Hello! My name is Tom, and I'm an aspiring Spanish and ESL teacher who also loves Math (I practice Algebra for fun in my free time). I have 2.5 years of formal teaching experience abroad (Colombia and Costa Rica), where I co-taught English alongside local counterparts. I have 2 years of experience tutoring Adult English Learners in the United States, working with immigrants from all over the world.

Hello! My name is Tom, and I'm an aspiring Spanish and ESL teacher who also loves Math (I practice Algebra for fun in my free time). I have 2.5 years of formal teaching experience abroad (Colombia and Costa Rica), where I co-taught English alongside local counterparts. I have 2 years of experience tutoring Adult English Learners in the United States, working with immigrants from all over the world. I love being able to express my creativity, designing lessons that are not only effective, but fun and engaging as well. If we're not having fun, we're not learning! Most importantly, I love seeing my students' confidence levels increase as they gain new skills and overcome challenges.

I excelled in Math subjects throughout high school and college, scoring A's in Algebra 1/2, Trigonometry, Geometry, Analysis and Calculus. Math is fun for me, and it can be fun for you too! As your math tutor, I will you help you connect what you are doing in math to a real world application. I find this extremely important because it makes learning math easier if you can identify how you will use it in your life. Now that you are motivated, I will model how to solve a problem, then we'll do it together and finally, you'll do it on your own. With this system, you will become increasingly more confident in your ability to tackle any math problem you encounter!

I have been tutoring, co-teaching and facilitation English language acquisition in ELL's since 2015. I have two internationally recognized TEFL certificates - one from the International TEFL Academy and the other from the Peace Corps. I've worked with learners from 6th-12th grade and adults from many different countries around the world. Not only that, but at 39 years old, I began learning and practicing Spanish. In 4 years time, I have achieved conversational and working fluency. Having gone through the experiencing of learning a foreign language myself makes me a better ESL teacher/tutor because I know the challenges, the frustrations, and what it takes to
