Hi, I'm David, and I'm passionate about Spanish. Like any language aficionado, you're never done learning. I'm an American from Boston and I've been at it for 23 years. I'm a unique teacher in that I began as a self-taught Spanish speaker. After developing conversation skills in the real world, I studied at U-MASS Boston with Professors Ildefonso Manso and Luis Alonso Ovalle, both from Spain. There, I excelled and strengthened my understanding of Spanish grammar. I maintain a 4.0 GPA. As a public service employee, I use my Spanish every day and therefore am never rusty. If I don't know the answer, I know where to find it through either my abundance of Native Spanish Speaking contacts, text books, and helpful internet sites that I'll share with my students.
My methods include a lot of "Listen and Repeat" to make sure the student owns the material. We will, though, have to put pen to paper depending on the students' desired goals, conjugating verbs and such. Most importantly - I WILL ADJUST TO YOU THE STUDENT - Which means if you have specific assignments or presentations due, we will work specifically on those and have fun doing it. You have a mind,ears,and the ability. Combine that with some desire and passion and you can do it.
Middle school, high school and college students would best benefit from working with me but I'm open to ANY AGES MIDDLE SCHOOL AND ABOVE. Even if you're not taking Spanish as a subject and just want to learn, I'm your guy.
Gracias por leer y vamos a empezar de aprender!
