Spanish, Literature and Art teacher. AP experience.

Hi, my name is René. I was born in Ecuador and I am a teacher, also a writer, and an artist.
I have more than 10 years of experience as a teacher and as a professor. I have taught Spanish and Latin American Literature, Art History, and Cinematography. In the past 2 years, I taught AP Spanish Literature and Culture and it was an amazing experience in which I got very good results with my students.
I studied Language and Literature and I have a Master's in Hispanic American Cultural Studies, which means we could learn the language while we explore everything you want to know about the Spanish-speaking world.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I like to share more than a normal class does. I have learned that a class is more interesting and productive when the subject is just a part of a bigger experience. Especially in a language class because every story, every cultural and artistic expression is made of it.
My lessons & teaching style
My classes would start by knowing what you like and what you need. I believe that personalized learning has better results than standardized methods. For example, If you like music, we could use music and I will show you the amazing singers and bands of Latin American music history while we practice Spanish, that way learning becomes a much more complete experience.
