About Luiz

Originally from Brazil, I came to the USA to work as a scientist in 2005, and Boston has been my home since then. Here, I have had the amazing experience of working at renowned institutions such as MIT and UMass. Since my PhD program, I have routinely trained students–from high school summer programs to full-time undergraduate and graduate courses.

My two decades working as a scientist include mentoring young students in basic-to-applied biology, chemistry, biophysics and much more. In the past two years, I have also taught Portuguese to adults. Helping them to learn, to grow, to become independent and confident, and to succeed in their endeavors, has become the most personally gratifying aspect of my career.

I believe that attentive listening and respect for individuality is crucial for achieving a successful mentor/student relationship. Therefore, my mentoring/teaching philosophy involves a friendly, compassionate approach to better understand the student's reality, identify his or her struggles and goals, establish a personal connection–a “language” we both will understand–and ultimately work together to tackle specific issues and topics.

Please contact me to discuss how we can work together to ensure your success!
