Spanish tutor with 10+ years of experience writing, editing and reporting Spanish stories for radio, TV and digital platforms.

Methodology

I let students use their creativity. I usually use board games, word search, scramble sentences or fun activities to make students think logically and to reinforce vocabulary and grammar and according to age. I try not to speak English unless is 100% necessary. Students have the opportunity to practice oral and written activities.

Experience

I am a bilingual Journalist and Broadcaster with a background in education. I have taught elementary, middle, and high school students in private Catholic schools and undergraduate students in college.
Spanish is my mother language so I have no foreign accent.
