Hello,

My name is Daniel and I've been teaching Spanish, ESL, and Music for over 10 years.


I've been giving private and group lessons to students ranging from children to people in their 70's. It doesn't matter if you are a complete beginner or at an advanced level.

My students have always considered me to be a fun teacher, but also one that helps them achieve real results. With me, you will learn real skills.

Check out below some testimonials from former and current students of mine (Spanish students at the moment, but you can get a sense of me as a tutor).

Looking forward to hearing from you and to helping you achieve your goals.

See you soon!

Daniel


Student Testimonials

"Daniel is a fantastic Spanish teacher, I cannot recommend him highly enough. Our 12 year old son Alex started weekly lessons with Daniel 2 years ago as a complete beginner and he has made tremendous progress.

Alex's Spanish has improved so much in the last year and now he is able to chat with any native speaker and enjoy cartoons in Spanish.
He is getting A+ in Spanish at school.

Daniel has a great sense of humor, is lively and entertaining, and prepares his lessons thoroughly. The homework that he personally creates are fun and interesting. Our son looks forward to doing them each time.

I recommend anyone reading this testimonial that might be interested to give him a try!"

"I had been hired for a position in my school district in which I would need to understand and speak Spanish more frequently. My Spanish was pretty rusty (I'm probably at an intermediate/high intermediate level), and I needed to work on my fluency and confidence. Daniel created activities that met my needs, including: casual conversations, role-plays of the types of interactions I would be likely to have (even by telephone), discussions about short video or news clips, and grammar mini-lessons when necessary. What impressed me the most is that Daniel is an experienced and working language teacher (of both Spanish and English), not just someone who speaks Spanish and thinks he can teach it."

-Deidre C.

"I studied Spanish in school for years but after a trip to Guatemala I was disappointed at how poor my language skills were. When I booked a trip to Peru the next year I vowed to do better and enrolled in a Spanish class. Looking back I realize how lucky I was to be placed in Daniel's class. His classes were challenging but always fun. My experiences in Peru were made so much better having enrolled in his class. If you want to improve your conversational Spanish I can not recommend Daniel enough."

-Kevin C.

"Daniel served as my private instructor for only one week before my trip to Colombia. In that short time, I went from an extremely basic and fractured understanding of Spanish to being able to engage in conversation--mostly through listening--on a variety of issues with the many locals I came in contact with in Colombia. Daniel responded to my needs and gave me a high-value, very efficient series of lessons that put me in a much more confident position in speaking Spanish. Muchas gracias!"
