My name is Alexander Cordoba; I am 35 years old. I am an honest, enthusiastic, innovative, committed, passionate and friendly language professional aimed at helping others out by using those skills God has provided me with; it was why I became a professor.
I hold a Bachelor Degree in Modern languages (English and French Teaching Methodology)
A Master Degree in English Teaching Methodologies
A PhD in Modern Languages Literature and Translation with emphasis on TEFL
Thus, I speak Spanish (native Language), English, French and some Portuguese.
I am currently a full-time tenured Professor at a university level, with vast experience in teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) to teenager, young and adult students (more than ten years).
A very attractive and appealing teaching plan is created aimed at helping my tutored meeting their personal language learning goals and objectives. The main components of the target language to enhance, include: the four communicative skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), but special attention is also given to grammar structures, pronunciation, intonation, spelling, exam and test preparation etc.
As indicated earlier, I am a very committed professor who is always striving for encouraging and motivating leaners for a better learning experience. I strive continually for excellence.
I wholeheartedly love teaching English to teenagers, young and adults, as well as training people in the field of language professional development.
As a teacher I am not committed to forming and training my learners at a professional language level only, but at a personal one as well, I strive for encouraging them all to become better professionals as well as better citizens to successfully survive within this globalized and challenging world we are moving in today. I firmly believe that personal commitment and discipline are the keys to success, that’s why I am friendly open-minded tutor but yet, responsibility and punctuality to me is one of the most outstanding factors, at the time of teaching.
If you take your English classes with me, you will for sure, have innovative, motivational and enjoyable sessions. Just take my classes for you to see my level of professionalism and commitment.
During the spanish sessions, the four language skills will be interrelated in an integrated constructivist-communicative approach whereby the lessons should ideally incorporate listening, speaking, reading and writing, by fostering through this same vein:
• Key ideas, including cultural, cross-cultural learning activities
• Linguistic – vocabulary and grammatical structures
• Viewing and Listening comprehension
• Speaking including intonation and pronunciation
