About Nate


Bio

iHola! I have years of experience teaching and tutoring at all levels, elementary through college. In my classroom, I don't use a textbook, instead building comprehension seamlessly via interaction. I base my lessons on Second Language Acquisition research, ensuring learners gain confidence and acquire Spanish as effectively as possible. It's fun and easy when you work with your brain's built-in language processes!

While I use a carefully-designed "natural approach" when I can, I am happy to...

iHola! I have years of experience teaching and tutoring at all levels, elementary through college. In my classroom, I don't use a textbook, instead building comprehension seamlessly via interaction. I base my lessons on Second Language Acquisition research, ensuring learners gain confidence and acquire Spanish as effectively as possible. It's fun and easy when you work with your brain's built-in language processes!

While I use a carefully-designed "natural approach" when I can, I am happy to apply the same expertise to help learners make the most of a school's textbook. I can also supplement other resources, such as shows or movies where you may want a "tour guide" to make sense of things. My grasp of Second Language Acquisition will help you avoid wasted time in less effective methods, such as those used in certain popular apps and websites.

Credentials:
-Certified Spanish Teacher, K-12, NH
-Master's in Curriculum and Instruction
-BA in Spanish with minors in English and Latin American Studies
-Member: Nat'l Honor Soc. for: English, Foreign Languages; American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages; NH Association of World Language Teachers; American Translators Association

My Master's thesis was on the power of reading. It really is like a superpower for your brain in terms of language and overall learning!

In addition, I am currently completing a Medical Interpreter course, adding to my language skills. This allows me to provide more insight for those in upper levels seeking to use Spanish in the workplace or even a potential translation/interpreting career.

Reach out today to set up a free mini-lesson! You can share your situation and goals, and I will show you how my time-tested approach can help you meet them. If you're ready to jump in with tutoring, let's get started!

If you've enjoyed learning with me, you can share the joy through ko-fi: buy my bunnies a head of lettuce, or help me upgrade my office gear. iGracias! Thanks so much for sharing your journey with me! -- https://ko-fi.com/nateb

Enthusiastic and caring tutor

Nate was a huge help for our son who was struggling during the remote school setting. His energy and enthusiasm made the material and the learning process enjoyable. It was a big part of helping him open up and interact in Spanish. He was very accommodating of our crazy schedule and communicative to me as a parent in trying to figure out how best to work with our son. We highly recommend Nate!
