I've a law degree from my country in international relations studies. I've been teaching in the elementary school, middle school and high school for more than four years in the districts of Passaic and Union. With my guidance you'll have the opportunity to learn at your own pace, whether your interest is to speak the basic language for a polite conversation, or at a college level to communicate effectively in any situation.

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.

Spanish

You will be introduced to the basics of the Spanish language, and to intermediate and advanced concepts as well. My lessons are specially designed for English native speakers and French speaking people. However all students from any background are very welcome.

After a few sessions you will be ready to keep up a conversation, which you can enhance as you take other lessons.

I can help you whether you are looking to have a polite conversation or to be able to speak in a high profile meeting.

We will travel together through the passionate language of Miguel Cervantes, Garcia Lorca and Garcia Marquez.
