About Justin

I have had the pleasure of learning Spanish from native speakers while in my early teens and continuing that education on into my undergraduate studies at UNC-Chapel Hill. I have tutored high school, college, and adult learners and really enjoy helping others open new pathways in their lives by learning a new language.Tutoring gives me the opportunity to help students achieve their goals, whether it be for travel, work, or personal enrichment.

I specialize in conversational Spanish, technical science Spanish, conversational Portuguese, and technical science Portuguese. My graduate work at NC State allowed me to utilize my language skills in a science-focused setting. I focus heavily on everyday Spanish and enjoy having lessons in community situations (i.e. restaurants, grocery stores, etc.) that helps students get familiar with the inner workings of the language.

I have traveled extensively in Spain, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic and learned Spanish from native speakers from across the Spanish-speaking world. I was awarded the Camoes Prize, given to the outstanding undergraduate in Portuguese.

I am available to meet at a location that is convenient to the student and I don't mind coming to you. I prefer to have lessons during the work week, though Saturday mornings are an option. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. Suerte!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
