Efraín is a talented and devoted teacher. In my preparation for a research trip to Mexico City we were able to make a focused and practical plan to be prepared for the trip. I would highly recommend him!

Efrain is a wonderful teacher! Since starting with Efrain my Spanish has improved dramatically. My comprehension and speaking have both seen very sharp increases. He is very generous with his time, easy to get along with, and always makes sure you are engaged and enjoying your learning. I had some previous experience learning the language and studied a lot on my own, and he was great at working with me and coming up with plan together that we both felt would meet my needs and goals. I am 5 lessons deep and plan on continuing!

I needed help with learning spanish in order to support my employee population that i support and so i used Efrain's services and have been able to hold conversations just in two months of teaching. I will continue to use his services till i become fluent in Spanish. Highly recommend him.

I am very much a beginner in Spanish, aside from the little I remember from middle school Spanish classes. However, I have improved drastically in the short time since I started learning, due to Efrain's teaching style. Efrain has a fun approach combined with high expectations. He also made sure to tailor his lessons to topics and words that are most relevant to me. I look forward to continuing my lessons with Profesor Efrain :).
