Testimonials from my students
As a business owner with a family, Álvaro can work very well with my busy schedule and be flexible. Lessons are focussed exactly where my gaps are, and we balance the classes well between conversational Spanish, grammar exercises and creative variations to keep it fresh. Álvaro is attentive, knowledgeable and has seemingly monk-like patience. I see the value in one on one sessions with Álvaro and highly recommend him.
As an adult student, Alvaro has made lessons fun and does a great transition to from doing the lesson in English/Spanish to Spanish that allows for a good experience while maximizing learning.

بفضل ألفارو ، فقدت خوفي من اللغة الإسبانیة. إنھا لیست مجرد مسألة فھم ما یقول لآخرون ، القراءة أو الكتابة ، تعلم اللغة ھو فوق كل شيء القدرة على التحدث بھا.
مع ألفارو ، أجرؤ على التحدث أكثر من ذي قبل وأشعر بالأمان. ألفارو لطیف ، وأسلوبھ ھادئ ولدیھ الكثیر من الصبر. شكرا!
I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson with Alvaro. He made me feel very comfortable throughout the lesson and I found myself trying to speak more in Spanish than ever before. That is fantastic as I'm so hesitant with my limited knowledge. He gently guided me through my mistakes and I feel that I learned more in that 1 hour than I have in months and months of trying to learn. I'm looking forward to continuing with Alvaro.

Álvaro is a great teacher, but above all, he is a good person.
I have been doing classes with Álvaro for a year and, more or less, we do a class everyday from Monday to Friday.
Álvaro is very friendly, he has a lot of patience and, the most important thing for me, is he is flexible.
I have really improved my Spanish and especially my conversation skills. It was the most important thing for me that I wanted to improve and Álvaro has been flexible to allow that to happen.
At the moment, I have a lot of confidence to speak Spanish and now, with Álvaro's classes, I am going to take the DELE exam in February to demonstrate my level and obtain a Spanish certification.
Thank you very much Álvaro!
Álvaro je dobrý učitel, věnuje se žákovi i mimo hodinu, připravuje se a kontroluje úkoly a e-maily. Je trpělivý a podporuje mě, abych se vyjádřila, i když se mi někdy nechce - to hodně pomáhá! Nechá mě často mluvit a srozumitelně mi vysvětluje, kde jsem udělala chybu. Během lekcí na začátku trochu konverzujeme a poté se věnujeme nějakému tématu, buď gramatice, nebo se třeba podíváme na nějaké video. Jsem s ním moc spokojená!

Álvaro has been a huge help in the past year in improving my written and spoken Spanish and I would highly recommend him as a Spanish teacher. His classes are always interesting and have plenty of variety. Based around conversation, we've also covered lots of grammar, aural exercises and he structures optional homework around the areas I need to improve on most. Apart from anything else, Álvaro is a lovely guy and very interesting to chat to!
I have been studying Spanish with Álvaro for over eight months and I am really enjoying our classes. Álvaro is a great teacher; very patient and really knows his grammar. I am at an intermediate/advanced level and Álvaro has helped me to understand grammar topics I have struggled with previously. He’s also a great conversationalist, so we never run out of topics or things to talk to each other about. I would recommend Álvaro to anyone looking for a Spanish teacher.
