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.

Learning Spanish the right way!

I have been working with George for over 4 months. He thoroughly enjoys what he does. His method of teaching and flow of material has been successful in my development of Spanish. I have other friends who use Spanish tutors and I feel that George is above par when comparing level of knowledge, teaching style and material provided in order to reach your goals. I have certainly been challenged and had my skill set tested thorough out the course of my time with him. I highly recommend George as your next Spanish tutor.

Hands Down, The Best Spanish Tutor You Will Find

Where should I start? George is thorough, consultative, and has a calm and encouraging demeanor. I came to George with Spanglish speaking skills at best. I'd taken about 4-5 years of Spanish throughout high school and college but I'd say I was a pretty rusty. George started with a diagnostic approach, providing a mixture of oral and written exercises to gauge where I was. Then he provided weekly study materials for me to prepare for our weekly meetings. He was never late for a meeting, always flexible, and always very pleasant and eager to help. He is fluent in the language and seems to truly enjoy teaching. I would highly recommend him! He is very organized which is something that is very important to me because I tend to be all over the place lol. Structure, organization , and light heartedness are my jam and it's certainly what you are paying for when you are working with George. Cheers!

knowledgeable, patient and great on communication

George helped my daughter review fundamental knowledge to catch up with the class content. He gave enough help for my daughter to figure out the homework by herself. We really like his teaching style.

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!
