Hello, my name is Ben. I have always enjoyed learning foreign languages on my own, and helping others who have a thirst to learn to speak a second language themselves. I am currently working on a personal goal to learn the ten most spoken languages in the world.
My experience with both English and Spanish is varied. I lived in Mexico as a young man, in addition to my schooling for Spanish. In Mexico, I tutored English for a high school student. I have taught English as a Second Language for churches here in the US for two years, teaching the class both in English and Spanish. I have tutored both English and Spanish for high school students, here in the US as well.
When tutoring a second language, I prefer to tutor with a mixture of formal studying of coursework and conversation. My personal experience has taught me that a second language is learned best by immersion in the language to be learned. Learning to speak a second language should be fun and exciting, not simply a repetitive drudgery.
