Great First Lesson!

This was my first lesson. Werther assessed my level of knowledge in Spanish and gave me some very useful information on the language and culture. We went over some good material. I'm looking forward to future lessons!

Review for Werther B. Spanish Teacher.

My son and I have been taking Spanish lessons for several months with Werther Blanco because we will soon be living in Mexico. My son is also preparing a Spanish API in high school. Werther is always very responsive and adapts his lessons to our needs. For example, the Spanish exam approaching Werther leads my son to the oral test of the exam, with summary of the text, questions of comprehension and synthesis. His explanations in grammar and synthax are clear and precise. In addition, Werther is a very nice man with whom we can approach all topics of conversation. In short, 100% satisfaction!

Excellent introduction to Spanish lessons

Werther is very personable and approachable and does make you feel at ease when beginning lessons with him. I can tell he is very prepared for teaching as he has his own materials that he shares readily with the student, and works to tailor the lesson plan to the particular needs of the student. I look forward to working with him more.

Patient and Knowledgeable Tutor

Although I was very nervous going into my initial tutoring session with Werther (I tend to be very shy with new people), he quickly put me at ease with his kindness and sense of humor. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and tailors his curriculum to fit each student's individual needs.

Great Lesson!

Lessons with Werther have been going great. Last week I learned some masculine terms, singular as well as plural. This week I am looking forward to learning some feminine terms and expanding my vocabulary some more.

Shawna, 7 lessons with Werther

Highly recommended

I have been studying with Werther for 1-2 months. In that time, he has helped me improve my conversational skills. Werther is very easy to talk to, and naturally engages you in conversation. At times, we focus on the rules of the language, of which he is an expert (often providing illustrations and examples). Because Werther is a native spanish speaker, he can provide deep insights into the origin of words and phrases, as well as share cultural curiosities. Werther has also been very flexible in working with my busy schedule.

Five Star Teacher

I think Mr. Werther assessed my son's skill very accurately, and came up with a specific plan to improve his skills. I am looking forward to working with him to help my son succeed.

Great tutor!

Thanks to Werther for his fine instruction! He let me know I have the tendency to cut off the letter "l", which will definitely help me in future conversations!
