About Luis

I am a native Spanish speaker. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish Language (Departmental Honors) from Herbert H. Lehman College, where I was awarded The Hannah E. Bergman Memorial Prize for Excellence in Spanish. In addition, I took graduate courses in Spanish Literature at CUNY Graduate School and Education courses at Grand Canyon University, respectively. In addition, I am a self-published author who love writing short stories and poems in Spanish.

During the last 18 years I served as a social worker within the Spanish speaking community of NYC, work that I complemented with private Spanish tutoring and editing. Consequently, my working experience range from providing literacy training to both children and adults to providing leadership workshops to youth, and parenting skills training to parents in Spanish. However, I am passionate about teaching Spanish language and my preference is to teach on a one-to-one or small-group basis.

I feel comfortable working with people of all ages, so I teach Spanish to everyone. If you are a Middle School, High School or College level student, I will support and enhance your different skills in conversation, pronunciation, reading, writing and grammar.

I relate well with people from different educational, cultural and social backgrounds. So, with a combination of fun and learning, with an appropriate and professional behavior at all times, I devise lessons that will motivate students and will promote language improvement. Thus, to enable students to learn Spanish effectively, I specifically design the lessons focusing on the needs of each student. Lessons mostly contain a good balance of grammar and vocabulary with interactive conversation and role play in real-life situations.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with learning high quality Spanish language.

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.

Spanish

I am a native Spanish speaker with over 20 years of experience providing private Spanish lessons. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish Language (Departmental Honors) from Herbert H. Lehman College, where I was awarded The Hannah E. Bergman Memorial Prize for Excellence in Spanish. In addition, I took graduate courses in both Spanish literature and Education at CUNY Graduate School and Grand Canyon University, respectively.

I enjoy tutoring to help students of all ages and grade levels succeed in Spanish comprehension and fluency. Able to relate well to students, my lessons are designed to meet their specific needs and learning styles. Nevertheless, most lessons cover the areas of speaking, writing, reading and listening. In this way, lessons contain a good balance of grammar and vocabulary with interactive conversation and role play, simulating real-life situations.
