Language Trainers allows me to teach anywhere I live!

What language do you teach and why did you choose teaching as your career?

I teach Spanish and chose teaching as a career because I viewed it as a fantastic second job. Also, if a person has experience teaching Spanish, they may be able to combine various forms of experience.

Where did you study, and how long have you been teaching?

I studied at the University of Nebraska, at Kearney, and at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska. I have been teaching for nearly two years and the age group I usually have taught have been adults over the age of 18.

What do you look for in a student?

I like a student who is positive about wanting to learn. I especially like a student who makes an effort to learn, and also understands that what they learn is not only up to the person teaching them, but also up to their own efforts and what they want to get out of learning.

What should students expect in you as a teacher?

Students should expect me to know how to teach a class. I don’t think it is unreasonable to have a teacher who may not know every little bit of information about the subject material, but a keen knowledge should be expected. In any case, there are times in which I have learned from my students rather than the relationship being the other way around.

Describe your favorite aspect of working for Language Trainers:

My favorite aspect of working for Language Trainers is that it allows me to continue to add experience to my teaching credentials anywhere that I live. I am in a career in which I have to move from place to place periodically, and it’s nice to have the experience and connections. The program is really a fantastic one for someone looking for part-time supplemental experience.
