Universidad de Piura - Peru
Hola! My Name is Nino and I am from Lima, Peru. When I moved to Columbus 10 years ago, every time I mentioned that I was from Lima people asked me how I felt coming from a small town, thinking that I was from Lima, Ohio. It always made me smile because the Lima (pronounced Lee-mah) I come from is four times bigger than Columbus and it has the population of New York City.
I am so happy that I came to this city because here is where I met my wife Penny and also because you can breathe sports everywhere. As a sports journalist I am so blessed to work for the Columbus Crew as a Spanish radio field reporter and Spanish online writer. I also had the opportunity to coach soccer for the Golden Bears of Upper Arlington middle school. That was a great experience- not just because I could share my knowledge of the sport with young athletes, but because of the fact that I was able to motivate them and get the best out of them. How? By improving the communication on the field. I noticed that nobody was talking during the game so I created a drill where the ball supposed to be the phone number of the most beautiful girl they know, so they have to ask for "the phone" in order to get the ball. They were never quiet during the games anymore and helped improve the performance of the team, we reached the playoffs that year.
Spanish is my first language, and my stepdaughters are taking Spanish in school. The best way to get better is practice, practice, practice. But with interaction, not just repetition. We just did a little restaurant play (very useful, by the way) with the waiter-customer role play and it really helped to recreate real situations.
I graduated from one of the top 5 schools in Peru, I am eager to bring knowledge, quality and fun at the same time. I think the tutor is like a personal trainer that helps you and guide you to achieve your goals, working together as a team, together we can score, together we can win. Hola!

Your search for a tutor is over because Nino is the BEST there is! He will make your goals his own and that helps tremendously in keeping you on track should you get discouraged or busy with other things. He has exceptional knowledge and experience with written and spoken Spanish. If you need intensive review sessions or need to learn knew concepts, he is able to adjust appropriately without hesitation. He keeps his sessions lighthearted and fun, but most importantly he's an encourager, he was always cheering for me. There wasn't a day that Nino didn't encourage me and say he believed in me. For that, I definitely gained confidence in my Spanish and other academic pursuits. For all these reasons and more, I'd call him my Personal Spanish Coach - the word tutor just doesn't do him justice!!
There is this rock band from Argentina named Soda Stereo that played together for 15 years and in their farewell concert (Chau Soda) after their last song, their vocalist, Gustavo Cerati said this: "Nosotros no seríamos nada sin ustedes, algunos siguen hasta hoy... GRACIAS TOTALES!"
I felt the same way and, I really wish you can visit your cousin in my beloved Perú.
He has a way of engaging my boys. His lessons are informative, challenging, interesting as well as fun. They are learning so much. Thank you!
No matter your Spanish level, this guy is the best tutor out there! He helped me immensely and I highly recommend him to everyone! Stop looking for another tutor. Nino is the best there is!
Can't say enough about how fantastic it has been working with Nino. He quickly developed a great rapport with my daughter, has been an excellent teacher/resource for her, and has been very flexible and accommodating with his schedule.
Nino immediately put me at ease. He was easy to talk to, very knowledgeable, and organized. I learned a lot in our first tutoring session. He is a very good tutor! I highly recommend him to other students.
Nino was absolutely wonderful during the first lesson with my grandchildren. He truly understands how to teach young children and how to relate to them. I am very encouraged by the first lesson and am looking forward to much success in the coming lessons. The best review is that his students, my grandchildren, like him and want to learn Spanish from him!
Just want to update my review after only five lessons with Nino. My grandchildren are absolutely doing a great job in learning Spanish! Nino truly has a wonderful approach to learning for children and they are now confident enough (especially my grandson) to speak Spanish with other people who know Spanish. It is just so rewarding to see them enjoy learning a second language.
We found Nino through the WyzAnt web site, I was apprehensive at first however, Nino exceeded our expectations. Nino is highly qualified to teach students (or anyone) all levels of Spanish. Nino has been instrumental in teaching our 8th grader the correct placement of verbs in sentence writing. In return, my son has gained new confidence in his ability to comprehend the Spanish language. I would highly recommend Nino for any of your Spanish tutoring needs.
Nino has really gotten to know my son so that he can discuss subjects of interest and keep my son engaged.
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.
I worked for two years as a line cook at Jack and Benny's, a busy campus breakfast spot. I can make perfect eggs in 8 different ways, omelets, and French toast. I am also a proud representative of Peruvian cuisine and an expert ceviche maker. I sold 200 ceviches at the Latino festival in Columbus. I can grill to perfection.
I was a member of the varsity team at San Agustin Catholic High School, Chiclayo, Peru, and Captain of the soccer team at Universidad de Piura, Peru. Additionally, I have coached soccer at Upper Arlington Middle School and have worked as a referee at Soccer First-Hilliard. I have also been a sports writer at Once, a soccer magazine.
