« Perfect! Paúl is a great tutor. He kept the lessons interesting and easy to follow. I was able to ask questions without hesitation. He has a great system in place for scheduling/rescheduling sessions. I had requested tutoring on a specific chapter for a test. The lessons were planned according to the chapter in question. In the end not only did I understand the material but I also made an A on the test! »

Perfect! Paúl is a great tutor. He kept the lessons interesting and easy to follow. I was able to ask questions without hesitation. He has a great system in place for scheduling/rescheduling sessions. I had requested tutoring on a specific chapter for a test. The lessons were planned according to the chapter in question. In the end not only did I understand the material but I also made an A on the test!

Paul's response

Elizabeth is a college student taking some courses in Spanish syntax and grammar. We have been working for four weeks, focusing on Elizabeth's skills for analyzing sentences using syntax tree, and also studying advance aspects of Spanish grammar. She is a very patient girl with a strong willing for learning, always asking good questions and focused on building the best knowledge she can. A very satisfying experience. Hope to keep working with her.

Paul has been my spanish teacher for just about three months. He is one of the most knowledgable and patient and encouraging teachers I have ever had. He has a special ability to assess levels and tailor instruction that both builds on my strengths and helps me grow in areas where I am weak. He keeps learning fun no he normalizes struggle. He has taken extra steps to keep me dedicated to the slow steady learning process that is necessary when learning a language. After three months I have noticed a big improvement in my language skills.

Bridgette

I have known Paul for 2 years. He is an excellent teacher and professional. I've worked with him while he was a Spanish teacher at an International School. His love of literature and the Spanish language shined and the students learned a lot from him. Paul also tutored me in Spanish. I had prior knowledge of Spanish but he ensured that I spoke as much Spanish as possible when we were speaking one on one. This really made my Spanish much stronger and I was able to converse more easily when speaking with people.

I am sure that Paul would be an excellent Teacher for anyone who is interested. He is very knowledgeable and committed to excellence in all that he does. I have no hesitation to recommend him as a trustworthy teacher. I have recommended him to my friends in the past and I would recommend him again.

Andrea

He has a solid knwoledge about Spanish grammar, vocabulary and the different styles of Spanish language in the world. He showed me methods to mantain the coherence of a text in Spanish and give me useful techniques for comprehensive reading. He use different instructional techniques to teach and assest accordingly to the student level and personal way of learning.

Besides, is a very kind person, have a lot of patience and always pay attention to student's needs.
