About Carlos

I am a native Spanish speaker from San Juan, Puerto Rico, where I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education - Spanish Language Arts. I lived in California for 7 years where I was a certified teacher and taught Spanish classes to middle school students in the Palmdale School District just north of Los Angeles. I recently taught Spanish from Kindergarten through 9th grade at a private local school in Oakton, VA.

I also have a Master of Divinity degree and have served as minister in Spanish-speaking as well as English-speaking churches in northern Virginia where I have lived with my family for the past 9 years. My children are students in the Fairfax County Public Schools.

I have also served as a Program Facilitator for Liberty's Promise, a renowned non profit organization in Alexandria, with their Civic Engagement for Beginning English Language Learners (CE-BELL) - their after-school program for Wheaton High School students in Maryland.

I enjoy working and interacting with students. While teaching in general has been something I have done in my professional career as a bilingual teacher and minister, teaching and helping students master the Spanish language is something that brings me joy in particular. My priority is to always see that my students' needs are met through informal assessments, reinforcement, interactive practice and time for practice alone. I strive for correction and proper usage, always giving and receiving feedback, and always seeking that my students enjoy what they are learning.

I hope to be able to work with you and continue to learn and practice together the wonderful lengua espaƱola.

Please contact me with your questions or comments. I would love to assist you!

Enthusiasm and commitment

Carlos clearly loves tutoring, and it shows in his cheerfulness, his energy, and his dedication to getting results. He takes a personal interest, and his questions and observations really help to draw the student out. You don't need to feel embarrassed at your imperfect Spanish-- he encourages you to talk, engages fully with you, and gently corrects. A lesson with Carlos doesn't feel like a chore
