About Alora

Hola! Bonjour! I love teaching Spanish and French! I have been a teacher/tutor for 20 years. I've taught all ages, from pre-school to senior citizens. I have also traveled to Spain, Mexico, and Central America and I enjoy sharing the information and experiences with my students.

I use a variety of teaching techniques to meet the needs of diverse learners. For beginning students, I begin with TPR (Total Physical Response),in which the student learns the target language (Spanish or French) much like they learned their primary language: by responding to commands. "Stand up", "Sit down", "Touch your nose", "Point to the computer" are some examples. I also use TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling). In this approach, the teacher tells basic stories, pointing to words and definitions on a chart. The student answers basic questions as the story progresses. Students quickly learn to ask and answer questions as well as master basic and then advanced vocabulary and structure with this approach. In addition, I use music, games, graphic organizers, and conversations, depending on the age and interests of the student.

Getting to know the student and his/her interests and needs is key to a successful tutoring experience. My goal is to tailor the sessions to the student so that s/he learns the language and enjoys him/herself.
