I have graduate degrees in Spanish, Education, and Communication, and understand that learning and teaching requires a team. Teamwork is best established one-on-one, and as a team you will benefit from my teaching experiences in Europe as well as the Americas, and I shall benefit from your unique experiences and needs. Together we shall discover the best route to achieve your goals. TEFL certified to teach English as a second language.
The growth of both teacher and student during the learning and teaching process...
Thanks to Steven, my son, a senior in high school, has raised his Spanish grades from mediocre Cs to mostly As. Steven has patience, excellent communication skills. and has no problem holding a young student's attention and interest. Difficult concepts, like verb conjugation, suddenly made sense (even to me, as I watched a lesson or two), and his utilization of Spanish ballads--music--helps make his sessions come to life.
My English improved significantly, now I can communicate better, thanks Steven !!
My husband and I are medical professionals. We deal with many Spanish speakers, and have help at work, but were tired of always being left out of the loop when treating Spanish-speaking patients. Steven's hands-on, one-on-one approach has helped us tremendously. He says that complete immersion in the culture is the fastest way to learn, yet, if you don't have time for an extended trip, Steven is your next best bet!
My kids absolutely loved him. He was right down to earth with them and related to them on every level. He makes them laugh while learning!
1) Understand your unique needs and goals.
2) Determine the tecniques (verbal, visual, interactive, artistic, etc...) most suited to your learning strengths and requirements.
3) Practice, practice, practice, with a combination of reading, writing, and communication tools to ensure rapid results.
