Hi everyone! I really enjoy being a Spanish and Music & Movement Teacher in a private preschool and I would like to extend my repertoire by tutoring. I also do Ballroom Dancing, Hula and Tahitian. I am a member of a group that performs Hula in festivals and private parties. I am excited to share my talent and abilities to the younger generation most especially to the preschoolers and school-agers. Aside from Spanish, I can also tutor Filipino/Tagalog language even to older people.
I have been in the field of education for more than twenty years. I have two majors in college: Family and Child Development and Elementary Education. Since I have more than 10 years of experience in preschool education, it has become my favorite. I have also several credits in the Master of Arts in Education program. I was a Dance Aerobics Teacher for eleven years.
Children find me funny and motherly. My co workers say that I am friendly, sweet and easy to get along with. I am known to be very creative in my lessons, flexible, loving and has lots of patience with the kids. Parents have always been complimenting and thanking me for what I am doing for their children.

Ballroom Dancing

Actually, I would like to put in Hula Dancing but it is not in the list. I have been dancing Hula since high school and now I am a member of a group that performs in festivals and private parties. I practice every Saturday. I have pictures and videos to show if required.

Fitness

I led fitness classes for 11 years. I was an Aerobics Teacher to two places, teaching 5 times a week, Monday thru Friday. I have students and co teacher who are still around and can testify that I have been their Aerobics teacher or co worker.

Currently, I am still a member of a gym and attend fitness class or workout three times a week and do Hula once a week to keep me fit.
