¡Saludos!Mi nombre es Arby. I was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, the most representative city of my country, my culture and my traditions. I'd like to share a bit about it while you learn and practice Spanish.
Ive been teaching for more than 20 years. I was fortunate to have taught in every level and every type of class. Ive had experience with very large groups (104 students in one class!) as well as individual online tutoring. Ive taught students of many different ages. My youngest were 3-year-old kids in preschool and my oldest was an 87-year-old lady at a private language school. It's never too late to learn!
I received a thorough training in Phonetics and Pronunciation, Grammar and Usage, Reading and Writing strategies and Conversational Skills for ESL. At the same time I was taking a Grammar class in Spanish. Therefore, as a native, I am able to explain the hows and whys of my own language, which makes it easier for my students to deeply understand and learn.
I consider myself a natural born teacher. Teaching has made my life a better one through what the students have taught me about life, about love, about caring, about sharing. I owe my students a lot.
