About George

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.
