Hello,

I am Carina and hold a Master's in Education from Lesley College, MA. I was born in Argentina. I have been studying English since I was 4. I used to teach English there until I moved to the US in 1996. Since then I have been teaching Spanish both in language institutes in New York city and close to my current home in Newburgh, NY. I love languages, teaching and people. I am fully bilingual and I live a bilingual life raising my daughter who is ten and my son who is 3 years old as I expose them to both Spanish and American languages and cultures daily.

I believe everybody regardless of age and experience can learn if I respect the student's needs, pace and learning style , and if I tap into his or her interests, likes and strengths. Covering a comprehensive approach that includes speaking, reading, writing and listening is necessary since these four areas of knowledge feed off each other. Knowledge, fun, flexibility, resourcefulness, creativity together with the specific teaching strategies and attitudes will guarantee an effective pleasant experience for the student.

I encourage, I model, I give feedback, I challenge, I praise, I reward as needed. I welcome mistakes since I see them as opportunities to learn. I take advantage of as many chances as possible to provide cultural information to give a context and to enrich the learning as well. I give homework because I know practice produces learning and learning reinforces motivation.

I can't wait to meet you, my new student!
