I was born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, and I've been tutoring online for 7 years, working 1-to-1 with over 300 students and teaching over 6,000 lessons.
When working with beginners, I saw a few challenges:
After experiencing first-hand how much providing them with a structured and rigorous approach helped their progress, confidence and motivation, I set out the mission to develop my own online learning program to help you build a robust foundation of the language.
I strongly believe that a good start is half the battle.

Hello, my name is Alejandro. I was born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, and I am 30 years old.
I have also lived in Madrid and in Cáceres, Extremadura, also in Spain. I have been teaching Spanish to foreigners for six years now.
I really like technology and I am also a basketball fan.
It's a pleasure to meet you. And see you in class.
See our Terms & conditions for more details.
After finding a slot in our booking system, you will join the class in Google Meet (a free video conferencing software, no installation required). During the lesson, we'll first get to know each other, I will dive into your specific needs to better understand how to help you, and together we will discuss an action plan on how to best move forward.
If you already have some experience with Spanish, I'll do a rough assessment of your level to determine what's the best starting point in our program for beginners.
I’m from Spain and therefore I speak and teach European Spanish, also referred to as Castilian Spanish. Being from Mallorca, I speak the standard Spanish you can hear in most media.
Also, the cultural insights of the program will focus on Spain and its people.
No, everything is included. You'll have access to a learning platform with the lessons, homework and much more. Just bring your enthusiasm and joy for learning!
Yes! I focus on this age group for three reasons:
1. Mindset: Your life experience has given you the wisdom that hard things, like learning a new language, require commitment and effort. You’re not naive.
In addition, you appreciate a sequential, structured program instead of the more casual and gamified approach preferred by younger learners.
2. Commitment: To make progress it’s essential that you work on your Spanish outside our lessons, that’s why I assign a variety of exercises to reinforce what you’ve learned, as well as books, podcast and videos to immerse in Spanish.
As a mature learner, you might be retired or in a later stage of your professional life and therefore have the time (and commitment!) to practice your Spanish.
3. Personal chemistry: Reflecting upon my experience working 1-on-1 with over 300 students, I’m the best version of myself when working with people over 50. Your enthusiasm and love for learning is infectious!
Absolutely! We’ll follow a program that starts from scratch. It’s perfect for you if you’re new to Spanish. And if you already know the basics, we can start a couple of units ahead.
If you just know some basics, then we can start the beginner’s program a couple of units ahead. In the trial lesson, I’ll assess your level to determine where best to start. However, if you’re at an intermediate or advanced level, my lessons are not the right fit.
Each lesson is one hour-long, or if I have back-to-back sessions, 55 minutes.
My working hours are from 12:00 to 20:00 Spain time (6 AM to 2 PM EST), from Monday to Sunday. In our booking page, you’ll see my availability and open slots in your time zone.
Yes, I like to work only with students I can truly help with their goals. In my experience, this cadence of lessons is what leads to the best results. If you can't commit to that, you can check our self-paced online course for beginners.
I ask students to schedule in advance their lessons for the 6-week period. However, the times and days don’t have to be the same week to week. And if something comes up, you can reschedule a lesson with 24-hours in advance.
We can discuss the scheduling details in our first lesson.
You just need a stable internet connection, a computer with a microphone and a webcam, and a browser to use Google Meet.
Yes! Prices are in EUR but you can pay in any currency.
Within a maximum of 24 hours (usually within a few hours), I’ll sent you a coupon code with 12 lesson credits that you can redeem in our booking page.
I only provide the option of the 12 lesson package for the 6-week Dive, as this commitment lends the best results. And there's no risk, if you're not satisfied after you first lesson, I'll refund you the full amount, including the session we did!
Yes! There's no risk in investing in your Spanish with me.
If after your first lesson of the 6-week dive you're not satisfied, I'll refund you not only the remaining lessons, but also the session we did!
But based on my experience with hundreds of students, I'm sure that won't be the case!
