I'm Luca, and I tutor all levels of math!
Relax & Learn
I’ve found from working with hundreds of students that the real problems are stress and a lack of confidence (and now learning from home!), NOT a lack of ability.

I’ve always been passionate about teaching math. Even as a young student, I enjoyed helping my friends with their homework.
Education has always been a big part of my family. My parents are both professors and my mother specialized in math education of all things! From when I was very young, she would teach me math and this gave me a sort of superpower going forward.
A lot of how I teach math comes from her: Trying to instill some of the wonder and beauty of math when most see it as a dreadful chore. There is an emphasis on the multiplicity of avenues to solve each problem….and on learning through mistakes, via trial and error.
I have a very strong background in math, although I think it pales in importance compared to my ability to teach math. I scored very well on tests, 800 on the math part of the SAT for example, and graduated from strong universities like U of R and Stanford.
Later on in life, I took more of an interest in the non-rational areas of life, taking up yoga and meditation for example. I like to pass on this calmness to students. Sometimes all that is needed is a step back and a deep breath…
