About Frederick

As a former professional musician and Spanish professor, I enjoy sharing my love and enthusiasm for my subjects with young and adult students, in addition to stressing the importance of foreign-language proficiency in contemporary society. I have taught Spanish on the university level for ten years, and am also certified in Texas as Secondary Spanish Teacher (6-12). I am currently teaching grades 9-12 at Maud High School in suburban Texarkana, and will shortly retire to El Paso. In particular, the ubiquitous presence of heritage speakers in Texas has presented an especially interesting teaching situation, inasmuch as the task of motivating these students to acquire "textbook" grammar and compositional technique can be even challenging but also gratifying. Accordingly, my philosophy of teaching and tutoring is predicated on instructor availability, grammar within communicative contexts, immersion when practicable, technology when useful, consistency, fairness, and knowledgeability. Further, I am aware that a teacher touches many lives in a very real way, and that he/she must try to do so in a positive and constructive manner. Finally, I have found that a one-on-one tutoring situation can be of enormous help to a student who would benefit from extra assistance not generally available within the time constraints of the typical tightly-structured classroom scenario.
