|Complutense University of Madrid||Madrid, Spain||Spanish||Doctor||2015|
I'm a passionate tutor of Spanish language. I'm currently working as a Spanish professor at St. Petersburg College and Florida Southern College. I offer Spanish classes at all levels and in different areas of expertise, and I’m also an experienced translator.
I hold a Doctorate Degree in Spanish Linguistics and Translation from the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain, with a CUM LAUDE distinction. I have been awarded two academic honors of “Golden Medal” in recognition of outstanding academic achievement with regards to my Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree in Spanish Philology.
Additionally, I have successfully completed various specialization courses and trainings in Spanish Language and Culture arranged by Spanishuniversities.
I have expertise in a variety of disciplines such as: Spanish Linguistics, Translation, Spanish Language and Culture, Latin-American Civilization and Spanish for specific purposes.
As a teacher, my philosophy is to provide students with a friendly and supportive atmosphere in order to help them boost their confidence in learning a new language. I feel that students can benefit from my first-hand experience of Spanish language and Hispanic culture. I am thoroughly familiar with the Spanish culture, since I lived in Spain for more than 4 years and during my stay in the multi-cultural Colegio Mayor Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe residence in Madrid, I’ve had the chance to acquire a vast knowledge of Spanish as well as Latin-American culture.
I am not the kind of teacher who believes in a single perfect teaching technique or is anchored to textbooks; I always struggle to find innovative ways that address the different needs of my students, spark their interests as well as stimulate their analytical and critical thinking skills.
My goal is to help my students to rise to their full potential, to transfer my passion and enthusiasm to them and to provide inspiration to fuel their pursuits.
So, if you are an elementary, middle, high school or university student trying to keep up with your classes, to raise your grades or to perform better on Spanish tests or an adult willing to become fluent in conversational Spanish, to learn Spanish for business, tourism or any other specific purpose, or to get acquainted with Spanish language and culture, we can devise a strategy that will fit your needs and wishes. If you want your child to become proficient in Spanish language, I will be happy to offer full immersion at home with fun and age-appropriate activities.
I will be glad to offer you an assessment session in order to understand your skills and needs and, thus, determine the strategy that will work best for you. I may also assist you with translation, editing and proofreading papers or documents for students or professionals.
I am available for tutoring every day at any hour, and I can travel to students or meet them online.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you in your journey toward a successful and rewarding career.
