The Facilitator

Mr. Luis Quintero

Mr. Luis Quintero is a lover of people and language. Born in Latin America, Luis was so intrigued by the English Language that he watched English movies and studied English at various levels and travelled to many English-speaking countries so that he could be immersed in the language. Luis has taught both English as a foreign language and has taught Spanish as a foreign language. Luis sees teaching as conversing with students and connecting with them. He inspires students and makes learning fun and engaging. As a native Spanish speaker, Luis will be an ideal facilitator for the course which focuses on students conversing in Spanish.
