I have been taking Spanish lessons with Alejandro for almost two years and I am really enjoying it. Alejandro has a fantastic teaching method that mixes conversation with tailored grammar exercises. I have really seen my Spanish improve considerably since I began working with Alejandro. What is particularly great about Alejandro is that he really cares about his students. He works hard to create tailored programs and accommodates any change in availabilities. Alejandro has also a great personality and spending time with him is simply great. I really recommend Alejandro as a Spanish tutor!
I'm the quintessential student who has never had an easy time learning a second language, even as a kid. Alejandro is a master at his craft. He knows that learning a language isn't just translating words, but understanding the structure and building blocks of a language. He's meticulous, thoughtful and incredibly attuned to his students' learning styles. He's done immense work to develop a curriculum to achieve fluency and it shows. Look nowhere else. You'll be shocked at what you can achieve.
Alejandro is a great teacher. In just under 5 months, he was able to teach me more than Spanish basic grammar. He taught me to speak well enough to have business meetings and understand work emails. His teaching method is superb and has a good mix of grammar and conversation. He will let you practice the grammar you learn. Something I noticed when learning foreign languages in the past is that a professor may teach you grammar and still that grammar lesson is set unpracticed for a while, usually as long as until you have forgotten it. With Alejandro this will not be the case and so you will remember what you learn. Most importantly, Alejandro cares a lot and is able to accomodate a flexible schedule. Extremely recommended.
Taking Spanish lessons with Alejandro is an absolute pleasure. Before starting lessons with Alejandro, I felt very self-conscious speaking in Spanish--I was worried about my grammar, vocabulary, and accent. Alejandro is extremely patient and understanding, and I immediately felt comfortable making mistakes and stumbling my way through conversations. Alejandro's lessons strike a perfect balance between formal and practical, offering structure and organization, but without the feeling of being in a classroom. You can tailor the lessons to what you are looking for--whether that be practice with conversation, reading comprehension, vocabulary-building, or grammar exercises. I find the lessons to be varied, engaging, and very enjoyable--particularly in light of Alejandro's friendly and upbeat personality--and the hour passes quickly. Alejandro has an excellent memory and is great at circling back each lesson to things that I have struggled with in the past, building on prior lessons and ensuring continued progress. I appreciate that he takes the lessons and my development as a Spanish speaker seriously and comes prepared to work hard along with me. I would highly recommend Alejandro as a Spanish tutor!
