Hello,

I'm Carlos. It has always been inspiring to me to assist in a student's scholastic and personal development, and help them realize their unique potential. I enjoy contributing to a student's growth in this way. I am currently employed as an educational director, attorney, consultant, and adviser, after having earned three university degrees, and am accustomed to helping people learn. I adopt a very flexible approach to tutoring and mentoring to allow a student to open up and feel comfortable talking to someone outside their home environment to best determine and work on their greatest areas of need and growth. I help each student set goals, develop an understanding of their desired educational path, and focus on a tutoring plan to cover individual subjects and needs. I can also help students identify their strengths and desirable career path. I have tutored and mentored at-risk youth, elementary, high school, university, pre-graduate, law school and pre-medical school students on different subjects ranging from: English, grammar, reading and writing, paper editing, public speaking, college, law school, and graduate school preparation and paper writing, editing, and proofreading, the basics of what it requires to run a business, marketing, advice on students' social interactions to best prepare them for personal growth and helping define expectations for their educational pursuits and professional lives. Whether a student comes to me with a paper due in 24 hours, or to help study for a big exam they need to prepare for in two months' time, or to meet regularly to change their study habits and cultivate strong grades or overall performance, I believe tutoring is about helping a student get results, and I've devoted my tutoring expertise successfully towards that goal.

The First Tutoring Session:
I usually use at least a portion of the first session to get to know what your goals and needs are and to determine the best approach to take to meet those goals. I don't believe there is one way to tutor or teach each student; every situation is different and requires careful reflection with parental input.

Subsequent Tutoring Sessions:
For subsequent sessions, expectations, lesson plans, and execution of the student's goals are emphasized. I try to be as flexible as possible to the student's desired scope of the tutoring session while offering guidance and direction. The sessions can be very material-intensive and geared for specific considerations, or have a broader scope. My tutoring sessions promote a lot of enthusiasm, because learning and improving should be celebrated and enjoyed by the student.

I am always open to negotiate something to fit a particular student's needs and costs. I am also very strong at teaching English as a second language (ESL) students. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in a tutoring/mentoring arrangement, or if you have further questions.

My approach is centered on the student doing the work, while I provide the guidance, scope, refining, and environment, as needed for them to achieve and excel. Most of my students earn strong, if not exceptional grades, and I hope that track record continues for future students. I look forward to meeting you to help you achieve your goals!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Carlos is a terrific all around teacher; patient, kind, and, most important, he knows exactly how to organize my son's studies to put him in the best position to do well on the upcoming interview. He showed up at our first session well prepared. He goes beyond as a tutor to the point where you can really tell he actually cares about the end result for the child. He follows through and you can tell he has his own internal standards that says he wants to make sure you get what you need. Thank you for being the type of tutor that just goes the extra step. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a very bright, easy to work with, excellent tutor! Highly pleased with Carlos.

Very knowledgeable and informative tutor!

Carlos does a very great job of breaking down difficult concepts in ways one can easily understand. Very informative and enthusiastic about the way he teaches! Gets straight to the point and doesn't waste time.

Connected Well with My Son

I am writing this review to let anyone who may be needing a tutor to know that Carlos comes highly recommended. He tutored my son who has Asperger's and he connected very effortlessly and was very effective in teaching my son Business Law. I truly believe that people are born teachers and nurturers. I am glad Carlos helped my son. We have had some not so great experiences with other tutors, people who look good on paper but lack that special touch to teach others. So if you are ever in need of a tutor, Carlos is the man!

Very Patient and Experienced!

Carlos was a pleasure to work with. I submitted a last minute 9 page research paper on Religion and Violence and he advised me that he is an expert in the religious studies field. He quickly and efficiently provided thoughtful input to each paragraph and he carefully helped me clarify my ideas. Thank you so much Carlos for your professionalism!
