Highly-qualified professor with 20+ years of experience committed to teaching communicative English and Spanish in Raleigh, NC

Methodology

My lessons are based on the premises of Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) and the constructivist approach. I apply dynamic, highly-motivating, anxiety-free strategies which have proven to be effective among English/Spanish learners. They are aimed at fostering meaningful learning and meeting students language needs.

Background

I am an Emeritus Professor from the Department of Modern Languages at LUZ where I worked for 26 years. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Education (concentration in Modern Languages), a Master’s degree in Linguistics and Language Teaching and a Ph.D. in Human Sciences.
