Felicidades! My name is Paul. I'm a Temple graduate majoring in Spanish who has spent 10 months living and working with family in Argentina as well as 2 years living and working in Mexico City. I love tutoring and have tutored both Spanish and ESL (English as a second language). I place a lot of emphasis on conversational situations and dialogues and am a big fan of role-plays and experiential learning. I also like to get students listening to music sung in Spanish as this increases cultural as well as linguistic literacy. Favorite textbooks of mine include local Hispanic newspapers because they have three advantages; they are free, they are relevant, and they cover a whole range of life material at once (from sports to politics to local news to recipes). I like to stress the relevancy of learning this vital language in a changing nation as well as remind students that a mastery of this language enables them to communicate with 600 million people from 22 different countries where Spanish is the official tongue. I have 2 years of Spanish tutoring experience and have started a local Spanish conversation meet-up group at a local coffee shop, and I have also completed the Oxford Seminars Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages 60-hour intensive course. I also currently freelance as a Spanish/English interpreter/translator. I love to tutor and look forward to speaking with you soon. Saludos! Hasta luego! Felicidades! My name is Paul.

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.
