Although I am accustomed to teaching students who are learning English as a second language, I can also help tutor students who need extra help in their English and grammar classes.

"Hi there! My name is Mario and I graduated from UCCS in 2018 with a major in Psychology and minor in gerontology. Shortly after, I received my TEFL certification in Spain and taught for 2 years. Although I am accustomed to teaching students who are learning English as a second language, I can also help tutor students who need extra help in their English and grammar classes.

Learning and/or receiving extra help in a subject can intimidating, that is why I believe it is important to learn a students learning style to make the experience more comfortable and maybe even fun!

After a 120 hour intensive course at TEFL Iberia, I received my certification and afterwards taught at an English academy for two years. My students ranged from 9 to 60 years old in both group and private classes (in person and online).

Public speaking can be terrifying for some individuals. However, just like anything else in life, the more you do it the easier it becomes. Teaching made me more confident in my ability to engage an audience and keep their attention as the profession requires some level of comfort in public speaking.

I have been playing guitar for over two years and absolutely love it. Seeing my friend show his passion for it rubbed off on me and now I enjoy sharing it with others. I have taught a few beginners and take great pleasure in seeing them become better each lesson.

It is important for my students to feel like they are making progress in whatever topic they are receiving tutoring in. Because of this, I am always open to suggestions from students or parents on how they feel they could best learn. I always try to respond to messages as quickly as possible and am available most mornings and afternoons. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me!" less...
