As a Spanish language tutor, my methodology consists in reading stories, commenting them, and writing about them. I am also, a Latino American Literature teacher for advanced Spanish learners.

Methodology

I like to approach each topic from a reading story. This methodology allows the student to learn vocabulary, to process pronunciation, to get basic grammar and to speak and write about it. Each story is adapted to the student´s level and interest.

Experience

I have a BA in Comparative Literature and a Master in Linguistics. I have worked in English to Spanish translation and as an editor and copy editor in Spanish. I love reading and writing, and I am a blogger too.
