I am a veteran public school teacher with over 16 years of experience teaching Second Language Learners as a certified public school teacher in Arizona. I am passionate about helping students succeed. I have worked with both public school students and professionals equally and am comfortable with all ages. I did my formal schooling in the US but have spent quite a bit of time with my family in Venezuela. Spanish is my first language so I am fluent in all areas of literacy. I believe that language is learned through meaningful use and my upbringing provided the basis for a life of rich language and cultural experiences.

I help students with English and Spanish through a variety of methods. For adults and students alike, I can focus on any aspect of language learning, whether it be grammar, oral, written, etc. We can focus on content related language acquisition for language in the workplace or language specific to a content area like science or social studies.

I am familiar with ACTFL (American Counsel on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) and I guide students through the levels of proficiency so that students can use the rating system to present their language ability in the workplace. I can also direct students to online resources where students can practice a host of language skills on their own.
Most importantly, I like to have fun!

My experience in public education spans K-12 and covers not only classroom teaching but mentoring, coaching (strategic teaching skills), technology, and language acquisition. I have worked for in-district grants in areas of technology and language acquisition focusing on Two-Way Language Programs.

I look forward to our first session!

I want to share a web page I made years ago when working in a high school district in Phoenix. I haven't kept up on the links for years but I have yet to find any that don't work. Even if a few are broken, I think this is a useful tool for teachers and students. I have it leveled ESL 1-2 and 3-4, based on the courses we were offering and so it follows our Standards at that time.  http://itraveltolearn... read more
