New Mexico State University (Education)
I am a certified teacher with twenty-two years experience. I have certification in Bilingual Education/ESL, Secondary Spanish, and Elementary Education 1-8. I also hold a master's degree in Education with an additional certification as an Educational Diagnostician. Teaching is my calling I have taught grades ranging from first through college level.
I was hired last summer to teach English as a second language to college freshman from Mexico City and I LOVED IT! The students were motivated and striving hard to get ahead; it was gratifying to be their teacher. I taught them English, they taught me to appreciate the little things that I, as an American citizen, sometimes take for granted.
Having well developed oral language skills (oral expression and listening comprehension) is very important in everyday life, so if I can be of assistance as a tutor and develop or enhance these skills with students of any age, I will do my very best to see that I uphold every aspect of best practices in the field of Education.
I am certified Secondary Spanish and Bilingual/ESL. I have taught in the public education setting for the past twenty-two years and absolutely LOVE MY JOB! I thrive to help my bilingual students learn English through different modalities. I use pictures boards, songs, video snaps, newspapers, magazines anything and everything I can to help them get a clear picture of the lesson I am targeting for that day. I follow up with review, review, review everyday so they do not forget the previous days lesson. I work hard to incorporate all learning styles in every lesson (auditory, tactile, or visual) because we all learn, just in different ways. I have learned through many years of teaching the ideal ways to teach a student and have them retain the information. My bilingual students, who are thought of as non-passers in standardized test, not only passed their standardized tests, but have become some of the most productive, college educated citizens in society today.
I am a certified Spanish teacher and have taught all levels of Spanish from first through college level. Living in a border town like El Paso, Spanish is a necessity. I will work hard to incorporate all learning styles in each and every lesson and to fully engage my students in the lessons, through fun interacting experiences. I have found in the past that having a positive, caring, and patient outlook on the learner, will enable them to succeed to their potential.
I feel very confident that I am capable and reliable and well suited to accept any position as a Spanish or ESL tutor. I am certified and have many years experience. I am a highly qualified teacher and would be very interested in servicing your needs as a Spanish or ESL teacher.
