Hello there!!! My name is Yris and I have been teaching Spanish for about 14 years now. I am originally from Bolivia, and have been living in the US for several years.
I am able to teach any level of Spanish, but I have most experience teaching beginner students. I am a high school teacher, and I have been a College instructor in the past. I can offer tutoring at any level and at any age group.
If you are afraid of being too late to start learning a new language, you will see that with my classes I am not concerned of how many mistakes you make as long as you are willing to make them (pay attention to children when they are starting to talk, they don't care about grammar, they care about been able to communicate their needs).
For advance students who are looking to practice conversation, I do less spoken correction/interruptions, and write more in the chat for autocorrection. I might stop students if I see that one grammatical concept could be used more appropriately.
Students have their own interests when learning Spanish. My first class is free, and there I ask the student to tell me a little about their interest in learning/improving/practicing their skills in Spanish. Then, I suggest a working plan if student doesn't come with own plan.
¡Buenos días! i nombre es Yris y ojalá tenga la oportunidad de trabajar con ustedes en el aprendizaje de mi idioma. Ya llevo enseñando español por más de 7 años, a todo nivel, pero principalmente a nivel inicial. Repito mucho y me encanta ver cuando los estudiantes se auto corrigen.
He estado enseñando español por más de 7 años a todos los niveles, especialmente niveles iniciales.
Lo que busco en los estudiantes es que hablen mucho, por eso comienzo siempre con una ronda de preguntas y de acuerdo al avance que tengamos voy dándoles preguntas en los tiempos verbales que estamos avanzando.
El estudiante es el que pone la dinámica de la clase, por lo general muy informal pero con contenido gramatical.
A very friendly teacher who speaks clearly while always including new vocabulary and grammatical points in our conversations! Will continue!
Yris is a thoughtful and kind teacher who has a natural talent for listening to her students and offering helpful corrective feedback. She is always enthusiastic with a great sense of humor!
