Feedback For Frank (24)
He is a good teacher
Frank is a great tutor, friendly and engaging, with a demeanor that puts you at ease right away.
My daughter (year 8) had a lesson with Frank (in Spanish). She really enjoyed his lesson and found him very encouraging. His explanations were clear and he includes some interesting culture information. The lesson was very well paced.
Good one off lesson for the boys in Spanish. thank you!
Frank is a great guy and natural teacher with a lot of experience. He very quickly understood my learning style and we built a strong rapport in the first lesson. On several occasions I had to change the date and time of our lessons and he was always very accomodating to fit in with me. A little bit more structure around planning lessons would be great but other than that I couldnt recommend Frank more!
Frank is an outstanding tutor. My son really enjoys his lessons and his confidence in Spanish at A Level has really improved. My son has an offer from Oxford University and is hoping for an A in Spanish. I have noticed how much his Spanish has improved since starting his lessons with Frank.
Frank is a very engaging tutor, my son is always happy to have his lesson with him. I would definitely recommend him!
Frank is an excellent tutor. He provided my son with just the right input for GCSE Spanish and also built his confidence with kindness and understanding. I would highly recommend him.
My lesson with Frank was very well structured and useful in targeting the areas of Spanish I am struggling with. Frank communicated about the lesson very clearly and asked how he could improve his lessons in the future.
I`m enjoying working with Frank - he balances out the practical stuff of talking with the technical stuff of grammar really well. I`m finding it`s helping me put things in order which years of adult education evening classes have covered but which haven`t really stuck.
I asked Frank to help my son with his Spanish GCSE oral. They connected quickly and the large part of the sessions was conducted fully in Spanish. My son really appreciated the practice and gained a lot of confidence through their sessions. He was also very happy to do them so clearly Frank was also able to make the sessions fun. Thank you!
Really nice guy, generous with his time, flexible schedule. Gives you advice on pronunciation, authentic Spanish phrases, and explains things well. Our classes were done in a very friendly atmosphere, though Frank always tried to push me. The only thing I`d like to see from Frank in the future is a tutoring plan, so that I can see what I will learn each week. Would highly recommend. Thank you Frank!
Frank is passionate, relatable and very knowledgable. Definitely recommend!

Frank is an excellent tutor. He quickly established a great rapport with our son and we have seen significant results from just a few weeks tuition. Frank works hard to make his lessons fun by providing constant feedback and encouragement. He provides a safe and warm environment in which our child feels confident and comfortable.

Very happy with Francisco, a great teacher... I am currently learning chess with him and then intend to go onto learning Spanish. Francisco has a direct and clear teaching manner which very much works for me, he is also a very warm and friendly character!
