Teaching Approach:

The ability to speak and communicate in the foreign language of choice is paramount. Grammatical structure, etc. may be emphasized only if requested. My approach changes for each student as their business, conversation or travel requirements differ. I emphasize the conversational approach, building the student's level of confidence to speak Spanish.

Excellent

Henry was excellent to work with. He drilled my husband and me on verbs which I was having difficulty with. Conversations were done in Spanish. We worked on my medical language skills as I work in the county hospital in Dallas. He was very patient and always prompt. I found the homework to be helpful and his manual effective. He recommended good resource books as well.

I wish we had more time for his tutoring, but we will hire him again soon.

Henry has been fantastic!

We have loved having Henry as a professor! We have a class of about 10 Dallas Cowboys employees and he has been able to customize our lessons to fit our different skill sets. We are planning to have Henry back for another semester. He is highly recommended in our book!

Great Teacher

Henry is an excellent teacher with a very unique method of teaching and a great sense of humor. He adapts to your knowledge level, speed and requirements for learning.

My partner and I wanted to get back into Spanish after both having been away for a number of years. We chose to start off at the beginner level again and we quickly accelerated to grammar and conversations.

Henry gave us the confidence to test ourselves on a trip to Puerto Rico and we did amazingly well.

We would not hesitate to recommend Henry and will very likely be going back to him for some more advanced help after we do some self study.

Thanks Henry!!!

A creative teacher with affective eucational approach.

I have been fortunate to be acquainted with a devoted teacher Henry for the past 3 months. He is always observant on my weak areas and works until I come to a complete understanding. He has an excellent approach to balancing all elements of language learning. Every lesson he will cover reading- pronunciation, dictation, vocabulary memorization,grammar, quiz, homework and spends 1/3 of time in conversation. He speaks beautifully and clearly, very easy to understand. I have lived in 5 different countries in my life. I find his teaching very unique and professional.I recommend him very highly.

Passionate, Professional & gives 110%

Henry is an amazing instructor for anyone willing to learn Spanish at any level. He is always early, thinks of creative ways to help you learn and goes above and beyong in trying to adjust to your type of learning and even researches specific subjects that you are interested in learning. Henry has done everything to help me from sending me recommendations on English/Spanish Electronic dictionaries to researching specific techinical vocabulary used only in the Journalism field. He has helped me improve in my reading, writing and speech. I am now more fluid when I speak and much more comfortable with my grammar when I write. If you are considering a Spanish teacher, he is the perfect choice. I have recommended him to my father who is also interested in learning Spanish. This class is not intimidating, if you put in the work you are guarunteed to see results. Not only that, but he teaches you about the Latin culture and even throws in a couple of jokes so you are more immerged in the language. I highly recommend Henry to anyone, even if it isn't already, Spanish will soon be your favorite subject to study!

Henry is a great help to all that want to learn or improve their spanish.

My time with Henry has been joyous. I am more confident when speaking than I was when I started 5 or 6 months ago. I definitely have been able to connect the missing pieces in some of my grammer and prepositional use when speaking and writing in spanish, and my vocabulary has grown significantly, which is quite helpful. I am glad to finally have meet someone I can connect with.
