My desire to impart my knowledge and love of learning to individuals who are interested in learning the Spanish language, led to assisting people to improve their knowledge.
My experience learning foreign languages has widened my understanding of teaching, and the importance of relational understanding to support individual's future learning.
I plan for many exciting opportunities for people to ensure they are stimulated and interested in what they are being taught. At the start of each topic, I ask open-ended questions to allow me to gauge what they already know, enabling me to plan the areas of learning to be developed.
During lessons I ensure that my plans contain activities which cater for all learning styles. This includes making learning very visual for Spanish language learners and allowing higher ability individuals to investigate topics in greater depth and with greater autonomy.
I have high and realistic expectations of every student, to enable them to reach their full potential. This can be achieved by providing good quality first-hand experiences which are both stimulating and interesting.

I'm a very curious person, when I was learning Japanese, I always wondered which Kanji characters were used the most. That's the reason why I decided to use my programming skills and find the answer by myself. I even published the results and the source code I used to analyze the data.
