About Irma

I like to customize the learning experience based on the student’s proficiency and matched with their goals and objectives. I leverage a variety of resources in tailoring the curriculum to help the student maximize their progress. I like to work with the student to create a personalized outline of what is the agreed upon course of action.

My instruction involves grammar, based on a side-by-side comparison with English grammar, with emphasis on proper verb conjugation and syntactical structures. I like to encourage student participation and conversation with appropriate pronunciation, based on the needs that the student has identified.

I have a degree in Education (minor in Spanish and Literature) and am a native Spanish speaker. I have been working as a regular part-time Spanish Instructor at Miami Dade College since 2004 and am a certified translator.

I am a very responsible, dedicated, highly motivated person with a good positive attitude and excellent interpersonal skills. In addition to Spanish and English, I also speak Italian and French.

I have positive attitude and I’m very personable. I really enjoy teaching and I like to make learning easy and fun.
