I am a part-time teacher for elementary students. A semi-native speaker, I taught Spanish daily to grades 1st - 8th at a fantastic Charter school. I also had the blessings to live in Madrid for a few years, and that experience strengthened my Spanish. Further, I was able to assist non-native English learners in practicing their speaking and pronunciation.
My technique is to offer frequent of practice and introduction of vocabulary and conversation - frequently speaking out and practicing set dialogues where students can attain proper pronunciation and gain a good sense of the rhythm and syntax of the language.
Further, I like to utilize online methods to provide extra practice. As a teacher, I adapt my lessons to the type of learning each student displays and provide practices well-suited for the student.
After receiving my Elementary Education Certificate, I taught daily Spanish lessons for 8 years at a charter school, grades 1st through 8th, each with 32 students in a class. Many of my former students went on to study Spanish in High School and beyond. Learning the pronunciation and grammar at an earlier age, helped my students to master the language. I have seen a number of my former students and I am amazed how well they kept their pronunciation and how well they spoke Spanish. Living in the Southwest, knowing Spanish is a valuable tool that can mean extra compensation in many different lines of employment.
Further, I assisted non-native speakers to learn and practice English when I lived in Spain. It was more of a casual teaching experience where learners felt more comfortable and competent, especially with their spoken English.
