I am a native Spanish speaker, from La Paz, Bolivia. I hold a bachelor degree in Arts with a major in Communication. In 2010, I took and aproved the Spanish test GACE I and II to work in Gwinnett County Public Schools. In my free time I founded a Spanish Club where people enjoy one or two hours speaking in Spanish.

I have been teaching since 2003. I teach to different groups of people, from two years old, teenagers, young professionals and adults; sometimes I have to start my curriculum in beginner, intermediate, advance, conversational or business level depending of my students; but I always create a specific curriculum for everyone. I am always looking for new techniques to use especially with children, most of the time I play, sing songs and do some fun activities.

I want to share my passion of teaching with people, share with them information and experience about other cultures. In the other hand, I am sure that learn another language help develop specific new brain activities, for example the statistics said that people that speak more than one language get higher scores in tests, have better reading skills, and develop great self confidence.

Why some people learn faster than other ones? I just can say that practice makes perfection. And if you give me the opportunity to share my language with you, soon, very soon you will be bilingual, exactly as I am.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Spanish

In my Spanish class I explain concepts, new vocabulary or grammar in a easy way to understand. I am fluent in Spanish and English, so if a concept is not clear in one language I will explain it in the other one.

Since 2003 I had been teaching Spanish in different levels, and I am a native speaker, from La Paz, Bolivia.

And last but not least, I love to teach, I love to see how my students are getting better and better every day and this is because they are learning and they are practicing the concept that they learn.

I passed the GACE Spanish tests I and II and I do hold a bachelor's degree in Social Communication Science with a major in Communication. I do have the credential to teach, the experience, the desire and the passion to teach my language.
