I have been teaching Spanish as a Foreign language and Spanish for Bilingual students, as well as French Beginner level. I have ten years of experience of teaching a foreign languages.
I love for my students to be involved in learning 100%. I create environments and activities for students to be learning while I serve as a personal model and a facilitator in this process. In lower level classes I use a lot of modelling and demonstration at the same time. I enjoy student-centered collaborative environments where students discover, research, seek answers and debate in order to acquire knowledge and experience with the language.

BA in English as a Foreign Language MA in Spanish Minor in French
I am originally from Ukraine. Since I moved to the United Stayes in May of 2003, I have been teaching Spanish Language and Literature to both bilingual and monolingual students. I have also been teaching French for a little over a year. I am extremely fond of foreign languages, and if I had my wish granted I would be speaking all languages in the world! :-) For right now I would have to stop at five: Russian, Ukrainian, Spanish, English and French. My family is multicultural and I strongly believe in teaching children multiple languages from the crib!
