About Ricardo

I was born in Haiti and am a native speaker of French and Creole. I attended a bilingual school (French and Creole), where we also learned Spanish, English, and Latin. My parents are professors of Spanish and French, and I learned from them the precise rules of grammar and pronunciation. After high school, I lived for 5 years in the Dominican Republic, where I attended university for physical therapy, and improved to native-like proficiency in Spanish. I have lived in New York for the past 6 years, and have worked in several multi-lingual environments, from political campaigns, to customer service departments, to a hospital call center. In each of these jobs I learned the specific vocabularies of politics, business, and medicine.
I teach languages in a friendly, highly verbal format so that you will find yourself speaking before you know it. I use a lot of music to illustrate grammar and to practice pronunciation. I was a tutor in college and helped many international students learn Spanish in the Dominican Republic. I love tutoring because I love meeting new people and building relationships with my students. There is nothing better than seeing my students express themselves in a new language and learn about new cultures.

The languages I teach are the languages I use in my daily life. This way, I know the correct words and phrases that you need to use, in addition to the current slang and colloquial phrases that you will hear among friends, in business meetings, and while travelling. From my training in physical therapy and my work in hospitals, I am a specialist in the health professions, where Spanish, Creole, and French are used every day!

I am available to schedule lessons every day. Please let me know your availability so that we can set up a time to meet. I look forward to working with you!
