My name is Steve S. I was a full-time Spanish teacher for 32 years primarily at a High School in Manteca, CA. I also taught English grammar at that high school. I also taught Spanish on a part-time basis for Delta College for 16 years. I have taught Medical Spanish for the University of the Pacific and for CSU Stanislaus in Stockton, CA. I have also tutored Spanish to high school students and have been teaching for a charter school on a part-time basis since retiring in 2002.
Everybody wishes to be heard and to be respected. My method of relating to students prior to retiring and since retiring is for students to be heard and to be respected. Their questions deserve to be answered fully. Whatever their particular focus for the days that we meet, it is with the understanding that I am there to help them understand the material. If they have quizzes, tests, and/or projects, I am there to help them with these kinds of assignments as well.
Beyond our tutoring sessions, I am available for any questions they may have. Also, if they have assignments they wish me to review and if our tutoring sessions are over, they can scan and email their assignments to me through the WyzAnt email account. Under these circumstances, it is important for them to call me so that I know they wish me to review what they have written.
Their objectives are to understand Spanish better and to earn higher grades. I am here to help them achieve their objectives.
