About Louis

I currently work at a Middle School in McKinney ISD as an Honors Algebra and 8th Grade Math teacher. I taught high school for two years and now middle school for five years. Every year, I strive for a more conceptual approach to teaching math. Too many students are given the impression by teachers that math is heavy on memorizing facts, equations, steps, and tricks. Nothing could be further from the truth. I concentrate on deep understanding - which lasts far beyond the next test.

Before teaching, I worked as a structural engineer. I believe it helps to give me the unique combination of a technical background, communication skills, and a passion for teaching and inspiring.

I look forward to working with you!

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.

Algebra 2

I am a fully certified math teacher and have been teaching for seven years, including Algebra 2. I currently work at a Middle School in McKinney ISD as a 7th and 8th Grade Math teacher. I taught high school for two years and now middle school for five years. Before teaching, I worked as a structural engineer.

AutoCAD

I began using AutoCAD in 2000. I entered the civil engineering program at Texas Tech and became very skillful at using the program, as it was required in many courses. My graphic design course in college specifically taught us AutoCAD. After college, I entered the structural engineering field and continued my use of the program. Overall, I know AutoCAD very well through the 2010 version.

Civil Engineering

I received a degree in Civil Engineering from Texas Tech University in 2005. Since then I have worked in the structural engineering field for over 4 years. At two companies I designed window framing systems and the other was a comprehensive structural firm which designed buildings and site structures.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Microsoft Outlook for 6 years. Each company I have worked for used Outlook. At one company in particular I was in charge of sending out monthly newsletters with tips on how to become more efficient through the use of Microsoft Outlook.
