My name is Devon, and if you need assistance in English
, or Spanish
, look no further! I am enthusiastic about helping students to become more adept in speaking, reading
, and writing
any or all three of these languages, regardless of a student's age or prior level of knowledge.
My experience with French and Spanish comes primarily from direct cultural immersion. I have studied French since I was six years old and have lived abroad with French-speaking host families in Montreal, Nice, and Montpellier. The summer after high school I moved to Antigua, Guatemala and lived with a Spanish speaking family. After I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2010 with a degree in Spanish and a minor in French, I taught ESL
classes at a literacy center in Austin to Spanish and French speaking adults who could not speak or read English. About a year ago I moved to Hong Kong and began working at a tutoring center; my classes were varied and I tutored students from 15 months to 15 years old in English. Depending on the age group of any given class, I worked with my students on grammar
, writing, literature
, and current events. I recently returned to Houston after a year in Hong Kong and am eager to begin teaching again.
I strongly believe in the effectiveness of learning one-on-one or in small groups. Whether my classes have one student or six, I make sure each and every person I teach receives personalized attention. I strive to make any subject I teach both interesting and accessible. Whether you want to learn a new language
or simply study your own in a more in-depth way, you are opening a doorway of communication. I can help you open that door more easily!
I look forward to hearing from and working with you,
