Applicable, useful and fun Spanish lessons.
Israel taught me work-specific Spanish which on our first meeting involved cuts, burns, trips to the ER, severed digits (cooking with teenagers)...and he stepped right up and made it happen. The personalized touch, his flexibility and professionalism are rare to find anywhere. He delivers grammar in a format that keeps you from quitting and helps meet your specific needs. I would recommend Spanish Gym to absolutely anyone who wants to learn useful, applicable Spanish.

Definitely worth it
I went through years of frustrating group classes in New York before deciding to contact Israel based on a referral. It was worth every penny to have someone focus on my personal needs and weaknesses and provide me with an abundance of practical resources I could use outside of class time to continue learning and practicing. Israel was always easy to talk to during our lessons, and I appreciate his flexibility and skill as a teacher, especially his knowledge of the special terms I needed for my job.

Also, group trips! I am so happy I joined one of the trips Israel organized in Oaxaca, Mexico. He carefully planned an affordable, interesting, fun, and educational trip that I will always remember. The best way to practice a language : )

Spanish Gym is the best resource I have found on my language journey.

A Gifted Teacher
I have had many Spanish teachers over the years and of them all, Israel is the best. He has a talent for helping a student define and achieve their goals. He is creative in his style, finding the best way to engage a students interest. We have used textbooks, language drills, conversation and even watching, studying and translating Mexican horror movies from the 1950s (my request). Israel makes learning Spanish easy and fun. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to learn or improve their Spanish.

Excelente!
Israel has a ton of teaching experience and it shows. If you want the best value for your dollar, you can't go wrong with SpanishGym. I've taken Spanish classes in high school, classes at a Brooklyn language learning center and tried to learn on my own. None of my attempts paid off as much as my lessons with Israel. I highly recommend.

I'm a fan of SpanishGym.com
Israel Lopez is a terrific teacher. He understands where you are with your Spanish and knows how to help you move ahead. He genuinely likes to teach, and he has a strong background of education and training to back it up. Israel's classes, group or individual, are interesting, friendly, and fun. And...
Israel's trips to Oaxaca and La Habana are true Spanish/food/culture immersion. ¬°Inolvidable!

I highly recommend Israel as a Spanish tutor
Israel has been my Spanish language tutor for many years, and he has helped me achieve a highly level of proficiency in the language, which I use professionally. I think that he is really wonderful at this work, and I have recommended him to three different family members, all of whom have told me how much he helped them. He is very knowledgeable, extremely personable, and great to speak with. I think he is an absolutely excellent tutor, and I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone interested in getting help with their Spanish.

I've improved immensely
Israel was referred to me by another student. He has helped me understand and speak Spanish better in a short period of time. Israel is very patient and knowledgeable. Our one-on-one sessions have forced me to speak in complete sentences. In May, I attended his Spanish immersion trip in Cuba! It was very educational and fun! Israel's itinerary included the best museums, clubs, and restaurants.

Customized Spanish Lessons To Your Level!
I found Israel on Craigslist because I was looking for a teacher who can help me learn Spanish vocabulary, specifically technology terms. I was doing customer service for a tech company and needed help speaking professionally in Spanish. I met with Israel for a few weeks and not only did he assess my Spanish and pick up from my level (broken Spanish), he created a plan for conversations and assignments in person and at home to help me get better. I got a promotion later that year!! Israel gets straight to the point and he's very personable as well. I ALSO went on an excursion to Cuba with SpanishGym and meeting other students that he teaches allowed me to make friends and practice my Spanish more. His itinerary for the trip helped me embrace the language and culture in a way I couldn't have without him. P.S. Israel will help you also understand many different types of Spanish spoken in different countries and islands as well as their cultures. He's a great resource!!
