I am a Native New Yorker who has been speaking (reading & writing) Spanish for more than 30 years. I am an experienced Spanish & English language tutor. Not only will you learn vocabulary, pronunciation, sentence structure and verb conjugation but I am able to explain the rules of grammar in both languages. I love tutoring and am working on becoming a licensed teacher. I love languages and so will you!
