About Geraldine

I am an English/Spanish Language and Interpreting Professor with more than 25 years of experience providing language-related services around the world. I went to college abroad and discovered a love for languages that led me to teach ESL to private students and companies in Argentina and later to become an adjunct professor at the University of New York teaching interpretation in English and in Spanish in their Continuing Education Department. My students have gone on to become very successful and many still keep in touch with me throughout the years.

Teaching is a passion I have. I love to be able to convey my experience and knowledge to others and always seek creative ways in doing so. Love to think outside the box and make a teaching experience a fun one!

I'm very easygoing but don't like to waste time. When we work, we work and I always try giving it a spin, making it a fun, enjoyable and memorable experience!

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.

General Music

I started playing the piano over 40 years ago when I was three years old. I continued my formal studies at a School of Music and later went on to learn to play the accordion and the guitar. I have been playing both piano and accordion as a hobby ever since. Music is a hobby and a serious passion for me.

Handwriting

I love to teach and can easily and creatively teach both children and adults to utilize shapes and forms in order to improve their handwriting skills.

Knowledgable and personable tutor!

Geri is an excellent tutor--she's very good at communicating at my level. She is patient, fun and flexible. It is enriching to learn a new language, period, but more so to learn with an interesting person!
