* RESULTS:

I am not a tutor, I'm your ally. From a mom crying on camera looking at his kid reading in Spanish for first time after struggling at school, the student overwhelmed with grammar to the pupil that used to get F's and now gets B's or A's, I am confident I can help and believe me I'm inspired by getting my job well done and by the life changing outcomes that come with this.

*WHAT'S IN FOR YOU:

a) Personalized lesson plan when needed.
b) Schoolwork support and project counseling.
c) Test preparation.
d) General Spanish lessons for improving linguistic skills. (Writing, listening, reading, speaking).
e) Virtual classroom to keep students engaged and learning during the week with dynamic assignments.
f) Recall system for vocabulary.
g) Cultural study of the Spanish speaking countries.

Spanish 3

Hello I appericate Gustavo so much. Patience and understanding each student learns at a different pace. He makes tutoring Spanish fun for my child at the point he has become eager to become strong and fluent as much as he can. This is my 2nd child Gustavo has tutored for. We appreciate Gustavo, he really teaches not just tutor.

Knowledgeable and helpful

Gustavo helped me complete my Spanish homework effectively and it was a lot easier to do on my own after my class. He also helped me understand certain concepts.

Rahul, 9 lessons with Gustavo

My first session!

My first session was great! I had several “AH-HA” moments! I’m looking forward to continuing! He was very patient in helping me get everything set up so he can monitor my progress!

Tutor responded:

Hello Taylor, I am happy to hear this positive news. I hope you will be able to return to your regular classes soon.

Excellent tutor

So far, Gustavo has helped my son progress in Spanish immensely. Before the classes my son did not want anything to do with Spanish, but since starting class with Gustavo, I’ve noticed that my son has taken a lot more interest in learning the language! Gustavo always comes prepared with his lessons and takes his time to make sure my son understands what is being taught, I am looking forward to more lessons with Gustavo.

Hello Cynthia, I am very, very excited to hear these positive news. I will do all what it is on my hands to encourage him to learn the language and to assist him on this journey. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Knowledgable and prepared tutor

My 11 year old nephew who is a beginner in Spanish enjoyed his lesson with Gustavo. Gustavo had a detailed lesson plan and was patient despite some technical difficulties on our part. My nephew is excited to continue to improve his language abilities under Gustavo’s tutelage.
