About Javier D.
Hola, cómo estás? I am a certified native teacher. I was born in Madrid, Spain (Europe), and I live in California since 2014.
I love teaching, and have all my life.
I have a lot of experience; I know how to teach Spanish in the best way, mexican style and any latin style as well.
With effective lessons, with patience and with speaking slowly and clearly. You will learn grammar, the best proper pronunciation, the differences of our languages, our expressions, slang, etc ... with a profesional tutor who knows exactly what is doing due to his academic preparation and experience.
You will be able to speak with great accent, emphasys, positions of the mouth ... and more options of the language that it is advasible to be taught by natives teachers.
We will learn by enjoying and practicing, through one to one conversation, exercises, repetitions, movies, books, songs ...
By practicing with all these forms, you will feel success in a few classes.
Should be great as well to take lessons with 2 students or session groups. Works really good and it´s cheaper. The lessons are more fun because we can interact, so the student learn faster and better.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve excellence in your studies!
Nos vemos ! :) (See you guys)

Javier es excelente. Lo recomiendo a todos. In just two lessons, I have learned an extensive amount. Javier molds his lessons to his students level and needs.
Javier is a great teacher, he takes his time with you to make sure you know the work. He always gives homework and is also very nice, and working with him is very comfortable! He makes sure you’re pronouncing the words correctly, and also how to use words in each different sentence. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn Spanish!Show More
1 year learning with him. A little bit hard sometimes, but I love it
Speaks a bit too fast- not very punctual and very impatient. I asked to spend less time on pronunciation and more time or actually conversing and speaking out loud in conversation, but he gave me a bit of a hard time about this- I don't feel he has prepared anything for me specifically... he just goes off on tangents as we speak. I would like to focus more on conversation and grammar .Show More
Javier is great! I really need help speaking Spanish and Javier has lots of teaching tools to help with pronunciation and also for memorization. 8 lessons in and I'm hooked, I look forward to my classes and the fact that I feel like I'm improving and having fun while doing it.Show More
Great teacher! And when were doing the lesson it’s very enjoyable!
Javier is an excellent, caring teacher who sincerely cares about teaching Spanish to his students.

If you're looking for a great Spanish teacher who can teach grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary and make the whole experience enjoyable, Javier is the teacher for you. I started with little to no knowledge of Spanish and I feel that I have progressed a lot in the 7 months or so that I've been studying with him. I give Javier my thanks for being a wonderful and patient teacher and also give him my highest recommendation. I think any person of any age or ability would agree with me.Show More

First impression.....LATE!!!!! 45 min LATE!!!!!!!!!
My son had fun every time he took class with Javier!
Great. Attentive and encouraging. Substantive.
I am an adult beginner in Spanish and needed to learn the language quickly for some upcoming travel. Javier has done a wonderful job at making me feel comfortable with my pronunciation and I feel that I am progressing at a good pace. His lessons are educational and fun and his homework assignments are very worthwhile. I can recommend him for beginners all the way to advanced Spanish as it is his native language and his teaching methods are perfect for absorbing and remembering the idiosyncrasies as well as the general rules for the Spanish language in terms of grammar, structure and pronunciation. You will not find a more personable, effective or informed Spanish teacher.Show More
I am a beginner in Spanish and have taken lessons with Javier for several months now. He is a fantastic teacher and makes the lessons fun and informative--and he makes sure my pronunciation is correct. I am an adult and thoroughly enjoy his teaching style and energy. He would be good for any level student and I recommend him highly.Show More
Javier is great. He has the patience of a saint. Thank you Javier - I am glad I found you.

Javier tutored my daughter in improving her SAT scores! I couldn't wait for the scores to come in each time from the College Board once I realized that my daughter's scores kept increasing each time she took the tests!

I have a lot of experience, I am teaching 6-8 hours every day. My students include: elementary, middle school, high school, college students. Also, lawyers, healthcare professionals, flight attendants, business people, teachers (even Spanish teachers from USA). I am a physical education teacher and a tennis padel coach as well. These additional teaching skills give me a better understanding about students and how to educate them. Every student is different, and I can meet their individual needs.
