Lots of talking and learning based on examples acquisition. In order to produce, you need to induce. Also I tend to let my learners walk by themselves, make mistakes but always watching their backs. I never let anyone down. However the key is the interest and motivation of the student. Everything else should come naturally.
I am a language instructor with experience in both private and public system ( College and University). I have thought languages for about 10 years now and I can assure you a tailor-made experience with proven results teaching techniques. Ready to learn? because I am ready to guide you to your dream.
I charge 25$ for a beginner student but with a student that has previous knowledge of the language, I can teach for 20$ an hour.
An Hispanic Studies Graduate from the University of Puerto Rico. As a Language Instructor, I always wanted to find a way that my students could enjoy their learning experience. Over the years, I learned that the most important skills of an educator is passion, patience and dedication. I am looking for an experience that makes me a better human being but also that could make me understand more the subtleties of the relation between language and society.
