About Brandon


Bio

My name is Brandon D. I'm Wyzant's #1 Spanish Tutor based on hours, ratings, and feedback combined. It is the only subject that I teach. I love helping someone who feels like they can't learn the language to gain confidence in themselves that they can learn it, and then do it. I'm 35 years old (16 years teaching and tutoring experience with clients ages 4-78) and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish on April 22nd, 2011 from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah.

My name is Brandon D. I'm Wyzant's #1 Spanish Tutor based on hours, ratings, and feedback combined. It is the only subject that I teach. I love helping someone who feels like they can't learn the language to gain confidence in themselves that they can learn it, and then do it. I'm 35 years old (16 years teaching and tutoring experience with clients ages 4-78) and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish on April 22nd, 2011 from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. I graduated with Departmental Honors in Spanish and was selected by three of my professors in the Education Department to be one of thirty five alumni at the university to be on the Professor's Honor Roll. I taught Spanish 1, 2, and 3 as a Spanish Instructor at a private college (OWATC) for two years. All of the students grew in conversational Spanish skills, had fun, and I absolutely loved my experience with them. I held two main Spanish Tutor positions at Weber State University for 1 1/2 years and helped other students progress in their courses. I took Spanish in junior high and high school. I became fluent in speaking, reading, writing, and translating while serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mexico for approximately two years by listening to the Mexican people, sharing religious beliefs and eternal truths, translating, studying, and applying new knowledge immediately and frequently. I lived/visited, served, and learned in La Cruz de Elota, Ceuta, El Dorado, Costa Rica (city), El Dorado, Tanques, Escuinapa, Mazatlán, La Paz, Culiacán, Chilillos, and Rosario, Sinaloa for a total of 1 1/4 years. I also lived and served in San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas for another 7 1/2 months. The life lessons that I learned with the Mexican people are priceless and some of the most valuable lessons I have ever learned. I am and will be grateful and blessed forever from experiencing and learning the Mexican culture. I am also an Eagle Scout (2002).

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My son said he enjoyed the class. He would like to schedule further lessons as well. He was quite informative. Aaditya is looking to enhance his understanding on certain concepts

Gayathri, 2 lessons with Brandon

Interesting and fun

My son (8 years old) looks forward to Spanish with Brandon. He came out of the first session saying “that was fun, I want to work with him again”. Brandon thinks of interactive games to make the lessons fun!

Michelle, 7 lessons with Brandon

Knowledgeable and engaging tutor!

Brandon was terrific. My 8 year old came out of the lesson excited to learn more! I think the proof is in the pudding. It's summer break and my son is asking for additional lessons!

Knowledgeable

Thank you for speaking in Spanish during my tutorial I understand the conjugation better You make it fun and get me thinking through speaking it out loud which makes me really focus on the verbs present past or future. Thank you for your patience and attention.

Knowledgeable and makes learning Spanish easy

Brandon has helped my son the past 2 weeks with his Spanish II class. My son feels more confident so far. His test is Thursday, so it will be the real test indeed.

Rosemary, 43 lessons with Brandon

VERY patient tutor. Thankfully

Cleared up my confusion about the Difference between object and indirect object pronouns. Very much worth it. Glad I found this website. The only downside to the lesson was that the hour went by so quickly that I didn’t even realize it.

Great Tutor!

Brandon has been working with me for about 11 weeks now and my grade in my Spanish class has gone up from an F to an A! He makes understanding each topic very simple and easy. He is better than most of my Spanish teachers. I would highly recommend!! :-)
