I've been studying Spanish with Felipe Garces for several years now, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it! His classes are small, cordial and friendly. Felipe supportive style of teaching makes everyone feel comfortable and engaged. What a change from studying foreign language in school! I highly recommend it!.Don Nicholls
Felipe Garces is a talented teacher, bringing the gifts of his humor, patience, and diligence to the classroom every week. In Felipe's class, it's not only about instruction on proper grammar and pronunciation. I am also inspired by his devotion to learning, his passion for the Spanish language and culture, and his intellectual curiosity..Mira Schwirtz
I don't think I can say enough good things about Felipe Garces as a teacher. His class is organized and challenging, yet tailored to each students level. We carry on conversations in class, we read, get homework and have a lot of fun learning. It's a high point of my week and I wouldn't miss it..Victoria Pflugradt

Saturday advanced/conversation class
Class meets from 9am to 11am every Saturday. The class is reading "Día domingo", a classic short story by Mario Vargas Llosa. We previously read "Travesuras de la niña mala" by Nobel prize-winning author Mario Vargas Llosa, one of the 100 notable books of 2007 according to the New York Times and we also read an abridged version of "El ruido de las cosas al caer", one of the 100 notable books of 2013 according to The New York Times and the 80th best book of this decade according to The Oyster Review. The adaptation was written by Felipe Garces, the teacher in this class, who has a B.A. in Spanish with Honors from Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana in Medellin, Colombia. Advanced grammar and vocabulary is also taught as students read the book in this conversation class.
