Ph.D. student with 5 years of experience gives Spanish language and culture class in London, Ontario

Methodology

I base my classes on students' needs. I like to hear what my students are interested in, then I build a class plan according to it. Personally, I think language Spanish must have a combination of different activities to make the session attractive for everybody.

Background

I am a Mexican student. I got my Master degree in Western University where I have been teaching for the last 5 years. In this time, I acquired some experience working with groups between 5- 30 students who are learning Spanish as a foreign language. At the same time, I gained knowledge about e-learning and trends in education
