About Alicia

I am a certified and experienced Spanish and literature teacher. My studies took place in Argentina and Venezuela. I have been studying many years in both countries in order to get two important degrees and a Master in Arts, Spanish Literature. Later on, I have been working all my life teaching Spanish at different education levels. Because of my long experience, I know how to work with teenagers and college students. Nowadays, language studies are aimed at giving students communication skills, and it is always important to have such skills handy if they're ever necessary. Students must know that each language has four important areas which are reading, writing, listening and speaking. All of them must be combined when someone wants to learn the selected language.

As for my methods, let me say that they can vary according with the student and his/her background knowledge of the language, his/her strengths and his/her weaknesses. Obviously, it will be necessary to test the student with a short evaluation before we begin our lessons. During my sessions, I focus on the auditory exercises, like videos or recordings, which have different accents (Spanish and Latin American) so that the student may become familiarized with all different types of Spanish.

I use to teach Spanish to many High School students in Sugar Land, Fort Bend District in Texas, so I know perfectly, the Fort Bend Syllabus for all the Spanish Levels. I can help students with vocabulary, grammar, reading, comprehension and writing papers in Spanish.

At the same time, I'm teaching adult students with an interest in learning Spanish, whether it be for their work or personal life. Their goals are different to the other students, so in those cases, our emphasis will be done over the communication and oral skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Literature

I am a literature teacher who loves to read and analyze the different texts. Literature has always been connected with the world's history and the human beings. Reading the world's literature can teach any student the way to understand the world we live in.

Spanish

There are billions of Spanish speakers around the world and they have some particularities that distinguish them one from the others. But, I think that is better to learn the original Spanish first and, after that, if students want to do it, they will be able to recognize some of the regional Spanish. I always reassure the practice of the four areas of language in my classes: reading, writing, speaking and listening. I believe that it is the most important method to learn a language.
