Hello. My name is Michael and I've studied and taught Spanish in a variety of settings for ten years. English is my first language. I have traveled to many places where Spanish is spoken and can offer assistance in any of the following modalities: reading, listening, writing and speaking. I have graduated from two very prestigious language schools and have the credentials if desired. I've tutored children and adults as part of volunteer work I did in California and Texas through their public libraries.
Spanish is an extremely fun language to learn and practice. I like to have fun while tutoring but I am also very focused on ensuring that whoever I am working with is aware of additional resources they can use on their own. All you need to start is a pen and spiral notebook. I use dry-erase boards and various technology formats to communicate learning objectives. If you are looking for initial language acquisition or just want to brush up a bit I can certainly help you.
I routinely use Spanish within my day-to-day life. I have completed language instruction at various universities and truly enjoy seeing others achieve their language goals. I also hold a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and am fluent in various dialects.
I have worked as a linguistics interpreter and translator for over a decade. I have assisted and instructed in both English and other foreign languages focusing on intonation, pitch, tone, stress and rhythm. Additionally, I competed in active debates both in high school and college. I also tutor extensively with immigrants studying for the naturalization test. I use a combination of instructor-led exercises as well as individual discovery exercises focused on increasing both passive and active vocabulary for students. I hold two Bachelor's degrees and a Master's degree.
Excellent Tutor! — Mike was exactly what we were looking for in a Spanish tutor. I was amazed at how much our child learned in the first session and how excited my child was to learn Spanish. This was due to the teaching techniques Mike used. After Mike had finished the tutor session, Our child wanted to speak Spanish the rest of the day with us. I Highly recommend him as a tutor, for both adults and children. ...
