About Carlos

My name is Carlos and I'm a rising senior at Virginia Tech. I have been tutoring for 6 years this coming August with experience ranging from elementary mathematics including concept building, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and 2, as well as Trigonometry and Calculus. Additionally, I've tutored young students from ages 7 to 11 in reading and writing, and students from 12 to 18 in Spanish. I naturally have an inclination towards teaching math, however I love language, which is why I also practice tutoring reading and writing in both English and Spanish (for both native speakers and non-native speakers). I'm enthusiastic and love to engage in students' learning process because seeing a student finally click with a concept is what drives my passion for tutoring.

Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus 1 and 2 (AB and BC), Differential Equations, Statics, Mechanics of Deformable Bodies, Spanish 1, Spanish 2, Spanish 3, Spanish 4 (Composition), Spanish 5 (AP/College level).

What matters when it comes to learning something new is the reason why. Knowing a certain phenomenon happens in the math world will make the process much easier. I always encourage my students to ask as many questions as possible and stop me when they cannot grasp something. I am incredibly patient and truly am willing to help my students understand what they need to know. I don't encourage 100 problems, rather I encourage learning a step-by-step method that will guarantee effective results. This means my students should be able to face problems and identify how to move around them.
