My name is Brandon. I'm 30 years old and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish on April 22nd, 2011 from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. I was a Spanish tutor for 1 1/2 years there. I took Spanish in junior high and high school. I became fluent in speaking, reading, writing, and translating while serving an LDS mission in Mexico. I love the Spanish language and have enjoyed sharing it with many friends of a variety of ages. I have been tutoring for Wyzant Tutoring for several years now and enjoy how I am not only allowed, but encouraged to cater to the needs of each student and their individual needs.
I love tutoring because I can focus on and cater to the needs and life of my students at their pace and teach exactly what they want to learn. I also like to help my students use the language in real-life situations when they are ready, to boost their confidence, knowledge, and experience using the Spanish language. I'm eager to meet you interested students! Arriba! Please contact me soon to get started. My name is Brandon.

The lesson that Brandon tutored me in Spanish went awesome. There was no hurry to complete the session. Brandon also helped me with some of the words I had trouble saying.

I had a great time learning Spanish. The heck with the 5 star rating I'd rather rate Brandon with 100 stars!
I have taught ESL classes to adults since February 2010 until now (2011). I was a volunteer ESL teacher at the Weber County Main Library in Ogden for 6 months. I've worked independently with Strategic Staffing in downtown Ogden teaching classes for two months. I've also taught Spanish-speakers in their homes. I love tutoring! I have a Bachelors of Arts in Spanish which is really valuable to be able to teach English. I'm able to explain misunderstood grammar concepts/rules to those who speak Spanish. I'm also able to understand what their deepest concerns are in the language without confusion.
