Hola! I am a native Spanish speaker from Costa Rica. I have taught Spanish to people of all ages and levels in Costa Rica and the US. I majored in Spanish and minored in History at Rhode Island College. In May 2013, I will obtain my secondary teaching certification in Spanish and History through Providence College. I have some experience teaching ESL as I have taught English to students from the Dominican Republic and South Korea.
My teaching experience and education have taught me that all students are different; thus, they learn differently. My lessons are designed to improve any student’s language skills by utilizing his strengths and engaging him into learning. I believe that all students can learn a language if highly motivated to do so!
I am confident that I will improve your language skills. If you want to learn or improve your Spanish/ESL in general, I will teach you all areas of the language, such as grammar, pronunciation, reading, writing, and speaking. Some of the teaching methods that I use are scaffolding, games, music, vocabulary drills, reading and writing, role playing, conversations, etc.
