Methodology

Hello. I am Luis and I am a tutor with Superprof. I have taught and tutored students from the Elementary School, Middle School, Junior High School, and High School levels for twenty nine years. During this time, I taught and prepared students from other countries as well for the TOEFL, IELTS, and TOEIC exams. I also offer tutoring to students who are interested in taking English as a second language. In my lessons. I focus on the specific problem areas that the individual student faces. I laser in on those weak areas and clear up any confusion. All this is done with patience, with the student feeling free to ask as many questions as he/she can. At the end of each lesson, I go over all the skills covered and learned.

Background

I have taught and tutored high school students both native speakers and non-native speakers for twenty eight years here in Southern California. I have taught literally over a thousand students, most of whom were successful in passing the SAT, TOEFL, IELTS, and TOEIC exams and proceeded on to college and university.
