I prefer the communicative approach for general conversation. However I am flexible and am happy to focus on the needs of the individual and cater to their specific goals, whether it be to improve conversational Spanish, improve writing skills or reading comprehension.
I have lived and taught Spanish and English, in the United States, Colombia and Argentina. My students have ranged from middle school to college age and even some professionals. I am a trained Medical Spanish Interpreter and am currently enrolled in medical school here in the U.S.
