About Matt

Hi there! I began studying Spanish in 8th, 1998 and continued every year through college, when I graduated in 2008. During that time I took several trips to Mexico, including a study-abroad semester in the Fall of 2006. Since then I have traveled for pleasure and service to Spain, Guatemala (profile pic), Honduras, Costa Rica and Ecuador. Aside from my day job for a data company, I also volunteer 2-3 times a week as a translator and administrator at a Christian free-clinic in downtown OKC. In almost 4 years of volunteering, I have gained a strong passion for the Spanish-speaking community's health care while also improving my own skills.

I do not have much tutoring experience, other than helping a friend in her Spanish class and teaching people phrases and words at the clinic and on my trip. But I enjoy using this skill and would love to help others gain at least a strong base if not work towards true fluency!

Knowing another language is a powerful skill that can help you in everyday life. Apps and language tools are helpful, but the best experience is with another person who can explain the rules, provide actual conversational tools and practice with you. I'm excited to help you achieve your goal of learning Spanish or just to get through a Spanish class in school!
