I'm a retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer with over 20 years experience as a language instructor, cryptologic trainer, and military technical expert. In 2020 I was also a Wyzant Top 10 Tutor.

I graduated from the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California, the Forester Instituto Internacional in San Jose, Costa Rica, and earned the title of Department of Defense Master Training Specialist.

I am a native English speaker with above average proficiency scores in Spanish; graduated 1st out of 11 in my six-month Defense Language Institute Spanish course; and received the Martin Kellogg Award for distinction as the top student in class. I lived in Panama for 5 years, and have worked in Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, Cuba, Curacao, and Costa Rica. My experience includes reading, writing, speaking, interpreting, translating, transcribing, and teaching Spanish.

I also provide English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) lessons to non-native speakers and have taught English for eight years, mostly to immigrants from Central and South America.

On the technical side, I tutor ASVAB and GED test taking skills for those planning a career in the military or life after high school. My course syllabus includes 130+ study guides, a dozen videos, 120+ quizzes, and over 150 practice tests covering all areas of the ASVAB and GED.

I tutor local clients in the Naples, Florida area and students on-line everywhere.

Contact me today if you're looking for an experienced, certified, and proven language tutor, help with your child's homework / course comprehension, or assistance preparing for the ASVAB/GED.

Knowledge and patient

I enjoyed my session with Luke. He was both knowledgeable and patient with me studying for the asvab. His background experience and tutoring experience makes him perfect for what I needed. I look forward to learning more with Luke.

Asvab-Army

I loved his teachings. He is very organized and prepared to give you the success you need. He doesn’t yell at you and make you feel stupid like other tutors when you are confused about the lesson or when you make mistakes. He kindly explains things in respectful tone. He has separate study guide each time for all lessons. I get copy of each lesson and I can always go back a month later to review accordingly. I would lay in bed and study in my brain from how he teaches me. He is the best of the best, that I’ve had so far and I am grateful. Thank you Luke🙏🏿👉🏼❤️🤛

Session 1

Luke and I spent our session planning a strategy to get me to my goals. I'm very confident in his abilities to get me where I want to be.

Asvab-Army First Lesson

Luke tone of voice brings me compete understanding of what a teacher/tutor is, and what I need to know and learn. He explains things to make me understand how to do them and not trick me with guessing game like other tutors. Our first session made me felt even more confident that he will be there to help me get to where I need to be. So far I feel respect, professionalism, and a true caring person that knows what he’s doing, and wants the best for me to join the Army. I am starting to work with him 4 times a week, and I’m so excited to learn and be the best.
