About this pro

I speak fluent Spanish and English.  I spent a year abroad in Spain during my junior year in college.  Before that, I studied in both high school and college studying advanced Spanish.  I am able to converse with any dialect in Spanish, no matter where the person comes from.  

I want to help people learn Spanish and be able to converse with one another effectively & confidently.  I enjoy helping learn Spanish, and be able to get comfortable speaking at Level I (travelling purposes), and Level II (social situations); and lastly, Level III (job opportunities).

    I was very impressed with Sean's knowledge of Spanish, and his ability to adapt to my learning style. He was never impatient, and was also very flexible around my schedule. I was very satisfied.
