About HUNTER

I am a retired person. I held a Provisional Virginia Teaching License for three years with certification in Spanish and English as a Second Language. I have taught Spanish in both public and Catholic schools. I taught English as a Second language at Martinsville Middle School in Martinsville, VA. I lived the first eighteen years of my early life in Spanish speaking countries because my father was in the US Foreign Service. I have lived in Spain, Paraguay, Argentina, Panamá and El Salvador. I am a graduate of Louisiana State University with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Spanish literature.

I am married, with two adult adopted Colombian children. My spouse is from Colombia and we speak Spanish at home.

I worked for the federal government as a computer specialist for 20 years, and before that, I worked for fifteen years teaching English as a Second Language to Hispanic students.

I tutor the way I teach language. I work on grammar, vocabulary, comprehension and conversation. I use the target language as much as possible with the students to foster comprehension and confidence in the language. I use repetition of grammar, especially verb conjugations, to make sure students have grasped the grammar. I am also a free lance translator/interpreter, translating/interpreting from English into Spanish and Spanish into English.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I taught English as a Second language off and on for ten years at the Sanz School of Languages in Washington, DC. I also taught English as a Second Language at Martinsville Middle School in Martinsville, Virginia for one year. I held a Virginia Teaching Certificate with both Spanish and ESL endorsements.

Spanish

As I already mentioned, I taught Spanish in both public and Catholic schools. I also worked as a translator prior to retirement. I am well versed in teaching grammar so that students can understand concepts that are difficult for English speakers. I also have experience teaching English as a second languagecto non English Speakers.
