Today was my first class with Luis and it was great! He is very organized and has a well planned curriculum so time isn't wasted and the session in very productive. His methodology allows him to gage an individuals language and learning level which renders a seamless interaction. I am anxious for our next session and am very encouraged that I will learn effectively with Luis.

Luis is an excellent guide and teacher. He listens but takes control of the conversation, studying vevrything you say and don't sa. He rapidly evaluates your level of understanding and creates a teaching plan for you. I am 73 retired and have had a number of online teaches. He is among the best I have had to pleasure to work with
