I have 12 years of experience teaching the English language and literature at the secondary level. I have also taught Spanish sporadically throughout my 12 years as an educator.
I am a very easy person to get along with, so I do not come off as a very strict person when it comes to learning. Yes, I have strong working ethics and give it all I have when it comes to teaching English. Yet, I also make the experience a fun one at that. My experience teaching English as a language and literature runs about 12 years. I taught at two major high schools in Los Angeles (Gardena High and Hollywood High). So, students that choose me will get their money's worth since I am an educator with a vast background when teaching English. I am also a huge speaker of Spanish. I grew up in Argentina when I was a child, so my Spanish is very fluent. When it comes to Spanish though, I can only teach conversational. Anyway, my experience in teaching a language is quite an experience!
