« I have known Jimmy for seven years, as we have been fellow students at the Vanderbilt University’s PhD program in Spanish. During this time, I have witnessed his passion for teaching, and the positive rapport he consistently builds with his students. Jimmy believes in the affective filter’s impact in foreign language classrooms, and makes sure he builds a personal connection with each one of his students which, in turns, results in more effective, long lasting learning. I do not hesitate to recommend Jimmy as a great instructor, teacher, or tutor of Spanish. »

Spanish Teacher 6 years of experience. Native Speaker. Professional and with Second Language Acquisition Background.

Methodology

My teaching method is base on a communicative approach. It is student-centered, meaning students use the instructor as a guide in their assimilation of the target language (Spanish). With that in mind, my classes often ask students to create content-written or spoken- as a way to challenge them in their language learning process.

Background

I can teach beginner, intermediate and advance Spanish. Some of my students have won Fulbright Scholarships, in part because of there dominium of Spanish. I Have a B.A in Spanish Literature from Venezuela's top University (UCV), and I also have an M.A in Spanish from Vanderbilt University. I have a native speaker command of the Spanish language and more than 6 years of experience teaching Spanish at a college level. I have been teaching Spanish for Colleges students. I used to teach at Vanderbilt University in Nashville TN and also at Mercer University in Macon GA.

I’ve known Jimmy for a few years, such a great guy. Jimmy tutored my daughter last summer in Spanish, she’s a Junior at Kennesaw State University. Last semester she took her first college Spanish class and scored an A, this semester she’s taking a Spanish class for medical students. We are so grateful for Jimmy's time and patience, he’s an excellent teacher who makes learning Spanish fun and exciting. Jimmy tutored her in our home and trust was not an issue, it felt like he was a part of the family. Superprof members would really disadvantage themselves if they do not choose Jimmy. His style of teaching makes you feel comfortable and excited to learn, several times I had to stop the lessons because they were going over the time we scheduled and my daughter would say “just 10 more minutes mom” that’s the kind of teacher Jimmy is: a great one!
