I had Valinhas as my AP Spanish teacher, and he is a great teacher, if you are having a lower grade than C he makes you go to tutoring after school so you can catch up and not be behind since he wants everyone to pass, sometimes he gives a lot of work but he prepares you for the tests and AP tests to improve yourself.

Easy Class, just a lot of work in class and at home, also the really one thing you have to pass his class is participation (speaking spanish in class.)

He has a lot of attitude. If you don't know something, he won't help you but give you attitude until you understand it. Sometimes I feel like he tries to embarrass people. Something I like about this class is you learn a lot everyday, not one single minute is wasted.

Mr. Valinhas is a fantastic teacher. He gives a lot of work, but you actually learn in his class. I didn't like him at all at first, but towards the end of the year, he ended up being my favorite teacher. You just have to be patient and organized, and do your work. I hope I can have him next year for Spanish AP! :D

His class runs on this routine that never changes. Homework everyday, vocabulary review, homework review, and notes. Sometimes memory games and movies. Had him for spanish 3/4.

A teacher that really cares about his students and wants them to succeeds. He gives alot of opportunities to make up bad grades. He really does "teaches" and you learn from it. A spanish teacher you w
