About Mike

I have expert knowledge in teaching English and Spanish.

I am an English as a Second Language instructor at Howard Community College. For two years, I taught English in Costa Rica at a private language institute called Intercultura Centro de Idiomas. My second semester at the institute, I was awarded Teacher of the Semester. For English-learners, I know that one of the biggest challenges is pronunciation. You will see an incredible difference in your pronunciation as a result of our classes. You will learn new vocabulary and very useful expressions to improve your fluency.

Soy profesor de Inglés como Segundo Idioma en Howard Community College, y fui ganador del premio de Profesor del Semestre en un instituto privado en Costa Rica. Mi experiencia por dos años en el instituto me ha permitido conocer que una de las mayores dificultades que se presentan para la correcta expresión oral del idioma inglés es la pronunciación. Por ello el énfasis de la enseñanza de mis lecciones se centraliza en ese aspecto tan importante del aprendizaje. El aprender y practicar frases idiomáticas y vocabulario nuevo le facilitará comunicarse con más fluidez.

My bachelor's degree is in Spanish Language & Literature from the University of Maryland. I also lived and studied Spanish extensively in Spain and Costa Rica. I always surprise people when they learn I'm from the United States, since I have no American accent when I speak Spanish. My Spanish classes are very conversational, and I will assist you with pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary.

You can contact me to schedule a lesson and I will respond immediately. It would be a pleasure to help you meet your goals!
