About Erik

I am originally from Mexico City where I lived until I was 18 years old. I arrived in NYC in 2002 to pursue my studies and then decided to stay in this country. Over the past 14 years I have worked as a writer and Spanish translator of numerous theatrical productions and films.

I am currently a full time teacher at a private school in Chelsea where I teach both Spanish and Visual Art.

I have been a private Spanish tutor for 5 years with students ranging from 10-55 years old. I absolutley love what I do and love sharing my language and culture with others. No matter what level the student is at my main goal is to encourage and develop their strength through an active exploration of the subject. My goal is to make language dynamic by encouraging application through real world experiences, not just textbooks and worksheets. I am fully comfortable planning a curriculum that suits us both or to help you with a curriculum already set through another teacher.

I am a native Spanish speaker with several years experience as a translator and educator. I have taught several Spanish courses for adults, middle school and high school students and love speaking my mother tongue and helping others speak it too!

If you would like to learn more about my methods of teaching or would like to schedule a lesson please do not hesitate to contact me.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Theatre

I received a BA from Fordham University for Theater Directing in 2005. Since then, I have written, directed, and designed several one act plays, musicals, and performances throughout NYC and Mexico. I have also taught Drama at the high school and middle school level.

Video Production

I received my MFA in Interactive Media from Brooklyn College, where I specialized in Interactive Video Art. My work primarily consists of non-narrative films, video art and synthesis, and video installations. I know the Adobe Suite for video very well and use it almost everyday from my work.
