Borja is very patient and informative even as I struggle with basic concepts. He provides lots of examples and way so to think of and visualize information. This is extremely helpful to me as someone relatively new to spanish.Feb 1, 2018Verified

Borja is a great tutor for beginners, very patient and knowledgeable.Oct 17, 2017Verified
After my first lesson with Borja I'm even more excited about learning Spanish! On a professional level I like his varied approach to learning and consideration of learning styles, combining conversation (from day 1!) with visuals and sign language, and memorization with interactive worksheets and activities, always being sure to incorporate my life and the things he learns are important to me. On a personal level he's warm and flexible, and likes to laugh and be silly, a necessity in my experience to power through the constant and sometimes demoralizing micro failures of learning a language.Sep 20, 2017Verified
Borja was an excellent tutor! He's very thorough with his explanations of the material. He was also very patient when I had questions. We were speaking and working on sentence structure in the very first lesson! I'd highly recommend Borja for tutoring services.Jun 26, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer promotions to regular students. Also if you refer me to another student, both will receive a discount once he/she starts receiving lessons.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always offer a trial lesson to allow the student to know my methodology. It is also an opportunity for us to get to know each other, and understand better his/her goals and motivations. After that lesson I evaluate the current level of the student and create a program tailored to his/her needs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated in journalism and studied a master’s degree in International Cooperation with the intention of launching myself to know the world. After receiving my ELE certification as a Spanish teacher, I kept improving my training to offer the best possible experience.
