Su di me

(I will be away Sep. 19-24 with little to no internet access)[For new students: Please contact me before signing up to discuss a few issues. As a matter of policy, I always offer a no-questions-asked, same-day, money-back guarantee, giving either a 50% refund credit or a 100% refund credit, whichever the student asks for.] Hi, my name's Art. I started teaching ESL 33 years ago in Salamanca Spain, then continued part-time while also teaching Spanish as a graduate student at Johns Hopkins University where I received an M.A. in Hispanic Literature in 1988. I retired from another career about 6 years ago when my Venezuelan wife and I moved back to her home country, and here I also happily returned to my first career of teaching ESL. I began teaching here at the university level at the Universidad Arturo Michelena, but then realized I felt called to tutoring one student at a time. I have taught students from age 9- 54 years old, all levels, basic to very advanced. Many of my students were/are preparing for TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge, NATO, or Trinity exams etc. so I have plenty of experience helping there. I got to module 3 of 5 with the ICAL TEFL institute based in London for certification in TEFL, but then realized that those courses are aimed primarily at classroom teaching methods, and have little relevance to one-on-one tutoring. If you want to know my qualifications, I suggest reading the comments of my students. They are the best judges of tutor quality.If you need help with exam preparation, CV editing, job interviews, pronunciation, presentations, etc. I'd be glad to help. Best of luck to you in your English studies, and remember never get discouraged. The key is hard work, and lots of patience and determination. Cheers!
