About this pro

Hi I'm Luz . I'm from Colombia, came here 30 years ago after I graduated with a Degree in Special Education . I taught for 3 years and then I came to USA and I change my career , now I want to teach Spanish, knowing that there is a great demand for tutors in Spanish , I love to help people reach their goal , specially the conversation skills for the ones that want to practice them . And from the beginners to teach them the basics to be able to feel comfortable with a general knowledge of my native language. I have a flexible schedule so I will find a time for people needs . 

The teaching experience and achievements of people who begin to speak and understand Spanish are a great boost for them and for me as a tutor or teacher.

I love to help people break the barriers of communication with other cultures and expand the knowledge that they have about my native language.

    She is the best

    Luz has done written transcriptions and live translations for our organization for over 10 years, from english into spanish. She’s a skilled translator, and does extremely well with colloquialisms which are often the trickiest part of translating. I highly recommend her.

    I was skeptical at first as learning another language is usually a struggle for me but I figured why not give it a try. I've tried the different versions of audio lessons and spending money on small classes here and there but nothing really worked. But then I found Luzita's class and something amazing happened. She teaches at an easy and simple pace so I can understand. She talks about herself being so connected to her family and life along with her goals and I can sense that all in her classes. She is very nice and kind and demonstrates such a professional matter and works very well with each person. If you are like me and wish to find a passion or interest in learning spanish, Luzita's class is the class for you.

    She is an excellent translator. She understands the spirit of what’s being said. She also has an amazing work ethic. I highly recommend her for translation work.
