University of Texas Spanish graduate, who used to live in Spain, gives Spanish lessons

Methodology

The first step in my teaching approach is always building a rapport with the student to create a safe learning environment in which they are comfortable making mistakes. Once that's established, I have found students to enjoy the process of learning a language much more. From that point forward, I find ways of giving students opportunities to connect with the language at a deeper level than just memorization. This means taking the time to go through examples until the student understands the feeling behind the grammatical concept. A couple of these examples include: aiding the student to draw parallels with a known equivalent in their own language, or a discussion of direct vs proper translations if the concept is more abstract. Additionally, I use techniques from my didactics and interpretation classes to help students create associations with vocabulary, etc. I have found this to be successful in helping them to begin to think in the destination language, rather than taking the extra step to translate before elocution. I also encourage students to practice using the accent of the language when speaking to the best of their ability.

Background

I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin who majored in Spanish with a specialization in translation and interpretation, and a minor in french. I completed a year long intensive exchange program for my upper division credits at a private university in Madrid, Spain. I've been tutoring for over 2 years now and have been studying foreign language for more than 10 years. Language is a great passion of mine, and I love to share it with my students. Together we can breakdown language barriers and bring the world closer together.
