About West

I learned Spanish living and working for eight years in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. I then moved to the U.S.-Mexico border where I used my Spanish nearly every day for 20 years. Prior to this I was a high school teacher in Houston, Texas and also tutored a few students outside of the classroom.

I learned Spanish as a second language as an adult and therefore I understand the difficulties of learning the language and I also understand what it takes to make progress when studying Spanish.

I am very impressed by anyone who wants to learn a new language. As such I am very interested in accompanying anyone who wants to learn a new language enough to seek out extra help. I am interested in helping the student find fun and creative ways to learn a language.

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 lived eight years in Venezuela, speaking Spanish every day. I then lived for 20 years on the the U.S.-Mexico border, crossing the border numerous times a week into Mexico and speaking Spanish. I learned Spanish as an adult so I understand how to learn and how to teach Spanish.
