About Werther

I have been teaching Spanish for more than 15 years. It is my first language and I am focused just on it. I teach at all levels: elementary, middle, high school and college. I also teach adults, designing individual programs according to their needs and skills. I teach Spanish one on one or online in the simplest way, so you can apply your lessons in your daily basis and see the results immediately.

My certification as Spanish teacher is from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL). I also have a Master Degree from Marshall University in Adult and Technical Education with a minor in Educational Foundations among two certifications as Senior Medical Interpreter from Area Health Education Center in Virginia and Penn State University in Pennsylvania.

I have designed Spanish programs for hospital's personnel in Pennsylvania, and also work as Senior Certified Medical Interpreter. In Spanish, I have works in poetry, customer services and different articles for magazines. References upon request.

My rate is $35.00 for formal Spanish class/tutoring according to the program and distance. I design the material for you, additionally to your regular book. I can go to your place, you can come to my place or somewhere in between. I also teach online as I said before; whatever that works for the student.

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

For Spanish speakers, I learned English as a second language 15 years ago at Marshall University. After that, I received my Master Degree in Adult Education and two certifications as Medical Interpreter.

I went trough the difficult process of acculturation and learning English, therefore this experience is really helpful to help people to succeed with the same goal.

Para las personas que hablan Español, yo aprendí Inglés como segunda lengua hace 15 años en la Universidad de Marshall. Después de eso, obtuve mi Maestría en Educación de Adultos y dos certificaciones como Intérprete Médico.

Pasé por el difícil proceso de aculturación y aprender Inglés, por lo tanto esa experiencia es útil para ayudar a otras personas a triunfar con la mísma meta

Werther is a skilled Spanish instructor who recognizes the differences in learning styles and needs of adult students.
