About Phillip

I have a Spanish Linguistics degree, and I taught EFL in Guatemala for over four years. In Guatemala, I taught all ages, University of Landivar, private high schools/middle schools, language academies, and private lessons on my own to children and adults.

In most language classes, memorization and rote grammar is the way to go. I consider my method of teaching one of the best ways to learn a language. It has never failed, and you get to have conversations (at any level!) in your new language most of the class. I focus on conversations with me and/or partners in order to solidify a strong grammar base. This conversation-based class is then coupled with writing, reading, worksheets, and listening activities to bring everything together.

If receiving tutoring for a school class is your goal, I have had great success with that as well. I still use my base of conversation in order to learn whatever subject you are learning in your class.
