About Darron

After 3 years of studying the Spanish language in high school, fluency in the language came as a result of missionary service in Bolivia for two years. It was in 2004 I was hired to teach Adult Conversational Spanish for the Flowing Wells School District here in Tucson through Flowing Wells Extension Programs, Inc. As demographics changed, I found myself teaching English Language Learner programs in conjunction with Spanish on behalf of the Hispanic community. This association has continued now for over 10 years. I have also tutored in Spanish on behalf of Prescott College where I have been able to provide one on one instruction to students in a conversational setting. It is the one and one instruction and interpersonal relationships that make tutoring so enjoyable.

What makes me a qualified English Instructor is as demographics have changed in terms of population growth of the Hispanic population, I have been able to step into the role of English instructor for a growing Hispanic community that is primarily monolingual. Being of Hispanic descent and familiar with the cultural norms of this ethnic group has also contributed to my experience in teaching ESL programs.

Early exposure to the Spanish language as a youth and missionary service of two years in Bolivia has qualified me as a fluent Spanish speaker. As a Spanish instructor and translator of over 10 years I have enhanced my qualification as a Spanish tutor.

I am a certified high school basketball official of more than 25 years with the Arizona Interscholastic Association. I have also coached basketball at the middle school level and been a Site Coordinator for the YMCA for 16 years.

I know I can be a valuable resource to those students who desire to gain greater understanding and acquisition of the Spanish language. I can best be reached by cell phone or text, as well as email.
