Hello! My name is Dr. Ron.
I believe in the importance of learning a second language
. I learned to function as a career professional after completing an intensive Spanish
course in Costa Rica, earning the equivalent of two years of college level credits in one year. I know the struggles of language learning as an adult. The earlier one learns the easier and the better the fluency. With the Hispanic population being over 50 million and over 16 percent of the US population, Spanish is an increasingly important language and especially when you live in Texas.
Immersion is the best approach. I believe everyone can learn a new language. Age is not an excuse. President Jimmy Carter's mother was a Peace Corp worker and learned a language to work in India at the age of 70.
Everyone has a personal learning style. Some learn faster. Some learn better. Some become more fluent, but everyone can learn. Practicing speaking Spanish daily, as much as possible, is as important as learning important grammar
concepts and phonetic structures.
I have lived an worked in Central and South America for over twenty years. I have many friends in every country in the Americas where I have traveled presenting conferences to business
professionals. I have taught in an International High School as a substitute teacher for many subjects. I have taught Spanish-speaking business professionals to learn Business English
I am very familiar with preparing and training young people. While living in Thailand for four years, I staffed and implemented a cross-cultural, multinational training center. I also served as President/ Director of a Private Training Institute in Valencia, Venezuela for three years. I planned courses, scheduled professors, taught classes, and executed the graduations in the Spanish language. I also was an adjunct professor for another private school in the country. I have also served as an adjunct professor at Mid-Continent University and College in Mayfield, Kentucky, where I taught college level courses for six semesters. I have continued to use my teaching skills both overseas and in the USA.
I have a life experience that I believe will enhance the learning process of any student desiring to learn Spanish. I have successfully demonstrated work with personnel in over thirty countries and three global regions of the Americas, the Caribbean and Asia. I believe that I have the education, knowledge, skills, abilities and self-managing to execute the responsibilities that you require for the Spanish tutor that you are seeking.
I work best with teens, high school age, college age, and young adults. Sorry! I do not have much experience with younger children under age twelve.
