Have Fun Learning Spanish!

I am passionate about Spanish because Spanish is spoken by over 400 Million people in more than 20 countries, and it is the most popular foreign language in American Schools.

I am a native Spanish speaker, and a professional with a degree in Business Management. I have more than 10 years of experience providing private Spanish teaching/ tutoring working with students at all levels business groups, adults, couples, realtors, lawyers, foreing service, interior designers,retiree, teenagers and young students.

I have worked with students from Thomas Jefferson High, McLean High, Langley High, the Nysmith School, South Lakes High, Forestville Elementary, Buzz Aldrin Elementary, Oakton High, St. John's High, Great Falls High - among many others.

At the same time, I work with small business groups, professionals including lawyers, engineers, home-makers - as well as anyone involved in international business or simply interested in the thrill of learning another language. I've had great success working with couples who wish to experience the thrill of learning together. I've also worked with retirees seeking to improve their memory skills by pursuing Spanish as a new

I have a passion for teaching and helping others. I love to provide students with exceptional learning experiences. I love working with students and blending traditional teaching methods with technology to enhance the learning experience. It is such a joy to watch the excitement blossom within a student as the learning starts to take hold.

The gift of language is an investment that lasts a lifetime, and it should be fun, exciting and meaningful. Learning to communicate in a foreign language - thus opening the door to another world - is one of the most important achievements in life.

I have lived and worked in South and Central America and have traveled to more than 10 Spanish speaking countries. I have also traveled to many other countries around the world to learn about other cultures.

I would love to help guide you i

Outstanding Spanish Tutor

Lorna has been a warm and patient tutor who has quickly assessed my level of Spanish and offered me a wonderful array of tools and techniques for a fun learning process. We spend equal amounts of time on grammar and conversation. I truly look forward to meeting with her each week! Lorna makes tutoring fun to look forward to. I actually want to study in between sessions so I can speak more easily with her during our time together. I'm having a great time upgrading my Spanish!

Wonderful personality and highly patient

Ms. Lorna has transformed our son's interest in Spanish and he has been scoring very highly on his tests in school. This was a kid who was completely disinterested in the language arts and what Lorna has done for him has been nothing short of miraculous. Furthermore, she has been very flexible with our changing schedule when she can. We highly recommend Lorna.

Thank you very much for your feedback. The best gift for me is to hear that my students are improving and getting better and better every day. At the same time, I love to know that my students are learning how to appreciate and enjoyed learning another language. He is a very sweet, smart, dedicated and intelligent boy Again thank you! Have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!

Excellent tutor who focuses on what you need help with

I have been with my Spanish speaking wife for 3 years now and in that time have learned quiet a bit of Spanish (@ home and through immersion in Spanish speaking countries); however, I was still having difficulty conversing. In just a few lessons with Lorna (~7), I have been able to greatly improve my confidence in speaking and my listening comprehension. I went from barely being able to converse at all with my father-in-law to actually being able to have conversations. Lorna is patient and accommodating and uses a variety of methods to keep you focused and expanding your vocabulary. She's also great at correcting pronunciation and focusing on the things that you specifically need.

Great tutor who achieves results.

Lorna is going a great job tutoring my child in Spanish. She is thorough, professional, kind and very astute in interacting with and encouraging children. She uses every minute of the lesson productively and makes a special effort to provide information which the child can review in between lessons. Her kindness and sense of humor are present during every lesson. Her desire to have your child succeed is obvious during every session. From our perspective, we could not ask for a better qualified tutor with such strong interpersonal skills. You'll be making the right decision if you hire Lorna as your child's Spanish tutor!

My son enjoys learning with Lorna

My son seems to enjoy each session with Lorna, feels he is really learning, and is more relaxed about Spanish homework. Before he was very frustrated with Spanish and his school Spanish teacher. He is still frustrated with the school teacher, but the work is going better. Thank you.

What a great teacher!

My daughter in 3rd grade and has been learning Spanish for a year. When we started to look for a Spanish teacher, Mrs. Lorna profile at WyzAnt and few other websites seem to be exactly what we were looking for. After several lessons, my daughter told me that she is the best teacher ever! Since March when we started to have weekly classes, my daughter's Spanish really emerged and she is putting a lot of effort, mainly due to the love to language Mrs Lorna brings into the classroom. We are so happy with the lessons in general and so with the curriculum developed by Mrs Lorna that include also electronic tools, making the lessons real fun. My daughter can’t wait till the next lesson and practices the entire week in order to be able to learn something new. Mrs Lorna is amazing teacher and we are so happy!

Energetic and Committed to Helping Student

Great tutor! Lorna has a great personality. She is motivated and caring about her student progress. She is flexible with her schedule. Thank you for helping our son improving his Spanish.

Tutor responded:

Thank you very much Troy! I really appreciate your feedback. The best gift for me is to hear that my students are improving and feeling confident with Spanish. Learning a new language should be fun and excited as well as meaningful.

Great Tutor

In addition to her ability to teach Spanish, by working with Lorna, my son is gaining much needed skills and confidence, and actually enjoying learning the language once again. Prior to his work with her, we'd quit entertaining the idea that he could actually like learning Spanish, and are happy that he not only enjoys his tutoring sessions, but has gotten back on track with his studies as well. Thanks Lorna!

Tutor responded:

Thank You Kathy, my heart is fill with happiness and joy every time that I hear that my students are improving and gaining confidence. This is the best gift for me.

The best tutoring experience ever

Lorna is excellent with both spoken and written Spanish. In just a short period of time our son went from failing Spanish to achieving a “B”. Lorna is punctual, communicative, and most importantly, able to connect with her student. I would not hesitate to refer Lorna as Spanish tutor to anyone.
