Overview

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".

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.

Gregorio was very patient and kind. He gave me grammar and spelling tips also. He made me feel very comfortable doing something that can be difficult and intimidating. I highly recommend him.

Gregorio is really an excellent teacher. He adjusts his teaching to the level of the student, and he prepares well to help the student get the most from the lesson. Thank you.

Absolutely wonderful first Spanish lesson! Excellent teacher. Very kind and patient. Explains things so that even confusing things make sense. Makes sure you know he's always there to help and you never feel as though you're a bother. Cannot wait for more lessons!

My son just took his first lesson with Senor Gregorio and he was very pleased. He asked to take the class every other day since he has a couple of weeks off before school starts.
