Tutor Teaching Style
I find teaching very rewarding. I am a committed teacher and work hard to promote a good learning environment in the classroom. I always diversify my strategies and activities because I think the students' motivation is a springboard for their academic success. So, I try every time to develop a harmonious learning environment.
In a typical first lesson, I like to have an opportunity to know the student. I am flexible, so I want to meet the students to prepare my lessons according to students' desires.
I usually use the student's tastes to give them the independence to be inquirers earning experience and modeling good research and inquiry strategies that include critical evaluation of sources.

Diversifying the communication language and strategies and establishing connections with the natural world are part of my list of methods to overcome possible comprehension difficulties on the part of the students. Each student is different; therefore, the strategies depend on each student.
When a student struggles with reading comprehension, I don't have him read aloud much. I can read aloud so the student can hear me. I'm doing this reading and making interruptions to explain the meaning of the text.
The student needs to know that I care, which I do. Student needs to know what to expect from me and what I expect from them.
I am an Enthusiastic, resourceful, and goal-driven educator with a solid commitment to every student's social and academic growth and development. An accommodating and versa
Questioning. I ask frequent questions about the topic that we are covering.
Positive feedback is critical. The student needs to feel in what areas are improving.
It depends on the component. For example, generally, after speaking with the student, I give the student a writing assignment gives me the insight needed to assess these skills and grammar.
My model is to have a plan that the student feels comfortable and familiar with and knows I am always available to help. I always try to reinforce the teaching practice with the primary needs of the student.
There are many websites I like to use for Spanish and Portuguese fluency. I also want to use visual NearPod, ConceptBoard, PowerPoints, and Word docs.

Claudio was my Spanish teacher at ACS
International School of Doha around 2016/2017. 1 really liked Claudio as my teacher, and he made sure to understand his pupils and bring the very best out of the class. Claudio was always prepared for classes and would think of interesting assignments to make classes engaging, and help his students to be confident speaking a foreign language and not be scared of making mistakes. Very easy to work with Claudio, approachable, you can crack some jokes, and also ask for advice and help with homework. It matters to him that his students learned something in his classes, and he never raised his voice or took anger out on his students even if we misbehaved and made him angry. If I went to high school again, I'd like to have him as my Spanish teacher even though he is from Portugal. As an adult, I would like to work with him.
