About Henry


Bio

I really enjoy sharing my knowledge of Foreign Languages and History. I graduated Cum Laude from UMASS Lowell with a double major in History/Spanish. Throughout my time as an undergrad, I helped students with subjects ranging from College Writing, History and Spanish. After I finished my bachelor’s, I worked for a couple of years as a Spanish teacher. I later moved to Spain to study for my Master’s at Saint Louis University Madrid, where I graduated with distinction. I currently have my prel...

I really enjoy sharing my knowledge of Foreign Languages and History.
I graduated Cum Laude from UMASS Lowell with a double major in History/Spanish. Throughout my time as an undergrad, I helped students with subjects ranging from College Writing, History and Spanish. After I finished my bachelor’s, I worked for a couple of years as a Spanish teacher. I later moved to Spain to study for my Master’s at Saint Louis University Madrid, where I graduated with distinction. I currently have my preliminary teacher’s certification to teach Spanish and History in Massachusetts.

Spanish

I believe that my unique life and academic experiences make me an excellent Spanish tutor. I learned Spanish as a second language, so I understand the difficulties that English speakers have when learning the language, and some simple things that can help them. I also have had the opportunity to speak with Spanish speakers throughout the Spanish Speaking World, so if you are planning a trip to a particular place, I can cater to your needs. I feel that my ability to figure out what a student’s weakness is one my best attributes as a tutor.

ESL

I have worked as an ESL teacher at nights, and have a lot of experience dealing with English speakers who are Spanish speakers. I also have a great interest in other languages, and I believe that knowing a little bit about someone's own language can help me tutor someone with English. I have studied several languages, so I understand the effort it takes to learn another language, and I have lived as a foreigner in another country, so I can really relate to the difficulties of living in another country.

History

I have always have had a love for history and I am able to make real world connections that can help someone understand Historical events in context. I really enjoy history and I bring that enthusiasm to my tutoring.

Portuguese

While living in Europe, I had the opportunity to study Portuguese, and had exposure to both European and Brazilian Portuguese. I am more familiar with Brazilian Portuguese, but I am familiar with European Portuguese too. I also have a good understanding of the hurdles that a Spanish or English speaker will encounter while learning Portuguese.

Italian

Due to my family background, I always have had a great interest in Italian language and culture. Using my knowledge of Italian, I was able to find my grandparent’s family in Italy and visit their town and surviving cousins. I can help someone acquire the skills and resources so they can begin their Italian language learning adventure.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor describes Henry

Henry has been working with my teenager this summer. While he IS very patient and knowledgeable, a strength that sets him apart from others is his ability to motivate students in a way that speaks to them. Our child believed she wasn't good at languages based on her past experiences and her confidence and improvement in her abilities flourished working with Henry. He is also conscientious and wants to ensure that the student thrives working with him.

First meeting

Henry was very knowledgeable in Spanish and I found him to be a very patient/kind teacher. He assisted me in navigating the Spanish language: use of verbs, pronunciation and general formatting of Spanish words. He is excellent and I hope to have his assistance throughout the year.

Tracy , 24 lessons with Henry

First, very nice lesson!

We felt we learned already a lot in one lesson, and that tells about Henry's teaching style. He was prepared, even if he was not sure of what we were looking for, thorough and made it fun. We are definitely going with him.
