About Scott

I have been tutoring and teaching the Spanish language for many years. I am very technical when it comes to language learning because it is important for students to know the small differences that are noticed in Spanish. I make learning very simple and students enjoy my methods of instruction. I have a Master's degree in Spanish and have been teaching at various institutions. Some places I teach at are UMKC, Longview and Kansas City Kansas Community College. I like to help students at all ages. I was a substitute teacher for 5 years and a few times was subbing for a Spanish instructor.

I like to approach students by finding out which areas are troubling them in the Spanish language and help them learn the steps to get the answer. I am good at proving my answers based on how I teach in the university setting. I wrote my own version about Spanish grammar and rules with many examples to help students understand the Spanish grammar concept. I have seen my college students start from scratch with no experience to learning lots of vocabulary and being able to understand up to 70% of spoken Spanish.

I have been told that my teaching style has really helped students understand the language better. I like to do warm ups with my students from the previous class and help with retention and then present the new lesson and do another review at the end. I like to do conversation practice exercises after a thorough grammar presentation. I also have students write a half a page on a topic to brush up Spanish writing skills. I get very good evaluations in all places that I teach.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Spanish

I have been teaching college Spanish for 10 years. I have worked with various age groups in all levels of Spanish (elementary, intermediate and some advanced). I am very approachable and enjoy helping students and non students with writing and speaking skills with the Spanish language.
