Spanish Course, from a Native Spanish speaker. I posses a Master of Arts in Teaching Spanish. I teach a student-centered with multi-sensorial strategies and cultural classes.

Methodology

I am a passionate and fun Spanish Professor. I love languages and cultures. I am fluent in English and Spanish, proficient in Portuguese and posses a basic level of Japanese. My classes are geared toward students who want to become fluent in Spanish, either in Day-to-day Spanish or Business Spanish, and also knowledgeable about the culture of some Spanish speaking countries, the grammar and structure of the language.
My classes begin with a warm up. Then comes the introduction of the class (let it be the functions to apply in everyday, a grammar point, a business niche market, or many more). This is follow by the body of the class. The body of the class is intertwined with receptive activities (listening, reading or watching) and productive activities (oral conversation, writing and or acting), this is a hands-on approach.
At the end, there is a closure, it is an activity in which the student has the opportunity to produce information ir order to sink in the information taught throughout the class.

The most important factor for me is the students’ learning, motivation, and engagement. I make my best effort for the students to say “wow” at the end of my class. I try to make my classes fun, this makes the students feel good about the class and increases their performance.
I utilize the first five minutes of my classes for introducing my students into the Hispanic culture, interweaving the culture with grammar points we have studied or that we are going to see and with associations of the student’s cultures and previous knowledge in order to make a link.
Additionally, I am committed to integrate the technology in my classes; utilizing websites (for example: thinklink.com) to dynamically present a culture class. I also utilize the technology for other purposes: to show videos (youtube), to make a group competition (kahoot.com), to teach an inverted class, to reinforce the speaking skill with an individual class.

Background

Master of Arts in Teaching Spanish: pedagogy, linguistics and literature and a Master of Arts in Management. Spanish Instructor in Northern Arizona University, Spanish Teacher in Jefferson Prep High School and Spanish Online Facilitator at University of The West Indies.

He has dedicated his professional life to teach others who are looking to improve their language skills in the business world.

Profesor Paul and I studied together in graduate school. The program he completed there was a very in-depth, extensive, and high-quality preparation for teaching Spanish. He taught university-level classes there during his studies. Students loved him for the way that he would make class interesting each day by spontaneously incorporating music, stories, and culture into his lessons. Profesor Paul and I prepared lessons together many times to use in our classes. His firsthand knowledge about Venezuela and other South American countries was always useful as we created fun and engaging lessons for our students.
