About Luis

Hi, my name is Luis. I am a recent graduate from Yale University's Master of Architecture program. I am 28 years old and I am a native Spanish speaker from Mexico. Before moving to the Northeast to attend graduate school I worked in Houston for a year tutoring middle-school and high-school students in math and Spanish with Choice Tutoring, an elite private tutoring company. I am also a magna cum laude graduate from Rice University, where I majored in civil engineering. Throughout my undergraduate studies I covered several levels of mathematics, ranging from algebra to multivariable calculus, as well as science subjects such as general chemistry, physics, and environmental science. I have a well-rounded education that balances the humanities, sciences, languages, and creative fields in art and design.

I have been living in the U.S. for over ten years now, and I recently moved to New York to work as an architect. I have spoken Spanish my whole life so I can help you with the formal aspects of grammar and writing, as well as with conversation and the more casual, daily-life expressions that will allow you to communicate with other Spanish speakers more fluidly. I am patient and I believe anyone can understand a given subject through an organized and relaxed instruction. Instead of having a standardized method of tutoring, I prefer to understand each person’s strengths and needs to engage in a more personalized form of tutoring. I enjoy spending time with students of all ages and have a sociable, easygoing personality.

If you are interested, just email me! I have a very flexible schedule and there is no minimum number of sessions required.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

As a native Spanish speaker who has studied for five years in the Unites States, I have a good understanding of the main challenges of successfully learning English. I have experience tutoring high-school students in Mexico in English subjects such as reading, writing, and grammar, and I have been able to see the positive results of a thorough instruction. I now consider myself fluent in English and I am confident I can help you improve your English skills.

Photography

As an artist I use digital photography and image manipulation software for many of my projects. I own a Nikon DSLR, which I use very often, and I also know how to use other brands, such as Canon. I took "Digital Photography" at Rice University and I have kept exploring this field on my own.

Spanish

I am a native Spanish speaker from Mexico, and I can work with students in all areas - grammar, conversation, reading, and writing.
