Santiago is so amazing. We confide a lot of things and it’s so fun. Today near the end of our 90 minutes that flew by, Santi spontaneously pulled up a document so we could chat about our 6-month goals and make a list for each of us. It’s so exciting I can continue to grow my Spanish with him while also enjoying mutual support for our habits and dreams. I may be a native English talker, but this Spanish tutor speaks my language! 🤗💖💖💖

I still remember the first day of my Spanish class with Santiago; I only knew a couple of words in Spanish such as Hola, Gracias, and 'Café con leche y croissan, por favor'. His passion toward teaching has walked me through the steps to practice speaking Spanish. His patience and quick wit make me feel comfortable even when I make some mistakes. Besides his affability and encouragement, I appreciate him being attentive in every single class with meticulous attention to my mistakes. For me, the best part of his class is that he does not give me a right answer immediately, but nudges me to guess the correct one so that I can feel like ‘I Accomplished Something Great!’ I want to express my sincere gratitude to you, Santiago and I am psyched for the next class! ¡Hasta pronto!

He pushes you hard but is always patient in correcting the mistakes you make. Having him has a teacher for the past months have allowed me to transition from a complete beginner to being able to converse to natives in daily life. He is one of the best Spanish teachers ever!

Semplicemente perfetto. In una lezione di 45 minuti ho imparato davvero tantissime cose ed è stato molto piacevole e scorrevole. Non vedo l’ora di farne altre😍
