The primary objective of my teaching philosophy is to ensure that my students learn. I strive to present the material in my classes as efficiently and clearly as possible. Also, I believe that identifying the different learning styles of the student body is crucial. Moreover, I attempt to assess the different levels of general knowledge they have in all courses I teach, from Spanish language to socio/historical contexts. Finally, I aim to create a friendly and comfortable learning environment within the classroom.

Through these years of experience I identify some of the challenges that our students face and I even faced some of these challenges myself when I was a community college student.

As a college instructor I asses the knowledge base of my students and adapt my courses to meet those needs. Also, I provide them with personal attention and remain them that they have the ability to accomplish goals.
