My name is Gregorio M. I am a native speaker of Spanish with a very clear pronunciation. I am a Spanish instructor at Washtenaw Community College. I have a degree in chemistry and a master degree in environmental chemistry.
I have been working as a Spanish tutor in the Ann Arbor area since 2009.
I can teach you all aspects of Spanish language: listening comprehension, pronunciation, reading capacity and analysis, writing, grammar rules, slang and colloquial Spanish, academic Spanish, conversational fluency. Additionally, I could give you, if you are interested, information about Hispanic culture and customs, and more.
You can ask me anything about Spanish and get an explanation. If you ask me "Why do people say this or that in Spanish?", you will get a reasonable answer. I'm not one of those teachers who say "It's just because it's like that in Spanish".

My first lesson was wonderful! I appreciate Mr. Gregorio's willingness to give extra information about the way things are said in different countries and answer any question. Everything was explained clearly and thoroughly. I am extremely excited to continue my lessons and become fluent in Spanish! :)

Great instructor, thorough in answering questions. A few times he was late coming into the session due to previous sessions running longer but he always completed the full hour.

This was my first lesson but I really enjoyed learning the different pronunciations and meanings of Spanish words and how they vary depending on where you are in the world (Spanish from Spain vs. Spanish from Latin America), it was definitely a pleasure and I look forward to my next lesson.
