Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: For reference, I offer the following language lessons: Spanish, Nahuatl, Russian, Czech, Slovak I have been featured in multiple publications such as The Washington Post and Upworthy for my language skillset. Language is my life and I would love the opportunity to work with you. Born in Washington DC, I grew up bilingual in English and Spanish while living in both the USA and in southern Mexico. I started learning other languages at the age of 10 and took serious interest in the Russian language throughout my teenage years, assisting my teacher with Russian instruction at both Gaithersburg and Watkins Mill high schools in Maryland. Since then I've been studying various other languages continuously for decades, including Native American languages. Aside from language, (though a language of its own), I began photography at a young age, specializing in timed exposure, landscape photography, and capturing band performances at concerts in DC. I have photographed weddings and done individual photo shoots and head shots for private profiles. I continue to use film in both 35mm and medium format, experimenting with infrared and cross-processing while exploring nature or traveling the country.

Had my first intro lesson with Ven, and we were speaking Spanish together in the first class! He did a basic assessment first to gauge where I was with Spanish, and then we started practicing. He let my questions and the conversation guide our practice, which felt more natural than "dónde está la biblioteca" I'm excited to keep practicing and hope to gain fluency this year!

Ven opens perspectives of language in a way that makes it personal and authentic. Learning a new language can be daunting, and I've always walked away from a lesson with Ven feeling like I had a better understanding. I love writing, and Ven inspired me to keep a small pocket notebook to jot down verbs, nouns, and phrases as they come up. It has become a resource for reference and solidifying new vocabulary.

With me being a native Spanish speaker, Ven has helped me with my English proficiency. He is a valuable asset to have if you're aiming to add a new language to your toolbox. He's generous, patient, and equally a friend as much as a teacher. I'm happy to have him in my life.

Vaughn is absolutely incredible with languages. He has a very firm understanding of grammar and syntax with explanations that will make a dictionary blush. He has amazing patience and a really great speaking voice with attention to accent and word annunciation. If you are looking to learn a language and have this man be an incredible help to achieving that goal then you are in the right place. I met Vaughn about 5 years ago and have always connected through language and learning over that period of time. I was able to, with his help, learn conversational Russian in 2 years. I am confident when I say NO ONE will be more knowledgeable and helpful than Vaughn on most languages as he has control of over 30.
