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.

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. My name is Carlos and I'm a rising senior at Virginia Tech.

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.
I am qualified in teaching calculus both at the high school and university level.
I am qualified in tutoring various math levels. Of them, I am also specifically qualified in tutoring elementary mathematics.
I am adept at tutoring high school students in the SAT.
I am adept in all conjugations of Spanish, Spanish vocabulary, and Spanish composition. I am a native speaker in Spanish and have taken five years of Spanish courses. Additionally, I have studied abroad in Bolivia for one year, thus mastering my Spanish speaking skills.
