Luisa Vásquez was born in the northern part of Perú, South America, but was raised in the country's capital of Lima.  It was shortly after finishing high school that she began her studies in Graphic Design wher
e her passion for art and teaching were instigated.

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 private 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 primary instructor at Mis Amigos Learning Center.  This is where she has been able to combine her passion for teaching, working with children, art, and especially teaching her native tongue: Spanish.​​
