For me, the moment a student understands an explanation and learns a concept it is a miracle, a miracle which gives me great satisfaction and keeps me motivating the student to continue learning.

I invite you to give me the opportunity to help you. You won´t regret it!

Spanish

I am a Spanish instructor by profession. I just don't happen to speak the language. I have studied it and taught it for over 40 years, using a unique method designed by myself with excellent results. In addition to general vocabulary, attention is also paid to any particular vocabulary based on the student´s needs. Practice exercises are also designed according to the needs of the student. The first thing I do in my sessions is establish the difference between verbs "ser" & "estar", which both translate into English as "to be". This is very confusing for foreign-language speakers. Then we continue with the present, past, and future tenses of the 16 most used verbs. Verbs are the core in any language, and it happens to be that it is the most difficult thing to learn/teach in the Spanish language; that is why I emphasize in verbs. Vocabulary is learned along the way.

Brilliant!

We have only had 2 sessions with Rene so far, but will continue to use him weekly throughout the entire school year. My son, who was not too enthusiastic about Spanish II, told me last night that he actually wants to learn Spanish and believes he will be fluent by the end of the school year. Rene's teaching style engages the student and they want to learn. I HIGHLY recommend Rene! This is going to be successful year. Thank you, Rene! :)

Carol, 25 lessons with Rene

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Rene is tutoring my son in Spanish. He makes Spanish easier to understand. After one tutoring session my son already is understanding his assignments better. He finally feels like he is starting to make headway. Definitely recommend Rene for tutoring.
