Hello Spanish learner! I'm Mr. Cruz., a native Spanish speaker with a bachelor's degree in Spanish Literature and Linguistics. My dual major is Grammar and Communication. Actually, I'm working on my Master degree focused on the next level: my PhD in Spanish.

How long enjoying my job as a Spanish teacher? Two decades from Elementary to College level as well as tutoring students privately. Teaching and tutoring is a pleasant and memorable experience for me at all time when I see my students' success in learning Spanish as a second language.

If you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced student there is no problem. I can improve your four fundamental skills: speaking, writing, reading, and listening by providing exercises and assignments in order to introduce or reinforce the complex Spanish grammar.

I had the privilege of working for the College of the Desert Language Lab in Palm Desert, CA where I shared and received a wide variety of great experiences from the students and staff. Letters of Recommendation from this and other employers are available -via email- upon request.

On the other hand, I'm a writer/journalist for the mass media: newspapers, magazines, radio and TV Spanish networks, and have a book published.

Finally, I would like to invite you to stand out from your piers (in your classroom, your job or business) and enjoy together the Spanish language and culture under my guidance.

Everybody is welcome to my lessons. Mr. Cruz is looking forward to teaching/tutoring you the Spanish language and culture.

Great Spanish teacher — Luis is prompt, courteous and a pleasure to have as a tutor. He not only helps with homework but tries to get the student to really understand the language and fills in deficiencies in their knowledge base. He is also very patient. I would definitely recommend him. ...
