Congratulations, by selecting me as your instructor the probability of you reaching your goals has substantially increased. My students are my identity, and without their success I am incomplete. It is both my training and purpose to insure you reach fluent and eloquent expression in either English or Spanish. As a teacher and aspiring writer with pedagogical certification, training, and twenty years in the classroom, and online, I possess the professionalism necessary to reach any goal ranging from basic acquisition to high level spoken and written fluidity.
Having guided thousands of students, young and old, in Argentina, Chile, Cuba, and the United States to their individual educational endeavors I stand ready to help you conquer any challenge.
Life abroad has armed me with problem solving techniques I'd be proud to share with ambitious spirits. I also have writing samples for available for the inquisitive.
I have Bachelors' of Arts in degrees in English and Spanish from the College of Charleston University,and have spent many years perfecting my written and spoken English and spoken Spanish instruction technique. In addition to a love for language and understanding of the need to communicate clearly I am a voracious reader.
A great deal of my success in life is the a result of time and discipline spent perfecting my instruction skills With a my hard won teaching experience in your corner, prepare to learn and do things you never thought possible. If someone had told me I'd marry a non English speaking woman, and live the majority of my current adult life in a foreign country nurturing a dynamic relationship with diverse languages cultures and communication I would have laughed. However realizing I had a lot to offer I set out blazing my own trail. Take advantage of this accumulated hard work training and endless passion to explore your brilliant and unimagined future.

Energetic, knowledgeable and helpful

John brought his passion for Spanish to our flowing conversation. He made grammatical corrections in a timely manner without disrupting the dialogue energy. John's time in South America and Central America helped give our conversation an international perspective.

Paul, 1 lesson with John

John is an experienced and fun teacher

After only a few lessons with John the basics of Spanish grammar and speech are coming together. His lessons are always encouraging! Every time I finish a lesson with him I know that I would be struggling to find my way around this language and getting lost on my own. John is a great at focusing on vocabulary that is most commonly used so I can speak faster. He makes the material fun and is encouraging.

Gaius, 7 lessons with John

We love John!

John is a great teacher! Funny and kind and really good at teaching! He was able to teach us so much Spanish in our short lesson. We highly recommend having him as a tutor! Thank you John!

Ashlee, 1 lesson with John

Great tutor

John has helped me realize I know more Spanish than i thought I knew. We’ve been going over verbs and conjugation of verbs as well as expanding my vocabulary to help me speak complete sentences. He’s very helpful, knowledge, approachable, and funny. This was my 3rd session thus far and plan to keep booking with him.

Neyssa, 5 lessons with John

Great teacher

It was my first lesson and I am sure I can learn a lot from John! He is very patient and dedicated. We were talking all the time and I think conversation is the best way to learn language .

Joanna, 3 lessons with John

Knowledgeable, fun and friendly

John lived abroad for many years and brings an authenticity to the language that only comes from being immersed in the culture. He is humorous, likable and genuine.

Shane, 1 lesson with John

Very Helpful

Able to help with many challenges. Responds quickly and is flexible. My son enjoys working with John and feels more comfortable in his Spanish class. We have been averaging two sessions per week.

ROBERT, 32 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and patient with the student

Started with basics to understand where student stands and progressed gradually to build confidence in our student. We are planning on scheduling additional sessions.

Learning is Occurring

John is smart, patient, and teaches about the culture as well as the language. He is punctual and eager to teach. I have only had two lessons with him, and have taken notes. He has also provided homework to further my learning. I look forward to further lessons. Thanks!

Garrett, 12 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and very entertaining

I learned a lot from John and he kept me interested. I will definitely tutor with him on a regular basis. He knows his Spanish and keeps you engaged. I am a beginner at Spanish and believe I can learn a lot from him.
