"My husband and I are thankful to have Luisa as our 3 year old son's first teacher.  She is a perfect blend of strictness and kindness.  Luisa welcomed our son to her class with open arms that let him know from the start that MIS AMIGOS would be a safe and caring environment where he would learn, laugh, grow and flourish." - Jennifer Occhipinti, parent

Mis Amigos is a privatized Spanish learning circle where children are able to learn a new language through singing, social interaction, visual art, and a hands-on, play-and-learn environment - all taught by a native speaker.

She worked at a private institution for over four (4) years as an art teacher, from beginning levels of kindergarten through advanced courses in high school.  Her training as a teacher, along with various courses, workshops, and seminars, led her to implement new courses that would later be offered in that institution.

Upon her arrival to the United States, she continued her studies in English and teaching practices through prviate Spanish tutoring.  She has also taught in several private institutions (primarily in Tacoma) and after-school programs throughout Washington State.  Luisa has also led and taught Spanish classes at the Children's Museum of Tacoma as well as coordinating their Spanish Summer Camps for children ages 4 - 8 years old.

Currently, Luisa is the owner and instructor for Mis Amigos.  This is where she has been able to combine her passion for teaching, working with children, art, and especially teaching her native tongue: Spanish.
