About Alexander

I graduated DePaul University, Chicago IL in 2005. I began working for two years as a Technical Trainer for the Cook County Clerks Office teaching civil service courses and Microsoft Office to a wide range of people, ages, cultural backgrounds, etc. I work in K-12 English as A Second Language Programs for an Intermediate Unit. I deal primarily with curriculum and coursework pertaining to English as a Second Language, but have a wide familiarity with materials in foreign languages. I am fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, as well as basic Galician (a regional Spanish dialect), and French.

My approach to teaching involves understanding the similarities and roots of Romance Languages. Additionally, I emphasize vocabulary building using your surroundings, and especially knowledge of cognates (in a sense, you already know how to speak most Romance Languages). I have developed my own cross-language teaching guides and possess a comprehensive home library of teaching materials and books in Spanish, Portuguese, Galician, and French. Additionally, I have an extensive catalog of maps in foreign languages, primarily Spanish, as I believe that understanding Spanish place names and locations aides in the understanding of the extent of Spanish influence and culture.
