As I teach with love and I create a fun environment for students (using games to practice the language), students become involved and interested in the classroom. I have also tutored one-on-one and I prepare a lot of different activities for the class and exercises for the student to be able to practice the language when I'm not there. I encourage watching TV news programs to practice listening comprehension and the use of flash cards in order for the student to memorize some short phrases. I have been teaching Theology for 30 years. I studied at the Opus Dei and at the Argentine Catholic University I have tutoring children and adults for 30 years. I teach Spanish, ESL and basic French. I prepare exercises, activities, flash cards and reading materials. I adjust to the student's curricula and schedule. I have been teaching TOEFL for 30 years, I train students in the areas of reading, writing, grammar and structures and listening comprehension. I have teaching kids from 1st. to 6th. grade and from 10th to 12th grade. I have certification 29, which is the one that is necessary to teach bilingual education. " less...
