Jaime is an excellent teacher. He has come up with a range of activities for me to practice my Spanish during our sessions. I also appreciate that when he corrects my errors (both speaking and written) he also explains the reasoning behind it so that I hopefully won't make the same mistake in the future.
Jaime is one of the most underrated spanish teachers out there. He has a unique way of connecting with his students so that they have no barrier in front of them when learning. He’s patient, understanding and very encouraging regardless of the student’s level. Highly recommend!!
