High School/College Math Tutor
I'm Luis! I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics with a teaching certificate from the University of Texas at San Antonio. As you can tell, math is a subject I love learning about because you think you know everything about a particular concept and then you'll realize that its only the foundation of something greater.

I'm Luis! I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics with a teaching certificate from the University of Texas at San Antonio. As you can tell, math is a subject I love learning about because you think you know everything about a particular concept and then you'll realize that its only the foundation of something greater. Ironically, having the foundation is a challenge for some students. The student might believe that he/she doesn't understand anything about the concept. I believe every student is capable of understanding any concept so I do my best introducing a concept in a questionnaire way, then explicitly teach the material. Afterwards, letting the student practice on his/her own to build confidence.
For a semester, I was a geometry student teacher at the high school I graduated from. I took over most of the responsibilities from cooperating teacher. This included: lesson planning, grading, etc. My cooperating teacher was only able to conduct tutoring sessions once a week so I took it upon myself to conduct more tutoring sessions after school Tuesday through Friday for any math student.
I want to help students feel confident in their math capabilities. Therefore, any resources or suggestions from students or parents are welcomed. I am easy to reach and will provide fast responses. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or schedule a session.
Skilled at explaining the material
He connected with me--he knew what I needed to learn and explained it clearly. We went over my review packet for the Geometry exam and now I'm comfortable with the material and am ready for the exam.Frederick, 7 lessons with Luis
Very patient tutor. He has the knowledge and presents it in a very clear way. Kind and helpful. I highly recommend. I am an adult and I have always struggled with math. Luis makes the process fun… I enjoy my sessions with him.Victor, 9 lessons with Luis
Luis is a wonderful and patient tutor. He explains the problems in a way my daughter understands. My daughter is finally beginning to enjoy Algebra. And the best news is...she is passing!Evelyn, 8 lessons with Luis
Algebra I Test
Luis is not only helping my daughter understand solving the different equations but he is helping her gain the confidence she needs.Evelyn, 8 lessons with Luis
Thanks, Luis! He was on time and ready to start with our 16 year old. She failed Algebra last semester so we are looking for a new approach besides the public school options. We will definitely schedule with him again!Jeff, 1 lesson with Luis
Luis has done a great job making the material understandable to my son. He even went out of his way to provide him practice worksheets. He arrived early and got alot accomplished over the course of an hour.Sandra, 1 lesson with Luis
Luis always goes out of his way to be the best tutor I've ever had. He does more than he has to and often provides me with extra pages of tips and test-taking suggestions. He's always on time and reliable. Not only is he knowledgeable, but he's kind and patient and supportive. He never makes me feel dumb. I'd recommend him 100%!Isabella, 18 lessons with Luis
He is a great guy very respectful and he also came to the place I asked to on time and we went the the whole lesson at a good time and he taught me how to understand themMegan, 1 lesson with Luis
I use Luis for College Algebra with , he very understandable and very patient. He has helped with Logarithm and Exponential problems such as expanding and simplifying in writtem form. He has also helped me with graphing functions specifically finding points and plotting them. I like Luis because he works out problems for you right away and doesn't try to test you like other tutors, which I don't need because thats what my actual University class if for. I enjoy Wyzant app also because it super easy to send attachments and pictures of my work to my tutor. Will continue to use this service.Christine, 2 lessons with Luis
