About Duffy

I spent 13 years in Madrid, Spain as a teacher of English as a Second Language and a professional flamenco dancer. During that time I became bilingual in Spanish and very fluent in Italian. I've prepared dozens of students for proficiency exams and sent countless others to the next level in their speaking fluency.

The most gratifying part of my being a teacher is seeing the success and confidence of my students go to the next level and, I always learn something I didn't know before!

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.

TEAS

I've recently returned from Madrid where I spent 13 years as a teacher of English as a second language. During that time I tutored dozens of students in preparation for the many official exams. I've become very efficient at troubleshooting and expediting the learning process thus giving the student more confidence in their overall knowledge and command of the language while taking their exam performance to the next level.
