I have a Masters in Educational Administration, and I have a passion to teach. Before coming to the Gulf Coast, I worked as a teacher in Miami, Florida. My strength lies in helping children with all subjects, but can help any adult as well. How can I serve you?

Gonzalo has been tutoring my son in Spanish. When we first met with him for the initial interview/introduction my son was a little apprehensive because he has never had a tutor outside of his school environment. After I picked my son up from the first session with Gonzalo he was very excited about the opportunity that he has to have Gonzalo tutor him and his self confidence to learn a new language has increased.
Gonzalo always makes my son feel comfortable and tutors with a positive goal oriented attitude that truly gives my son the confidence in his self to be successful in his Spanish class.
Thank you Gonzalo---we appreciate what you do!!
Every lesson with Gonzalo is fun. We learn Spanish songs and play games as well as learn. I enjoy that he challenges us with new words even though we are beginners. He is also very patient with our pronunciation and helps us to get it right. I enjoy each of our sessions.
I’m pleased with the professional and structured manner in which Mr. G conducted my Spanish lessons. I was not a novice but rather someone that knew some Spanish coming in and Mr. G adapted his curriculum to suit my specific needs. He seem attentive and dedicated to help me. I believe Mr. G doesn’t just know classroom Spanish, but real world Spanish, and an ability to steer you towards words and phases that are actually spoken and not just in textbooks. We focus on listening and calibrating my ears to easily recognize Spanish words when spoken by others. This is a common problem among those who learn mostly from books and other means that focus on reading, as opposed to interacting with people in the real world. I recommend that you give Mr. G a try and bring patience and a understanding that you won't learn Spanish over night.
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.
