About this tutor

I have always had a passion for teaching. Although I mostly tutored mathematics during my time in college I did also help my freinds out with their spanish. I believe I can provide an excellent service as I am a native spanish and english speaker. I also offer excellent flexibility in scheduling and costs.

I love working with people. The past year has definitely been tough working from home. As of recently starting work again in person has been the highlight of my year as I get to interact with my friends and co-workers face to face. If you choose Miguel's Spanish Tutoring I guarantee we will have a great working relationship that we can both benefit and learnfrom.

    There were several times during my college career where I would go to Michael to proofread my Spanish essays. Instead of just reading them and correcting he would read along with me and help me understand some of the mistakes I would make. He is an easy going and amicable teacher and provides an enjoyable tutoring experience.
