I have dedicated many years of my life teaching; despite I did not finish a career in Education or I had not worked as a teacher. I studied technology of education at the same time I was studying Physical therapy, but I was committed more to complete studies in the health field. All what I had studied involves teaching others in many ways. In rehabilitation we have to have the understanding how people learn to train our patients not only to follow our indications and explaining the medical part involves in their care, but also by explaining them how they can prevent injuries. Personally, I have a commitment with the general public about to inform prevention every time I write articles or do research in the physical therapy field. Later in my life due to my perusing for further knowledge to help my clients, I had completed studies in human services and natural health field. I had worked many years as a trainer for families in the human services. Furthermore, my work as volunteer and a task force member for the AHA have given me many opportunities to teach on health prevention of heart disease. My passion for teaching goes hand to hand with my passion to learn. I am offering to teach Spanish, because I know this is a very important language to know. Learning language helps our brain. It is important that we start learning a language from a native speaker. I am original from Venezuela. The Spanish I speak is more mono-tone. I had learned that international presenters / TV-Radio show reporters / come to Venezuela to reduce their accent. This monotone rhythm of the language facilitates listeners to comprehend better what they are hearing. Many are my skills, but I consider my patience, perseverance, and creativity to be my best skills. I am also a believer that learning must be fun and with real life examples.

I have started to take Spanish Lessons with Yngrid. I am conversational but wanted to achieve fluency if possible for my career. Yngrid understood this immediately, and began speaking to me at a very high level, from beginning to end. I have only taken one lesson so far, which was mainly an introduction. She talked in Spanish a majority of the time, pressing me to respond, and emphasizing pronunciation. She explained, again, completely in Spanish her goals for me, and how she would run the lessons, with learning verbs as a primary focus.
In short, there will be no break for English or translation. Essentially, you are learning Spanish from a native speaker, who seemingly knows no English. However, I will say that she is very accommodating. It appears other tutors have set plans for students to achieve certain goals at the end of 6, 7, or 8 weeks etc. I do not have such a schedule for the next lesson, or any lesson going forward, or how the program of tutoring will pan out. Therefore, this review is premature at this stage in time, and will likely be more accurate after 2-3 lessons.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
