I am interested in tutoring because I believe there is greater potential in each student and my knowledge and experience can help students achieve their goals. I am a native from Mexico City, where I earned a Bachelor Degree. I also attended the University of Arizona for Graduate studies in Journalism, Theatre and Interpreter-Translation (English-Spanish). My background also includes Teaching different levels: middle school, college, and adults.
I have had the opportunity to work for more than 6 years with a diverse student community. My students have been culturally diverse teenagers and adults, Latin American immigrants whose English language experience is limited, Spanish speaking adults with little or no English fluency, teenagers who were born in The United States and had little or no Spanish fluency or immigrants from other non English speaking countries. I have learned and have enjoyed working with them and it is not only challenging but very rewarding to teach a diverse group of students.
The materials that I have developed for certain classes, especially the beginning level, had been very easy to understand for the student and encourage them to keep learning and taking more advance level classes. As an Instructor, I feel confident in the lesson plans I have developed as I have seen the positive results in the community. The classes that I have been teaching are always useful in the further development for education for adults. Some of the students who have taken my classes have gone to higher education at Pima Community College or the University of Arizona.
At the moment I hold a position as a Translator, and would love to share my experience with anyone interested in learning/improving their Spanish skills.
