Certified Spanish Teacher (Langhorne, PA) with 15 years of experience who Lived in Spain (Madrid)

Methodology

My teaching approach is mainly focused on the individual needs and abilities of my students, attuned to their skill level and catered to be of interest and use to them in their journey of language learning. In my opinion, if what you are learning does not spark joy, curiosity, or wonder, you probably will not be very proficient at learning it.

Background

I am an American, native speaker of English, who has studied Spanish for over 20 years in academic and real world settings. I went to Boston University on a near-100% scholarship where I studied Spanish among other subjects, and studied abroad in Spain for a full academic year before returning to work in Madrid after graduation. Since then, I have become a certified Spanish teacher in Philadelphia, PA & returned to Spain numerous times for work opportunities teaching Spanish to high school students.
