Hello, my name is Moises and I love teaching and tutoring Spanish to students from different backgrounds.
My first experience tutoring students was as a volunteer at the high school where I attended. I worked there for one summer helping students in improving their writing assignments as well as helping them to revise their homework and class-work.
I also have worked as a student-peer mentor at the college where I obtained my baccalaureate degree. Working as a mentor helped me develop listening and communication skills that are essential when tutoring and teaching. Working as a mentor not only allowed me to be familiar with the different challenges students commonly face, but it also gave me the abilities to help students cope with obstacles as well as to motivate them to continue furthering their education.
I also have student teaching experience at the college level. I have worked as a lower division Spanish Instructor for two years at the University of California, Davis. Working as Spanish Instructor has given me the opportunity to gain firsthand experience in teaching and tutoring students.
As a current Spanish Teacher at a private school, I pride myself not only for implementing comprehensive lesson plans that meet high academic standards but also in implementing a communicative approach in which students develop Spanish acquisition by practicing oral and written communication trough communicative activities and interactive games. Through this method students have the opportunity to acquire Spanish easily and allows them to be more accountable for their own learning while having fun.
In order to better develop students’ listening comprehension and oral skills, the language that I encourage in my tutoring sessions is Spanish. I use a friendly pedagogy that allows me to break down complicated concepts into simple examples that my students can grasp even when the language used is Spanish.
I look forward to meeting and working with students who want to learn or develop fluency in Spanish.
