I have been teaching Spanish and English to children and adults since 1998. From Florida I moved to Albuquerque to study Communications at the University of New Mexico, and later I began working in the television production industry. At this time, I was in charge of writing scripts in Spanish and English for a travel TV show. Later, I worked as a freelance writer and editor for public television stations in Florida.
In 2002 I moved to Oviedo, Spain to complete my master's degree in Spanish, and to teach English. Six years later, I returned to the United States to study education and ESL at City University of Seattle, and later I began to work for the Bellevue School District.
As a personal tutor, first I like to identify my student's strengths and needs to customize my lessons and present the material in an engaging and simple way. After I introduce my lesson objective and main concepts, I usually start with simple and practical exercises before getting into the grammatical structure of the language, but I always emphasize real-life scenarios and the natural use of the target language. My communicative approach reflects global influences and a rich vocabulary.
