My name is Tom, and I'm a Spanish/ESOL tutor based in Salisbury, Maryland. I look forward to working with you to improve your knowledge of Spanish or English, whether for school, business, or cultural awareness. I'll tailor private lessons to meet your needs, and I'm flexible regarding format, location, scheduling. The passages below demonstrates skills I can offer students, and I am happy to elaborate where needed.
I took my Junior year of college at the University of Valencia in Spain to learn more about Spanish culture and linguistics. That invaluable experience supplemented the Bachelor of Arts degree I subsequently obtained from Salisbury University here in Maryland.
I have earned a certificate from Oxford Seminars and Johns Hopkins University to teach English to Speakers of Other Languages. I also am certified by WyzAnt to tutor English and Spanish grammar, proofreading, writing, reading, speaking, and listening skills.
I am retired from a 26-year job at the Department of Defense as a Spanish analyst and mid-level manager. This job required fine-tuned verbal and written communication skills in Spanish and English.
In addition to tutoring, I work as an on-call simultaneous interpreter for Latino physical and occupational therapy patients at local hospitals.
