Isaac Mera

Isaac is a lawyer from Perú who has always had a passion for languages (and animals!), and has taught for nearly a decade. He used to teach English in his home country, and he has been teaching Spanish since he moved to D.C. Isaac loves his job because it allows him to learn about the world through his students' experiences and cultures. He strives to be the kind of tutor who works hard to get to know each student and caters his lessons to their interests, and he always ensures that his classes are fun and interesting! Isaac is also passionate about politics, the environment, and good movies. And trust us when we say that he’s probably one of the sweetest and nicest people you’ll ever meet - really!
