I have a bachelor of arts with specialization in plastic expression from an accredited University in the United States. My native language is Spanish, I have two years of experience teaching English as a foreign language and three years teaching art to children between four and 16 years old. I have one year of experience teaching Spanish in after-school programs in Houston ISD schools such as River Oaks Elementary, Durham Elementary, and Harvard Elementary among others. I am certified to teach all levels of art and Spanish in the State of Texas. My lessons are very creative and fun, as I like to use ludic activities such as games and crafts to teach.

3. The student will be able to write simple sentences or paragraphs depending on his/her level.

4. Students will communicate on everyday topics using short responses and short questions.

Examples of basic topics are:
Description of persons, telling time, food and beverages, clothing, sizes, numbers, family members, rooms, description of places, parts of the body, etc.

*Depending on the level of the student and age, the topics vary; with advanced students the vocabulary gets more complex and the conversations are expected to be longer.
The methodology can be different if the student is pretty young.
