Interview with Rodolfo

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Rodolfo — I have been tutoring Spanish and English for the last 15 years.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Rodolfo — I am a college teacher working at Language Institutes and Universities, but I am also a Spanish tutor when the university I work for requires tutoring for large groups of Japanese adults.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Rodolfo — I have had many teachers and tutors but the one who inspired me was Mrs. Weston who used to do many diverse activities in one single class instead of just introductions; practice and general exercises. It was different from traditional methodology and put oral communication as the number one priority.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Rodolfo — Charismatic, knowledgeable, dynamic, supportive; making the student feel confident and explaining that making mistakes is normal and part of the learning process.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Rodolfo — I had a Chinese student who had only 4 months to start working for a university and had just taken a couple of levels of Spanish in his country. It was a challenge especially because the sounds in Chinese, Spanish, and English are very different. Some sounds do not exist in Chinese and they make one single letter into several sounds.
For instance, Letter E is pronounced in 7 diverse short-long-acute sounds. They do not have the sound 'p', so they mispronounce words such as 'pan' or 'purpose' and replace a 'v' sound instead. Also, she had difficulty with English as well as.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Rodolfo — Challenges are present in each class and with each student. Working with phonetics, vocabulary, and syntax are a priority in my class.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Rodolfo — I love working with technology. My classes don't need textbooks. I have my own website in which games and interactive activities are important. I enjoy using a flipped-classroom approach.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions:-P)?
Rodolfo — I am a native Spanish speaker with a Bachelor degree in English and the interest to learn other languages such as French, German and Italian. I feel Confucius is an emblematic representative of Chinese culture and universal philosophy. I love a saying I learned from a British writer, SAKI, H.H. Monroe, in a short story. He repeats this phrase: “Do it or Die”. This saying has to do with your endeavor if you want to reach your goals. I like to have my students repeat my own saying: “No brain, no gain”. Leaning a 2nd or 3rd language is understanding other people and their culture. In the case of English, it's universal, and Spanish is the number one minority language in USA.
In my own experience, the main difficulty faced by language learners is the approach used by the teacher or tutor. Communicative activities from the very beginning are fundamental. Grammar should be moved to a lower position in the process; getting communicative competencies started by uttering and repeating whole phrases (set phrases) and disregarding grammar as well as understanding the context is crucial. The intended meaning of phrases can be obvious or subtle. Word collocation is difficult even for native speakers. Traveling to the target language country is an added value to the process, but millions of ESOL students learn a new language every year around the world. My love for teaching and the enjoyment I feel makes me Superprof tutor.
