My name is Ricardo. I have been teaching Spanish for more than 30 years. I am certified to teach Spanish in NYC, CT and FL.

I am a native Spanish speaker. I have profound respect and love for the subject I teach. I always keep upgrading myself in order to become a better person and a better teacher.

Why am I a teacher? Because I believe education is the answer for a better life. Education always improves our way of life. It is an honor and a privilege to be an educator and to be part of any student's life. I know I can make a difference in the lives of my students. With more than thirty years of experience I have tried all teaching techniques and methodologies within my lessons. My practice makes education accessible to all students who might have different learning styles.

I am very creative and flexible. Lessons are tailored according to each student's specific needs. I can reach more students because I know what works and what doesn't work. Business Spanish lessons and conversational classes are available (classes will be conducted in Spanish).


P.S. Travel radius: 20 miles, round trip.

Very Responsive and Great Ricardo has been excellent. Even before he started his first class, he was in touch with me and my daughter to find out exactly what her difficulties were, what book and course she was on, so he was well prepared on arrival. He is very patient and has focused on conversations as that was my daughter's challenge. Overall excellent teacher! ...
