Hola, cómo estás? I am a certified native teacher. I love teaching, and have all my life. I was born in Madrid, Spain, and I now live in California. My native born language skills, immersed here in America, make me an excellent option for a tutor. In my opinion, it is highly recommended to get a native tutor for learning a foreign language.I am certified to teach through Sonorele Learning Awareness, in Spain.

I know how to teach you Spanish in the best way, with fun and effective classes, with patience, and with speaking slowly and clearly. You will learn proper pronunciation, our expressions, our culture and our customs, by enjoying and practicing with me, through one on one conversation, exercises, repetition, and homework.

In regards to how I teach, I incorporate the essential modalities of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. By practicing with all these forms, you will feel success in a few classes.
I am flexible with my hours, and I am available to travel to meet personally or to do a class online, either individually or in a small group. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve excellence in your studies!

Muchas gracias por tu atención.

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, I have taught healthcare professionals, flight attendants, business people, teachers (even some 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.

· Spanish · Online 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.
