A native New Yorker and Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who served in Paraguay for over 2 years.

Methodology

My teaching method varies per student based on their personality, experience, and strengths in language learning. Lessons may vary from vocabulary and pronunciation practice, immersion into conversation practice or grammatical reading comprehension. Lessons will lean toward students passions in specific areas or subjects in order to enhance the learning process.

Background

A public service professional that prides himself on dedication, reliability, teamwork, and leadership-- with local, national and international experience. A student who spent over 10 years studying the Spanish language and over 2 years of living & working in Latin America (Paraguay and Peru). An effective teacher that knows the best methods for English speakers to master the Spanish language both grammatically and conversationally depending upon their personalities and cognitive skills.
