My positive experiences involving Second Language Acquisition serve as my primary reason for continuing to promote the benefits that the Spanish language poses both culturally and linguistically for students. It is my goal to combine my personal experiences with my ability to be a compassionate and enthusiastic mentor to contribute to your student's overall language acquisition experience.
My specialization in Hispanic Literature provides a distinct dimension to my teaching and is used to cultivate analytical and critical thinking skills amongst my students. By fostering an atmosphere in which students feel confident and motivated to exercise newly acquired grammatical skills exclusively in the target language, I provide them the opportunity to practice their roles as global communicators and gain confidence to practice these skills in their own classrooms!
