About Roger

I tutored Spanish at High Point University for four years. I have obtained CRLA mastery level certification and have experience working with a diverse selection of students including those with learning disabilities. Students I worked with took anything from Spanish 101 to advanced classes in grammar and literature. I worked with native Spanish-speakers for two years as an ESL instructor. I have also taught middle and high school Spanish for over a year and have covered Spanish and Spanish immersion classes from elementary to high school.

I realize that every student benefits from different learning styles, and I have applied this from the very beginning. Every component of a language needs to be addressed and every skill strengthened. My goal is for students to be proficient in reading, writing, speaking, and listening to Spanish while eliminating the tendency to speak with an English accent.

Over the years I've developed multiple strategies for studying vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and culture that have worked for me and for the students I've worked with. Countless students have given me positive feedback, saying that my way of explaining concepts made the information much easier to process.

But simply learning vocabulary words and rules of grammar is not enough. A foreign language takes practice and dedication; and this is where I excel. Since languages are cumulative and students are expected to be familiar with everything learned up until a given point, I find a perfect balance with each student to practice what they have learned, challenging them just enough so that everything is reinforced and new knowledge is obtained. My strategy is to build a strong foundation and continue on from there.

I look forward to working with new students. Even if the situation seems hopeless, there is a chance. One student I worked with seemed like he would have failed an oral exam, but after one meeting passed with a high A. Another student was failing a class and finished with a high B. To anyone willing to put in the effort needed to learn a fascinating and highly useful language, know that the first step is the most important one. I am more than willing to help anyone reach the path to success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I've taught adult ESL students of all levels for over three years. I have a BA in Spanish, which I also teach, and have attended various professional development offerings for both. I'm a native English speaker with a strong understanding of grammar, and learning other languages has helped me understand where students who speak those languages are coming from.

Spanish

I'm licensed to teach K-12 Spanish (and finished the graduate licensure program with a GPA of 4.0), have a BA in Spanish, am on my third year of teaching K-12 Spanish in the public school system, have taught adult ESL for over three years, and professionally tutored Spanish for four years.
