During high school, I used to tutor physics on my spare time, but now I decided to use my time wisely. I've been told that I am a great tutor, very reliable, prompt, funny yet compassionate about the student's success. I have tutored elementary school students to college students and even some older people in various math and physics courses. I can also tutor Japanese. I was the top student in my classes.
I may not be certified to teach math or physics, but I certainly have seen improvements in all my students' grades. Plus, I've heard several times that I teach the subject better than most teachers and professors. I'm very patient while tutoring, so that the student can fully understand the material. I assign and check homework. My method is to ask in what area the student needs help, see how the student approaches the problem, then provide feedback/input. I like being asked questions, as it helps to make tutoring a wonderful experience.
I prefer to tutor in a library or other places (i.e. Starbucks, Panera Bread); but I don't mind making accommodations. Commuting is easy for me. Last but not least, I can speak Spanish.

Luis is a great tutor. He is very patient, extremely polite and my son is learning a lot from him. I highly recommend him.
Luis was patient with my son and is a great tutor. He was flexible with his schedule and responded quickly.
Respectful, very gentle and tries to explain for you to understand. I took physics tutoring and got a B on my test after getting a D. He gave me great tips and helped me out but I still had to study a lot on my own -- tutors don't do miracles.
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.
I took Algebra 2 as an honors class in 10th grade. I think this was my favorite math class, because it was a good challenge. Also, I helped out a lot of my classmates that had difficulties in this subject.
In 11th grade, I took AP Calculus and Honors Precalculus, because my teacher thought I could do it. Precalculus was a breeze, but it did help when I took my AP Calculus exam. Those double angle formulas come in handy. I got a 5 on AP Calc AB exam and a 4 on AP Calc BC exam.
When I was in elementary school, math was very easy for me. Also, I have experience tutoring this level of math. I use a lot of visual aids as they help my students grasp the concepts better.
I have taken 3 semesters of Japanese at Florida International University. My professors can say my Japanese is great. I am currently self-studying for the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test). I love grammar; and Japanese music helps improve my listening comprehension. I read Japanese people's tweets/blogs and facebook posts as a hobby.
In my sophomore year of high school, I enrolled in Honors Physics. It was very new to me, but after trying my hardest, I passed with an A. The next year, I took AP Physics B and got a 4 on my AP test. In my senior year, I took AP Physics C, and passed the Mechanics exam with a 5 and the Electricity & Magnetism exam with a 4.
In high school, I took Precalculus and AP Calculus at the same time. This was doable and is probably now more common in my high school. I saw the different approaches to the same problem, which excited me.
Luis A. passed a background check on 4/16/14. The check was ordered by Luis through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
