About Laraine


Bio

I am a retired teacher of Spanish and English as a Second Language, having taught every level from PK - adult. I have always enjoyed the interaction between student and teacher, and treat my students with respect and consideration for whatever phase in life they are experiencing. My lessons incorporate creative activities, such as music, art, reading, puppetry. Acquisition of a second language should be done in as natural a way as possible, with visuals, conversation and repetition.

I am a retired teacher of Spanish and English as a Second Language, having taught every level from PK - adult. I have always enjoyed the interaction between student and teacher, and treat my students with respect and consideration for whatever phase in life they are experiencing. My lessons incorporate creative activities, such as music, art, reading, puppetry. Acquisition of a second language should be done in as natural a way as possible, with visuals, conversation and repetition.
I began to study Spanish in the ninth grade and enjoyed it immensely. The Hispanic culture, music, literature, art, history and people fascinate me. As a young adult, I spent one summer studying at La Universidad de las Americas, Mexico City, Mexico and a few weeks on vacation in Spain. More recently, I took a cruise to Panama, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic where I used my Spanish as much as possible.
Upon moving to So. Carolina, I volunteered to tutor English as a Second Language and became a substitute teacher in my county. I have been working as a Spanish tutor for Horry-Georgetown Technical College at two campuses since 2018. In March, I will be doing a bilingual story time at a local library with children ages 2 - 5. I have had experience teaching PK in a private school and grades 1 - 5 in a public schools. The enthusiasm of this age group is wonderful and probably the best time to start learning a language.
