About Benjamin

Whether you want to learn English, Spanish, or one of the other topics I have listed on Wyzant, I am confident that with a bit of effort I can help you learn a language more than a classroom environment can. My personal focuses is on getting to a point where you start to think in another language and know how to communicate using it.

I specialize in working with adults or students who are not learning advanced grammar. I am particularly good at helping people improve their ability to speak. I have worked with top-notch CEO's and a wide variety of business professionals teaching them both English and Spanish. I can come to you, adjust to your schedule and get you speaking as fast. If you truly want to learn Spanish or English better and have a busy life I am the perfect tutor for you.

I have experience teaching English in Lisbon, Portugal, and have the Certification of Language Teaching To Adults (Celta) certification. I also have a wide array of workbooks in both English and Spanish but also recommend that students listen to podcasts as well to improve their listening.

I want to get you to Speak English or Spanish better - and to do so FAST by getting your brain to start to process language in the language you are speaking, not translating it from your native one.


Hope to hear from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Cooking

I worked for 6 years in catering and in 4 different restaurants. I also experiment frequently with many international cuisines while at home on a regular basis.

ESL/ESOL

I also have experience teaching ESL.

Spanish

I teach Spanish and have a focus on conversation and natural language learning. I think books can be useful but generally prefer to do exercises verbally (not written). I create lessons that are fun and involve the topics each student is interested in.

Great Spanish Tutor — I have been really pleased with Benjamin H. since he started tutoring my sons in Spanish. He is professional, punctual and knows exactly what the boys need to work on.
