About Luciano

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!

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.

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

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.

Precalculus

I have a graduate degree in electrical engineering. I've been helping struggling students succeed and motivated students excel in calculus and physics courses (where calculus is applied) for several years so I'm familiar with all of the topics covered in precalculus courses. 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.
