« As one of Damián's former colleagues in the Spanish department at Rockhurst, I can attest to his passion, knowledge, and skill with the Spanish language. He has a great understanding of word's connotations, and his passion for the language and its speakers' culture was always admirable. He will make the subject interesting and enjoyable for students, and he will help them appreciate Spanish as a way to connect with new people and their cultures. »

Spanish major in Kansas City Metropolitan area with 20 years experience speaking English and Spanish!

Methodology

Repetition is the mother of all learning. I chose this methodology because it emphasizes drill work in order to make answers to questions instinctive and automatic. New forms are first heard by students, with written forms coming only after extensive drilling. The language used for these drills is based on what is required for practicing the specific form; it might or might not be natural.

Background

I have a degree in Spanish from Rockhurst University and learned about various cultures within Latin America and other Spanish speaking regions all over the world. I possess the skills in order to teach another person the language in fun and unique ways through various types of media.

Damián's resume

To whom it may concern,
My passion is driven by my desire to continue learning and thriving. Speaking Spanish has been my way of connecting with people from various backgrounds. My time at Rockhurst achieving my Bachelors in Spanish will benefit me for life.
I’ve worked in various fields related to tutoring: I was a tutor in high school and I tutored in the Learning Center at my University. I am passionate about the language and strive to use it in my day-to-day life.
I am a firm believer in life-long learning and believe that I can grow from my time as a Tutor with SuperProf. As a result, my work will benefit the company and maintain good relationships with clients and driving repeat business in the area as well.
Thank you for your consideration. I welcome any time requested in order to discuss the position further.
Sincerely,
Damian Lara

I worked with Damian in the healthcare setting. He is caring and helpful and always smiling. Countless times he has helped myself and other coworkers translate in Spanish. Honestly, I might even try having him as MY tutor in the future!
