Business English

I tutored a native Spanish speaking student online to learn to write business reports, letters, memos and other forms of business writing. He passed his college class.

Conversational English

I currently am tutoring a native Spanish speaker who had no English in the beginning. She wanted to be able to communicate with her kid's teachers, doctors and the usual people that one runs into every day. Her kids proudly call her English speaking.

Reading and writing English

I am a freelance writer and have been for years. Many of my articles have been published on popular websites.

About Tutor

I lived in Los Angeles California for many years and was a literacy tutor there for five years. I moved to Oregon in 2002 and have been a literacy tutor here for seven years. I have tutored many Spanish-speaking students both face-to-face and online with successful results.


Besides that mentioned above, I have been a freelance writer for 12 years where I have been called upon to proofread, edit and write numerous articles on a variety of subjects.

Teaching Approach

A tutor is a coach. I let the student lead the way and come up with a plan that best suits them. The plan can change as the student becomes more proficient. I believe that the best learning environment is a comfortable one.
