School of Basic Oral and Written Communication Staff
I hold a PhD in Humanities, a master's in Mexican Literature and a bachelor's in Spanish Literature. I have been a teacher for over twenty years in these areas. I am currently the Coordinator of the School of Basic Oral and Written Communication within the Language Department at ITESO. I work in the areas of teaching, coordination and investigation, as well as in university studies and academic literacy.
The students and teachers I work alongside with are what drive me. I firmly believe that academic activities should not be separated from the human condition—recognizing others, respecting and empathizing with them will determine any formative aspect.
I hold a bachelor's degree in Philosophy, a master's in Linguistics and a PhD in Humanities. I have been a teacher in these areas by vocation for over 15 years. I adore reading and writing and conceive reading, writing and oral communication as powerful tools for learning and developing critical thinking. I enjoy helping students find the logic of the texts they face, as well as showing them the way to structure their ideas for written production.
I am Minerva Ochoa, teacher by vocation, life-long reader and linguist. I truly enjoy the formative work in the areas of language, communication and literature. I am convinced that learning to speak, read and write correctly and appropriately for various contexts is learning to think and reflect better.
I really appreciate working in tutoring because it is a modality in which personalized attention can be offered and a team with common goals can be formed with each applicant. In addition, I really like to design environments and activities that generate learning and solve specific difficulties.
