My name is José Díaz, I am a Certified Tutor. I live in the Dominican Republic and I have 5 years of experience teaching people how to speak my language.
Me as a Teacher
I have been teaching people from all around the world like Canada, USA, among others. Therefore, I know how to manage different personalities, making people comfortable, like if they were in a resort.
My lessons & teaching style
Another thing about my methodology is that I don´t like to complicate things too much. The easier, the better. But that doesn´t mean I am soft, so be ready to learn.

Jose was very clear and organized in his approach. Even in the first lesson, he gave me some extremely helpful tips to improve my Spanish. I look forward to taking more lessons with him.

I like everything we are doing, we are moving along pretty fast. Jose is a great teacher. He is funny and easy to get along with. He has the right amount of strictness that keeps you on your learning track. 10/10

As an adult learner, working with José has been fantastic. He's patient, encouraging, understands how to teach, and keeps the lessons fun.
We'll typically start off with talking about recent life, how things are going, other topics of interest. We try to keep it to Spanish, but not strict about it--switching to add clarity where it makes sense for subtle things.
He has a whole host of exercises to go through to teach and learn methodically, but that typically takes up less of the time --less drilling, more discussion and elaboration.
For me, this works out to an excellent balance, and I am sure he can work out the right balance for you, too. Book him for a lesson--you won't regret it.

This professor did an outstanding job. He is very patient , kind and prepared. He made me feel comfortable and he is easy to talk to the professor didn’t make me feel uncomfortable when I pronounced something wrong he gave positive and encouraging constructive feedback. The first lesson was extremely organized and professional . The professor gave an introduction, a placement test, then we went over goals which was exciting for me because I believe with this strategic plan I will achieve my goals in no time. He also gave my material based on my learning style to review and practice until the next lesson . I am excited and anxious. I cannot wait until the next lesson. Thanks again, Jose.
