Hello, there amazing fellow humans! My name is George E. I have over 15+ years of internationally combined experience in teaching Spanish. I also have experience in teaching in schools all other general subjects. I am confident I can help you and/or your child on your educational journey towards becoming fluent in Spanish. Here is more about my skills, experience and how I can help you.
NOTE: I am willing to Travel Further than a 10-mile radius if the tutoring is a 2-hr minimum. :)
I am bilingual in Spanish. I took 6 years of Advanced placed Spanish courses. I have been a translator for international groups. I have done translation work with the Peruvian government. I know the in's and out's and mechanics of the Spanish language and can teach it in a way that tailors to different learning styles (i. e. , if you're a visual learner, we can use more visual aids and etc.).
I also have previous experience as a journalist and am a published writer and have written for The Huffington Post for the last 5 years and also currently write with Elite Daily.
I am finishing my Master's Degree in Social & Cultural Theory from The University of Staffordshire. I have taught in primary and secondary schools (internationally), universities, and in online courses. I have also taught philosophy.
I am confident I can meet your needs.
I have worked with toddlers to adults, to students with special needs. I love what I do. Its imparting knowledge, a new perspective and inspiring others that makes this incredibly important to me.
So, how can I help you? I bring the 6-years of educational training. I was raised by a native Hispanic speaker. I have over 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience combined. I have been a translator for governments, community groups, and churches that travel to Hispanic speaking countries.
I teach to your learning style. Whether that be tactile, auditory, visual and/or a combination I am laid-back but use goals and benchmarks as a way to guide and encourage your Spanish speaking journey. Get in touch today!
I teach my pupils a classical education curriculum, based on the educational standards of Western Civilization until the mid 20th century or so.
I specialize in (English only) grammar, arithmetic, geometry, natural sciences and astronomy, music and art, politics, and philosophy. Almost every lesson also includes a section on geography (and cartography) and history to give context to the topics studied. Be prepared to study writings and cultures of Western Civilization: from Greco-Roman Hellenism to Catholic scholasticism, to the Renaissance and Anglo-American Enlightenment. Looking backwards at the transitions between these eras, what might come next?
I am able to scale these lessons for any age group. One is never too young to learn the basics nor too old to contemplate the Masters. As I do not teach any languages, my courses will be 100% English or English translations.
While parts of the Bible will be read and discussed, my lessons are largely secular, unbiased, and academic in nature. These are not Sunday School lessons!
I absolutely love that I get to lift up a generation that has inherited a fallen society. I put the academics back into academia. You won't find the Judeo-Marxist critiques and deconstruction of the Occident with my lessons, nor will you need to purchase $400 textbooks. The readings from my lessons, and the wisdom they impart, are all freely available online to the entire world. I will provide all of the reading material for free in a format readable on any computer, smartphone, or e-book reader. I will even attempt to find an audiobook for free if requested.
New students: I discuss the needs of new students and plan a customized lesson based on their needs and/or areas of interest. Please allow two weeks of planning time for a new student's first few lessons. Education is not "one size fits a classroom of 30."
Modest pricing: $100 for a one hour bi-weekly lesson. I give my pupils a full two weeks to read the materials and write about the lesson's readings. I meet all students at their nearest public library or we can conduct lessons online.
