With more than a decade of experience studying more than 5 different languages as a foreign language student myself, not only do I understand the responsibility of teaching a language, but more importantly, I recognize and relate to the precise requirements, concerns and challenges foreign language students face, and thus am able to provide a positive and motivating learning environment to meet all of their goals and needs.
I believe that learning a language is about more than just the grammar and the vocabulary; learning a language is about learning a culture, and this is a critical theme that I strive to incorporate into my lessons and teaching strategies to truly create an enjoyable, applicable, and relevant learning experience.
In Spanish language in particular, my formal academic background was composed of 5 years at the high school level, including AP Spanish 4 Language and AP Spanish 5 Literature. Since then, I have spent extensive time abroad in Spanish-speaking countries and working with Spanish-speaking colleagues and friends.
