For the last 7 years, I have been tutoring math for high school, college, and adult students. My extreme patience and understanding provides a comfortable learning environment for all individuals I work with. I have a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering so I am comfortable tutoring most any type of math, from basic to advanced.

Calculus,

Calculus

I am confident tutoring calculus to any student who shows interest in this subject. During my 34 year career at Detroit Edison, I used my knowledge of calculus to perform thermal-hydraulic calculations in order to demonstrate the safe operation of the Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant. This working experience allowed me to bridge the gap between theory and application of mathematics (specifically calculus and differential equations). Therefore, I bring the added benefit of understanding how calculus is actually used to solve real world problems. I've spent many years sharing this experience with a variety of engineers in the nuclear industry. I have also tutored calculus to a number of high school and college students. If you need help understanding calculus, please consider me as a possible tutor. I’m sure you would have a positive learning experience and develop an appreciation for this powerful and beautiful subject.

Awesome Tutor!

Lou and I went over precalculus topics. The session went very well. I will be continuing to see Lou on a regular basis. He's a super nice guy!!!!! Well worth the time and money!

David, 8 lessons with Lou

Patient and teaches well.

Mr. Lou is a very able tutor, he is patient and demonstrates concepts well. Reviews and teaches Algebra II well!

Gerald, 4 lessons with Lou

Excellent tutor

Lou is an excellent tutor. I'm so glad I found him. My daughter understands algebra 2 a lot better with only 1 session. I highly recommend him, he is very easy to talk to and very prompt with emails and phone calls. He met with us immediately after talking to him.
