About Edgardo

I was born in Colombia and moved to the U.S when I was 19. My first language was Spanish but English followed right behind; I learned it since I was in preschool which is why I am bilingual and people usually can't tell I also speak Spanish.

Since I was a kid I took special interest into Art and Drawing and then a bit later also for Languages. I was obsessed with knowing my own language to perfection: spelling, grammar, common mistakes, vocabulary, dialects, history, etc. I remember reading a Spanish grammar book over a summer school break just for fun, or rather, out of pure interest.

I have a degree in visual arts but I'm also doing a major in linguistics because of my passion for it. I have tutored, translated and proofread (and even unofficially interpreted) between English and Spanish many times. I am completely comfortable with it and I quite honestly love it. I can comfortably say I grasp grammar rules and orthography better than most people I know, I help friends all the time.

My passion for linguistics and specially when it concerns the Spanish language. I've been reading books and articles about grammar, etymology, orthography and all around linguistics focused on Spanish since I was very young just because I love it. I grasp the concepts, the rules, the spelling and I have a lot of patience and eagerness to explain.

I learned English since I was preschooler, there's no memory of me actually practicing or reading grammar books to learn English, I started learning before the age of 5 so I learned English as a Native speaker. My vocabulary improved once I moved to the U.S but my language proficiency was there since my childhood. In my studies of linguistics I've used English and Spanish as reference and learned about concepts in both languages.

Please feel free to contact me! My schedule is pretty flexible and I'm sure we can find a way to accommodate your needs to it. I will immediately adjust my tutoring to whatever level you're and start addressing specific doubts and questions you may have.

Spanish/linguistic autodidact student for many years, currently formally a linguistics student. Native Spanish speaker. Constantly keep up to date with Spanish language evolution and with the changes in the standard cult dialect, and I constantly investigate linguistical particularities about the language.
