Introduction: Growing up in a bilingual and multi-ethnic household in New York City has given me a bit of an edge in learning languages and has the jump-off point for both my passion for languages and my passion for learning about the cultures of others. Being a Honduran and Panamanian Afro-Latino, I spoke both english and Spanish at a very young age. Bilingualism has been the gift that keeps on giving as it allows me to hear and distinguish different sounds that my be unique to specific languages. While some see this as something that can't be fixed, I use my background to help my students develop a tool belt for becoming more familiar with different sounds. Independence is important to me and I do my best to teach metacognitively so that my students will eventually be able to use the tools I teach them, independent of me, to teach themselves new vocabulary and maybe even new languages. At Lawrence University I studied Psychology and Vocal performance and in my first year started my passion for the Italian language. Now I have been speaking Italian for 7 years and have visited Italy multiple times. I spent multiple summers teaching Italian to students from the ages of 7-18 at Concordia Language Villages which has helped my Italian go from textbook to colloquial and back. I love teaching and do my best to provide the scaffolding and direction to help you reach your language goals without sacrificing the enjoyment that is lacking in most language teaching.

Jamil is a wonderful tutor! I was using duolingo daily during the pandemic and decided I was ready to up my game with a live person. With Jamil I feel like I won the lottery. He brings a wealth of teaching ideas to the table that keeps it light & fun for me. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Jamil is tremendously good at blending language pedagogy and musical performance. Whether mentoring a single pupil or leading an entire summer camp in Italian folksong and dance, he is a brilliant, kind, and attentive teacher to children and adults alike.

I’m a native speaker of Italian and I remember that when I met Jamil I was very impressed by his proficiency. Not only he has a perfect knowledge of the Italian language, but also of its culture, even in its most popular and contemporary aspects. Moreover, Jamil is an extremely kind, motivated and enthusiastic person.

I’ve been working with Jamil on Spanish (and more recently, Italian) fluency for about 3 years now! In that time, I’ve made a lot of progress and have become much more comfortable in both languages. Jamil is an extraordinary teacher because he is compassionate, understanding, and really makes a point to listen to you and work with you—instead of just going off of some lesson plan or arbitrary script (cough cough at other tutors on this site...). Grazie, Jamil!!

One of the most creative individuals you’d have the pleasure of witnessing. Jamil commands the stage and you just can’t help but move your hips. Really made the music festival memorable for me
