About Nick

Let's get ready to learn, I have been tutoring and teaching Spanish for the last 9 years. For three years I taught grades K-8 in Colorado Springs and I am licensed by the state of Colorado to teach Spanish. Currently, I am going back to school at DU to get my MBA and I work part time at an International School.

For me, Spanish was a gateway to traveling, climbing mountains, and experiencing other cultures. After taking a few years of French, a couple years of Latin, and four years of Spanish in high school, off to college I went to get my degree in Spanish and Communication Studies from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.

During my sophomore year I studied abroad in Valladolid, Spain. There I lived with a host family and volunteered at a local charity where I started working with a 15 year old boy who wanted to learn how to read. After my adventures in Spain, I returned to my studies and continued to expand my Spanish portfolio. Once I returned I started to work for the University Tutorial Services to help students prepare for their study abroad experience or to help students who were trying to fulfill their language requirements. At the same time I started teaching Spanish 1 and 2 to home school children in a nearby community.

Along the way I worked with the Migrant Worker Healthcare program for Keystone Health centers for a couple of years. There we went to different camps of migrant workers to perform health checks. I served as a translator between the nurse and migrant worker. In my last year of undergraduate studies, I worked for the Migrant Education Program. This involved giving the children of the migrant workers an opportunity to learn some English while their parents were working.

For my internship I went to San Juan, Puerto Rico to work as a volunteer at a Catholic orphanage. There I helped with homework assignments, tutored individual students, and organized after school activities. The social worker put me to work making phone calls for students who weren't showing up to school too.

For three years I taught Spanish to grades K-8 in Colorado Springs. Currently I am finishing up my International MBA at the University of Denver. Some of the Spanish countries I have worked/played in are Mexico, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Spain, and Ecuador.

As for some Spanish adventures...
During college, I went to climb Orizaba, the tallest mountain in Mexico. I was working for the Bloomsburg University's outdoor program,Quest, I served as the group's translator and organized logistics before the trip. Since then I have gone back to Mexico to guide some rock climbing in El Potrero Chico and do some translating for a private client. Two years ago I went to Ecuador to do some surfing and climb Cotopaxi.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have been working in a Harrison School district since 2011 and have worked with Special Education teachers to help students with ADD/ADHD. Also, I have helped write IEP's that were geared towards helping these students focus and be successful. I have tutored many students who have been diagnosed as having ADD/ADHD.

Business

I am an MBA candidate for 2016 from the University of Denver. I have worked in New Business Development for two adventure travel companies in the Denver area. I have designed sales and marketing plans and run the analytics for both of them.

Career Development

I have been working in Career Services since 2014. I lead workshops about resume editing, salary negotiation, and interviewing skills. In addition I do one on one resume reviews for job seekers.

Elementary (K-6th)

Currently seeking a elementary education position and waiting my endorsement from the Colorado Department of Education. Have a passing Praxis score of 180/200 for the Elementary Education Content knowledge exam.

ESL/ESOL

For three years in college I worked with an English Language Learners program. Most of the students were Hispanic and learning English and there was one Korean student. Through the after school sessions we worked on phonetics and organized other fun activities.

During my internship in Puerto Rico we had English Conversation classes after school where students worked on their English skills.

Macintosh

All throughout college I have used Macs to edit videos for Spanish projects. I have helped a lot of other people set up their macs to use widgets, sticky corners, and programs to sync email, calendars and contacts. In 2006, I got my first mac and I have not looked back since. I enjoy helping others master all the short cuts associated with Macs. As a teacher I use my mac for everything I do in the classroom and have a lot of good apps and widgets for the classroom.

Microsoft Excel

In business school, I live and breathe excel. I am able to use and set up solver, data analysis tool pack, and all of the statistical features included in the tool pack.

Phonics

During my teaching training program, I spent 4 weeks on literacy instruction and taught first grade for a four week summer program. During my training program we also had to complete literacy coursework during my first year of teaching which involved Saturday classes and incorporating literacy into instruction. In Spain I gave phonics lessons to a young struggling reader and currently teach phonics in my Spanish classes.

Praxis

In 2009 I passed my Elementary Education Content Knowledge Praxis exam and can tutor necessary subjects involved with the Elementary Education. Currently I work in an elementary school and teach a lot of the concepts that are involved in the test.

Spanish

Studied abroad in Valladolid Spain. Worked as a guide and translator in Mexico. Worked at an orphanage in Puerto Rico. Climbed mountains in Ecuador.

Special Needs

I have worked in a school since 2011 and have helped write IEP goals for students. I have worked closely with special needs staff at the school to meet accommodations in my classroom. Most of the students that I have had in class have had autism.
