"Louis. I am originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico but grew up in South Florida before coming to Missouri for college. In college I studied architecture, but my education was in much more than math and art. Many people are surprised to hear the many different fields an architectural education encompasses, and in order to succeed in school I had to master skills from writing to history! I first started tutoring in high school, helping my younger classmates out with math and eventually with SAT/ACT prep."

" My professional experiences range from working for a Fortune 150 electronics company to writing the food and wine column for a fashion and lifestyle magazine. I believe that as human beings, we are limitless in our capacity for development and owe it to ourselves to expand that potential to all areas of knowledge and experience. In short, I believe in the modern-day revival of the Renaissance man. When it comes to teaching and tutoring, I love that light bulb moment we get when something finally starts to make sense. I'm addicted to it." ...

"While this image has been sadly true for many students, my own experience of learning math as I grew up was quite the opposite, and it is that opposite experience which inspired me to go into education. In middle and high school, I was fortunate enough to have educators who taught math not as a regimen of drills and memorization, but as a process of thinking logically. They taught not exclusively through by-the-book lectures, but through anecdotes and idiosyncratic metaphors which may have amused my classmates and I, but also aided our memories and our reasoning skills. Through high school and college, even while completing two unrelated ...
