##### About Luis

Hi, my name is Luis. I'm a B.A. candidate in the Mathematics department at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I plan on pursuing a Ph.D in Mathematics and getting involved in collegiate or secondary school education. This past semester at Vassar I've been employed as a student tutor. As a math tutor at Vassar, I'm responsible for assisting students in Single Variable Calculus (Calc I & II), Multivariable Calculus (Calc III), and Linear Algebra.

Prior to enrolling at Vassar College I was a tutor at Middlesex Community College (MxCC) in Middletown, CT. At MxCC I tutored students in courses from Pre-Algebra to Single Variable Calculus. During the spring semester of 2014 at MxCC I also acted as a Student Instructor (SI) for a class in Pre-Algebra (MAT*085). I'm fluent in Spanish and am open to tutoring a student with English as a second language (Spanish being their primary language).

What I enjoy most about tutoring is guiding students through a difficult problem and seeing them fully understand the underlying concept. I believe that tutoring is mutually beneficial; I see any obstacle that a student may be facing as an opportunity for me to learn new ways of effectively teaching the material with respect to the student’s abilities and or perspective. As a tutor, the key to success is patience with a student—we’ve all been there. My only expectation is that a student to be prepared and eager to learn.

The relevant course work in math that I’ve taken at Vassar includes: Multivariable Calculus (Calc. III), Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, and Elementary Number Theory. I also have extensive experience in Single Variable Calculus, Pre-Calculus, Algebra, and Pre-Algebra.
