Extremely Knowledgeable and Enthusiastic!

Diego is a wealth of knowledge but also has teaching skills to go with it, so all of that knowledge is accessible! Awesome vibe. Highly recommend if you are looking for music and recording tutor.

Ernest , 15 lessons with Diego

Thankful

Diego is very knowledgeable. He’s patient with his students and understands that learning a new language is difficult so I don’t ever feel rushed or uneasy if I don’t catch on quickly. Diego encourages me to continue and makes you feel that success comes with practice, practice, practice. I don’t think I could have found a better teacher. Thank you Diego!!!!

¡Hola, Manuel! I’m so happy to know you feel that way!! Thank you so much for such a kind and thoughtful review, and for sharing how you feel about the process in general! Not only does it show your gratitude, it also makes me happy because it shows that you understand what learning a language entails! As I mentioned in our lessons, it’s a marathon, not a sprint 🙂 ¡Muchísimas gracias por tus comentarios, amigo! Keep up the great work!! You are on track to be fluent in two months, just like we planned. 🙂

Diego is great at recording vocals

Diego clearly understands how to record vocals with the right effects. Recording vocals can be difficult without prior training. Diego walked me through how to use a limit effect and the difference between gain and volume

An amazing and passionate tutor

I just had my first lesson with Diego, and I loved it! He is able to explain everything perfectly, and most of all, is very passionate about teaching. I know that I’ll be able to succeed in learning Music Production with him as my teacher.

Knowledgeable and patient

Diego is a very nice and friendly personality. I work with him once a week and I learn something new every day. He works with music production and he could teach anyone how to use it well and correctly.

Very passionate about teaching Spanish

I arranged this tutoring class for my recent UGA undergrad. He wants to learn Spanish to perform better in his job. He took his first class and very happy Diego. He will continue to have 3 classes a week for next 3 months. Hope, he will become proficient.

So incredibly helpful...

Diego was such a terrific tutor - so patient and enthusiastic and a joy to be around. He really took the time to find out what I needed help with and made sure I understood the social media platforms I was interested in using. I highly recommend him!
