Detailed Profile in English

About me

Hola, thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

My name is Patricia. I was born in Mexico in a multicultural borderline city with the United States. My native language is Spanish; I also speak English fluently and I am currently studying French. I studied and lived in the United States, Mexico and China. I thought for many years in both languages to children from ages two (in China) to adults (in Playa del Carmen, Mexico), as well as my own children (home-schooled). I am also a certified yoga instructor. I love teaching and I hope to share my passion of languages, traveling, people and cultures with you.

Qualifications & Experience

I am certified as a bilingual/ESL teacher from the University of Texas at El Paso. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master in Education 'With Emphasis in Math and Science'. I took the Spanish Proficiency Interview in Texas with a score of 'level of 3 or above', the highest score. I have taught pre-kinder, first, second and fourth grade in Spanish as well as English in the United States. I also worked as a home-bound teacher for at-risk high school students, in the language of their preference. I taught English as a second language to adults (reading, writing, listening and speaking) in a community college. I worked in a university in China teaching English conversation to engineering students and also private and online Spanish and English classes in Mexico.

Teaching Approach

My approach is individualized according to each student's needs. I believe that everyone can learn! I provide a safe environment where students can feel comfortable in experiencing the learning of a new language. I listen carefully, making a teacher-student connection, making the most of every minute and making the class interesting and fun.

Patricia is thoughtful and organized! She was very conscious of helping me work on areas that I need help with. She offered me several options such as conversation or grammar exercises and was right on time with our lesson. Highly recommended!

Pati is very kind, patient and easy to converse with. Her corrections never feel harsh, only encouraging.
