Providence College (SPANISH EDUCATION)
Providence College / Teacher Certification (MEd)
I provide effective Spanish tutoring specializing in 'conversational' and 'traditional' aspects of Spanish. I have always enjoyed learning a new language. Being brought up in a bilingual home environment greatly opened the door for me to pursue a career in Spanish education. To me it was definitely an enjoyable challenge learning a new language. My specialty is tutoring conversational and traditional Spanish whereas a student learns the basic foundation to move forward with ease. Through placing emphasis on grammar a student is helped to learn Spanish easily. Moreover, I encourage daily review of a lesson to allow a student to realize his/her growth and advance in learning Spanish
I am quite flexible with time and am available at a student's convenience. I do, however, request that a student calls if there is a need to cancel a session. I greatly encourage a quiet and comfortable study space where I can effectively tutor Spanish with a student. Traveling to a location that is most convenient for the student is recommended.
I have 37 years in education whereas I served as a Spanish teacher/tutor, Spanish-Bilingual Education Coordinator and Guidance Counselor. I have gained experience in all levels of education. I have a BA in Spanish Education and a MA in Spanish Bilingual Education. I have a M.Ed. in Counselor Education and a CAGS in Special Education.

Basic mechanics of the Spanish language .we went from the beginning due to the fact I have never taken a language in high school and my university requires a language
Robert taught me the vowels and basic words and phrases in Spanish. He also reiterated the importance of reviewing and practicing what I have learned so far. We will be working more with verbs and present and past tense.
I hired Robert to help my son with his high school Spanish. My son found their sessions incredibly valuable from day one. Robert was able to teach the material my son was learning in class in a way that he could understand. In fact, after just a couple of lessons, my son said that he knew Spanish better than he had all year thanks to Robert's help. In addition to his deep knowledge of Spanish and teaching ability, Robert is very friendly and my son took to him immediately. He is also reliable, responsive and prompt. I can't say enough good things about Robert -- we'll be sure to use him again when school starts up next fall.
Robert has been tutoring my business partner and I for several months. He has a background in education so he knows how to teach. Would recommend highly.
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.
