Tutoring Approach

What is my bases of Language learning? My bases of Languages learning focuses in the widely tested thesis that the Language are learned by context. Based on it, the centre of learning becomes the student and his interests. The Spanish Language becomes the vehicle of expressing these interests, so learning it becomes easy and fun, as when we were toddlers and learned our mother tongue. Grammar and writing is something that my students learn after this natural process.

What is my bases of Philosophy learning? Philosophy is something that could seem really difficult for secondary students, but in fact could be funny if we can put in the centre of the study the philosopher text and connect it with everything that matters to young people, like music, the future, the university, the love or the friendship. Sure it is better study the great philosopher of the world through their text directly and connect it about young people, instead to study great and difficult theories that they can't understand or they aren't interested about.

What kind of tools do I use to put it in practice? I am a fan of the new technologies. I believe that its implementation is really great for the learning of children and adults. I think it's true in all the subjects, but specially in Language studies. So the used of videos, tablets, apps, audios etc. in my classes are very common. I addition the young people love it, so it is double motivation for him.
