Published Novelist and Creative Writer for Spanish and English lessons in Canada. Online

Methodology

My teaching methods are focused on the appreciation of literature, music, and the cultures of Latin America. In my classes my students learn to express their personal feelings and acquire an extended vocabulary to engage in a coherent conversation. Students between the ages of 11 and 60 are welcome in my classes, and my students have the confidence that with my methods they are learning, practicing, and improving their language skills.

Background

I am a published novelist from Mexico living in Canada. I have published two novels and several short stories and urban chronicles in magazines in the US and Mexico. I have an Associate's Degree majored in Liberal Arts: Latin American Studies. I have also taken courses focused on Spanish Literature, Latin American history and arts, and Creative Writing. I have experience organizing cultural events, and I am a cultural activist. I am currently working on the translation of one of my novels into English, and fisnishing my fourth novel.

I have known Abraham for 5 years. During 3 years we worked together at the same school, where I was the class coordinator and Abraham taught English in grades 7 to 12. During that time he always showed a high sense of responsibility, as was clearly seen by his practically impeccable attendance and punctuality records through all this time. He always prepared his classes and materials and delivered all pertinent school documents on time. Abraham is a person who loves to teach and puts a lot of passion and enthusiasm in everything he does. I would strongly recommend him for this job or any other one which he wishes to pursue.

I've known Abraham for about four years. We were working together for a community college and he was always committed to work, proactive and very aware of the students performance. I remember we shared everyday experiences to get feedback from each other.

Abraham is an enthusiastic and passionate teacher who loves to see his students succeed. He is committed to ensuring that his students progress in both their written and verbal communications. As a fellow teacher, I recommended him to one of my colleagues and he has excelled as a teacher working with their China-based company. Abraham is a confident and capable teacher; I highly recommend him as an ESL teacher.
