Hello Students, I am Adán from México. I am a certified instructor with more than eight years of experience in the Spanish language education. Many years working with young people has led me to develop a dynamic, interactive and entertaining teaching system. I supplement lessons with references to the culture, history, and ways of life in the Spanish-speaking countries. I have extensive knowledge and studies in Grammar, Linguistics, and History of the Spanish language. I currently work for one of the most recognized language Schools in the Chicago area. I majored in the University of Guanajuato in Mexico, and I am a native speaker of the language.

Note: My available times change frequently, so it would be best to reach out to you via the Ask-A-Question tool before paying for a package to discuss open time slots. Thank you in advance.

I have taken 10 lessons from Adan and have been extremely pleased with my progress. I have used Rosetta Stone and Duolingo in the past but my progress and understanding has been so much better working with Adan. He helps me understand difference between what is right vs. wrong and well as what is acceptable vs. customary. This is one of key elements I was hoping to get from an instructor that I couldn’t get from the learning apps. I would definitely recommend Adan.

Adan seemed to know just where we needed to start based on my lack of formal Spanish education. He also knew to stretch me just enough to make it challenging while building my confidence. I like that he forces the repetition and recall - forcing my brain to put the right words together.

Adan is on time and friendly. I have 4 lessons with him so far, I enjoy them, and think they are effective. His vocabulary Quizlet flashcards are helpful. Hopefully I'll reach my goal soon!

Adan taught me more in the first lesson than I would have thought. He had me do a lot of practice and repetition and I was able to retain a lot. I had a different instructor for my first lesson and the differences were remarkable. I strongly recommend Adan for lessons if you are considering your options.

Adan is a great teacher! He is patient yet works with you to learn Spanish quickly. He has a mastery of the rules of the Spanish language that he can effectively communicate to his students. It will be worth your time to learn Spanish from Adan!

I started taking lessons about a month ago and so far it has been a very positive experience. My Spanish is at the intermediate and conversational level and I reached out to Adan to help me take my skills to a higher level. The teaching materials are very effective and Adan is very knowledgeable and supportive and is correcting my grammatical errors, which is exactly what I need. I signed up for 4 months' worth of lessons to start and will probably continue once a week for at least six months. I highly recommend Adan.

Very helpful and a good teacher! I have been studying at home and lack the practice to start speaking. The first lesson was a perfect mix of topics that I knew and Adan was able to push me in areas where I was weak in understanding. Looking forward to future lessons!

I really appreciate the diversity of exercises that Adan gives me. Spanish grammar can be so complicated, but I think Adan does an excellent job with breaking the rules down and guiding me through to understand the difference between verb tenses. I learn so much with each lesson!

Adan is a great instructor! He's very patient and you always feel comfortable with him. I've had classes elsewhere where I felt intimidated and like an idiot for not knowing things for my level. With Adan, it's very easy to talk to him and you look forward to his next class!

Patient, focused on the lesson, knows what he is teaching, and his ability to explain things in English is enabling me to fully understand the language. If you want to chit chat or have small talk, Adan is not your guy. If you want to work and learn Spanish, then he is your guy.

I've taken classes with Adan for over two years now--since the beginner level--and I couldn't be more pleased.

Adan is an excellent and conscientious teacher who genuinely cares about working with students to find the best approach for making progress. He has a gift for explaining things clearly, both the grammar and the idiomatic details that are important for developing conversation and getting a real feel for the language. The material is very well chosen, fun and productive; class is something I look forward to every week.

Learning a new language is a challenge and working with a good teacher makes a huge difference. Adan is a great choice!

I have been working with Adan for over 2 years and he is an amazing teacher!! He has taught me Spanish at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. He has helped me to learn the vocabulary, grammar and content that I need for my job. Adan draws upon a variety of engaging resources (e.g., Ted Talks, television shows, news articles) to expand my knowledge of Spanish and the culture of Spanish-speaking countries. Adan's classes are interesting and challenging and he makes me feel successful and motivated to learn more. I highly recommend him!

Adan has been my teacher for the past year, and I only have great things to say. He is warm, patient, curious, present, and clearly loves to teach. Adan has a thorough understanding of English, so he is well aware of the difficulties English speakers face when learning Spanish. I find the one-to-one, structured, progressive grammar lessons work so well for me. As a beginner who doesn't speak any other languages, making the decision to learn Spanish was very intimidating for me, but now I look forward to my lessons...always!

Adan is always prepared for classes with articles to read, current events to discuss, recommendations on good websites and news sources. He mixes up the class with both reading and discussion. He is very patient! I think my Spanish has improved since I've been studying with Adan. Highly recommend him.

I have had a number of tutors and even went to Mexico for 2 weeks to do an immersion and by far I would recommend Adan and his format to anyone. 1st he is patient and is able to explain not only the language and how it is used but more importantly for me, the structure of the language...If you know the structure and how the pieces fit together...the rest is just vocabulary and the various verb tenses. Adan's building block approach works..As everyone does, I stumble with vocabulary and verb tenses, but as a result of working with Adan I can normally understand and catch my error and figure out how to correct it. I spend 2 hours a week with Adan and thus far have spent over 80 hours him. I am committed to learning Spanish and with Adan's tutoring I know I'll get there.

Adan is a great teacher! He made adjustments as needed, spending the appropriate amount of time both giving instruction and allowing practice. I liked his approach, in using real-world videos and examples to be translated real time. It was great practice for learning more conversational Spanish, while still learning the basics of proper grammar.
