About Edward

Hello Everyone! I am an experienced Spanish, French, ESL and accent reduction professional. I have nearly 12 years of experience and have worked with children and adults. Over the last 10 years, I have developed my own method of teaching languages. After realizing the need for a conversation-based language learning program in the Boston Area, I began my quest to help people of all ages and backgrounds learn languages, especially Spanish, French and English. My method is a progressive teaching method that promotes fluency through repetition. It incorporates both traditional methods of teaching languages, as well as modern immersive styles of teaching. It is also flexible in nature. We will meet to discuss your specific goals and adapt my method to your needs. Over the last few years, I have developed fantastic material, a great curriculum, have conducted immersion programs both in the Boston Area and abroad, and have worked as a private tutor and teacher. Like you, I am also a student of languages. I am currently learning Portuguese using my own method.

For students who need English and accent reduction, I will help you gain confidence, increase your vocabulary, help you with grammar, and improve your accent! I have a lot of material that I can provide to you. Every week, you will receive tasks to practice your English, which might include talking with colleagues, doing oral exercises, listening to music, watching videos, etc. The focus is always speaking!

For students who want to learn Spanish, we will begin by assessing your level and create realistic goals. I always focus on conversation and help you take your Spanish to the next level. I am a native speaker and was raised fully bilingual. I have also studied Spanish at the University level, in Argentina and in Spain. Your lessons and homework will always include readings, listening exercises, oral exercises, written exercises, and verb drills.

I am a charismatic guy! I love languages, love traveling and am training for my 5th marathon!
