Hola, I'm Hermès Báez. Before coming to the US I used to speak more French than English and I was a French language tutor. Now I'm starting tutoring in Spanish, which is my primary language, and I have created Ekholos for it. I have visited six Spanish speaking countries, including Spain, and that have enabled me to get to know different Spanish language styles. Also I become from a family of educators: my parents were both teachers and school principals for about 30 years. At home I communicate in English and Spanish, encouraging my son, 11 y. o., to become 100% fully bilingual, that is writing, reading, speaking and listening-understanding.
At Ekholos I'm the first Spanish tutor, and as the the demand grows I'll recruit passionate native instructors from Cuba, Argentina, Costa Rica, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Spain and other Hispanic cultures.
