TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been tutoring since university on and off. Now I do it full-time and love what I do. I tutor French and Spanish to all ages of kids and adults. I work with kids who are learning a language for the first time, those who need extra help with their school classes, and adults who want to learn a new language for fun or travel.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a communicative approach to get my students talking right away. I love TPRS (learning through story telling) and CI (comprehensible input). I also love mnemonics and using spaced repetition to reinforce learning. Also, I use clipart and other visuals to help visual learners and TPR (total physical response) for kinesthetic learners.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a degree in teaching, a minor in Spanish, and I currently am continuing studying with non-degree classes. Hoping to start a master's programme at some point in future.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I grew up speaking Spanish with my Salvadorean neighbors and my best friend from Peru. Later, my Peruvian stepfamily entered my life! I then earned a minor in Spanish at university. In 2011, I worked in East Boston, where I spoke Spanish every day at work. I love to travel, and I have been to Budapest, Hungary where I taught English, to Denmark to visit my Danish family, to Madrid for a cultural/linguistic experience, and to Québec to learn French. I post on my Spanish and French blogs for my students to learn about culture.
