Since 1996 I have provided professional Spanish language instruction for people who enjoy Hispanic culture and like to learn Spanish in Manhattan.
I am a Native Spanish Speaker, fluent in Spanish and English. Raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina with parents from Spain, I have traveled extensively throughout Spain and Latin America. I have both Spanish and American citizenship. I originally came to the United States awarded with a Fulbright Scholarship.
My education consists of a Master's Degree in Education from the Prilidiano Pueyrredon National University from Buenos Aires, Argentina, a Bachelors' Degree in Spanish Language from SUNY Albany, another Master's Degree in Spanish Education from Queens College, and New York State Permanent Teaching Certification in Spanish. I also have trained under the Rassias' Method at Fordham University, and am a Certified Translator from NYU.
I have more than 25 years of experience teaching Spanish. My experience includes teaching at NYU and many Spanish Language Schools. If you are interested, please look over my testimonials and education and experience as a Spanish language teacher and tutor in New York City and abroad.
I come from a family of teachers. My mother and my father were teachers. My wife was born in New York, and she is a Spanish teacher too, teaching since 1994. We have been living in New York City since 1996 and we are the parents of a beautiful girl who is completely bilingual.
"...I got more from his teachings than from any other foreign language class I have taken..."
"... I came to Adrián as a virtual beginner, and left being able to communicate freely in Spanish..."
"...He uses a good balance of grammar and vocabulary with interactive conversation and role play in real life situations. It's fun as well as learning. Adrian is very patient..."
"... I can sincerely say that he was the most organized, energetic, and motivating professor..."
"...Adrián is a terrific teacher. He's animated, focused, well organized, and very dynamic. He also has a terrific sense of humor and is very professional and thorough in his approach. Lessons are both intense and fun..."
"...I have studied previously at (another school), and I can honestly say that Adrián's lessons were far superior..."
... I always feel as if he is giving 100% towards making sure that I learn the language correctly, while at the same time enjoying it. As a result I can now speak, write and understand Spanish..."
"... It is important to find a professor like Adrián, who can give you the proper attention with a good level of enthusiasm. In no time, you will be speaking comfortably..."
"...one of the best educational experiences of my life..."
"..Taking your classes has been so rewarding and one of the most important things in my life and I appreciate all your help, encouragement and your laughter during our classes..."
"...I learned a great deal, had a great time and felt empowered by his instruction..."
"...I would highly recommend going to Adrian as he successfully creates an environment where any type of student can feel comfortable to make mistakes and ultimately become better Spanish speakers..."
