My approach to teaching Spanish is to make it fun and practical. I use communication all the time, so that the student can start speaking in Spanish since the first day. I tailor every class to every student. Each student has his/her own difficulties and I have to address them in a different way so that the student succeeds!! I am a very energetic and motivating professor.
I have strong knowledge about different methods and approaches to learn a foreign language. I adapt my lessons to the students´s needs, focusing on speaking and listening. I try to give entertaining lessons, helping students to feel relaxed and have no fear of speaking.
When I planning a class, the most important thing is to know first what the objective of the class in question is. And based on this plus their knowledge needs and interests of students, either to learn the language for academic or professional reasons I plan and prepare activities with wich to define the content and support it.
My teaching methodology is based on the Berlitz system, because I have taught with them for many years. I like to give my students live-practical examples and everything is done in either Spanish or English, depending on the language I am teaching.
I primarily teach elementary Spanish, but I have taught intermediate Spanish privately. I have also taught elementary age children as well. I believe in an equal balance between oral & written proficiency. In my classes, we do oral exercises every day, as well as traditional writing exercises. I always ask my students questions to be certain that they understand the material.
I am a native of Tucson who acquired a foundation in Spanish at home, High School and the University of Arizona. I have taught Spanish in Middle School, High School and to adults. I would promote knowledge of the alphabet and phonemic awareness, spelling, reading practice for accuracy and fluency, and composition. I use teacher designed lessons to accommodate each students needs.
I am from Spain so I can help you with your Spanish. I have a PhD in molecular genetics and a degree in Environmental Science. I have also taught Math in Middle School.
My methodology, is based mainly on a communicative approach, where you will begin to speak from the first class. Through dialogues, games, songs, videos, and images you will learn grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. The classes are personalized, tailored to every student's specific needs.
I teach using different and also the last methologies on language teaching and learning: Task-based language teaching and critical learning approaches that allow my students to learn the most with significant lessons. I adapt my methodologies depending on my students' needs and interests.
As a tutor, I like to connect with students in order to be able to keep them engaged in the lesson plan that I will prepare personally for them based on their likes and hobbies, as well as their personality.
If you're looking to practice conversational Spanish with someone who has extensive knowledge and experience in the Spanish culture as well as language teaching, I'm the tutor for you! I can also tutor you on Spanish grammar, listening, writing and reading. I teach all levels beginner - intermediate / advanced.
Is learning Spanish frustrating/scary? I say- it's time to "DEJAR LOS EGOS AFUERA" or check your ego at the door. As your instructor or tutor, my focus is to identify your weaknesses in order to prepare and execute lessons or activities that will improve your abilities in a judgement-free learning environment.
I believe that language learning is best when both practical and fun. Genuine, spontaneous communication in realistic scenarios is the key. Within the flexibility allowed by the curriculum, topics of discussion will be tailored to students' interests while also including cultural and historical information.
I am a student learning and speaking Spanish. I teach Spanish from to all levels (beginning, intermediate, advanced, etc.). I teach writing reading and speaking using interactive techniques by teaching material then answering questions a student might have. This way, students are able to get answers and help on tehethings they need most.
All ages welcome! My teaching style will help you gain language naturally. I value the "learning by doing" method. We will mostly communicate in the target language. Conversations will encompass various everyday topics and subjects to diversify your language input.
I will make you work! But, we can have a little fun along the way as well - as you prefer. My classes are entirely tailored to your needs, interests, level, and learning style. My classes are structured and comprehensive: at different times we will focus on progressively strengthening grammar structures, building vocabulary, building fluency, comprehension, and more.
Repetition is the mother of all learning. I chose this methodology because it emphasizes drill work in order to make answers to questions instinctive and automatic. New forms are first heard by students, with written forms coming only after extensive drilling. The language used for these drills is based on what is required for practicing the specific form; it might or might not be natural.
My teaching method is to keep the end goal in mind and build the tutoring around the students levels of language proficiency from beginning to more advanced. I base my sessions on the specific needs of each student to build their confidence and esteem.
my approach to teaching language focuses on improving the student's ability to communicate in Spanish. Each session includes vocabulary, grammar and lots of oral practice, you will notice that you will progress quickly in the Spanish language.
I believe that learning should be fun and applicable to situations we come across in our daily lives. My goal as a tutor is to both help my students excel academically, and prepare them for any situations in their personal and future professional lives where they could need to apply their Spanish skills.
My teaching approach is based on student needs and objectives. I teach based on learning styles and comprehension rates, giving my students the proper, fun lesson plans they need to reach their individual goals. My students are from all walks of life and all have different objectives for learning Spanish. I do my best to reach my students' needs.
Without a doubt my forte is storytelling, my style is a hybrid between a lecture and a discussion method. In all my classes –no matter the grade or subject to teach- I open with a question and a follow up story, anecdote or latest news to introduce the theme of the day, inviting students to ponder questions, encouraging participation and teamwork.
Firstly, I ask the student for any inquiry doubt and/or trouble subject. Once I make a basic assessment of the student’s level, I proceed to reinforce the needed subjects. I explain a subject as many times and ways as needed until the student fully comprehends it. Then, I ask the student to apply it through grammar exercises or other applications.
I have great communicative skills and love teaching others. My methodology is to have my students practice basic vocabulary and simple sentences at first to build a basis to work from.
I serve two primary populations in my teaching expertise: adult learners who are professionals in healthcare, social work, psychology or education; and high school students who need extra help in their classes, either generally or to prepare for an exam.
I want to become a teacher because I know the impact it can make, I've had many teachers who changed my life. It is because of exceptional teachers that I have continued my education, they inspired me to become a teacher myself, I saw the impact and I wanted to imitate that passion.
In all my classes I use an active method where I keep the students attentive. Where I promote student participation using what they learn in context. I base my Spanish classes in cultural and inclusive contexts, with which I introduce the new topics.
I use what I consider a holistic approach.For that reason, I take a little of every language teaching method to address the learners' personal learning styles and strategies. In additon, a lot of practice because it makes the difference. Most classes I try to use the natural approach which means following the same steps we use to learn our first languages.
My method of teaching in very effectively simple. First, I introduce the basics of grammar and how words sound in Spanish. Second, I speak and explain everything in Spanish and if the student does not understand I correct and little by little I help him to understand effectively.
I base my teaching in a conversational approach and a hands-on project-based approach.
