About Clinton

During 22 years of teaching Russian, Spanish and German at Rangeview High School in Aurora, Colorado, and 7 years teaching Russian at the Community College of Aurora, I led groups of students on month-long academic exchanges to cities of the former Soviet Union 15 times. I have compiled extensive teaching materials and strategies to render the learning of Russian, Spanish or German pleasurable, uncomplicated, and thorough, and, being retired, am available at any time, day or night, weekday or weekend.

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.

Russian

I taught Russian at Rangeview High School in the Aurora Public Schools for 22 years, and at the Community College of Aurora for 8 years. During this time, I took students 12 times on month-long exchanges to various cities in the former Soviet Union, where we lived with host families and attended our partner schools. I also took students on summer tours to Russia a number of times.

A Coloradoan by birth, I have developed in classrooms, both here and in Russia, procedures that uniquely resolve the difficulties of Russian for English language learners.

Spanish

I am a retired Spanish teacher who taught all levels of Spanish for over 20 years in the Aurora Public Schools. I maintain extensive files of helpful materials and strategies for all Spanish language levels and topics, and, being retired, am able to meet with you any time that is convenient.
