About Andres


Bio

Born and raised in beautiful Panama to an American mother and a Colombian father, I grew up speaking both English and Spanish at home. I moved to the United States for college and have lived in New York since graduation. I absolutely love teaching, and there are few things that get me more excited than seeing my students improve.

I started teaching at a young age, leading SAT Prep classes at the Panamanian branch of Kaplan as a summer internship while in college. I attended the University...

Born and raised in beautiful Panama to an American mother and a Colombian father, I grew up speaking both English and Spanish at home. I moved to the United States for college and have lived in New York since graduation. I absolutely love teaching, and there are few things that get me more excited than seeing my students improve.

I started teaching at a young age, leading SAT Prep classes at the Panamanian branch of Kaplan as a summer internship while in college. I attended the University of Pennsylvania, where I helped friends with their Spanish classes: correcting essays, sitting down for language practice/conversations, and answering whatever questions they would have. After graduation, I worked, among other places, at the Embassy of Panama to the UN. As part of my responsibilities, I translated all kinds of documents and interpreted for Panamanian officials on state visits. Now that I am pursuing acting, my flexible schedule allows me to tutor any time, pretty much anywhere in the city.

Technically speaking, not only am I a native Spanish speaker, but I've been trained rigorously in the various rules of the language, from appropriate conjugation to accent placement. Having a perfect command of English (a "second" native tongue for me), I can easily bridge any problem areas. My vast knowledge of Latin American authors allows me to provide the right reading material at all levels. A conversationalist by nature, I will make your learning experience both fun and practical, without compromising clarity or correct usage. Contact me to schedule our first class today!
