This is a new career move for me. I'm an American born, US citizen that was raised overseas in both Central and South America. I graduated from an American high school in which I passed the equivalency of Spanish IV (12 grade Spanish) while in 10th grade. I find that today's teaching methods require the student to do a lot of memorizing with no real understanding of why they are doing it. My sister, who is a Spanish teacher, has used a full immersion type of approach which not only educates the student on the speaking aspect of the language but also about the differences they will find between our American culture and the Latin community. Depending on the proficiency of the potential student, I am going to recommend reading books (that are available from sites like Amazon) as well as working with vocabulary and structuring sentences. The ultimate goal is to help a student reach his or her potential to speak the language proficiently with other native speakers. Additional goals of course can be addressed with the Student or his/her parents specifically.

Este es un nuevo paso en su carrera para mí. Soy de origen estadounidense, ciudadano de los EE.UU. que fue criado en el extranjero, tanto en América Central y del Sur. Me gradué de la escuela secundaria estadounidense en el que pasé la equivalencia de Español IV (Espanol para el grado 12), mientras matriculado en el 10 º grado. Me parece métodos de enseñanza de hoy en día requieren que el estudiante haga un montón de memorización sin comprensión real de por qué lo están haciendo. Mi hermana quien es una maestra de Espanol ha utilizado un tipo de inmersión total de enfoca en que no sólo educa a los estudiantes en el aspecto del habla de la lengua Hispana, sino también acerca de las diferencias que se encuentran entre la cultura estadounidense y la comunidad latina. Dependiendo de la habilidad del alumno, voy a recomendar leer libros en Espanol(que están disponibles en sitios como Amazon.com), así como el trabajo con el vocabulario y la estructuración de oraciones. El objetivo final es ayudar a los estudiantes a alcanzar su potencial para hablar el idioma con soltura con otros hablantes nativos. Otros objetivos del curso se pueden disutir con el estudiante o su / sus padres en particular.
