Teaching Approach

Standards lessons are provided on a individual basics (just you and your tutor).The lessons are customized to your particular needs. Online tutoring is something I have been doing for the past 7 years and I enjoy it a lot. I usually work on the student's speaking skills. The procedure is simple, but effective: either we both or one of us chooses (a) topic(s) which we discuss during the lesson. At the same time I correct their mistakes (grammar or vocabulary) and explain to them why something is wrong and what the best way to say it is. The topics are usually of general interest, such as Spanish culture and cuisine, etc. I am pretty much flexible with the topics, so you can choose a discussion topic as well.We could chat for free first so you can tell me what you would like to learn without any committment.

Teaching Approach

Mi metodo es ajustado a las necesidades de cada estudiante.. Hay quienes prefieren focalizar el aprendizaje del lenguaje en términos de situaciones cotidianas, otros preferirán estudiar la gramática y conocer las estructuras del idioma. Cada estudiante tiene una necesidad específica para aprender el idioma, ya sea por motivos laborales, o simplemente por placer o diversion. Mi objetivo es responder a la necesidad específica de cada estudiante.
