Bio

I am a professional Master's level tutor providing customized, comprehensive instruction and support. I specialize in languages, study skills, and standardized test tutoring. Whether we are working on Spanish, French, English, or SAT/ACT, my goal is the same: to help my students succeed.

I am a professional Master's level tutor providing customized, comprehensive instruction and support. I specialize in languages, study skills, and standardized test tutoring. Whether we are working on Spanish, French, English, or SAT/ACT, my goal is the same: to help my students succeed. Because I customize lessons to each of my students' needs to help them realize their potential, my students consistently see tangible improvements. An improvement of at least one or two letter grades (sometimes more) is typical.

Over the past fifteen years I have made multiple trips to both Spanish and French speaking countries, served as an interpreter, and completed a dual Foreign Language degree (French and Spanish) at West Virginia University, with an emphasis in grammar and pronunciation.

I also provide comprehensive English and ESL tutoring. I now have multiple years of experience working as an ESL Teacher and tutor in various settings, providing one-on-one instruction and English support to domestic and international students, helping them improve their grades as well as their SAT and TOEFL scores.

Whatever your current language level or standardized test score, I can help you improve, reach goals, and communicate more effectively. Though I often work with students who are currently enrolled in language courses, I am able to provide material and work with all students to meet their particular needs. I am currently available primarily evenings and weekends. I also make myself available for online tutoring as needed. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed.

Extremely patient tutor!

Appreciate Nathan's patient and deliberate approach to tutoring. He has helped our 9th grade daughter gain confidence in her Spanish class. A bit more expensive than the other tutors available in our area, but we feel it has been worth the extra expense due to his professional approach and caring demeanor.

Nathan is an awesome tutor, one of the best I know of. I have always had issues learning languages and need that extra attention in order to grasp it. Nathan is willing to put in that time and energy in order to help me learn no matter what it takes. Highly recommend him!
