Education is one of the most valuable things you can acquire. Knowledge stays with you wherever you go and you can use it in the less unexpected situation.

I was born and raise on Peru, South America. Spanish is my native language.
I also hold a Bachelor's on Biological Science from Roosevelt University with a minor in Chemistry. I have take classes like Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience. Also General and Organic Chemistry. General Physics and Math up to Calculus. I offer tutoring on Biology, General Chemistry and Math.

Being bilingual have been a great advantage for me, especially at work. That's why I offer Spanish lessons and tutoring, from beginning to advance levels.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

How you communicate is especially important in business, professional and social situations. 'Not that speaking English like an American is the end all, be all, but it can assist you in communicating your ideas as rapidly as possible. Misunderstandings are less frequent, when what you have said is comprehended quickly. Ultimately everyone can speak English with clear and proper pronunciation; I can give you the tips and tricks to assist you in excelling. My background with singing required that I learn the 'IPA' or International Phonetic Alphabet. This training has assisted me in learning ways in which to decipher the spoken word (as well as singing in various languages). My background in teaching English has also prepared me to understand various idioms, 'cliches', jargon, slang, and euphemisms. My students in accent reduction will find that I have a wellspring of information and methods for reducing an accent. In working together via our private lessons, you will have practice ...

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

"Jean-Luc is an excellent teacher as he tailors the lesson to the student's needs. During my lessons, I have greatly improved in speaking, reading and writing. There are many fun activities and just having a conversation with Jean-Luc is fun. He is a native-born French speaker, which I think makes a big difference. I wish I could give Jean-Luc more than 5 stars! He's the best!"
