About Tony

I began my world languages teaching career 1997 shortly after retirement from a US Government Agency. My area of expertise was foreign languages and foreign affairs. I have taught French (Exploratory, Levels I and II) at the middle and high school levels. Additionally, I have taught Spanish (Levels I, II and III) at the middle and high school education levels and I briefly served as an Adjunct Professor at the university level. I am multi-lingual. Professional work experience, travel, and/or study abroad included 32 countries; target countries were located in Mexico, Central and South America, and Western Europe.

Over the course of my teaching career, I tutored before and after regular school hours for students assigned to my classes. Currently, I am not under contract; instead, I substitute in world languages at select local schools.

I label myself as a Spanish language communications specialist. I teach my students to read, write, speak, and listen as if he or she were preparing to take up residence in a Spanish-speaking country. Hence, I emphasize active vocabulary acquisition skills and usage, proper grammar usage, and various role play scenarios.

I strongly encourage those who wish individualized instruction from a fluent Spanish speaker to contact me. I am enthusiastic about my skills and equally anxious to teach anyone who wishes to acquire a solid foundation in the Spanish language and culture. My enthusiasm is matched by my passion for the Spanish language!

Spanish

I am a former foreign affairs and foreign language specialist with several US Government agencies. My work involved travel to and foreign residence in several Spanish-speaking countries. Upon retirement, I began teaching world languages. I have a B.A. in Spanish and French and I have completed several graduate-level education courses. My emphasis is on vocabulary use and acquisition, grammar usage, and conversation.
