Overview

I am a bilingual professional and a ukulele enthusiast with the organizational and instructional skills to move you towards your goals. Holding degrees in Political Science and Spanish, I have experience teaching language, communication, and music which dates back to 2010 when I founded the first Ukulele Club at The Ohio State University. Starting in 2012, I began teaching ESL to refugees and immigrants with the Columbus Literacy Council. After advancing to lead instructor I assumed a post with the Peace Corps in Guatemala where I specialized in program development and implementation.

Cyrus is a wonderful Spanish teacher. I have met with him once a week where we conduct the majority of each lesson in Spanish. I wanted more practice on speaking/listening and build confidence in speaking to others in Spanish. He always comes prepared with customized material for you at each lesson, but, if I bring any material or topics of my own, is able to effectively teach and tailor the lesson to that. He is able to recognize where there have been gaps in my education of Spanish, and is able to both challenge me in areas I need to be challenged while also meeting me at my level in areas where that's what is best. He speaks clearly, is incredibly patient, and explains things very well. I've had a great experience with Cyrus, and recognize him a a teacher who goes above and beyond for his students.
