Bio

Introduction:
I am an undergraduate student at Princeton University, and I recently navigated the challenging experience of preparing for and applying to college. Families, college counselors, and even tutoring companies are often vague and cryptic about how to prepare for college, the realities of applying, and the best ways to prepare for standardized exams. The reality is that there is not one single way to undergo the process, and everyone's experience is individually nuanced. I work with...

Introduction:
I am an undergraduate student at Princeton University, and I recently navigated the challenging experience of preparing for and applying to college. Families, college counselors, and even tutoring companies are often vague and cryptic about how to prepare for college, the realities of applying, and the best ways to prepare for standardized exams. The reality is that there is not one single way to undergo the process, and everyone's experience is individually nuanced. I work with my students to help them approach their classes and college preparation in the way that makes the most sense for them. High school should and can be a lot of fun, and I'm here to remove stress by offering clarity and logic to my students' pre-collegiate years.

Services:
I tutor for both regular classes and standardized tests. In both cases, I dedicate time to prepare for each individual meeting, have long-term plans for all of my students who require them, periodically compose or compile individualized practice exams at no cost, answer individual questions over email within hours, and answer my phone for quick questions at all times that I am available. Sometimes a student is struggling with the first few problems of an assignment and just needs a quick hint to get on a roll. By being available (even late at night), I ensure that my students don't waste time and stress on small issues like that. These services, of course, are included in my hourly rate.

Qualifications:
I scored 5's on the BC Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, and Computer Science AP exams, an 800 on the Math II SAT, and a 35 on the ACT.

I tutored pre-calculus for two years in high school. I completed math courses up to and including multi-variable calculus and linear algebra, but I find algebra II and pre-calculus particularly fun. I’d love to help you work through some math problems!

I am also experienced with tutoring for the English and Reading sections of the ACT and SAT. I scored a 36 on ACT English and a 780 on SAT Reading. I have also worked in my school's Writing Center as a tutor for the past year.

I'm also conversationally fluent in Spanish. While I don't speak as quickly as most native speakers do, I have taken fourteen years of Spanish classes, and my grammar is better than most who grew up learning the language.

I respond to messages quickly, and I'm often available on short notice and at late hours, so feel free to reach out with any questions! I strive to help my students gain both confidence and skill in whatever they are looking to improve!

Awesome tutor!!!

Louis has been wonderful. He is super knowledgeable and patient. My son has been working with him for several lessons to prepare for the SAT Math II exam. Louis is also now teaching my son certain subject areas that he has not yet covered in school. Louis always sends me a summary of what was covered during the lesson — so professional!!! Louis is an all around nice and capable young man and I can’t recommend him enough. Choose him!

Best of the best tutor ever!

Definitely organized and well-planned. My daughter said that she didn't know that time passed by! The lesson pace was very reasonable, and the lesson was very fun for her. Would DEFINITELY recommend!!!

Patient Instructor

It was my first lesson with Louis and he was very helpful, knowledgeable and patient. We went over factoring and Louis gave tips to make things easier. (like simplifying :-). I will schedule more lessons definitely.
