Hola, I am originally from Guatemala, Central America. I have taught Spanish in private schools in Los Angeles from Pre-school through High School, including Spanish-Honors, SAT II-Spanish preparation and AP Spanish. Besides the grammatical teacher training, I have also been trained in "The Natural Method" of language communication. I believe it is necessary to learn cultural behavior when we are going to interact with, or travel to a different country, so I enjoy including some of the colorful, diverse and rich every-day music, paintings, poems, tongue twisters, history, food and even art projects in my classes. In a small group, or one on one setting, it is easy to identify the styles of learning the student has, so I adapt to it. I love my culture and I love teaching, I like to laugh, smile, talk... but mostly I am looking forward hearing you speak and sing in Spanish to me.
Video & Sample Lectures:
"Teresa is an amazing tutor who taillors each class to specific questions and problems I have with Spanish. She has helped me understands aspects that I did not truly know from my college class. She is a true asset to your company."
"Teresa is an excellent Spanish teacher. Working with her is a pleasure. She is great about correcting you when you make mistakes while at the same time acknowledging and applauding one's progress. She is passionate, smart, interested, talented, and a gifted teacher."
"Seriously, Teresa is one of the best instructors (at any level) that I've ever had. I failed French miserably in high school and college (passing the language requirement by the skin of my teeth), yet with her I feel like I'm GETTING IT."
"Teresa really has a good handle on teaching the individual in the way that they learn best. She is patient and kind, but still manages to push you along. While I'm still very much a beginner, in 10 short hours I feel I have a good grasp on pronunciation and am starting to pick up on conversations I overhear. I totally recommend working with her!"
