About Carlos Z.

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile, I can’t wait to help you learn!
** Lee mi información en ESPAÑOL en la parte de abajo **

My name is Carlos, I’m originally from Mexico but I’ve been living in Texas for the past 10 years. At the moment, I am able to teach you at your home (within 10 miles of North Central San Antonio), at my Private Classroom in San Antonio’s Stone Oak area or wherever you are online.

I have been teaching and in the education business for 17 years now and I absolutely love helping people achieve their learning goals. The satisfaction I get from teaching and seeing my students thrive is unparalleled and keeps me going.

Over my years in education, I have had the privilege of teaching students of different ages, backgrounds, needs and abilities:

I have 5 years of experience teaching early childhood, children from just a few months to 5-year-olds, this is a great time to start acquiring a second language as it comes naturally and effortlessly. I also taught for two years at an elementary school, where I had the opportunity to teach every grade.

I have tutored and mentored high school and college students on research projects for competitions where my mentored teams have always won.

A main focus of my professional career has been training professionals on foreign languages and the efficient and effective use of a second language or even their own language through grammar, spelling and professional writing.

I teach my classes using a natural approach, I try to get my students to a comfortable level with a subject so that learning becomes a joy, rather than a task. To achieve this, I use my students interests, humor, and my passion for culture and traveling to create my lessons. My lessons are created to engage you, no matter what type of learner you are.

I am able to send additional complimentary materials (practice sheets, audio/video reinforcements) as needed to enrich your learning experience.

Let’s get you started on your learning journey, I’ll do my best to make you an independent learner soon!

Mi nombre es Carlos, soy originario de México pero he estado viviendo en Texas durante los últimos 10 años. Por el momento, puedo enseñarte en tu casa (a menos de 10 millas del centro norte de San Antonio), en mi aula privada en el área de Stone Oak en San Antonio o donde sea que estés en línea.

He estado enseñando y en el negocio de la educación durante 17 años y me encanta ayudar a las personas a alcanzar sus objetivos de aprendizaje. La satisfacción que obtengo de enseñar y ver a mis alumnos prosperar no tiene paralelo y me mantiene en marcha.

Durante mis años en la educación, he tenido el privilegio de enseñar a estudiantes de diferentes edades, antecedentes, necesidades y habilidades:

Tengo 5 años de experiencia enseñando en educación temprana, desde niños de pocos meses hasta 5 años, este es un buen momento para comenzar a adquirir un segundo idioma, ya que es natural y sin esfuerzo. También enseñé durante dos años en una escuela primaria, donde tuve la oportunidad de enseñar en cada grado.

He sido tutor y mentor de estudiantes de preparatoria y universitarios en proyectos de investigación para competencias donde mis equipos siempre han ganado.

Un enfoque principal de mi carrera profesional ha sido la capacitación de profesionales en idiomas extranjeros y el uso eficiente y efectivo de un segundo idioma o incluso su propio idioma a través de la gramática, la ortografía y la escritura profesional.

Enseño mis clases con un enfoque natural, trato de llevar a mis alumnos a un nivel cómodo con la materia para que el aprendizaje se convierta en una alegría, en lugar de una tarea. Para lograr esto, utilizo los intereses de mis alumnos, el humor y mi pasión por la cultura y los viajes para crear mis lecciones. Mis lecciones están creadas para envolverte, sin importar qué tipo de alumno seas.

Puedo enviar materiales complementarios adicionales (hojas de práctica, refuerzos de audio / video) según sea necesario para enriquecer tu experiencia de aprendizaje.

Comencemos esta aventura juntos, ¡haré todo lo posible para convertirte en un aprendiz independiente pronto!
