If you need tutoring that will yield measurable results in Physics or Math, you need look no further.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Cum Laude, and have been teaching these subjects since 1997.

Physics and Math require not just memorization but the ability to analyze and solve problems. That we will do from our very first session. Interacting with you will allow me to see where your problem is, whether it is lack of a solid base, all the way down to just lack of confidence. Just like in sports training, we will tackle the subject via exercises and problems that get progressively more complex, all the while with a friendly hand and mind. You will master analyzing problems, coming up with strategies, solving it and simple, common-sense ways of validating your solutions. You will unlock the potential of Math and Physics as tools to solve real-life problems.

To me, Physics and Math are languages for nature, just like my native language Spanish is a language for people. They are best mastered by using and producing with them, rather than by passively absorbing them like watching TV.

I look forward to working with your students so they can achieve the success they are capable of!

DOS

I've been using DOS since the first PCs came out back in 1984, mostly as part of sequence of DOS commands in text files known as batch files. I use visual helps in explaining what DOS commands do in terms of what the user needs to achieve. With the advent of Windows and DOS now transformed into the Windows Command Line, it is even easier to show students how files, directories and folders relate by means of the graphical representation in Windows Explorer. Although DOS is not considered a programming language per se, using batch files makes it easier and fun to use sequences of commands to progressively achieve more and more complex tasks, in the process show how each command complement each other. Concepts like piping commands can be also taught that way. The user achieves a better command of DOS by using a core set of commands such as HELP, TYPE and ECHO as tools to learn about and troubleshoot other commands as needed, building confidence as more commands are learned and, above all, used together to achieve user-oriented tasks.
Microsoft Windows

Microsoft Windows

I've been exposed to MS Windows since the first stable version came out, which took advantage of more advanced modes of Intel microprocessors at the time. Most courses that teach "Windows" actually teach MS Word with a dash of Windows here and there. Windows has a plethora of basic tools for both text and graphics processing of surprising power, which can enable users to perform most basic tasks without the encumbrance and slowness of MS Office applications. My tutoring style for this subject is to progressively introduce these Windows "applets" in terms of performing user-oriented tasks of more and more complexity.

This is one of those Math subjects that mastery is a given in a college-level Engineering major. As a student, I graduated with Honors from my alma mater, Texas Tech University, with As and Bs in all math coursework. I make this subject less difficult and much more fun by leveraging on my student's everyday experience and building from there, providing that vital link between Math and real life that validates and empowers their common sense.

Best Math Tutor!

Wow, Luis was a hit with my son within minutes of his first session! Luis arrived on time and he was very professional, knowledgeable, and patient. My son was so excited to feel like for the fist time since taking Algebra this year he understands the material. He cant wait for his next session.

Thanks so much!

Professional and effective tutor

Luis has been working with our son, a high school sophomore, on geometry for a few months now. We have found him to be very reliable, professional, courteous, and friendly. He has been a huge help to our son in understanding concepts, completing homework assignments, and preparing for quizzes and tests. We have seen our son's grades consistently improve and feel that engaging Luis has been a wonderful investment. Would highly recommend him to anyone!

Your son is a genius and highly motivated to improve his grades. I'm proud of his accomplishment and happy to effectively help him. Thanks!

Amazing!

Everything about Luis was perfect. What was beyond my expectation was the level of intuition Luis has when working with child. He know just how to dive into or move over things with my child and where they had to back track to based on one meeting. Luis was very good at making my child feel safe and comfortable. When Luis was finished with the few sessions we had, my child was ready to pass Algebra. We are thankful for his dedication, knowledge and patience. I highly recommend. Thank you Luis.

Thanks so much! Your child had the motivation to do great. I was just coaching.

Great with my very active son.

My son actually looks forward to his time with mr. Luis. They work very well together and Luis is very patient.

Flexible and well-prepared

It was the first Spanish lesson in my life. He fully understood my level and organized the lesson very well to fit my capability.

Thanks so much! This tutoring is been tailored for you as a business traveler, that needs proficiency as soon as possible.

Fantastic Tutor. Very Accessible. Helpful and Dedicated.

Luis is a dream tutor. He works very hard to be sure he is available when our son needs some extra help. Luis feels that he should be the "expert" in the subject he is tutoring. So, on his own time, he brushes up on the chapter topics that he and my son will be covering. Luis is happy to use technology (Skype, scanning homework and emailing, etc) to be sure the student gets 100% support. He keeps the sessions light... in between silences where he and my son are working physics problems, I hear bursts of laughter from both of them. It really keeps the stress of the work to a minimum. A+ for Luis!

Thanks so much, Teresa! Your son is a joy to work with.

Good tutor

Luis has been tutoring my son in physics for several weeks. My son was failing his AP physics class at the time. His grade has gone up over 40 points. He has been very patient and my son really likes him.

Thank you so much! Your son deserves the credit for his hard work and drive to learn. I'm just his coach, and proud of it.
