I teach with the student in mind. Learning a foreign Language in this era is key to success in a global market. Language is learned not just by studying and memorizing lists or words, it is mastered by doing it. I teach to the student’s abilities and learning styles, and don’t mind reteaching until the idea or concept is learned. Language learning is proven to be a problem solving skill, not just a nice thing to know.
I earned my BA in Spanish and studied abroad for a year in Italy as an undergraduate student. I have earned 27 credits towards my Masters of Science in Education.
I have taught High School Spanish and French as well as University level Spanish 1-4 and French 1. I have also been a tutor for adults and children, in Italian, Spanish and French. I taught English to Italians and was an ESL tutor for a short term position last year.
I ran Spanish Club at the High School level and was a facilitator of SUNY Cortland’s Spanish Club during my time there as an adjunct instructor.
