About Peter

I have been teaching High School Spanish and ESL classes for three years and am looking for more opportunities to help new students of all ages.

Prior to teaching High School, I taught college-level Spanish for two years while I earned my Master's in Spanish from Auburn University. I received my Bachelor's in Spanish for International Trade in 2002. Then, after some real world experience, I came back to school for my Master's. I studied abroad in Costa Rica, Spain and Mexico and know various dialects and idioms of Spanish from all over the Americas and Spain. I also spent one year living in Costa Rica, and have been to nine Spanish-speaking countries.

During my experience teaching ESL, I have taught students from Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Often times in the same classroom.

I know that every learner is different, so I try to include activities that cover all disciplines of Spanish in fun and unique ways, or sometimes more traditional ways. Just depending on the learners preferred learning style and individual needs.

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

While completing my Master's in Hispanic Studies degree at Auburn University, I also completed six hours of Graduate level Teaching ESL courses as well as three hours of Foreign Language Acquisition Methodology courses. I have taught a year of High School ESL as well to a class made up of students from Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Having learned a second language myself, I know that second language learners have different styles and preferences and I have various techniques and methods to use with English Language Learners.

Spanish

I have a Master's in Spanish and have taught four Elementary Spanish classes at Auburn University and High School Spanish for three years. I studied abroad in Spain, Mexico and Costa Rica and know dialects and idiomatic expressions from various countries. I am fluent in Spanish reading, writing, speaking and listening and know that certain students want to focus on specific skills.
