My approach is communicative, student centered. This means that grammar and vocabulary are taught by means of meaningfull and relevant Input that is designed to develop the communicative competency. The four skills are practiced in every lesson: oral comprehenson, oral production, reading and writing.
I have taught students from different American Colleges, as well as high and middle school students, housewives, diplomats and other professionals. I design curriculum according to their specific needs and interests. My wide knowlwgde of Latin American culture allows me to create integrated lessons of language and culture.
