Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I started learning Spanish on an AFS trip to Montevideo, Uruguay in 1987. After taking 3 years of French in High School, I was given a Oxford pocket Spanish Guide by my host family and was indoctrinated into Spanish the old fashioned way- Immersion! Luckily, the verbs were similar and pronunciation was much easier than French. By the 2nd month I was dreaming in Spanish. I have tutored Spanish beginners with not experience, at the university level, and they have passed their classes with high marks (A). I have communicated with students and parents in my career as a teacher with the CCSD with clarity and confidence. Spanish is a wonderful language and I'd like to open up all of its possibilities for you, whether for business or pleasure. I'll even be able to help you with your accent. I'm looking forward to teaching you soon. John
