About Todd

I've been studying Spanish for more than 20 years! My love and passion for the language inspired me to move to Madrid, Spain. I immersed myself in the culture and lived with a Spanish family who spoke no English. I enrolled at Autonomous University of Madrid and studied Modern History of Spain. I love to engage learners of all ages! My love of Spanish is infectious! I empathize with students who are struggling with learning a foreign language and help to make it relevant to their life experience.
I've worked for Stanford University's Online High School for many years. As a result, I have a unique perspective on the rigorous demands of pre-collegiate students who strive to excel. I bring individualized attention to each student and work to find a teaching method that fits their needs. I welcome all students, regardless of circumstance. I'm an outstanding tutor and mentor. I look forward to hearing from you!
