About James

With a passion for languages I studied Spanish and French from high school through graduate studies, learning other languages on my own. I know what it takes to learn a language, overcome its difficulties and enjoy the benefits it can provide, both personally and professionally. Living and working in Mexico for 7 years, and working/traveling in Mexico and South America an additional 4 years has given me practical use of Spanish and an understanding of the Latin culture.

As a graduate student, I taught and tutored students in Spanish while working on my Masters. Living in Mexico afforded me the opportunity to tutor an executive and his family in Spanish, helping him to communicate more effectively with his peers, employees and within the business arena. It facilitated the family's ability to deal with everyday life in a foreign country.

For students, I will tailor the tutoring to their current studies, utilizing their books and providing other exercises and support material to help them in their weak points.

"Very helpful and patient!"

Thank you Mary for your comments. Your son will do very well this summer, just tell him to be sure that if he begins to have doubts, do not wait to get help. Each lesson is a learning process and many get lost in not understanding the English equivalents when the exist.
He is a very smart kid.

"Works well with my soon"

Thank you very much for the feedback. Your son is a very smart kid and will do well in anything he sets his mind to do. I look forward to working with him.

Sincerely,

Jim C.

Spanish tutorial

I've thoroughly enjoyed my tutorial sessions with James. He has given me several helpful tips for improving my Spanish vocabulary and reading capabilities. Our conversations in Spanish have been very helpful in getting accustomed to hearing and comprehending the Spanish language. James speaks very clearly making him easy to understand. I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning
