…While I was growing up, in Mexico, I had the opportunity of being an exchange student in England, Spain, and the United States, from this experiences I realized the importance of learning a foreign language and a country’s culture.
I hold a Master's in Communications with a major in advertising and broadcasting from Anahuac University, Mexico. I worked as a copy writer, voice-over talent, creating content and directing commercials and demos for Spanish broadcasting networks and corporate companies.
I started tutoring students and teaching during the years I lived in Mexico. I love to teach.
In 1994, I had the opportunity to pursue a degree in business entertainment in the city of Philadelphia where I started working at the French Communication Institute, teaching Spanish as a SL, and continue with one on one tutoring.
I have experience with all different age groups and expectations. Whether you need to achieve conversational fluency, or are currently looking for some extra help, traveling or just simply in need to improve Spanish for your business, I can help you. My background in communications, being a native speaker, and extensive traveling experiences have given me an ample knowledge of the Spanish language.
I tailor classes according to your needs, covering: grammar, pronunciation, conversation, vocabulary and cultural diversity.

My daughter said she learned more from Lourdes in 2 hours than she did from her teacher in a year. Lourdes always responded to my emails in a timely fashion, she is very thorough and my daughter enjoyed her tutoring. I would highly recommend her as a Spanish tutor. 5 stars to her. Lourdes had no problem calling me, to discuss the situation and was willing to help out in any way that she could. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Spanish/English tutor.
Lourdes really takes the time to help my son understand Spanish and not just memorize it. We look forward to seeing his progress in the language and appreciate her dedication. She is also very responsive with communications.
There is no much to say here. Lourdes is just excellent!! She's very dedicated, flexible, patient and knowledgeable. Both my daughter and my son love working with her and she helped them to be successful in only few lessons.
I love Lourdes as a Spanish teacher for my daughter. Her energetic personality made learning fun. She has many great textbooks too. She knows how to appeal to a 7 year-old's learning style by using cryaons(my daughter loves drawing pictures) and keeping her engaged. She always explains to me what my daughter learns each class. She is sweet, caring, and knowledgeable. I would like her to be my daughter's Spanish teacher who can commit in the long term. I highly recommend Lourdes as a tutor not only for my daughter but for anyone looking to study Spanish.
Lourdes has been a great tutor for my son. He went from a D to an A in Spanish class. Lourdes comes fully prepared to each lesson. She is a pleasure to have come to our house. She is easy to work with and very friendly. She returns emails right away and if there a chance she maybe late, she always lets us know.
Lourdes is very good with my daughter who was struggling with 9th grade Spanish. She was able to immediately connect with my 15 year old. She is now keeping up with the class and passing her quizzes and tests because Lourdes has been so helpful with one on one tutoring. She is punctual, responsible and pleasant. I would recommend her for anyone's child to help.
My son started working with her after repeatedly receiving Ds in his Spanish class. I was worried sick that he might end the course with a C or worse a D, so I hoped that Senora Lourdes could help him learn Spanish better.
After meeting with Senora every Monday, my son's Spanish score heightened to a stable B and stopped his parade of C or D quiz grades. According to my son, Senora was not only a good teacher but a good person with a friendly personality and he had fun learning the subject with her.
I can't imagine what his grade would have been if it wasn't for Senora Lourdes who constantly reminded him of his forgotten vocabularies and grammar rules from his earlier Spanish classes and my son told me how she patiently went over the peculiar grammar rules.
I recommend Senora Lourdes to anyone who needs some help in his or her Spanish course. She's overall friendly, encouraging, humorous and (obviously) good at Spanish!
Lourdes has been tutoring me in Spanish for the last couple weeks. She always comes prepared with materials, printouts, and activities. She does a great job of tailoring the class to my needs. She is able to adequately explain different language concepts when I have questions. My Spanish has definitely improved in the short time she has taught me. Highly recommended!
Lourdes is great with the girls. She really goes over everything and takes her time. Lourdes helps them with the basics of Spanish. She will go over homework they are having trouble with and help them with exams coming up.
Lourdes helped my three year old granddaughter feel comfortable and at ease. She brought appropriate length activities for a young child. She was able to keep my granddaughter engaged and learning for an hour. This is no easy feat with a three year old. The enjoyable experience starts a child learning without anxieties. What a wonderful experience. My granddaughter is looking forward to Lourdes next visit.
My granddaughter continues to feel more and more comfortable and now speaks some Spanish with Lourdes. She enjoys the songs and activities and stays busy all of the hour.
Lourdes and my granddaughter have a happy time together. She doesn't realize that she's learning Spanish. Her teacher for group Spanish said she is making great strides. Her family does not speak Spanish at home, but wants her to be bilingual as much as possible. Her one on one time with Lourdes has increased her facility with Spanish. We feel very lucky.
I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson with Lourdes Mireles. She was professional and very well prepared to work with me to bring my Spanish to a new level. I really look forward to our next meeting.
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.
I would like to offer tutoring in Spanish Public Speaking because: I have a degree in Communication Science, part of the curriculum was public speaking; I am licensed by the Mexican Academy of Broadcasters, allowing me to broadcast in Spanish in either Radio or TV; I graduated from the school of Radio Broadcasters in Mexico; I worked previously as Spanish voice-over talent, independently, and for the Televisa-Radiopolis Network in Mexico City.
Conversation, vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and cultural diversity are integrated in the lessons to accommodate student's specific needs.
I have taken the TOEFL examination previously, as it is a requirement for foreign students prior living in the United States.
