Bilingual Communication Studies graduate offering ESL and Spanish online lessons to all ages.

Methodology

- I am an organize, driven and creative person who wants to teach English/Spanish lessons in a dynamic and innovative way to people of all ages.
- My teaching methods will vary depending on each student. Customized lessons for each student will facilitate each of them to learn at their own pace.
- English is my third language and I've gone through the process of learning a different language than my mother tongue for many years. I want to teach my students the most successful learning techniques that I've been exposed to and created myself so they can learn how to speak/improve their proficiency in another language.
