Hola! My name is Alejandro and I am a private Spanish teacher offering comprehensive Spanish lessons to students of all ages in the NYC area.
A little about me: I was born and raised in Colombia with Spanish being my first language. I've been coming to the US since I was 2 years old and have been speaking English just as long. I'm a patient teacher with 11 years of experience tutoring clients of all ages, and love spending time with my students to ensure their language comprehension and speech confidence. I am also well versed in different forms of regional Spanish, so whether you'd like to concentrate on Venezuelan Spanish, Argentinian Spanish, Mexican Spanish, broad Castellano or any other form of dialect, I'll design a personal itinerary tailored to that. Learning a language is much easier than you think with the right teacher, dedication and persistence!
Competitive Rates: I offer Spanish lessons at very competitive rates and can accommodate any skill level. Whether you are just learning Spanish for the first time or want to brush up on your skills for your next trip to Spain or South America, be sure that the lessons will match your needs.

*What do you enjoy about the work you do?*
The chance to share how versatile and intricate Spanish can be in a comprehensible and fun environment. I always build a foundation of trust and friendship with my students, and it is one of the most rewarding experiences to work on something relatable to their personal lives, then see them take risks such as a comedic and freespirited approach during the latter lessons. To witness the depth of students' capacities to communicate and share is something deeply rewarding and priceless.
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!
