About Richard

As a Spanish teacher, I have extensive experience teaching internationally both in the Caribbean as well as the USA. I have been teaching Spanish in the US since 1991 and have worked in both private and public schools in the city of Philadelphia as well as in several suburban school districts. As a result of my diverse teaching experiences I have been able to work successfully with students who are expected to cover a full 3-4 year Spanish program or a two-year urban Spanish course.
As a tutor you will find me to be very personable, humorous, patient and encouraging. I expect the very highest standards of work from my students and will work hard to inspire your trust and confidence in me as your tutor as well as the self confidence and motivation that you will need to take on the exciting challenges and possibilities of learning a foreign language. My tutoring sessions will complement your classwork in school, reinforcing basic skills as well as move you a bit ahead of your classmates in terms of the curriculum. Confidence and competence are my goals for each student!

As a "highly qualified" teacher/tutor I have a BA (Honors) in Spanish Language and Literature from the University of the West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago and 25+ years of teaching experience. I also have extensive experience in creating my own lessons and cultural materials and incorporating technology and interactive media into my teaching

I invite you to come along on this very exciting journey that many others have taken before you and experience the success that you have been seeking. Nos vemos al cima! See you at the top!
