Hi, my name is Iris, and I love tutoring Spanish, which is my first language. I have a bachelor's degree in child development education, in human resources administration. I am a counselor in strategic family therapy and brief therapy. I enjoy working with people and human interaction, and I enjoy working with kids.
I can help people to develop their basic reading, writing and conversational Spanish skills. Working with kids, I use the Montessori Method, which comprises an educational approach, and a style of teaching designed to maximize young children's potential by harnessing their inherent curiosity of the world and their natural born desire to learn in an environment that is conducive to a positive thinking and expansion of the student's educational horizons.
I can give instruction to non-Spanish speaking students in the Spanish language by presenting lessons and answering questions about different school material. I evaluate the progress of them and conference with parents about how their kids were doing.
Due to my ten years of experience in the field of business and Human Resources, as a HR consultant and management, I could help adult students in subjects as business letters, CVs, job interviews, or helping them to improve their Spanish writing, grammar, vocabulary development to improve their conversational skills for a professional environment. I am able to work Tuesday to Friday during the evenings and some Saturdays in the morning. Hi, my name is Iris, and I love tutoring Spanish, which is my first language.

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.
I studied drawing and painting for 4 years, and have 4 semesters of theater costume design. I had my own business for about 6 years, a haute couture atelier (creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing) in Venezuela from 1991 to 1997 designing wedding and evening gowns. I not only designed, but I constructed them.
I learned to sew by hand from start to finish in middle school, two years in a catholic vocational school with Spaniard nuns doing clothes for babies.
Then I improved my skills and leaned haute couture with my grand mother and my auntie. They opened a bridal store when they come from Italy after WW2, a wedding dress store for 27 years.
I am able to show pictures of some of the dresses I made.
