About Luciano


Bio

I like to treat a tutoring session as a conversation, and I really enjoy talking to students. I have a varied background, from construction work to testing rocket motors. I received my BS in Electrical Engineering from Arizona State University and a graduate degree in electrical engineering from the University of Utah. In addition to these qualifications, I'm a CRLA level I certified tutor.

I like to treat a tutoring session as a conversation, and I really enjoy talking to students. I have a varied background, from construction work to testing rocket motors. I received my BS in Electrical Engineering from Arizona State University and a graduate degree in electrical engineering from the University of Utah. In addition to these qualifications, I'm a CRLA level I certified tutor.

Some advice: Choosing a tutor can be a bit hit or miss. Finding someone technically competent is the easy part. It's a little harder to find someone who can also communicate his or her understanding, but probably most experienced tutors will also meet this requirement. Unfortunately, you can't know for sure how it's going to go until you try. So my advice is to meet with more than one tutor and find someone you feel comfortable talking to without feeling intimidated, someone who you feel cares about your progress. When you find that person, you'll get your money's worth.

If you're motivated to learn, I'm motivated to help you. That's true whether you just need a little help to understand a concept or are struggling through a class. Having spent my share of time as a student, I understand the frustration and confusion of sitting in a demanding class without completely understanding the material. Some of that is unavoidable (there's evidence that students understand physics concepts LESS well after their first formal physics course!), but a good tutor can help. Given the background and a reasonable amount of effort, I feel that anyone can learn math and physics. So let's get started!

Calculus,

Calculus

I've been helping struggling students to succeed and have been motivating students to excel in calculus and physics courses (where calculus is applied) for several years. I'll adjust to your needs: We can talk about concepts or focus on problem solving. We can go through problems step by step or just sketch an approach and move on. Your questions won't go unanswered. I'll follow up or provide additional resources as needed.
Physics

Physics

I have a graduate degree in electrical engineering. I've tutored introductory physics students for six years. I've also taught physics supplemental instruction courses at the University of Utah. Physics is my favorite subject to study and tutor because it is fundamental to understanding how the world works. I'll adjust to your needs: We can talk about concepts or focus on problem solving. We can go through problems step by step or just sketch an approach and move on. Your questions won't go unanswered. I'll follow up or provide additional resources as needed.

Business calc tutor

Although Luciano wasn't precisely familiar with my particular calculus class he was able to quickly and thoroughly explain the material to me. He even reached out after the sessions to offer help and was more focused on me absorbing knowledge than getting the session over with. Thanks again!

Collin, 3 lessons with Luciano

Knowable and clear

Luciano helped me with my physics. He helped me figure out how to approach a problem and better understand Newton's first and second law's. I will definitely be working with him again. He is patient and explains the material clearly.

Chelsea, 12 lessons with Luciano

Excellent Tutor!

Luciano has been a great tutor for Calculus 2 at ASU! He is very knowledgeable of the subject, is very available, and very professional! We highly recommend Luciano!

Zoey, 5 lessons with Luciano

GREAT TUTOR

There is no doubt that Luciano is intelligent, but what makes a huge impact on me is his patience. He seems to genuinely care about helping me understand University Physics. Thank you, Luciano!

Tanya, 5 lessons with Luciano

Great Tutor!

He easily broke down each method and equations used to solve each problem in a way that I could understand and reapply on my own!

Tim, 2 lessons with Luciano

great teacher

Great review and thanks to Luciano, I understood math better. And i hope to work with him more in the future.

Nawaf, 1 lesson with Luciano

Very knowledgeable tutor

My daughter feels more confident about physics than she did prior to meeting Luciano. Meet times are very convenient to her college schedule. It is well worth the money to help her succeed.

Sheri, 4 lessons with Luciano

Excellent tutor

Luciano helps my son in his Honors Physics to really grasp the topics that he struggles with. He takes my son to the next level of understanding of this complex subject. He's awesome. Thanks so much Luciano!

Allison, 2 lessons with Luciano

Incredibly helpful tutor!

Incredibly knowledgeable and patient tutor for my brother. Very appreciative of him! Helps my brother with advanced and tough physics problems, as well as reviews old materials.

Katie, 9 lessons with Luciano

Great and experienced tutor

Luciano helped me with my calc 2 class, he helped me understand many difficult problems. Showed me different ways to approach problems that my teacher didn't show.
