Bio

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.

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.

I have been teaching Spanish as foreign language to adults from a wide variety of backgrounds and nationalities at Miami-Dade College from May 2006 to the present. As instructor, I have been instructing students at all levels of proficiency – Spanish 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and from beginner to advanced conversation; also Spanish for Children 6 to 12, developing lesson plans that are tailored to meet the individual and group needs of each class and programs; implementing strategies to optimize student performance, and integrating supplemental materials to vary lessons to consolidate concepts that engage the students and support the class objectives. I expect to teach my students to communicate with fluency and confidence in my native language.

Conducting classes and instructional sessions at company training centers or on-site in a corporate setting, and through Wyzant, as a tutor, providing a professional learning and nurturing student interest by ensuring the class is conducive to practicing newfound skills.

Excellent tutor

I have been working with Irma now for a couple months and we meet every 1-2 weeks. She is a good teacher and makes sure I continue to progress at a solid pace. We have been working through a book at about one chapter per lesson and she can see where I am making progress and where I still need help. I would definitely recommend her to other students looking for a one-on-one Spanish tutor. I have been very happy so far and look to continue with her as my tutor for the foreseeable future.

Excellent ,passionate and patience

Irma helped my daughter with Spanish 1 and 2 review at the end of the session my daughter was more confident with the subject. Irma was very passionate about the subject she teaches and is Patient in explaining the concepts. I would give her a five star as she went beyond the lessons in the text book to make sure my daughter was thorough with the subject.
