Thomas R. is a US citizen from birth speaking English, Spanish and Italian at home being born into a polyglot family resident legally in the USA and then learning French by attending French high school in France - eventually teaching in France as an adjunct professor and finally learning Brazilian Portuguese by working in South America.

My education and work experience include many years spent in Mexico, the Caribbean, South America and Western Europe studying and working in the corporate and academic worlds and prompted me to become certified also in English, ESL, and TOEFL once I joined Wyzant. So, for approximately the past 6 years I have successfully tutored in - alphabetical order English (ESL, TOEFL), French, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish - and - with over 120 student comments about my verbal abilities and a designation by Wyzant as to being ranked for 2015 in the top 250 tutors listing for Wyzant - please consider me for your language needs without hesitation.

A professional certification as a Spanish instructor By IACET (THE ASSOCIATION OF CONTINUING EDUCATION TRAINERS) allows me to provide you CONTINUING ED CREDIT approved by the Texas Education Agency when you take Spanish professional courses in this language with me, such as, Medicine, Nursing, Law Enforcement, Education, Real Estate, Mortgage Banking, Construction, Business, etc. AND MANY MORE - yes - I can issue Spanish credits the same as you taking the course at the community college of your choice any where in the USA.

I have taught ESL in France during the day at the college level on dual Fulbright Fellowships from both the French and US governments while studying at the Universite de Lille, Roubaix-Tourcoin, France in the evening.

The past several years, retired from a full time position, were spent traveling and tutoring, teaching languages and Latino - Anglo workforce cultural diversity to many hundreds of students in one on one as well as group classes in Continuing Ed and corporate training venues. These opportunities allowed me also to teach as an adjunct professor at the University of Texas, SMU, Dallas Baptist University and TCU. By the way my university experience includes also an adjunct teaching opportunity at UCLA in Los Angeles, California within the LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES DIVISION - I was at UCLA because the US Government gave me a Smith - Mundt Fellowship to attain the Masters degree in this study area with graduate certification achieved in Spanish - Portuguese - and French for the Caribbean.

I want to be your personal language tutor in any one or more of the following languages mentioned above at any level - BEGINNING - INTERMEDIATE - ADVANCED - WITHOUT YOU HAVING to FEAR THAT THE INSTRUCTION WILL BE SECOND RATE OR EXTREMELY SUPERFICIAL.

Yes, I have studied all my languages in school ALL OVER THE WORLD AT MANY LEVELS as well as used them either at home , on the MEAN streets, in everyday situations. and like that.

As a parting comment - I have taken the US GOVERNMENT FOREIGN SERVICE EXAMS IN BOTH FRENCH AND SPANISH AND WAS TESTED OUT AT THE 98 PERCENTILE OR NEAR NATIVE PROFICIENCY - SO MY READING - WRITING - SPEAKING (INCLUDING A PROPER ACCENT) DEFINITELY ARE IN ORDER.

THANK YOU FOR LISTENING - COME WORK WITH ME AND BREAK DOWN ALL THE STEREOTYPES YOU HAVE HEARD THAT AMERICANS CAN'T SPEAK FOREIGN LANGUAGES.

THANK YOU - MERCI BEAUCOUP - GRAZIE TANTE - OBRIGADO - MUY AGRADECIDO

Specifically, my academic studies include an MA degree from UCLA-USC in Latin American Studies-Spanish/Portuguese as well as a BA in French from Saint Francis College and a certificate of completion in Italian Studies from Columbia University, New York. I have studied as well at the Universidad Pontifica - Santiago, Chile; La Universidad de San Marcos - Lima, Peru; La Universidad de Salamanca - Salamanca, Spain, L'universite de Lille, France. All of these studies were completed via scholarships with honors.

Lets talk ASAP - regardless of the language so I can customize a course for you.

Thank you very much.

I have teaching experience of English as a second language in the USA, Canada, Europe and South America - my specialty is ENGLISH for Spanish speakers but I can especially help also French, Italian and Brazilian Portuguese speakers because I am also certified in these languages with Wyzant. I taught English in the French school system in Roubaix, France at the middle school level on a Fulbright Fellowhip and worked part time in the evening tutoring IBM French speaking employees as well as giving private lessons to high school and college students in the northern FRANCE metroplex of Lille, Roubaix,Tourcoin. My total experience in ESL includes teaching and privately tutoring French, Spanish, Latin American, Italian, Brazilian, Chinese, and Japanese nationals during my studies, travels and work experience.

Italian

I am a first generation Italian-American who spoke the language at home and then learned English in school. I completed a program in Italian Studies at Columbia University to bring me up to date on what is actually taught and spoken in Italy today both in the school system and on the job - to overcome the confusion of hundreds of regional dialects. My biggest Italian tutoring achievement was working on a two year program with Brinker International to train their US Sales Managers to speak Italian to open various franchise opportunities in Italy for USA franchisors. Other successes included working on projects with Xerox in Torino and Nokia in Milano facilitating language cohesion between sales forces using English, Finnish and Italian. With children from 6 to 16 I tutor using a totally different approach but still stress understanding and speaking Italian from the start. All my materials come from the Stanford University Children's Language Development program.

Excellent Tutor

His life experience is unmatched. He has the most experience of anyone out there. His lectures are interesting, thoughtful and more than anything he is a people person.

ABDULLAHI, 12 lessons with Thomas

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Thomas has been a great help in tutoring my son in French. He takes the time to go over all the materials with my son and helps his pronunciation. It is so clear that my son’s French is improving and he enjoys taking lessons with Thomas.

Anita, 18 lessons with Thomas
Tutor responded:

Your comments are greatly appreciated - your son's progress is certainly due to his hard work - especially with French pronunciation and to your providing me with exactly the materials he needs to study - thank you for using my French tutoring services.

Fantastic Tutor

Don Thomas is my Spanish tutor, and he is absolutely amazing! Not only am I learning the language, I’m also gaining insight on the cultures of various Spanish speaking countries. Not only that, my lessons are targeted at what I want to improve on. I would highly recommend!

Quynh, 6 lessons with Thomas
Tutor responded:

It's a pleasure working with you on your advanced high school Spanish projects - your ability to understand the spoken language and to reply in short but correct sentences is very good - my compliments to you for great study preparation in your early Spanish classes - lots of future exciting Spanish language adventures - don Tomas

Very Enthusiastic, Knowledgeable Tutor

Thomas is a very thorough, insightful teacher who always makes sure my son understands the topic in-depth. He helps my son understand the deeper context and meaning of many concepts making things that seem daunting at first become very clear. I would highly recommend Thomas to anyone trying to learn Spanish, even at higher levels. Fantastic tutor overall!

Tu, 8 lessons with Thomas
Tutor responded:

My pleasure to assist your son with his Spanish preparation - his concentration and desire to get it right make it easy for a tutor to be successful - congratulations on teaching him such great study habits - Thank you for choosing me to be your Spanish tutor.

Spanish to complete novice

Have only had two lessons with Thomas, but really enjoyed both of them. I was really looking forward to second lesson and plan to take more. I am totally a novice, but found I was able to feel comfortable very quickly.

Lynn, 9 lessons with Thomas
Tutor responded:

Hi Lynn - thanks for the kind comments - I really appreciate you and your husband trying to figure out what I am tutoring you in Spanish - you are doing just fine - talk to you soon - hopefully using a lot more spoken Spanish - don Tomas

An Incredible Learning Experience for an Adult Student of Spanish Language

Thomas is definitely the best foreign language tutor I have ever worked with. He possesses encyclopedic knowledge of Spanish language and culture. He designs an individualized learning plan based on the student's needs and follows through methodically. His teaching skills are superb and he easily engages the student throughout the entire lesson. Every lesson is an incredible learning experience with multiple references to Spanish and Latin American culture. My language skills and confidence level have improved remarkably in a very short period of time.

Assen, 28 lessons with Thomas
Tutor responded:

It is a pleasure working with you doctor as you increase your already superb Spanish skills. Thank you for your kind comments as you continue to develop the care and value that you provide to your Hispanic patients. I am very happy you choose to work with me. Muy agradecido - don Tomas

Great tutor for year in Brazil

Thomas worked with my daughter twice a week for the month before her year abroad in Brazil. Thomas is knowledgeable and makes learning interesting and fun. She was comfortable working with him right away, and feels ready for her big adventure.

Mindy, 7 lessons with Thomas
Tutor responded:

Pleasure working with your daughter, Mindy - I'm positive she will come back from Brazil speaking just great Portuguese - and thanks for your kind comments about my language tutoring ability. - Tomas

A joy to work with

As I fumble through the cobwebs of my high school French from 30 years ago, Thomas is warm, encouraging, dynamic and interesting. Really looking forward to continuing my lessons with Thomas.

Amanda, 11 lessons with Thomas
Tutor responded:

Kind comments, Amanda, greatly appreciated - you did a good job with high school French - that is obvious - looking forward to helping you with that next step into conversational French that really works but is still fun - merci bien - M. Thomas

Best Spanish Tutor

My son was struggling learning high school Spanish, so we began online tutoring through Wyzant with Thomas. My son is not only learning the language, but our entire family is learning about the various Latino cultures as our son relays what he is learning from Thomas’ vast experiences. As school is wrapping up for the summer, my son’s lessons are coming to an end, however, my son loves tutoring with Thomas so much that he wants to continue tutoring to master the language even more! In fact, and this is totally unbelievable for a teen, my 15-year-old boy is going to mow lawns and dog sit over the summer months and wants to use his earnings to continue tutoring with Thomas! That is how much he loves these tutoring sessions! Thank you, don Tomas, for being so patient with our boy and teaching him to love the Spanish language!
