About Louis

I have a strong desire to encourage and guide others toward their goals of learning. My time as an undergraduate Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering Major at Carnegie Mellon University allowed me to strengthen my depth in Math and Science as well learn about the hard work and dedication required to achieve high scores. During my studies, I balanced full semesters of challenging engineering courses while also being an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant, Tutor, and member of the Varsity Men's Soccer team. One of the most rewarding activities that I took part in was sharing my knowledge and helping others succeed. I have and will continue to take an individual approach to every student that I tutor.

My main area of focus for tutoring is Math and Sciences for improvement in school as well as standardized tests including the SAT, SAT Subject: Math, SAT Subject: Physics, GED, GRE, and GMAT. I take the time to understand how each student learns and tailor my efforts in a way that will allow him or her to succeed.

I also tutor for Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering courses taken by undergraduate students.

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. My SAT scores were: SAT Math: 780, and AP CALC AB: 5.

I have previous experience tutoring students and successfully aiding in the improvement of their Math and Science grades/scores. I have tutored both college and high school students and am well versed in all levels of Math and Science. I have not only studied these subjects in depth, but I have also tutored in these subjects for 3 years.

I am very excited to hear from you and to help you achieve your goals!

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.

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary math now for six years. I have near perfect to perfect scores on standardized math tests and continue to use math daily for my engineering work.

Mechanical Engineering

I am qualified to tutor in Mechanical Engineering because I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. While I studied there, the program was ranked 8th in the nation. I tutored students at Carnegie Mellon University in many courses for this particular curriculum as an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant and a Peer Tutor. I also practice Mechanical Engineering everyday working for an Engineering Firm where I utilize all of my knowledge of the subject.

SAT Math

SAT Math: 780

I have experience tutoring in math from ages 5-18, and I also have experience tutoring in advanced courses at the college level. The tutoring I have done at the college level was at Carnegie Mellon University, which is a top 10 engineering University.

I take the time to discover how each of my students learns, and I tailor my teaching efforts to them. For SAT Math, I challenge the students to think through the problems, while providing help with understand and decision making along the way.

Soccer

I have played Soccer for 20 years at every level along the way up to collegiate soccer. I played for 4 years on the Varsity team in high school and at Carnegie Mellon University. I have participated in numerous coaching camps both as a client and a coach and counselor. I have many years of soccer knowledge and experience under my belt.

Louis helped me through a difficult homework set for my mechanics of materials class. We went step-by-step through all facets of the homework questions I had difficultly with. I sent the homework to him beforehand and so he came prepared to answer all of my questions. This made for a very productive session. Louis made sure I learned the material by going through problem areas multiple times and
