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.

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.

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. I 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 and to your learning experience the joy that I find in it every day.

Pro Active and Engaged Tutor

George is a great addition to our team for success. He surprised us by going an extra mile by purchasing my son’s text book so that he could be fully abreast and involved in his lessons!

Lynn, 2 lessons with George

Knowledgeable and Conscientious Tutor

George helped me review, edit and rewrite my paper paper. He not only helped me make my paper better but also made sure I understood my mistakes. I look forward to working with him again.

Mary, 4 lessons with George

Very patient with my teenage son.

My son is already very comfortable with George after one lesson and he was very gracious with his time in spite of the fact that my son was a little unprepared. Thanks, George!

Great first lesson

I had my first lesson with George and he seems to be a very knowledgeable teacher with a lot of experience. I think that we will be a good fit and he will really be able to make me a much more proficient speaker. I am looking forward to my next lesson.

Peter, 8 lessons with George

Knowledgeable and creative tutor

I appreciate the time George took to get to know where my Spanish has "holes" and how he is creating a personalized program for me to learn. He is very well prepared for the Spanish work and is very patient with technological issues.

AWESOME TEACHER

beyond amazing. He's truly great at what he does. We immediately got to work and I'm confident in his abilities. If you're looking for a teacher look no further.

Aaron, 2 lessons with George

Prepared and patient tutor

My first lesson with George was great! He was very prepared, knowledgeable, and patient. He did a great job of assessing my skill level, and adjusting his lesson plan accordingly. He is very responsive outside of the lesson and provides resource recommendations to study outside of lessons. Really looking forward to my next lesson.

Randy, 7 lessons with George

Knowledgeable, friendly tutor.

George was able to adapt the lesson to my needs and showed great knowledge when answering the variety of questions I threw at him. He is very personable and shows enthusiasm to see me succeed.

Brian, 4 lessons with George

Excellent instructor

Two lessons so far but I am very encouraged. The focus on grammar is very helpful for me. George has a strong command of the Skype format for effective remote lessons including file sharing and text supplementing the instruction. He quickly assessed my baseline level and starting challenging but digestible lessons. Highly recommend.
