I am very interested in helping non-native speakers learn the skills they need to understand more about the English language and American culture. I will tailor lessons to meet your specific needs, and I am flexible regarding formats, locations, and schedules for each session. I graduated from a 60-hour course sponsored by Oxford Seminars in March of 2008 on Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). This seminar was offered at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. On completion of the class, I presented a practicum, which was approved Oxford Seminar evaluators, earning an internationally-recognized TESOL certificate. I am qualified and ready to tutor you in any aspect of the English language, whether it is for business, school, fun, or other interests. My resume is available on request.

As a member of the American Translators' Association, a volunteer career mentor, and an independent contractor, I understand the challenges in learning another language. I strive to help my clients in any way I can. For over eight years, I've tutored Spanish language skills to teen and adult students at multiple levels in individual and classroom sessions. My biggest reward is to help others reach their goals for school, business, or cultural awareness. I also translate and interpret Spanish to English and English to Spanish to help customers bridge communication gaps in advertising, requesting VISAs, publishing, improving health care, providing legal assistance, and other public/private services. I am certified as a translator but not as an interpreter or a full-fledged teacher (yet). I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland in 1981. Coursework for the degree included a year-long immersion program for advanced studies at the University of Valencia in Valencia, Spain. All courses were taught only in Spanish, and I lived with a Spanish family. I also gained skills applicable to teaching during a 26-year career at the U.S. Department of Defense as a Spanish Analyst and Mid-Level Supervisor. My resume is available on request.

very patient, very knowledgeable

Very nice guy- by speaking in Spanish with him for almost the whole lesson, I was able to learn a lot and advance my goal of feeling comfortable with clients when speaking Spanish. I would recommend him for others & wish him the best.

Good tutor, very responsive!

Mr Thomas is a good tutor. He's been professional, upbeat and patient. We recently asked him to change his style in order to accommodate our child's learning style and he immediately made the change with good effect. We appreciate his thoroughness and responsiveness.
