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.

ASVAB

I am a Retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer and Training Supervisor specializing in military entry testing (ASVAB) and high school diploma equivalency (GED) test taking. On active duty I led 12 enlisted instructors teaching a 10-course curriculum, graduating 250 students annually with a less than 3% attrition rate. Upon initially entering the Navy, my personal ASVAB Scores were Mathematics Knowledge (MK) 68 out of 68 (99%); Numerical Operations (NO) 62 out of 62 (99%); Paragraph Comprehension (PC) 63 out of 63 (99%); Verbal Expression (VE) 61 out of 61 (99%); Word Knowledge (WK) 60 out of 61 (98%); General Science (GS) 61 out of 68 (90%); Arithmetic Reasoning (AR) 56 out of 66 (85); Electronics (EI) 58 out of 70 (83%); Coding Speed (CS) 54 out of 72 (75%); Mechanical (MC) 51 out of 70 (73%); Auto and Shop (AS) 44 out of 69 (64%). My AFQT score was 85 out of a possible 99 (ranked in the top 15% of all ASVAB test takers). I qualified for every enlisted job and school, including the Navy's top program - the nuclear propulsion field.

Very knowledgeable tutor!

I enjoyed learning from the tutor and would definitely recommend. The only issue was that it was a little hard to hear. I thought it was an issue on my side, but the next tutor I had I could hear them very clearly. Other than that everything was great!

Great first lesson!

ASVAB prep…Luke explains various subjects in a way that is easy to comprehend. We discussed career goals, percentages, and word problems during the first lesson. Looking forward to the next class.
