I approach each assignment differently. I do my overall best to fit into what the student expects, depending on his teachers at school. If the teacher speaks only the target language in class, then that is what I will do in our lessons. I also believe that the student must do the work; my job is to assist with it, but not to do it for him(her).
I have 2 Masters Degrees from UMass, Amherst, with a concentration on Spanish and bilingual studies. I have taught all levels from elementary after school programs to middle and high school private and public schools to evening adult classes. I am totally reliable and expect the same from my students. We keep appointments, and should be fully prepared for all lessons.
There is a story I am proud of, that I believe shows the result of my endeavors. An adult student who had taken Spanish in high school many years before had been terrified of her teacher and could not learn. With me she felt comfortable and learned from the very first class onward. She said I made a difference in her life. My goal is to put the student at ease and make him(her) believe from the onset that he(she) is completely capable of achieving the best.
I have encouraged students to take field trips to places that insist on using the target language in conversation.
