I am a highly skilled Spanish teacher with 4 years of experience at the MS and HS level, looking to help in the Cleveland area.

Methodology

I make sure all lessons are well planned, and are student-centered. That means that the student is discovering answers and learning through doing with the teacher as a guide. I believe that the teacher should be speaking Spanish for about 90% of the class, even if it is using cognates and basic words, because immersion at any level is the best way to attain a language.

Background

I have been a Spanish teacher for a combined 4 years in Michigan and Ohio. Several students have gone on to live in other countries because of their skill with the language and understanding of other cultures. I am WPT and OPI certified in Spanish, and I have a Spanish Bachelor's degree from Grand Valley State University.
