Bilingual Spanish/English Native Teacher; cover advanced grammar, vocabulary, slang, idioms, and culture

Methodology

I base my classes on practical and natural forms of communication; my motto is "think of yourself as a child learning how to speak". Ask yourself, "How you learned your native language". At first, it's not easy but this is the natural way to learn a language. It's obvious that we will use our developed knowledge in this approach but we will be conscious of the fact that our native language can become an obstacle in our task since we will have to try to avoid using translation, which is normally and naturally very tempting.

Background

I am an I.T. Engineer and a bilingual Spanish/English language teacher; I have lived in both the U.S. and Mexico very extensively being totally familiar with both cultures which is essential for applying the languages in a practical and natural form. I have a degree in Computer Science from ITESM in Monterrey, Mex. and diverse certifications as a foundation for teaching both Spanish and English. My experience involves having working as an I.T. specialist in renowned Mexican companies like Alpha Group, Protexa Industries and Vitro Corp... As an Engineer, I have retired but continue to work as a Language instructor conserving a great passion for providing Language acquisition to all who are interested in developing the skills.
