Feedback For Placido (9)
Placido is an amazing teacher to both my 10 & 8 years old. Having lived in Spain for 7 years , my wish was to carry on with Spanish lessons to ensure the kids didnt lose a language that they both spoke so well . Placido makes the classes both fun and challenging using many different games and techniques as well as having an amazing personality . My kids really look forward to their lessons on a fortnightly basis . Highly recommend.

Tutors Response :
Many thanks Vivienne, I`m delighted to see your feedback, very kind and thoughtful. You`re a 5 star student too.
I am a mature ex teacher having spent a lifetime in education and I highly recommend Placido as a first class teacher who makes lessons stimulating and challenging. He has inspired me with my Spanish and is tailoring totally individual bespoke tuition that is about so much more than just the language. He embraces teaching through personal interests which I find increases my motivation to learn even further. I really cannot recommend him highly enough.
I decided to start Spanish lessons as I am a travelling sales rep, with Spain being a part of my territory. I contacted Placi who said it was no problem to come to my office weekly to carry out the lessons. Placi is SO flexible which is exactly what I need. He is professional and always has lessons prepared. He is very encouraging and makes me very relaxed, even after a stressful day at the office. An hour goes WAY too quickly! Thank you Placi for all your hard work and being so flexible (especially when my work makes it difficult for us to have a permanent day!). I would recommend Placi very highly indeed.
Tutors Response :
Thank you Alice for such a complementary feedback. It is great to feel you`re relaxed and improving lots week by week
Placido is an excellent teacher. He is very down to earth, a great laugh and generally fun to be around. He quickly finds out your interests and level, applying the taught material around these. I have only had a few lessons now, and have been learning far more than ever!
Placi is a great tutor. He is patient with our young children and plans each lesson. He caters for the children`s needs and us as the adults. He is always flexible with lesson times and dates. We are learning together as a family which is fun and we would definitely recommend him.
Tacito is a fantastic tutor. My son is very comfortable with him, and already his confidence in Spanish is growing. Can highly recommend both tutor hunt and Placeido
Pleasant, courteous & enthusiastic tutor.
My son is looking forwards to a very hardworking & enthusiastic approach to Spanish G.C.S.E. in the following months. Placido is well prepared with all resources.
Very knowledgeable and supportive, easy to approachable , reliable, trustworthy and with good sense of humour. He became part of our family. Very pleased to meet him. :)
