Being able to speak and understand Spanish has become a successful tool in today's global economy and international communications.
Teaching has always been a part of my life. I had the opportunity to teach Spanish grammar and composition to high school students in my home country, Colombia, for 7 years. It became a truly wonderful and satisfying experience being able to share and see the progress of each of my students.
I love the Spanish language and I want to teach and share the wonderful aspects of our language and culture with others.
My students will have two options, they may come to my home or I could go to theirs if more convenient. Considering that time is valuable for both parties, cancellations will need to have at least three hours' notice and make-up classes can be arranged.

I have tried a few Spanish teachers over the past 5 years but after the 3rd lesson I give up because they just follow a book. Jorge has a very different method and approach to teaching which is both practical and enjoyable. For the first time I feel confident that on my next trip to Mexico or Central America I will be able to converse with the local people and hence get much more out of the trip.
Jorge is great!! He is very personable and considerate and personalized the lessons to my needs. So helpful and easy to work with! I have very much enjoyed working with him.
We hired Jorge to teach our CFO and one of our Directors, Spanish. Jorge does a great job, is very friendly and encouraging. Thus far, we have had positive feedback from both our CFO and Director and they hope to continue on with the lessons.

Jorge does a great job of making the Spanish lessons a fun learning experience. He brings so much energy and enthusiasm to the table! It is certainly time well spent, and we highly recommend him!
Jorge has been very helpful with a delightful upbeat personality from day one! He has provided my supervisor with the the very best tutoring he could have asked for! He is extremely pleased with the outcome and the continuing education that he gets from Jorge in their weekly sessions. Jorge goes above and beyond to deliver exactly what you are looking for in a tutor and it is greatly appreciated! I would recommend him to anyone that needs the very best in tutoring! You will not be disappointed! Thank you Jorge for your awesome knowledge and tutoring skills! We appreciate you!
Jorge has helped a great deal with my advanced college Spanish class. He becomes personally invested in my success, which makes me feel that we are a team.
Jorge is very thorough in teaching the basic fundamentals of Spanish alphabet, grammar, and counting numbers (very essential...especially if you're traveling to a Spanish-speaking country). I've learned quite a bit of material over the past month and Jorge makes it a lot of fun! He has a very positive attitude and is always encouraging which really helps in the process of learning. It's difficult to learn another language but, when you have a tutor that makes it fun and yet, challenges you at the same time, it lightens the burden and makes it a very pleasant experience.
Jorge is a detailed and patient Spanish tutor with a pleasant personality. He is a native speaker and helped with Spanish grammar and writing, making sure each weakness shown was understood before going on to the next topic. I appreciate his approach, knowledge, and demeanor and would seek his assistance again in the future.
Mr. L sees my son three times a week. He always arrives a few minutes early and stays a few minutes after. He has made the classes fun, to the point where my son looks forward to classes during the summer. I am impressed by how much my son has learned in a short period of time. I would highly recommend Mr. L to any family in need of tutoring!
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.
