About Luis

I love teaching, especially math! I find that there is a beauty in patterns and the nature of numbers. Too often I have seen and heard about teachers who make math boring, confusing, and ultimately do not support their students. That is not what I am about. I want to show you how math can be extremely important and how you can do some interesting things with math. The way I teach is to meet my students where they are at academically, solidify the foundations, and build up and be prepared for the next level.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Latin American Studies and a Masters in Teaching, Elementary Education, from the University of Chicago. I am endorsed in teaching middle school math, but the vast majority of my experiences revolve around teaching mathematics to middle school students, high school students, as well as adult learners. Most of the subject matter has been algebra and statistics focused. I also have taught trigonometry and introduction to calculus. In college, I took math courses that revolved around statistical analysis, calculus, and proofs. In graduate school, my math courses revolved around number theory, fundamental axioms of mathematics, and Euclidean geometry.

Feel free to contact me and schedule a session. I am flexible and I would be happy to help!
