About Simon

I am a language lover who has been given the gift of understanding the ins and outs of it very well. I studied abroad in Argentina and have spent time in the several other Spanish speaking countries (Peru, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Spain). I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish from Kent State University. In addition, I spent nearly three years as a Peace Corps volunteer teaching English where I also spent time studying Russian.

I can tutor all levels of Spanish and ESL. I can also tutor elementary and intermediate levels of Russian.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker who has studied English, Spanish, and Russian extensively. Having learned Spanish and Russian, I have had to focus deeply on grammar, which has brought my understanding of my first level to a maximum.

I am really interested in extending my gift of English as a native language as well as my full understanding of the language.

Spanish

I began studying Spanish just before and then while studying abroad in Argentina. After returning to the United States, I completed a degree in Spanish at Kent State University under professors who were almost all native speakers. I have also traveled to Peru, Puerto Rico, and Mexico and have many Spanish speaking friends with whom I only speak Spanish.

My main talent is speaking, but I have arrived to the level I am at through a complete understanding of grammar and language. My passion for Spanish has fueled me to continue educating myself while I work full-time as a translator.

Great Tutor — Simon prepares, and is professional and helpful in developing language skills. He spoke entirely in Spanish, and exceeded my expectations of class. He did research on the theme, had a structure to the class and reinforced skills. Thank you! ...
