About Daniel

Hello,

I have been teaching Spanish in the U.S. since 2002. I started in Robeson County, North Carolina, teaching Spanish to high school students. I also taught in a middle school in Raleigh, NC and I am currently teaching Spanish and pursuing the National Board Certification for Professional Teaching Standards in my subject.

I am passionate about teaching and learning and through the many years of experience that I have accumulated, I have been able to refine and personalize my teaching skills by keeping the best practices that work for my students and my teaching style as I continue learning the ever emerging new trends and technologies in language teaching and learning.

I have also worked as a Spanish teacher in the Virtual Public Schools of NC. I enjoy working with technology and trying new programs, apps, sites and devices to enhance the students' experience in learning Spanish.

I was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and I am married to a Colombian. We have two girls, four and two years old. I enjoy sharing my culture inside and outside the language class and enjoy learning from my students as I see them reaching milestones in their language learning journey.

My lessons provide intense, real and practical language learning. I target the four skills in learning a language (Listening, speaking, reading and writing). I use informal and formal assessments to gauge learning and figure out next steps.

I look forward to helping you reach your language objectives.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have been working as a licensed and certified ESL Teacher in Virginia (Henry County Public Schools) since 2009. My 4-year BA from Universidad de Guadalajara is in Teaching English as a Second Language. My method of teaching involves teaching the functions of the language through communicative activities tapping into students' ability to memorize vocabulary and sentence frames and also teaching the form/structure of the language through grammar explanation, analysis and practice. I try to balance the four language skills according to students' needs.

Spanish

I am a native speaker of Spanish.

I am currently pursuing the maximum certification a teacher can get which is the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
