Bio

I recently graduated from the University of Iowa studying foreign language, with the intention to become a Spanish/ESL teacher, as well as a part time interpreter. I have been passionate about foreign language since my first year of high school, and nothing excites me more than lightening the burden for students learning Spanish as a foreign language.

I recently graduated from the University of Iowa studying foreign language, with the intention to become a Spanish/ESL teacher, as well as a part time interpreter. I have been passionate about foreign language since my first year of high school, and nothing excites me more than lightening the burden for students learning Spanish as a foreign language. Learning a foreign language in the classroom isn't always an easy task, especially if language isn't necessarily a passion of yours. I understand that not everyone enjoys Spanish, and oftentimes Spanish classes are not self-elected; but whatever your need for a Spanish tutor may be, I can help!
As a person, I'm a pretty fun guy. I am personable, approachable, and people tend to feel comfortable around me. However, I also have a very serious outlook on education. I am patient, thorough, and receptive to the needs of others; but I do hold myself, and therefore my learners, to a reasonable standard. It is important for a tutor to understand that simply knowing the material is not enough to teach it, but rather, being able to help the student understand it. As a student and as an individual who is always eager to help others, conveying ideas and concepts is something I am able to do very well. I also pride myself on having a highly flexible schedule, as well as a flexible cancellation policy (one hour in advance) as I understand that things do come up.
As a prior four-year high school student, and a 5 year college student, I am fully aware of what a student needs in the classroom . Outside of the classroom, I have spent extended periods of time in Colombia, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica to further my understanding of the language. With the combination of understanding classroom dynamics (familiarity with effective teaching strategies, terminology used by teachers, etc.) accompanied with a wide variety of experiences with native speakers inside and outside the country, I am certainly capable of helping you or your child understand the material in the way that fits best.
