This is the feedback that some of my students were kind enough to provide. Thanks so much everybody! It has been my pleasure having the opportunity to meet you all.
JOHANNES (FROM GERMANY) -INTERMEDIATE-
“I can highly recommend Jordán as a Spanish teacher - not once I've regretted choosing him when living in Mexico City. He is patient, knows the right expressions and emphasizes understanding why you use certain phrases in different situations. He is fun to have conversations with and quickly spots where my understanding of the language is unclear, never losing sight of the goals of the lesson.
I was especially impressed by his knowledge of language structure: It helped me recognize patterns and know what to focus on when learning at home and practicing (oh, those verbos irregulares...). I have made progress in every single lesson we've had.”
KATIE (FROM CANADA) -BASIC-
“I was a complete beginner when I first met with Jordán. I was convinced that I was helpless and felt like I was never going to pick up Spanish, but after working with Jordán for a few months I have come so far and am totally confident that with continued practice I will one day be fluent :)
Jordán is very patient, punctual, dependable and always explains everything in detail. After every lesson I walk away feeling like I've learned something new. Thank you Jordán for being such a great teacher!”
TYRONE (FROM USA) -INTERMEDIATE-
“After trying so many teachers, I finally found the right one. Jordán is extremely patient, with the right dose of fun and professionalism. I meet with him about twice a week and know that I am better than when I first arrived to Mexico City.
I really wanted to work on my conversational Spanish, as I have many Latin friends and travel to South America often. There were several gaps in my knowledge base, but Jordán fills those gaps, and I feel more confident each time. Also, as a teacher myself, I thoroughly believe in his methodology, and for once, I don’t feel self-conscious about making mistakes and speaking with other people. My lessons are personalized, engaging, and honestly, really fun.”
JOOST (FROM NETHERLANDS) -INTERMEDIATE-
“Jordán speaks Spanish very well J. Without kidding he is a very good and patient teacher. The lessons are very structured and there is room for questions that come up during the lessons. All in all very pleasant lessons. I would definitely recommend Jordán as a teacher.”
KATE (FROM USA) -INTERMEDIATE-
“Jordán is the best! Initially I met Jordán in Mexico City for lessons and have continued working with him via Skype in the last few months. When I began lessons, a friend and I were on an extended trip in Mexico City and decided to take classes 3 days a week. We both are at different places in Spanish but he kept us both learning with new material and by review.
I've continued private beginning/intermediate classes 2 days a week with the intention to become fluent, and the pace is decisive and challenging. He sets up the lessons in an organized manner which would work well for anyone looking for graduated learning that is professional, straight forward, and from an extremely resourceful teacher. Thanks Jordán!”
CARLA (FROM CANADA) -BASIC-
“Jordán is an excellent language teacher! He's the perfect combination of patient, serious & fun. I only knew a few words in Spanish when I arrived in Mexico City at the beginning of June, and immediately sought him out for help! Not even 2 months later, I feel comfortable having a simple conversation with strangers.
I enjoyed our classes so much that I've continued lessons with him from New York City via Skype. I highly recommend taking classes with Jordán regardless of the level of Spanish you already have, either in person or via Skype, wherever you are in the world!”
ANNA (FROM USA) -BASIC-
“Taking Skype Spanish classes with Jordán is a very convenient and affordable way to study Spanish. He explains everything very well and does a good job of incorporating review. I study Spanish because these days it is such an important language to know if you live in the US.
I currently live in Korea and don't have many chances to use Spanish, but taking classes is helping me pick up Spanish again, great to prepare me for returning to the US.”
NEELAM (FROM USA) -INTERMEDIATE-
“I asked Jordán to help me develop my Spanish conversational skills and I felt in a short time I was already able to notice an improvement. He not only corrected my mistakes, but also was able to explain why words or phrases were used a certain way and in what context. He is professional, reliable, flexible with scheduling, and can customize the class based on your specific Spanish goals.”
DAVE (FROM CANADA) -ADVANCED-
“I would recommend Jordán very highly as a Spanish conversation teacher. My weekly lessons with him took place throughout February/March 2016 and I was entirely satisfied.
He is a good conversationalist virtually on any topic, and he was very effective in helping me find the right word, or a better word, to express whatever it was I wanted to say in Spanish. He has keen ability to see the language from the point of view of the learner and to help the learner correct mistakes or use more appropriate expressions. He also has a good sense of when to let you talk and when to intervene. It was a pleasure discussing Mexico and the world in Spanish with him.”
KONSTANZE (FROM GERMANY) -BASIC-
“I came to Jordán with a low level of Spanish knowledge. The 6 lessons I had with him helped me to understand the language. Jordán is very structured and could give me a good insight in that short time. He always paid attention to my speech and we were constantly repeating the concepts which helped me in improving my conversational skills.
After that, it is easier for me to start conversations on small talk level. Through the knowledge of conjunction and tenses and how to shorten sentences I now can continue to improve my Spanish knowledge.”
SARA (FROM USA) -BASIC-
“Jordán and I have been working together for a couple of months and already he has been a lifesaver on the dreaded verb tenses.
He's very knowledgeable about grammar and able to explain it in a clear and concise manner. I enjoy our lessons because Jordán approaches them with the flexibility to make them applicable to my own life and interests. I would recommend him as a teacher if you are looking to develop an understanding of Spanish grammar or as a conversation partner in order to strengthen your speaking abilities.”
HARRY (FROM ENGLAND) -ADVANCED-
“Jordán is a great teacher: extremely patient, he would go out of his way to help you with your Spanish. I was already at quite an advanced level when I arrived in Mexico but he really helped me iron out the finer details and speak and write with more precision. I really recommend taking classes with Jordán regardless of the level of Spanish you already have.”
