. To reach this end I rely upon many activities, (cognitive and social). I employ methods that include language warm up and grammar activities, vocabulary contest, and the use of technologies.
I have the ability to understand how to develop a curriculum. I am very conscientious, inventive and creative in designing a program that will suit each person. I take personal interest in how my students are progressing and combine a variety of approaches that address their individual needs. I have a great sense of humor and I am instilled in all my students a sincere desire to make Spanish a part of their lives and most important to help them identify cultural differences between USA and the Hispanic world and the impact of theses differences in today's multicultural workplaces. Learning a language is a bridge to understand and to interrelate with so many cultures.
