Learn Spanish (or tutor your child) with a professional interpreter! (Alexandria, VA)

Hi!  I’m Luz, and I grew up in Mexico City!  I’m a professional interpreter and translator, and teach Spanish classes in my spare time.  I have been teaching Spanish to Americans for years now, including many U.S. diplomats and businesspeople!  (You can learn more about my professional background by visiting my website, — I’ve interpreted and translated for firms like Google and for the U.S. State Department.)

I’m taking on a few more (online) classes now that COVID has shut down a lot of interpreting work.  If you are looking for a silver lining in this weird time, learning Spanish may be it!  Once life has returned to normal, we can consider having in-person classes, as well, if you are interested.

I have experience working with a wide variety of clients, from beginners whose Spanish starts and ends with “hola,” to professionals looking to deliver presentations and speeches to large audiences.  My interpreting and translation work also gives me expertise in many specialized areas, such as diplomacy, law enforcement, law, mining, insurance, and finance, in case you are looking to work in the language.  Or, if you are looking for someone to help your child with his or her Spanish classes, I can help!

But most of all, my classes are fun!  I take pride in creating lessons that my students enjoy as well as learn from, and am happy to tailor my content to your needs.

I am offering reduced rates during this time, at US$30/hour for single classes, with a discount if you opt for a package of four classes (US$25 each).  You can pay via Venmo, Zelle, or PayPal, so we can all continue our social distancing.  While you can certainly find cheaper classes out there, with me you are getting the quality and professionalism that comes with a certified interpreter.  I have dedicated my life to languages, and this experience comes through in my classes.

If you’re interested, please reply to this ad, and we can plan your first lesson. Hasta pronto!
