I offer personalized Spanish classes to adults of all ability levels.
A bit about me:
I was originally trained in language education in Paraguay and, later, in the United Kingdom where I was employed as a full time Spanish teacher at a top rated London grammar school.
Some of my former students are now studying Spanish at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
I also taught English at the largest language institute in Paraguay.
Over the past few years, I have gained extensive experience working at renowned institutions, such as the Foreign Service Institute, and as a private Spanish tutor here in Washington. My students are employees in both the public and private sectors, and/or graduate level university students.
My Teaching Philosophy:
All my classes are prepared on an individual basis according to the specific needs of each student.
I am also flexible on my schedule to meet your needs.

I look forward to helping you achieve your Spanish language goals!

Francisco is a wonderful teacher. His patience and persistence is never ending and he makes each lesson fun and interactive. Because he is a native speaker, he has great back stories for words and phrases that help you remember them. His tailor-made lesson plans and friendly demeanor make learning Spanish fun and easy! I highly recommend Francisco to anyone interested in learning or perfecting their Spanish!
I've really enjoyed my Spanish classes with Francisco. As an advanced student, I was looking for a tutor who really understood the ins and outs of Spanish grammar and structure - and would diligently correct my mistakes. He is a great teacher who always takes the time to prepare customized lessons. I highly recommend him - whether you're just fine tuning your Spanish or starting from scratch! -
Francisco is the best Spanish teacher. He met my requests immediately. He never stopped correcting my mistakes, even if I had made the same mistake for the 20th time. I recommend Francisco very much whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced student.
Francisco is a very dedicated, creative and experienced teacher. I took classes in order to learn Spanish for my work in an international organization and have to know Spanish. I can highly recommend Francisco's classes.

Francisco has helped me with my Spanish grammar and conversation for over a year! I feel very comfortable working with him and have made great progress in my Spanish language skills. He is always on time and makes a detailed lesson plan for each week. However, he is also flexible and caters to my schedule and needs when necessary. I highly recommend working with Francisco!
Francisco has significant training and experience in teaching, and it shows. He's very good at choosing exercises and directing conversations to help me learn vocabulary and grammar I need to learn. He's also good about challenging me with new subject matter and picking up the speed of our conversations over time. I really recommend him to anyone who wants to make progress with their Spanish.
Francisco is a fabulous Spanish teacher. As an advanced student, I can't say enough good things about him. From the get-go he was super attentive, and took the time to create individualized classes, integrating the advanced grammar and technical vocab needed for my job at an environmental NGO. Whether you're looking for conversation classes or are just starting off, Francisco is your guy!
