Rochester Math Tutor
Hi! My name is Luca.
I've been tutoring Math for 10 years now, and I've tutored over 100 students and have done well on standardized tests like 800 Math SAT and 760 GMAT.
My favorite subject to teach is any kind of High School math. I do best with students who have trouble learning from the teacher in class and feel they have fallen behind. I can help them to fill in some of the missing concepts and to rebuild their confidence in their own math abilities.
All my tutoring is online and I charge $30/hour. You can check out my website at rocmathtutor dot com.
