About Thomas

I have 10 years of teaching experience at the high school level. I have taught Spanish I-IV as well as AP Language to both native and non-native speakers. I have taught AP Spanish Literature and extended literature courses. I love working one on one or in small groups as this is how one bests learns to communicate in a second language. There is no better feeling as a tutor or teacher than to see one's students grasp those concepts that once troubled them.

I am extremely confident in my ability not only to explain and teach all aspects of the Spanish language, but also in my ability to make learning relevant to those seeking to learn it. Whether to improve a grade, improve reading, speaking or listening skills, or to pass an AP exam, I believe you will achieve results with my tutelage.

I have been speaking and studying Spanish for the last 25 years. I traveled to Spain on a university program at 16 and have returned 11 more times since, most recently twice in 2015. I also have traveled to Mexico twice and Bolivia once. In 2013 I took The Praxis II World Language Exam for Spanish and achieved the maximum possible score. I consider the ability to freely communicate in a second language a tremendous gift that I believe in helping others achieve. Not only do I love Spanish, I love sharing it with others.

If you are in upper level Spanish courses at the high school or college level and struggle, I will help you understand and improve. If you do well yet struggle with pronunciation, for example, I can improve the way you sound. If you struggle not with speaking, but reading complex texts, I can show you how to master it. Whatever you need, if it is Spanish, I can help you!

Thomas helped me with constructing and identifying which subjunctive tenses to use. After 20 minutes with him I understood the grammar lesson a lot more than learning it for a week in class.
