Andres is an excellent teacher. He is very structured and always takes time to explain grammar and expressions, including sharing how they are applied in real life. He is very patient and created a fun learning environment. We had a substitute teacher once and you could tell the difference in styles. I highly recommend taking classes with Andres.

Andres is an excellent teacher. He is personable and helpful. He explained grammatical concepts really well. He always gave examples and used repetition, as well. Andres always invited questions and seemed to sincerely care about each student's progress.

Andres was always very prepared for the topics we discussed. He asked great questions that kept the conversation going, and he was really good at helping us improve, using gentle reminders that didn't interrupt the flow. I especially appreciated it that he made sure that all students participated equally.
