I am a native of North Carolina, United States. I enjoy learning, and consider myself to be a life-long learner.
I graduated cum laude from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. I have more than 20 years of combined experience in teaching and tutoring Spanish. I have extensive training in education and I speak Spanish fluently.
I have taken graduate level courses in Reading, Writing, and Literacy and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I am very active in the community, and I am associated with several non-profit organizations. I enjoy sports, music, reading, and writing, and of course, teaching. I enjoy spending time with friends and family. My beautiful wife and I live in North Carolina with our two dogs, Reese and Ebony.
I have traveled quite extensively, visiting South America, Central America, and the Caribbean. My travels have opened the doors to many friendships, and have allowed me many opportunities to appreciate a variety of cultures from a very close perspective.
