Introduction: Hi there! I’m Malcolm, the founder and coordinator of Real Talk Language Lessons. I love teaching and tutoring! I’ve taught and tutored Spanish, ESOL, and ACT for many years at various institutions and in various positions. I’ve reached hundreds of students and helped them to create new opportunities for themselves and to enrich their lives. Everyone, whether it’s myself, my students, my loved ones… every person on Earth has both an innate capacity and a profound need to learn and grow! I am always working with this in mind, and all of our tutors have a strong growth mindset. With language specifically, I see SO much unrealized potential in most students… there’s always something that has yet to “click.” Our goal at Real Talk Language Lessons is to help each student tap into their own individual potential. We use highly focused, effective, and efficient contemporary teaching methods to help students elevate their Spanish from the theoretical to the practical. As such, the students can finally use their Spanish in real-life language situations, such as traveling abroad or even living in a Spanish-speaking country. As each member of our tutoring roster can confirm from personal experience, successfully learning a foreign language is an incredibly empowering and rewarding endeavor! I’m extremely fortunate and blessed to have had both amazing personal experiences and formal education in language learning. These things have had such a profoundly positive impact on my life that I’ve chosen to dedicate my career to language education.

If you're looking for a Spanish tutor who is both knowledgeable and inspiring, then look no further than Malcolm! Malcolm has a true gift for teaching and has helped me grow immensely as a student. He not only provides excellent instruction but also motivates and encourages his students to reach their full potential. I always look forward to my lessons with Malcolm and highly recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their Spanish skills.

Thanks for your kind words, Sujay! I look forward to each of our sessions as well! I’m really excited to see where your listening and speaking skills in particular end up after 2-3 more months of consistent practice. You took great strides in the first semester, and you’ve got so much potential to level up even more in the second semester. At this rate, you’ll absolutely be ready to conquer the AP test in May. Keep up the good work!

Malcolm is an amazing teacher: the organization of the lessons is great, being considerate of the student's level and educational needs. The sessions are informative and challenging enough to help the students learn in a way that suits then best. He is also incredibly understanding, helpful, and easy to talk to :)

Mariia, It’s been an absolute joy watching your abilities grow over the last year! When we began, you and I were only having short conversations in the simple present tense about easy, everyday subject matter. Now, in every lesson you’re speaking at length and writing about contemporary world news and science-related topics, as well as reading advanced, full-length Spanish language novels. I’m very happy that you’ve made so much progress, and I look forward to continuing our work together! :)

I had Malcolm as an ACT tutor. Previously I had worked with someone who chose to satisfy his nicotine addiction by vaping during our lesson. Malcolm was the complete opposite.

Thanks, Mina. I’m glad I was able to help, and I enjoyed your respectful, positive attitude in our lessons :) If I may clarify to anyone reading, the other tutor to which Mina refers here is NOT associated with Real Talk Language Lessons. Neither myself nor anyone on our team engages in distracted or unprofessional behavior. We’re all fully committed to serving our students to the best of our ability, both in and out of sessions.

José es un muy buen maestro, sus clases incluyen buena organización, ejemplos claros y contenido cultural. Es muy flexible, organizado y su planeación como sus actividades son excelentes de acuerdo al nivel de cada estudiante. Un punto a destacar es que es un profesor nativo que promueve actividades orales para mejorar la fluidez en el idioma.
