Curt is an experienced Spanish translator and tutor. He studied Spanish in college and gained years of practical experience as a U.S. Navy officer. His ports of call to Spain and France and post-Navy travel to Latin America sharpened his skills. He has also tutored elementary Spanish college students and done online translating work for several clients.

Curt's main strengths are Spanish-to-English (and vice versa), where he can skillfully convert those languages into their colloquial counterparts while retaining the original meaning and intent of the speaker.
