Summer tutoring in Spanish can be fun?low-pressure, 
entertaining, and helpful.

If your middle or high school student is struggling with 
Spanish, I can help!  

I am an energetic, focused and playful tutor who loves my 
job. I have experience with all kinds of students, from 
those with ADD/ADHD and/or learning disabilities to those 
in AP classes headed for top universities. 

As a fluent, NON-native Spanish speaker with a B.A. and 
M.A. in English from Cal, I understand thoroughly the 
differences and similarities between Spanish and English 
vocabulary and grammar, and the problems English-speakers 
most frequently encounter when learning Spanish. 

I am booking summer sessions now. Call or email me for 
more information or check out my website at

instructor with 20 years of experience tutoring both Spanish and ESL.

design lessons to address precisely their needs. All lessons include 
spontaneous speaking & listening practice as well as grammar, 
reading, vocabulary, spelling rules and writing.

Homework will be given each and every time to ensure retention. It 
may consist of writing, reviewing a (continually growing) pile of 
flashcards, or recording themselves speaking on video and sending it 
to me. $5 Discount given for students who meet more than once a 
week. $30 /hour. Can give you references upon request. 

Sorry, I am not qualified to work with students younger than 13. Teens 
and adults only.

?Mucho gusto! Me llamo Benjam?n. I'm a bilingual teacher and professional 
translator. From higher grades and test prep to writing well and speaking fluently, 
my rigorous instruction will help your son or daughter succeed in Spanish.

Ten years ago, while studying Spanish at Cornell University, I was awarded 
Cornell's Prize for Excellence in Foreign Language Study for demonstrated mastery 
of Spanish.

After college, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala, where I taught 
Spanish to foreigners and served as a community interpreter.

After the Peace Corps, I was hired as a Spanish teacher at a New York City high 
school, where I was trained in differentiated instruction, which enabled me to 
tailor my teaching methods to a wide spectrum of students with varying needs and 

This past year, I produced a 17,000-word Spanish translation of a research report 
that was cited by the New York Times, National Public Radio, and other leading news

Portuguese Languages and Literature program. I have lived in

to being a native Spanish speaker, I have been trained to 
teach Spanish.  I have master?s and doctoral degrees in 
Spanish literature and linguistics (University of Florida
