About Scott

Hi, my name is Scott Doyle and I finished my two years of United States Peace Corps service in Paraguay this month (September 2015). I am fluent in Spanish; read, write and speak. Natives to Paraguay speak Spanish. I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (SLO) in December 2012 with a master's degree in Environmental Protection and Management. After graduating from Cal Poly SLO I wanted to travel to a foreign country and help others in need, thus I joined the United States Peace Corps.

Now that I have returned home to Ojai, CA I have a strong desire to continue improving my Spanish and to pursue a career that involves speaking Spanish. I am confident in my Spanish and would love to help people in need in California improve their Spanish and share my worldly experiences from Paraguay.

I lived in Paraguay for two years. Spanish is the language spoken in Paraguay, thus I spoke Spanish daily and was fully immersed in the language. I rarely spoke English during my two years in Paraguay because I lived in a rural community by myself.

Please contact me if you want help with your Spanish or want any further information. I love speaking Spanish now given it was my primary language for the past two years. I am eager to help others improve their Spanish and am flexible with my schedule. I will do whatever I can to be available to you and your schedule. I look forward to hearing from you. Pura Vida. Tranquilopa.

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

I lived in Paraguay for two years from September 2013 to September 2015. I served as a USA Peace Corps volunteer and spoke Spanish everyday within my community. I taught English at the elementary school within my community. I taught to all grades within the school; preschool to 6th grade. I also took a Language Proficiency Interview for my Spanish during my last month of service and scored a Advanced Low.
