¿Cómo está? Soy Mr. G a sus órdenes. How are you? My name is Mr. G, I am at your service. I have been a Spanish teacher to elementary, middle and high school students and adults. I have a BA in teaching Spanish and a MA in education and a lot of related experience in education. I have been a teacher trainer and a parent trainer.
Spanish is my second language and I would like to help you eventually make it your second language. Si es tu primer idioma, entonces te puedo ayudar con la gramática y el vocabulario en inglés. (If it's your first language then I can help you with grammar and vocabulary in English.)
I have a good sense of humor and I like to make learning fun. So I am sure that you'll enjoy our time of working together. I believe that learning a language can be a good experience and you should have many opportunities to practice speaking as well as reading and writing. I will share with you my knowledge of different Spanish speaking cultures and maybe you'll have some things to share with with me.
My educational philosophy is that students should develop critical thinking skills to better meet the demands of the school curriculum. It doesn't matter if those skills are developed in Spanish, English, or any other language. Your learning goals will drive the car that gets you to your learning destination. I will help you develop those skills while improving your Spanish or English
So, entretanto (meanwhile), I hope to hear from you soon so I can begin to help you achieve what you want to do with language. ¡Andale!

Mike is working with me as part of a group tutoring and it is going very well. Mike provides Spanish lessons that are applicable to a wide variety of skill levels, I never leave a session not learning something new. He is very easy to work with and strives to provide tutoring sessions that meet our needs. I am very happy with Mike and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for Spanish language instruction.
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 a former teacher of Spanish and English. I have taught ESL classes to adults in various parts of Colorado. Since I have learned Spanish as a second language I have a strong understanding of the challenges a second language learner faces. No matter what the other language might be I always seek to find connections between that language and English.
I have taught English to adults and I find that connections can be made between English and other languages that contribute to a a better grasp of English grammar and some of the nuances of the English language.
I have been involved in public speaking related activities in a variety of venues. Below is a summary of the types of activities I have conducted which are all public speaking experiential activities:
I have been a staff developer/trainer using platform skills to presenting concepts and ideas to various size groups utilizing group processing by facilitating activities, PowerPoint presentation and group discussion. (Colorado Department of Education, Ventures Educational Systems, Salt Lake City School District)
I have been a speaker and session presenter at local and statewide conferences (Colorado, Oklahoma, Alabama).
-I have been a facilitator of training of groups in community leadership skills. (Family Leadership Training Institute)
Spanish is one of the easier languages to learn and there are so many ties to the English language. I try to make the process of learning Spanish fun and I help you as my student to make connections between English and Spanish. I am a second language learner myself and this helps me to understand the challenge you face in learning a new language.
