About Clay

I am a native English speaker from the Southeastern United States. I can speak both standard non-accent English and southern US English and I enjoy working with students to reduce their accent in addition to perfecting their grammar. In addition to teaching ESL, I enjoy teaching Spanish. I began studying Spanish when I was in high school and later Majored in Spanish and Latin American Studies at the University of South Carolina. I have traveled to Mexico, Spain and Puerto Rico and I have had roommates from Spain and Mexico who have helped me learn specialized vocabulary from those regions. I am interested in offering tutoring, specialized lessons, or just providing conversation practice for those students who are looking to improve fluency in English or Spanish.
