Hello Second Language Student:

My name is Donald and I graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor's degree in Spanish. I returned to East Carolina University to earn a Master's in Adult Education and gained 18 graduate semester hours of Spanish credit while completing the program.

Experience teaching Spanish at the elementary, high school, and community college levels is complemented by trips abroad to Venezuela, Honduras, and Mexico. In Honduras and Mexico, I served as an interpreter for missions teams. Those experiences were culturally enriching and added excitement to knowing a second language in the real world.

Current experience includes working as a Spanish tutor since late 2006 and actively speaking with others who know Spanish as natives or are learning it as a second language. I prefer practical hands-on learning activities rather than rote textbook knowledge. The client's needs come first!

I look forward to hearing from you and improving your Spanish in a dynamic and active role.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a patient, well-rounded tutor with several years experience tutoring elementary and middle school children. I enjoy working with math, science, social studies, and English. Seeing students understand and gain confidence is rewarding.

Elementary Math

I have experience tutoring elementary and middle school children in math concepts. I enjoy solving word problems, and helping the students understand. Confidence in math is important for every student and I want to help them to reach their potential.

English

Having learned Spanish as a second language in college greatly strengthened my English skills. The concepts of grammar and language structure are improved in learning the second language. Teaching ESL and working with students of all ages have increased my ability to help others.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English as a Second Language to Spanish speaking clients and relate well to Hispanics. My experiences in Venezuela, Honduras, and Mexico added cultural awareness and respect for new cultures.

Reading

I have several years of experience as a reader/evaluator with an educational company in Charlotte. I relate well to all ages and levels of readers and can help with your reading comprehension.

Spanish

I have a B.S. in Spanish from East Carolina University. I have 18 graduate semester hours of Spanish classes completed beyond my Bachelor's degree. I have experience in Venezuela, Honduras, Mexico, and am proficient to tutor any level of Spanish.

TOEFL

I have taught English as a Second Language to Spanish speaking clients and relate well to Hispanics. My experiences in Venezuela, Honduras, and Mexico added cultural awareness and respect for new cultures.

Students don't have to lose their reading edge during the hot summer months. One key is the selection of books that intrigue or interest the reader.

Spanish students often wonder when they will be using their learned skills in the real world. It's not as hard as you think it is. For example, there are Hispanics in the community who are more than willing to communicate with you. You have to make the first effort to speak with them though. If you see someone who is speaking Spanish at your local supermarket, you can can just start off with... read more
