About George


Bio

Aside from having studied Spanish in college, I have learned Spanish in large part as a result my business dealings with companies in South America over the past 8 years. My job required that I interact with companies and individuals in Argentina, Colombia and Panama. On several occasions those business requirements also provided me the opportunity to travel to those countries and meet with business people and engineers. I have also experienced life in Mexico, Costa Rica and Bolivia.

Aside from having studied Spanish in college, I have learned Spanish in large part as a result my business dealings with companies in South America over the past 8 years. My job required that I interact with companies and individuals in Argentina, Colombia and Panama. On several occasions those business requirements also provided me the opportunity to travel to those countries and meet with business people and engineers. I have also experienced life in Mexico, Costa Rica and Bolivia.

The practical knowledge of Spanish gained through my career experiences has allowed me to contribute to my community, mostly in the form volunteer work at my church where I perform translation tasks of literature that is to be published in both English and Spanish. This led to private teaching and tutoring opportunities among members of the church and later to tutoring engagements throughout a larger community.

I have now been tutoring Spanish at various levels for the past 4 years. I currently teach students in middle school, high school, and university as well as several in the business world who seek to become conversant in Spanish for career related reasons. The approach I take with each student depends on their current level of proficiency, their goals and their learning pace. In addition to teaching native English speakers, I have recently started to work with students who were born into a Spanish speaking family but, having attending public schools in the U.S., have lost their ability to converse in Spanish and want to regain it for personal or family reasons.

I truly love Spanish and am confident that I can bring to you, and to your learning experience, the joy that I find in it every day.

The Best!

I've been working with George for several months now, and can honestly say he's the best foreign language instructor I've ever had. George makes it simple to understand the rules of the language (which is probably the hardest part!) so you can apply them in whatever situation arises. Uses fantastic resources, holds you accountable, and challenges you. Super friendly as well!

Organized, committed and nice Spanish tutor

My 16 year old has worked with George for 4 months to prep for her AP Spanish exam. George has been very conscientious about preparing her for the exam. He is serious and does not waste time. My daughter says he is very nice and helpful. Regardless of how she does on the test, we think he is a great tutor and does his best to help his students. She has definitely improved her Spanish skills from working with him. Thank you!!

George is a great teacher is listen to your concern and teaches in a way that best serves you. I would recommend him to anyone even if you just needed a refresher.

Excellent!

George was able to meet with our son to review for a Spanish test the next day. Even though it was last minute, he took the time to make sure the technology worked with our son prior to his lesson. George was also able to help our son grasp the concepts in a very short amount of time, to which he received a 93 on his test! Previous tests and quizzes were well below the C range. I highly recommend George!

Leslie, 1 lesson with George

Great start!

First lesson down: The best thing about George as relayed to me by my son, “He’s really friendly!” Best quote overheard being said by my son to George, “You are a god, I learned more in an hour than I did last year!” So far so good! We’re making this a recurring gig!

Great help with a test

George explained difficult material and helped my son to ace his exam! The process of arranging for a lesson was easy and efficient and George was prepared and punctual. He even provided some supplementary materials prior to our first lesson to facilitate the discussion. Great experience all around! We will definitely go back. Thank you, George!

Reviewed imperfect and predarate - It was very informative! George answered all of my questions and is clearly knowledgeable!! He's also very flexible and helpful when I have a lot of questions. Thank you.

Paula, 27 lessons with George

Very knowledgeable and easy to work with

George has been very helpful in reviving my Spanish, which was left neglected for several years. We've been reviewing the more intricate aspects of grammar that I had forgotten. We've also been focusing on reading comprehension and more complex expressions. I highly recommend George!
