About Luis

I have been a teacher for thirty-two years, and have loved every moment of it. I started out teaching K-5 through K-8. I then taught high school both at home and abroad for three years. At that time I tutored in English and Writing. I also taught ESL and TOEFL for about twenty five years. During those years, I tutored for twenty years.

Tutoring has been a great passion in education in my experience because the student(s) has perfect control of his/her learning. All of the student's questions and concerns are specifically tailored for his/her learning and growth.
Since distractions are greatly minimized, the student can flourish and blossom in no time.

There are three important aspects I have learned over the years that have contributed to my being a great tutor. The first aspect is getting to know my student and establish a healthy rapport with the student. This will absolutely foster communication and confidence between the student and tutor. The next aspect is patience and encouragement on behalf of the tutor. This creates an atmosphere of willingness for the student to try and not feel pressured. This is also where the tutor's expertise, skills, and techniques come into play. Finally, as an experienced tutor, I learned that intrinsic rewards as well as putting the student's needs first will result in success and veneration.

As a tutor, I am here to help and assist you in your educational needs. You are welcomed to contact me seven days a week from 8 am to 8 pm. I will be there for you.

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.

English

I hold a teacher's diploma in the English language, and have taught and tutor high school students from the ninth grade through the twelfth grade. I also prepare students for college writing.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching and preparing students for the TOEFL and college entrance exam for twenty years. This has been a valuable and an in-depth experience firsthand to understanding precisely how to tutor students.

Grammar

I tutor students for the TOEFL, IELTS, and the English composition college entrance exam every year. I have also taught at Kaplan International Schools for twenty years at the Whittier College Campus. I can certainly tutor and prepare students with writing compositions and English grammar.

Reading

I have taught elementary levels of K 5 through K 9 at some of the most prestigious schools both here in the United States and abroad. Writing, grammar, compositions, and reading comprehension are all parts of these classes. For this reason I have the experience and expertise to tutor and prepare students for reading comprehension and writing assignments.

TOEFL

I tutored students for the TOEFL test every year for twenty years. This experience has given me an in-depth look into the preparation of the TOEFL test. I can certainly help students with precisely the expertise in the TOEFL preparation.
