About Dominick

I was a teacher for nine years, a college professor for five, a community organizer, a tutor for ten years, and a trainer of other teachers. I have developed ESL programs and I have taught ESL and public speaking at college and high school levels. I have been a public speaker for more than 12 years and have tutored ESL for many people ranging from 3 years old to 50 year olds.

I am fluent in Spanish, and have taught youth and adults Spanish for nine years, I have worked and traveled to several Spanish speaking countries as a translator and as a teacher of English.

Besides Spanish and English, I am very competent to tutor on subjects such as history, geography, public speaking, religion, and writing. I was a minister for 11 years and taught comparative religion in the university setting. I am a well read in world religions.

I am a home school dad who has taught not only my children but several elementary age children via Classical Conversations using many age appropriate techniques.

I am an excellent person who desires to tutor excellent people like YOU.
