About Louie

Hello:
Are you looking for someone who can make Math and Science more approachable and much easier??
Are you looking for a better grade in your class?? Or are you looking to prepare for a placement test that you think it is hard to pass??! If you answer yes, then I am the one who can help you doing so.
I am a Math, Chemistry, and Physics tutor at the general tutoring lab at Los Angeles Valley College, where I received my training as a tutor. For years, I kept a great reputation and gained a very successful and excellent experience in helping college students, aiding them through difficult times, and putting them on the right path of success. My experience is not limited to college students only! But I also have a great experience tutoring high school students in multiple subjects, in one-to-one sessions throughout their academic year, some of them: I tutored for years until they graduated.
Students, I worked with, have scored higher on their finals and other placement tests.

I am very flexible in regard to when and where to meet. Patience is my philosophy and communication is my key-factor towards a successful and productive tutoring session, therefore; I am very friendly, and patient with the student.
Being on time is always my goal, and in case of emergency: I notify the student as early as possible.

Tutoring is my passion and I always look for an opportunity to aid a student, to improve his/her skills, and to bring out his/her talent. Albert Einstein said once:

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I was placed in precalculus in my assessment test at LAVC, then I tutored math (up to precalculus) at the learning center at LAVC for years.
I can teach solving linear and quadratic equations, factoring, exponential and logarithmic properties, graphs, rational numbers, etc

Chemistry

I have tutored Chemistry at the general tutoring lab at LAVC from spring 2011 until fall 2014. I was highly recommended to work at the tutoring lab by my Chemistry Professor and thereafter I maintained an excellent performance. I tutor different chemistry courses such as introductory of chemistry, principles of chemistry, and college chemistry, therefore; I can teach the following topics: Chemical Substances (Formulas and Names), Calculations with Chemical Formulas and Equations, Chemical Equations, the Gaseous State, Thermochemistry, Electron Configurations and Periodicity, Ionic and Covalent Bonding, Molecular Geometry, Solutions, Rates of Reaction, Chemical Equilibrium, and Acid and Bases, and more.

Trigonometry

in addition to receiving an A in trigonometry when I took the class at LAVC, I tutored trigonometry at the learning center at LAVC for three semesters between fall/2011-fall/2012.
I can teach: trigonometric functions, circular functions, graphs of the circular functions, trigonometric identities, inverse circular functions and trigonometric equations, and complex numbers, polar equations, and more...
