About Roxanna

My name is Roxanna, I am a fully Credentialed Spanish Teacher. I have worked for the public school system for two years and taught for three years abroad. I have taught all levels of Spanish and Spanish for Native Speakers. As an avid language learner myself, I have attended Comitato Linguistico in Perugia and Accademia Italiana in Salerno, IT; where I have received certificates of fluency of level 3 in Italian. As a Spanish Teacher it is it an immense asset that I acquire other Romance languages to promote language acquisition to my current and former students. I am currently pursuing my Masters degree in TESL Linguistics and I received my Spanish Language and Culture and Chicano Studies Bachelors degree in 2012.

As a teacher I am committed to my students and their learning and I am dedicated to making knowledge accessible to all students. I am passionate about the acquisition of languages and it has become my mission to promote and motivate my students in the wonderful world of languages. For this reason I adjust their practices based on observation and knowledge of my students' interests, abilities, skills, knowledge, family circumstances and peer relationships. My goal is to create, enrich, maintain and alter instructional settings to capture and sustain the interest of my students and to make the most effective use of their time.

I work every year as a Spanish Teacher in Spain with students studying abroad some for the very first time; while they acquire Spanish language skills and begin to feel confident with my abilities in the language. In Spain, I work with a Spanish language school that is fully accredited and meets the need of the students that travel with me while abroad. I collaborate with other teachers to create an academic and culturally rich environment for our group of High School students from California. As part of my job I promote conversational skills and review Spanish grammar rules with the students, as needed. I believe that the best way to acquire a language is through full immersion, which is why we start speaking Spanish in the first lesson with my students.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Special Needs

As a credentialed teacher by the state of any subject matter we must take at least one three unit course of Special Education to be able to work with the special education population. However, I felt that this course was not sufficient to truly work and be educated to work with this group of students; therefore I took additional courses at my university.

With these additional 20 units in Special education, I feel I am a highly qualified applicant to be able to work with students of special needs. In addition, I have worked in a child care center for five years with children with mild to moderate disabilities.

Lastly, while teaching Foreign language for the public school system in the past two years, I have had students with IEP's that I would ensure to abide by and provide additional accommodations as I felt most suited for the student. Often times I would contact the parents and/or speak to the students to gain additional knowledge to ensure their success.

Here are the following class titles I have taken that I feel makes me highly qualified to work with this population of students.

SPED 400: SPED 400. Developmental Differences and Implications in Special Education
SPED 402: Behavioral Assessment and Positive Behavior Support
SPED 406: K-12 Literacy Instruction for Diverse Learners with Disabilities
SPED 404: Teaching Diverse Learners with Social-Communication Disabilities, Including Autism
SPED 420: Improving the Learning of Students with Special Needs Through Differentiated Instruction and Collaboration

If course descriptions are needed, I can easily provide that information as well.
