  • Juan Yactayo

    I've never met an instructor of any discipline so enthusiastic about your improvement. Two things are different about my experience with Luisa. First, she realizes everyone is different. She knows so many ways of explaining the same thing and will try different approaches until the light bulb turns on in your head. It's unbelievably rewarding when it does. Secondly, she always has your goals in mind and structures lessons to suite your individual needs. She is truly a master teacher as shown by her clientele.
