Great first session. Justin asked a lot of questions to make sure he had an understanding about what I was expecting from our sessions. Very knowledgable and can quickly grasp where I was on the learning spectrum. Looking forward to more!

I teach science to elementary school children. I worked with Justin on becoming conversationally fluent in spanish so that I could communicate with my student's parents. Justin was incredibly patient and had a lot of good tips for how to practice spanish on my own. He is also a grammar stickler and taught me better spanish grammar than I ever learned in school. Thanks Justin!
