My love for teaching Spanish and English comes from a life-long dedication of more than 30 years experience in USA and Colombia. I was formally trained and certified by the Bertlitz School of Languages for the Instruction of English and Spanish, specifically using the Inductive Method.
I have taught both individuals and corporations (British Petroleum, Philips, Shell, Esso)- at all different levels- in places such as Berlitz School of Languages, Manhasset, New York City, Bogota, Colombia, Universidad Javeriana, Universidad La Gran Colombia and many others.
I feel very proud to see how my students achieve their goals of learning, improving or mastering their new language, in a very short period of time. I am passionate about being able to help students connect the dots, as they learn both the conversational, and the grammatical in's and out's of a new language, whether it be English or Spanish. Please note, I am very flexible in setting up time and places to meet, so don't be afraid to let me know what you are seeking. I look forward to hearing from you.

Jose-Ricardo did a great job starting me with the basics --- covering first person singular and plural, second person singular and plural, third person singular and plural, how to use this in a question as well as how to properly say no in these formats. He did a masterful job practicing with me, helping me to start expanding my Spanish vocabulary while making sure I spoke grammatically correct. I'm very much looking forward to practicing on my own and being ready for my next lesson with Jose-Ricardo. I highly recommend Jose-Ricardo to anyone who is serious about learning Spanish.
Today we worked on verbs. Felt a bit tongue twisted at first, but he always encourages to keep trying. I'm feeling more confident each session.
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 have been teaching English as a Second Language for more than 30 years. I began my studies of the English language in Colombia, where I taught classes for Spanish speakers wanting to learn English. I then went on to receive my certification of English Proficiency from the University of Michigan and have taught many individuals, as well as corporations, at all different levels.
