I have extensive experience in all levels of Spanish, with eight years in two private High Schools, teaching Spanish 1-4, AP and Dual Credit. As an Adjunct Professor at Texas Wesleyan University, I taught three levels of Spanish. My academic credentials include a Master of Arts degree in National Security Affairs / Latin America Studies from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and graduation with honors in Spanish at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA. In order to further my Spanish proficiency, I attended the Don Quixote Institute of Languages Superintensivo Program in Guanajuato, Mexico.

My strong passion for teaching Spanish to all age groups has resulted in my integrating multiple complementary techniques to reach the student. Through incorporating a wide variety of materials to aid in the learning process, I make learning a foreign language less intimidating. I want my students to have both a solid foundation and the comfort to enjoy Spanish.

Spanish

My professional credentials in the Spanish language span three decades. As an Air Force officer in the 1980s, I was a specialist in Latin American intelligence, performing English-to-Spanish and Spanish-to-English translation services. I received a Master's degree in Latin America Studies from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, and I graduated with honors from the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA. Later I attended the Don Quixote Institute of Languages, Guanajuato, Mexico, attaining "advanced C1" level in their superintensivo course. During the past decade, I have been teaching all levels of Spanish in several private high schools and at a university. My teaching style includes a mix of technical grammar comprehension and immersion drills. I integrate a variety of techniques (visual aids, sound aids, animation, hands-on, verbal and nonverbal activities) to ensure complete understanding of the specific concepts.
