Hi, I'm Chris

About Me

I love teaching. I love learning. And most of all, I love meeting people that are passionate. I sincerely believe everyone has a passion for something and for those that don't know what it is, I truly believe it's just a matter of time until you discover your passion.

To me, the best way to discover your passion is through people with common interests. The energy that I get when I meet someone with similar interests, like boxing, new business ventures or even quesadillas, it absolutely lights up my life. This is why I started Saber Blitz - being able to meet people in an inclusive and accessible manner through live online learning with credible and passionate Experts.

I had an amazing time with Chris and the rest of the class. As the instructor, he made sure that everyone in the class has the chance to practice his/her public speaking skills in a safe and judgement-free environment regardless of the speaker's skill level. He also provided his students with constructive feedback so we can take note of the points of improvement. Overall, Chris is an awesome instructor that is full of energy and enthusiasm to challenge and motivate you to become a better speaker.

Chris is awesome! He genuinely cares for your success and is very passionate about the things he talks about. He doesn't sit there and lecture you on how to improve and it's more of a discussion.

Chris is always encouraging students to talk more. The link between Chris and me is not only the relationship between a teacher and a student but also between friends.



Chris is an enthusiastic instructor. He always tries to give his best and always motivates students like me to speak up in class. Thank you for pointing out my weaknesses and for providing such a valuable session.

Cris Hoquis wan a great teacher/lecturer and I fully enjoyed his lecture. Explained everything in detail and it made it easier for me to understand. The fact that he is learning another language himself made was great too.

Chris is welcoming, knowledgeable, and encouraging. His passion for values and genuine desire to connect with people in real and tangible ways shines through. The activities he facilitated were practical and the discussions supportive; three hours flew by quickly with all the content he shared.

Thank you Chris for giving us your experience and teach us some great stuff about public speaking. In college we didn´t practice this often and It´s kinda a taboo thing jaja. I didn´t know about this webinars until Gaby Velazco send me the invitation. I´m waiting for the next one now ! I hope we can talk soon. Bye

It is a comforting environment to practice. No matter your goal is to improve English or practice public speaking, here is the place you wanna go. I had a few classes, and I can feel my English is improving. Highly recommended.

It seems hard to go outside and meet people during this time. However, by taking Saber Blitz class, I met many people here. Good opportunity to enlarge your network. We all had chance to speak up and make a presentation without any scripts or notes in class. This helps me build up my confidence and overcome my speaking anxiety. I also had chance to collaborate with people I never met before. Chris was amazing when giving useful feedback about how we can improve our skills. I love his encouragement. All people in class were there with the same purpose: to improve personal skills and to help. I can see my improvement after class, I have new friends who I can connect with. Thank you Chris and definitely I cannot wait to join the next class.

Chris talks from his heart and experience, which makes him authentic and gains trust from his students, and when you trust someone, you will feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and enriching the experience of this class. Chris is so active during his classes that time goes by so fast, so you will learn and enjoy it. The content is extensive, so perhaps it is necessary to have a more extended class or two sessions of this module. Excellent instructor.

This was one of the best online class sessions that I have participated in (if not the best), the 4 hours flew by! It was great learning about new tools that can be used to keep track of my progress and websites that offer services at a fraction of the cost, minimizing expenses. Thanks Chris this was truly helpful and I look forward to attending your future classes.
