How can you teach math to a child who doesn't speak English but is smart in math but doesn't understand?

I am tutoring a non-English speaking student who just speaks Spanish. I understand what the child is saying but he knows math but once inside the classroom he doesn't understand what the teacher asks of him. How can I help him understand me and the school does not offer ESL (English Second Language) classes. They are looking to throw him out of the school because the school doesn't want to help this child.
