About Leo

I hold a PhD and Masters from the Université Paris 13 and both my dissertations were written in French. I taught at Andrés Bello Catholic University in Caracas, Venezuela, and currently I am faculty at Loyola University New Orleans, where I teach Spanish (from basic to conversational), French, and Latin American Studies (literature, music history, popular culture, and contemporary Latin American journalism).

I am passionate about languages and their capacity to broaden our reflexes and world views. Empathizing with the student is for me the foundation of a common ground that makes it easier for them to interact and play with the new language.

I am a skilled multicultural teacher familiar with experience in three different educational environments: American, European, and Latin American.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

French

I have native and full professional proficiency in the two languages I intend to tutor.

Spanish is my native language and French in my academic one. I wrote my PhD and Masters dissertations in French and I lived in Paris 7 years.

I read and write indifferently in the both languages I intend to tutor (and English, of course), and am permanently practicing them as a reader, professor, and in numerous interpersonal situations.

I love foreign languages and I think the world would be a more peaceful place if we were able to communicate with others using their languages, which are their most important intellectual, cultural, and human traditions.
