My name is Carlos, 27 years old and I am a passionate of teaching which is not only a professional target for me but also a real vocation. This vocation can be proved by my large experience background. Since I was 17 years old I started out working as a private tutor of Modern Languages, Maths, Science... to secondary students. While I was studying my degree I kept working as tutor and I was employed for several months in two Academies of Paris, where I taught Maths, Spanish and English at university and secondary level, with brilliant results. In July 2011, I have completed my Degree in Mathematics from Valladolid University. During my lasts two years of studies, I obtained qualifications in Modern Languages (English and French) at Official College of Modern Languages of Spain. In 2012 I have been doing continuous professional development at the high school where I was employed as well as studying on line the TESOL certificate (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Furthermore, I am carrying on with my studies in Maths at Brunel University studying a PhD in partial differential equations, functional analysis and numerical methods for which I have been awarded a studentship from the School of Mathematics and Computer Science of this university.
To conclude, I consider myself as a responsible person committed to his work and objectives, sociable, willing to work with students and looking forwards to giving his best.

I believe in a personalised tutoring for each student. My first target is finding where the weak points and main difficulties are, in order to find an easier and secure way to learn with the help of a wide range of learning techniques such as summarising, highlighting.
Regarding my approach to teach Maths, I think it is extremely important to learn and understand the main mathematical concepts and definitions, followed by splitting exercises into several steps to make things easier to understand.
