About Luis

Hi,

I've been a tutor/ teacher/ mentor for over 20 years. I've always had a love for teaching and helping others. My friends, family, and students have achieved better grades and success in life as a result of my work with them.

I started tutoring and teaching by helping my brother, who is 2 years older than me, with high school math while I was still in junior high school. I also helped my cousins, my age and younger, with math and any other subject they needed help with.

The head of the math department in high school noticed my ability to teach and help others and recruited me to be an after school math tutor. When my high school math teachers were absent, substitute teachers would allow me to review the homework assignments with my peers and show examples on the board of problems other students had questions on.

Upon graduating from high school, I attended college and became a math and computer tutor. I worked during my breaks between classes and after school and helped countless students improve their skills and pass their classes.

My primary expertise is in high school math, Spanish, GED and NYS Regents exam preparation. I also tutor, teach, and mentor in chess, resume and cover letter writing, and many other subjects. My teaching style involves keeping my students challenged while building their confidence in themselves. Homework assignments I leave behind ensure the material covered is not just understood, but learned.

My love for teaching causes me to often ask for feedback. The more I improve, the faster and more efficiently you'll learn. I welcome your input and would never charge a student or parent if they are not completely satisfied with my tutoring.

I'm happy to travel to you or meet you at a mutually convenient location. From personal experience, if you are in a comfortable environment and there are no distractions around, you are more likely to learn and retain information. Based on that, I'm happy to be as accommodating as possible to ensure your success.

I try to be as flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup sessions.

I'm about making what may seem difficult, understandable and, ideally, easy for you, and my motto is "Your success is my happiness!" Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to helping you reach and exceed your potential!

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.

Career Development

I was Headhunter/ Recruiter/ Talent Acquisition Specialist with Eden Staffing Services, Inc. and RJL Resources, Inc. in Manhattan, one of the toughest job markets in the US, for 7 years. During that time I put together and revised resumes, prepared candidates for interviews, gave candidates career advice, and landed 80%+ of the candidates I worked with their ideal positions. I continue to do Career Development privately and continue to help countless individuals find positions, even in our difficult economy.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to teach Elementary K-6th grade students based on my years of experience. I currently tutor 3 students whose ages are 5, 5, and 8 at a learning center and I am one of the home-school teachers for another 8 year old in subjects including Math, English, History, Science, and Spanish. I started with one student and based on how well the student is doing and how happy their parents are, 3 parents approached me about their children. My students have improved their grades from 2 to 4 or 5 according to the new Core Standards. 4 and 5 mean the student has an exemplary knowledge and understanding of the material. My teaching methods ensure my students learn the material, not memorize it, and have the ability to apply it.

Spanish

I have been a Spanish Public Lecturer and Orator for approximately 23 years. While being a lecturer and orator, I taught and trained others, ranging from ages 8 to 53, to speak, read, and write Spanish fluently. As their proficiency increased, so did their comfort level with it. Their confidence allowed them the ability to speak Spanish and practice it with others, further embedding what they learned into long term memory.

Great!!

Luis C is great!! He is very patient with my son, Nicolas. Nicolas had a hatred of math and I can say since Luis starting tutoring him, this has changed. He is more confident and does his math homework on his own without asking for help. Luis is very easy to reach by phone or email. He responded in a timely manner. He keeps me updated with what Nicolas has to do and practice. He is great with m
