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.

Best and most patience tutor

I am grateful my mom found Luke to help me achieve my goal. He prepared me to take my ASVAB exam and I increased my score over 20+ points. Luke understand the areas you need more help with and he focuses on it until you get it. He is very flexible and understanding. I highly recommend Luke to help you succeed in your goals.
