Native Spanish speaker offering tutoring in any area needed for students of all levels and ages.

Methodology

I like to approach language learning through culture and story telling. I think that becoming engaged in a story or sparking a curiosity for another culture can make language learning not only more accessible, but it can create an environment in which the student will learn without being a passive listener or reader. Furthermore, I think one of the most important things when learning a language is having a safe environment to be wrong. Especially when speaking, many students may become shy or insecure because they don't want to sound unintelligent. However, it is my philosophy that only through making these mistakes can one ask the right questions to make progress.

Background

I am a recent graduate of the University of California, San Diego. I am a native Spanish speaker, born in Mexico City. I have excellent reading, comprehension, verbal and writing skills. I am also a very clear speaker which is helpful for students' process to becoming better at comprehension.

Fedra's resume

I am a recent graduate from UCSD where I received a degree in theatre and earned a cumulative GPA of 3.65. I am a native Spanish speaker. I was born in Mexico City where I had my first exposure to language. There I learned to read, write and essentially to communicate. The level of my Spanish has remained as elevated as that of someone who has lived their entire life in Mexico.


I am very sensitive to what it means to learn another language. As a child, I learned English very quickly, and then as a teenager I began to learn French, a process which I am still undertaking. Therefore, I know what it takes to build language skills. The most important thing for me has always been to have a safe environment in which I can ask all the questions I may have, however "stupid" they may seem to me (though, of course, there is no such thing as a stupid question) and however many times I have to ask them. I like to present languages through songs, TV shows, films, texts, and grammar books and exercises.


I am looking forward to helping you on your journey to learning the beautiful Spanish language. Together we will find the best ways and methods for you to learn, and we will make Spanish an easy and intuitive tool for communication and interaction with the world through time.
