My name is Luz. I am a native Spanish speaker. I was born and raised in Colombia, South America. I moved to the United States in 1982, and became a U.S. citizen in 2000. I have 13 years of experience as a Spanish teacher in the United States. I have taught Spanish to elementary school children (Pre-K to 8) and adults. I love teaching Spanish. I can help you with your Spanish lessons, or simply teach you to read & write correctly in Spanish. I am a very kind and helpful person. My name is Luz. I am a native Spanish speaker.

I have three young children between the ages of 8 and 10. The children have been taking Spanish lessons through different organizations on and off for the last few years. I had been very disappointed in the progress they were making. However, over the last 8 months Mrs. K began tutoring the children. During this time, I have seen the most improvement and advancement in their comprehension of the language. Mrs. K has explained the word usage in a way that is easy for the kids to grasp. They are developing an understanding of the concepts and beginning to speak the dialog. Mrs. K is warm, professional and honest...all traits I need when picking the perfect person to teach my children and be in my home. Not everyone has the "gift" to teach, Mrs. K. definitely does.
Luz works hard to verify my child's understanding of the Spanish he is learning. He is not one to admit he doesn't understand something readily and she makes sure he remembers new vocabulary using various teaching methods. My son really likes working with her since her teaching style is so positive.
Luz is really a great tutor! Our daughter has improved to to A's in just a few weeks!!!
Hello Teresa F.
Thank you so much for your feedback. I appreciate it. Thank you and God Bless you.
Luz is such a wonderful tutor! She has helped me with speaking and writing Spanish in such a comfortable and knowledgeable way. She was always on time and prepared with materials to help me improve my Spanish. Luz is the best tutor I have ever had and I would highly recommend her for anyone wanting to improve their Spanish skills.
Luz is a wonderful teacher! She is not only practiced at teaching Spanish, she is also patient and kind. She adapts perfectly to my needs while I learn. I feel like I receive the highest benefit possible from our lessons. I wanted a tutor who is a native Spanish speaker that has also lived in the US for some time; she is a perfect fit for what I was looking for. Finally, she is always punctual and gives me 100% of her attention. I highly recommend her!
My daughter was having a hard time grasping Spanish but now gets As and Bs consistently. Luz is very patient and explains the lessons well. Thank you Luz.
Ms. Luz has been a wonderful change for my daughter in helping with Spanish. My daughter loves her and her teaching methods. She keeps the lessons moving and interesting. She is very observant and notices if she might be losing the student and grabs her attention quickly with different teaching techniques. Always prompt and a treasure to have.
Since four months I have Spanish classes with Luz three times a week. I made huge progress and this is definitely because of her. She is very patient and brings me over and over interesting new ways of learning the Spanish language. I highly recommend her and I will keep on having lessons with her for the rest of my stay in Texas.
Luz is an excellent tutor! She is patient and encouraging and is willing to take as long as necessary to explain everything the student needs to cover for that week. Would not hesitate to recommend her.
My son did extra Spanish classes with Luz. She makes the student feel very comfortable, she is very sweet. Would definitely use her again.
I really enjoy working with Luz. She is punctual professional and in tune with my goals. I highly recommend her.
Luz is an excellent tutor. She is helping me learn to speak Spanish on a conversational level, and she patiently guides me through each lesson. Luz is knowledgeable, professional, and enthusiastic. She always arrives promptly with a big smile! I would highly recommend Luz to anyone wanting to learn Spanish.
Luz is teaching me to understand and speak Spanish. The most important thing I want to say about her is that she creates a safe learning environment in which I feel free to make mistakes as I learn. She shares her own stories with me as she helps with listening skills, and she is patient when I share my stories with her as I practice speaking skills. I have asked Luz to correct me every time I make a mistake and she does that constructively so that I can learn the language correctly and enjoy learning as I go. I know that I can progress with her guidance. She is also prompt, enthusiastic, and just a special nice person. Gracias por ayudarme, Luz.
Luz is tutoring our 8 year old daughter in Spanish. We are very happy with the progress and we highly recommend her. Another plus is that she is always on time (which is rare these days ).
Mrs. K is an amazing tutor and I know for a fact that without her help I would not have been able to pass my college level Spanish 3 and 4 classes. She came to every one of our tutoring sessions on time and with an enthusiasm to help me learn the language that she loves. She was able to provide me with multiple practice sheets every session that helped in practicing all of the verb tenses and conjugations. She was very patient when it came to concepts that I had a hard time grasping and was even able to provide me with tricks and tips to help remember those hard to grasp concepts. She is an excellent tutor and I would recommend her to anyone who is taking Spanish regardless of the academic level.
Luz was very knowledgeable and patient. She was very flexible with her schedule which meant a lot to me. I will definitely use her again.
Luz is great and did a fine job with my four year old son. She made lessons exciting for my son and kept him focused.
Luz is great. She has been teaching our daughter Spanish for over a year now. Our daughter, Kasey, looks forward to her lesson each week. She always arrives on time and well prepared. She brings interesting lessons for Kasey each week and keeps her well engaged. It is very apparent that Kasey is learning.
very punctual, flexible to my needs, professional
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
