About Carlos


Bio

I am a Civil Engineer. I have 7+ years of professional experience in 1-on-1 tutoring. I'm also fluent in Spanish, English and basic Portuguese.

My first session will be an assessment. I do not see tutoring your child for months on end as a solution. Tutoring is meant to be temporary and motivate the student to work on their own. That being said I usually try my best to have the student caught up and ahead of the class as quickly as possible, with the help of the parents. Take this into...

I am a Civil Engineer. I have 7+ years of professional experience in 1-on-1 tutoring. I'm also fluent in Spanish, English and basic Portuguese.

My first session will be an assessment. I do not see tutoring your child for months on end as a solution. Tutoring is meant to be temporary and motivate the student to work on their own. That being said I usually try my best to have the student caught up and ahead of the class as quickly as possible, with the help of the parents. Take this into consideration when deciding the budget, the days we meet and the hours we spend per session.

The first session should be a pep talk and assessment with solutions to quick problems. The next session should be a week in review and resolving difficult concepts. The third session should be week in review, resolving difficult concepts and week ahead in preview. By this time the student should be caught up and asking the teacher what is on the curriculum the next week. They will have learned how to investigate on their own and solve their own problems either by internet search, by study groups with other students or by talking with teachers and counsellors.
