I have had over 30 years of experience teaching Spanish language, composition, reading and Spanish speaking to hundreds of high school, elementary and college age students. I have taught at Wisconsin State University, State University of New York at Geneseo, and the University of North Carolina.
One of my favorite efforts was teaching exceptional students at an elementary school in a summer enrichment program in Geneseo, NY. The second and third graders were so enthusiastic as they learned common short phrases, such as "What is your name?", "How old are you?", numbers, the alphabet and songs in Spanish.
When my 2 sons were in high school, I taught Spanish as a substitute teacher. Students seemed to enjoy having a fluent Spanish speaker who had traveled and studied in Spain and South America. I could relate tales of my travel experiences, in Spanish, that kept them attentive.
My "tutoring" methodology is to speak Spanish at all times. I teach using a variety of methods, including repetition, short conversations, functional Spanish (ie. how to function in a restaurant, for instance: reading the menu, ordering, paying the bill). This leads to greater facility in Spanish speaking settings.
