Spanish Teacher from Mexico with DELE certification, 30 years experience, Vancouver area. For all levels and ages.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is communicative. I create activities in order to use the language in realistic situations. The grammar and the vocabulary is only a tool. I don't focused only on these aspects. It is more relevant to practice and use the language.

Background

Hola I'm from Morelia, Mexico, I have been teaching Spanish as a second language in Canada since 1995. I'm a certified DELE examiner for levels A1 to B2. I love to motivate my students to use and love the language. I have prepared students for AP and SAT Tests as well.
