Feedback For Carlos (3)
Amazing tutor! Well organised and enthusiastic. Has increased my daughter`s confidence in all areas of Spanish - speaking, listening and writing. Always has loads of resources and sets practice to be ready for the next session. Also gives written feedback on each session. Really happy!
Carlos was friendly and engaging, as well as easy to talk to. He helped me feel more confident in spoken Spanish. I would highly recommend him as a Spanish tutor.
An excellent tutor. Thorough, attentive and a real pleasure to work with. Thank you - I could not have asked for more.
