Patient and Caring teacher

I had a spanish final that I had to study for and I contacted Ricardo 3 days before the final. We tutored 3 days in a row and thanks to his help I got an A on the final and an A in the class. He is a very patient and caring teacher who adjusts around his students. Which is something that I find great in a teacher. Thanks for all the help Ricardo!!!

Knowledgable, Encouraging

Ricardo is a great help, very positive and encouraging to our son who is struggling with his Spanish 1 class. He is patient and caring - I highly recommend Ricardo to help any student who lacks confidence and needs to be encouraged and taught.

Helpful and thorough!

My daughter met with Senor Ricardo to get help on her Spanish 2 class. After just one session, she came back with more confidence through better understanding of the subject matter. She found Senor Ricardo to be a very patient listener who offers detailed explanations and shows that he cares whether the student understands the material discussed. We are very pleased with the lesson and plan to seek his assistance in the near future. Gracias, Senor Ricardo!

Patient and Knowledgeable

Ricardo was patient and worked hard to assess where my daughter needed help. He also identified outside resources that she can use to improve her Spanish and encouraged her.

Ricardo is amazing!

I have been studying with Ricardo for a couple of months now and am amazed at what I have learned so far. He is incredibly patient and knowledgeable, and also finds creative ways to teach the language. Time always flies whenever I study with him, and before I know it our two hour session has passed. I am so happy I found him and highly recommend Ricardo to anyone with a desire to learn the Spanish language.

Great teacher

He was very patient and was really good at explaining all the tenses in Spanish in terms of English. He provides a lot of handouts and worksheets for his students to reference to when they are doing there homework on their own. He also shares a lot of power points on difficult concepts with you. He really knows what he's doing and is very flexible with time. Another important concept he teaches is linguistics which is rarely thought in many Spanish classes. My son claimed that once he learned the linguistics in Spanish he was able to have a much easier time in class and Sr. Ricardo does a very good job teaching the concept of linguistics. If you are ever looking for a Spanish tutor, this is your guy. Overall, he was very intelligent and diligent and if you ever need a Spanish tutor, this is your guy.

Very knowledgeable and encouraging and fun

Ricardo explained details to me about pronunciation and the structure of Spanish that help me to help myself with other words not just the ones we cover in the lessons. Best Spanish lesson I ever had!

Jaki, 4 lessons with Ricardo

Experienced and flexible tutor.

Our first lesson was thorough and also upbeat. My son was reluctant to meet someone new and Ricardo won him over.

Kathy, 9 lessons with Ricardo

Knowledgeable, patient, and prepared tutor

Ricardo is always prepared with flash cards and/or worksheets that specifically meet my Spanish learning needs. I am working on becoming fluent and he is flexible during lessons as he sees where my speaking errors are. I feel I am able to learn faster with Ricardo and get more than my money's worth. I enjoy the lessons and am able to put into practice what I've learned. Even though his listed area was not close to me, he was able to tutor near me because he already had other students in my area :)

Excellent, dedicated, responsive, effective Spanish tutor

Ricardo responded quickly to our urgent request for high school Spanish 1 help. He reviewed class work and assignments in advance of meeting and came prepared, ready to help immediately. Ricardo not only is very responsive but also thoughtful and caring. Ricardo is a native Spanish speaker who knows how to motivate and encourage students. We could not have been more pleased or impressed with Ricardo. In short, Ricardo is excellent.
