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.
