If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

Whether you want to learn English, Spanish, or one of the other topics I have listed on Wyzant, I am confident that with a bit of effort I can help you learn a language more than a classroom environment can. My personal focuses is on getting to a point where you start to think in another language and know how to communicate using it.

I have experience teaching English in Lisbon, Portugal, and have the Certification of Language Teaching To Adults (Celta) certification. I also have a wide array of workbooks in both English and Spanish. I want to get you speaking Spanish or English and have had great results with every single one of the students I have taught.

My focus is not on the rules of grammar, but rather on a practical approach to learning the most common items of a language first, but making the learning fun by speaking the language instead of just reading and writing it. I want to get you to Speak English or Spanish better - and to do so FAST by getting your brain to start to process language in the language you are speaking, not translating it from your native one.

I have been extremely successful teaching Spanish in the construction industry and am confident I could teach in companies, as well as individuals to get them communicating in Spanish in a very short amount of time...

Hope to hear from you!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Cooking

I worked for 6 years in catering and in 4 different restaurants. I also experiment frequently with many international cuisines while at home on a regular basis.

ESL/ESOL

I also have experience teaching ESL.

Spanish

I teach Spanish and have a focus on conversation and natural language learning. I think books can be useful but generally prefer to do exercises verbally (not written). I create lessons that are fun and involve the topics each student is interested in.
