I have always had a passion for teaching. Although I mostly tutored mathematics during my time in college I did also help my freinds out with their spanish. I believe I can provide an excellent service as I am a native spanish and english speaker. I also offer excellent flexibility in scheduling and costs.
I love working with people. The past year has definitely been tough working from home. As of recently starting work again in person has been the highlight of my year as I get to interact with my friends and co-workers face to face. If you choose Miguel's Spanish Tutoring I guarantee we will have a great working relationship that we can both benefit and learnfrom.
There were several times during my college career where I would go to Michael to proofread my Spanish essays. Instead of just reading them and correcting he would read along with me and help me understand some of the mistakes I would make. He is an easy going and amicable teacher and provides an enjoyable tutoring experience.
At first i like to establish teaching goals. During this step I like to ask the student what they want to achieve in the language, I also find out what areas of the language need fortifying. The second step would be to make a lesson plan.The third step is SUCCESS in the language.
I have been speaking Spanish for the past 20 years. It was my native language for so long. It wasnt until about ten years ago that i started learning English. Although my experience tutoring spanish is limited , I did tutor multiple math courses during college.
I usually charge $15 dollars per hour session.
I got started tutoring math and engineering courses in college as a means to have some extra cash on the side to pay off my studies. I only tutored math as a job but every once in a while I also assisted friends with their spanish.
I have mostly worked with college level students, but I am open to teach high school and middle school students.
Before the Pandemic began I was able to spend my 22nd birthday in Madrid. It was the first time I had ever been to Spain and this week long visit really inspired me to try and teach others the beauty of the spanish language.
The best advice I could give a student looking for a teacher is to find someone you are comfortable with and can get along. Teaching should be an enjoyable experience for both student and teacher.
My top three student questions are:
-What are some areas of the language that I am struggling with?
-How can I become better at mastering the language?
-How can a tutor help me advance my language skills?
