Bloomsburg University (Spanish)
University of Denver (MBA)
Let's get ready to learn, I have been tutoring and teaching Spanish since 2002. For three years I taught grades K-8 in Colorado Springs and I am licensed by the state of Colorado to teach Spanish. My specialty is helping students who are confused and bringing them up to speed. My goal is to empower students and help them think critically as they learn to get them to a point where they don't need me.
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 student 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 worked for the University Tutorial Services to prepare students for their study abroad trips and help students who needed extra support taking their first foreign language. At the same time I started teaching Spanish 1 and 2 to home school students 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 an orphanage. There I helped with homework assignments, tutored individual students, and organized after school activities.
For three years I taught Spanish to grades K-8 in Colorado Springs. 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 rock climbing in El Potrero Chico and translate for a client. In 2014, I went to Ecuador to do some surfing and climb the mountain Cotopaxi.
In 2016, I received my International MBA from the University of Denver and I currently work as a revenue assurance analyst. In my role, I get to use my Spanish to coordinate billing contracts with Latin America. Let's get ready to learn, I have been tutoring and teaching Spanish since 2002.

Nick met with my son twice before a test, and really helped get him comfortable and confident with the material. He has a nice way about him and We plan to have him back.
Thank you Nick!
Nick is a great tutor. He has a very easy demeanor and the ability to engage our son in the subject matter.
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.
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.
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.
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.
