Hi, my name’s Steven and I’m interested in tutoring Spanish and ESL on Tutors.com. A bit about myself: I come from a Latin American family, so I grew up speaking Spanish. While I was in high school, I had several friends who were Latin American immigrants. I absorbed Spanish language and Latin American culture, and grew to feel that I understood the cultural and linguistic differences between the United States and Latin America.
While I was in college, I enrolled in and excelled in several Spanish courses. Also, I helped Latino immigrant children with their homework after school over the course of a year. During my time in law school and afterwards, I volunteered for two local pro-bono legal organizations. At those organizations, I helped Spanish-speaking clients with tax-related issues.
In terms of my methodology for both Spanish and ESL lessons, I can tutor students of all ages. I cater my lessons to each student’s needs – when I begin tutoring a student, I find out what they’d specifically like to improve, and base my lessons on their goals. If a student would like to improve on a general level, then each lesson would typically be a mix of vocabulary on a certain topic (e.g. vacation, work, or the family), one or two topics in grammar (e.g. the difference between "por" and "para" or contractions in English), and culture/reading/conversation as time permits. However, this curriculum is flexible and customizable. Also, I can assign additional exercises to take home if the student wishes.
I find it greatly rewarding to help others grow in their language abilities, and would like to help you do the same. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me via Tutors.com. I look forward to working with you!
