About Chris

Hi there! First of all I am NOT a Spanish tutor, I am a language coach! My job is train you, motivate you, drill you, help you design goals and rewards, and make sure you achieve the results you need. I understand that most people here may not be passionate about what they are learning, and that's OK because with me you don't have to be. I will bring all the drive and energy to the table that you need to get focused and get fast results.

Not only have I been formerly trained in Spanish grammar, conversation, writing, translation and interpretation (and I have the degree to prove it), but I have almost two years of experience living in both Spain and South America - conversing in Spanish with native speakers daily and gaining both the accent and fluency that classroom experience simply cannot give you. I also have nine months of classroom teaching experience and have coached many students in private settings.

I look forward to helping you get the results you need!

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 to high school students in Chile through a program administered by the Chilean Ministry of Education. I also possess a superior command of English vocabulary, grammar and sentence structure, scoring a 165/170 (95th percentile) on the verbal portion of the GREs. I am well versed in effective and proven teaching methods for learning a second language through both my firsthand experience learning Spanish and my experience teaching English.

SAT Reading

I scored 750/800 (98th percentile) on the reading portion of the SATs and 165/170 (95th percentile) on the reading portion of the GREs. I am very familiar with standardized test taking strategies and test prep - having personally learned and utilized the tactics and skills necessary to achieve Ivy League level test scores. I have experience tutoring one on one as well as classroom teaching experience.

Spanish

I have a B.A. in Spanish from Virginia Commonwealth University. I also have almost two years of combined experience living in Spain and South America - I spoke Spanish with native speakers everyday and acquired a level of fluency that cannot be taught in school. I have classroom teaching experience as well as experience with one-on-one tutoring.
