Very student-centered. I would be happy to tutor someone attempting to learn Spanish, or someone who is having dificulty in a Spanish class. I emphasize conversational ability, but also can teach or help anyone having dificulty with grammer, spelling, vocabulary, verb conjugations, etc.
I am retired. Taught Spanish and Latin American history for 35 years. Have travelled extensively in Mexico, Ecuador, Spain, Peru, Central America, Cuba, Colombia, and Brazil. I also am fluent in Portuguese. Have a genuine love of the Spanish-speaking world and encourage others to learn the language.
