—Native English speaker
—Native Spanish speaker
—37 years old, from Los Angeles California, USA
—West Coast North American accent
—Standard Mexican accent. Both of my parents are from Mexico and we spoke Spanish in the home. I learned to read and write Spanish in grade school, continued to study Spanish on my own time, along with taking classes in High School and College. Have traveled to Mexico City and Colombia.

I grew up Los Angeles, California and currently reside in Orange County, California. For four years I taught English to students grades K-12; now mostly teach Spanish since many students want a teacher who is also a native English speaker. I can help you to learn or to improve either your English or Spanish. I have textbooks we can use (if you have your own materials we can use those as well) plus a variety of homework materials if so desired.

—AA in Liberal Arts from Rancho Santiago College
—Worked as an English grammar editor for six years
—Co-author of two books written in English: 'The Padrino Tales' and 'The Comedy Abyss'
—Can read and write Spanish, have taken 3 courses in Spanish at local jr. colleges: Intro to Spanish 1 & 2, Spanish for Mexican-Americans.
—Have done translation work and voice overs in Spanish

Fausto is very knowledgeable and patient with my son. His pronunciation and grammar in Spanish is very clear and concise. He speaks slow enough for us to understand. I am a native English speaker and can attest that he speaks and understands English clearly. My son is eleven years old and is able to follow along with this instructor's lessons. My son is going to an online private school so he goes to lessons during the school day. He helps my son to correct simple mistakes in grammar and pronunciation for his Spanish class. He is always on time for the lesson. Quick response to questions! He replies to the questions I have via email within a day's time frame. He does not watch the clock during lesson times. Most instructors leave the minute the scheduled hour is over. He makes sure that my son understands each lesson thoroughly before saying goodbye on the webcam (sometimes staying an extra ten minutes). This truly is unexpected. I highly recommend Fausto for Spanish tutoring!
