"I grew up in Belgium and French was my first language. I am excited to be tutoring your students! I am married with a 2 year old son. We are involved in the youth ministry at our church, The Love of Christ, where I also serve on the worship team. I work in physical therapy at St. Francis hospital and now Community! 
Bonne journée,"

SPANISH I  
Course Prerequisites: None
8th grade and up.


Spanish Year 1 excellently presents acquisition, grammar and conversation skills. Stories, easy-to-learn strategies, detailed examples, and abundant application exercises promote meaningful use of the language. This Spanish course is a Comprehensible Input Spanish course, and we will use much TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling), interactive games and class activities reinforce the lessons.

In this course, our goal is to instruct the student in a way as to “acquire” the Spanish language. In our approach, the “acquiring” a language is very different from merely learning the rules of a language. Therefore, almost all of our class time will be spent using Spanish--not using English to talk about Spanish--and the focus will be on listening and reading with some speaking and writing instead of writing rules and copying words. Grammar and writing skills will come more naturally as the student takes in more and more Spanish by listening and reading.
