Apreciados alumnos :
I am from Venezuela and I have a BA degree in Education from Universidad de Sao Paulo, Brazil. I am fluent in English and Portuguese as well. My experience ranges from teaching large classes in Baltimore County Public Middle and High School and private school in Baltimore City (where I taught all grades from K-12), to tutoring individuals for more than 10 years.
My teaching methods include using materials that fit the student’s personal interests. I focus on pronunciation for those students who are at an intermediate or advanced level of Spanish grammar or for those who are more interested to learn Spanish for traveling or business. I teach students of all fluency levels. Many of my students prefer learning through conversational Spanish, but I also teach by using a more structured format depending on the needs and preferences of my students.
As a Private Tutor:
I have privately tutored several students over the past 10 years and consistently enjoy the process of finding the perfect fit between carefully-selected study materials and the individual student.
As a Classroom Teacher:
I am a versatile multilingual Science educator with a strong foundation in Spanish curriculum development. I taught Spanish (K-12) at the Father Kolbe School in Baltimore City, worked as a substitute teacher in foreign languages and ESOL in the Baltimore County School District, and was a teaching assistant at Owings Mills Elementary School.
In my home country of Venezuela, I taught elementary school Science and Mathematics at Unidad Educativa Escuela Comunitaria and Biology at the middle and high school levels at Colegio de Formation Integral and Colegio Teresiano del Paraiso.
As a Spanish Interpreter:
I have almost 5 years of professional experience as a Spanish interpreter, including ongoing work as a bilingual paralegal, at GBMC Hospital and my volunteer efforts at the Esperanza Center (Feria de la Salud and Feria legal) and JFON (Justice For Our Neighbors), which provides legal services for immigrants.
As an Author and Curriculum Developer in Spanish:
During my tenure at Success for All Foundation, a non-profit organization geared toward creating nationally-distributed curriculum materials for bilingual students, I wrote 60 Spanish-language children's books for the K-2 level, co-authored 36 lesson plans, and developed support materials for a bilingual program teacher's manual.
My Formal Education:
I worked as a research assistant for the Faculdade de Educação at the Universidade de São Paulo (Brazil), where I also received my Master of Education degree, with Honors, in "Didactics-Science." I received my Bachelor of Education degree in Biological Science from Andres Bello Catholic University in Caracas, Venezuela.
