Hi, my name is Luis and I love teaching and learning new languages. I am a licensed Spanish/ESL teacher in the state of Virginia. My tutoring areas of expertise are Spanish, English as a Second language, English, and Education.

My experience in teaching/tutoring goes back to 2007 when I was serving in the military. I have currently been teaching/tutoring Spanish and English as a Second Language (ESL) for more than two years. I have completed a Master's in Education from Strayer University, a Master's in Spanish Language Education at NOVA Southeastern University, and a Graduate Certificate in ESL from American College of Education. I am currently finishing a third master's in Bilingual Education at American College of Education.

In addition to teaching Spanish at an elementary school I also teach Spanish, English and Education classes at a university in Wheaton, MD.

As an educator/tutor I am very patient and understanding with my students. My teaching philosophy is not to learn fast but to learn well. I provide differentiated learning approaches to my students to make sure they understand and use the information I provide to them in real life.

Highly Qualified, Effective, Respectful Luis tutors my 17 year old son in Spanish. He has been tutoring him for over four months now and we are extremely pleased to have him. On the first day he tutored, he took time to assess my son’s learning needs and developed a strategy on how to satisfy these needs.
