I have been teaching private and group Spanish lessons since 2001. I have loved helping my students in creating a lifelong love of the Spanish language and culture in promoting interest in the subject by doing interactive learning activities and in facilitating positive comprehension of the outstanding benefits of being bilingual. I have two masters' degrees --a master in education and a master of arts in teaching Spanish. As an expert in teaching Spanish, I look forward to helping students achieve their goals, and I welcome them to the Spanish language world. My teaching style involves dedication to facilitate discovery of each learner's potential through patience, support, respect, care, and a positive learning atmosphere. My teaching experience encompasses a variety of settings, such as school, college, business and health-care organizations. My students have gone on to develop a love of Spanish language and culture to the point of traveling to Latin America or Spain. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences, and as time goes on, you'll be able to use more appropriate vocabulary and forms to express your ideas in Spanish. I love working with students of all Spanish language levels, as follows: beginners, intermediate and advanced levels.
