About Darren

My excellent Spanish was learned growing up in Puerto Rico (the first fourteen years of my life) and refined as an adult by living in Venezuela for eight years. Spanish is a required subject in all Puerto Rican schools. Additionally, I studied Spanish in high school in NJ.

Teaching a language is the best work I've ever done. It was how I happily made my living during my eight years in Venezuela. I handled all aspects of teaching, whether ESL (adults and children), test preparation, or tutoring. Always well prepared and with an enthusiastic and energetic style.

Approved subjects

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.

Chess

I've been coaching chess clubs in elementary schools with Shining Knights Chess Co since 2010. I also coach week long chess camps with Shining Knights in the Summer. Member of the US Chess Federation.

ESL/ESOL

During my eight years living in Venezuela I made my living teaching English. In the beginning I worked for others, but during the last five years there I ran my own company. All during that time I gave classes myself. It was definitely the best work I've done!

The classes were always well prepared for, varied, and interesting. I used not only the texts, but also videos and newspapers or magazine articles to stimulate discussion. All classes were taught with enthusiasm and energy.

Spanish

My excellent Spanish was learned growing up in Puerto Rico (the first fourteen years of my life) and refined as an adult by living in Venezuela for eight years.

Patient teacher

My 15 year old son had no experience with chess. He has had 2 lessons with Darren who has been very patient with him. Darren teaches to the beginner level so well, my son was able to tell me what he learned.
