My focus is on getting my students to feel comfortable with the Spanish language, so time is spent conversing and "warming up" with word games before lessons begin. My style is relaxed and I am very patient (as a mother of two you learn this skill!). Oral and aural skills are very important to hone, so time is spent listening to film and radio (transcription and translation) as well as reading newspapers. There is also a focus on grammar, learning how to use tenses and increasing vocabulary. I am a big believer in total immersion, as opposed to learning from a book, so my classes vary and are kept interesting and vibrant, depending on what the student requires.
I am a graduate of Hispanic Studies, have over 350 hours experience in language teaching and am passionate about all things Spanish and Latin American especially- art, film, literature and history. Although I am not a native speaker, I lived in Central and South America from a young age and returned many times over the last 20 years for study, work and travel.
