I've been a math and physics tutor for seven years. 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!

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!
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.
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.
Really helped me grasp the understanding of college physics. Is very knowledgable about the topic and comes prepared to help. He's the main reason I got a good grade in the class
He was really good at walking through problems i struggled with and showing me different ways to solve them so i could find one that was best for me
Luciano helped me understand derivative rules.He worked with me and helped me make sense of what I was doing. I highly recommend him.
Luciano was early to my tutoring session as usual and was able to help me prepare for my final exam
Luciano has been extremely helpful in explaining Physics concepts. Would definitely recommend him for his patience, knowledge, and hard work. Goes above and beyond to help!
Luciano helped me use the 1st and 2nd derivative test to find minima, maxima, and critical points of polynomial functions. He especially was helpful with allowing me to visualize the concepts, so that I could not only solve the problems but actually understand the answers!
Luciano was very helpful. He did a little research in advance which was helpful and also helped me with Excel which I was not familiar with.
Calculus beginning basics. Helped get refresher and back on track. Mainly focused on functions and their graphs. Luciano was very helpful and very kind. Thank you very much for your help.
Physics for engineering, which he knows very well, and he is my go to physics tutor. He explains some basic concepts if He sees me not getting what he explains.
Luciano is very good tutor. He is easily available, always willing to work with you around your time, and very patient. I'll continue to use his service for my son's math lessons!
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.
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.
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.
