University Lecturer, LSE-grad, CFA, CQF Investment professional with degree in Economics and Msc In Finance offering all-levels maths lessons in London and online

Methodology

I consider the most important thing of teaching is to link theory and real world applications. I was a victim of theory-only teachers, especially in maths, and my mission is to allow the student to master theory while teaching him to solve real world problems.

My teaching methodology is based on key steps:
1) Intuitive explanation of the math topic
2) Real life applications.
3) Theory foundations: principles and demonstrations.
4) Examples related to these formulas.
5) Optional: more complex examples using coding (R and Python)

Introduction of coding at point 5) is optional for the student but I think it helps to introduce the student to the future demands of the job market.
I have a significant database of examples and materials that I use on these lessons.

I have taken a few classes with Carlos about machine learning topics. The topics were complex, yet Carlos was able to explain them in a clear and intuitive manner, also providing practical examples and motivations behind the theory. Carlos is a good communicator, knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend!

M
Michael

Carlos is a very educated and competent tutor.
He helped me to understand a particular topic.

E
Ershad

Carlos possesses tremendous insight on all subjects. His knowledge and wisdom has helped me a lot in preparing for my university work from economics to financial management. His teaching goes beyond the classroom, he is very professional, enlightening, insightful and adaptable, and
his past experience in the world of finance speaks for itself. Carlos has been a pleasure to work with.

R
Robert

I would highly recommend Carlos. He has worked with me for a couple of months and has helped me immensely across a variety of subjects including accounting, corporate finance and valuation.

C
Clelia

Carlos is an excellent tutor, he really helped me understanding econometrics which I never studied before. Our classes were really efficient and insightful, I would definitely recommend him as a tutor.

J
Josh

I engaged Carlos for assistance with my study (quantitative finance, FX trading practise and theory) and found him to have an effortless command of the material. He takes the time to prepare before your session with any questions or specific material you may have, and also takes the time to ensure you have a good foundation in the rationales underpinning the theories before proceeding. Do recommend.

M
Manny

Carlos has helped me enjoy Quant Finance by passing on his passion of the subject to me. He always comes up with real life examples and is very knowledgeable on all sub topics. Carlos is always on time to lessons and explains topics thoroughly. His help has been greatly appreciated without which I would have not have had a chance to pass my exams.

E
Emad

I had the pleasure to work with Carlos recently. I enlisted his help to go over key mathematical concepts used within Finance which would have taken me longer to grasp by myself.

I would highly recommend anyone studying Finance at a post-grad level to contact Carlos. He was able to explain complex concepts with ease.

V
Vaida

Carlos helped me immensely through the preparation for my CFA exams, he is very professional and knowledable. I liked the way he applied the examples from every day life to explain the subject. He definitely goes an extra mile for his students.

A
Adam

I reached out to Carlos on the Superprof website to get help on a university M&A project (DCF, Comps, Options Valuation, Accounting) and receive career advice (CV, Cover Letter, Applications) for an Investment Banking role. Within a couple days we met for out first lesson and kept in touch on a weekly basis.

Carlos is very passionate about Finance, extremely knowledgeable and is able to communicate answers to my questions in a manner that is easy to understand. He was attentive, has positive energy and never cancelled a lesson throughout our meetings.

I was able to achieve exactly what I set out to do - delivering a solid piece of M&A work and being in a position to apply for Investment Banking roles. Carlos exceeded my expectations, especially as I have come out of this project with the knowledge to tackle real life technical questions that will help me in career. I am very thankful to Carlos, and I would definitely recommend him to Superprof members. I hope we get a chance to work again.

Interview with Carlos

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Carlos — During my early years at the university I started helping high school students with science subjects. It helped me with the extra money and I realized teaching was something I enjoyed tremendously.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Carlos — I focus only on the subjects where I have both teaching and practitioner experience such as corporate finance, maths, investment analysis, machine learning, data science and econometrics. I love all the subjects I teach and despite being good at other science subjects like physics or chemistry, I don't teach them as I think the student can benefit more from the subjects where I have both teaching and practitioner experience.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Carlos — I had a couple of teachers that were very motivated and really invested in the learning experience of the experience. Nevertheless, I learn more from bad teachers as it really helped me to understand how not to manage students and keep them motivated.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Carlos — Patience is the most important. Other good qualities such as subject mastery and speaking skills are also very important, yet these two without patience and understanding of the student's key learning challenges are not going to help much.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Carlos — There was a mother that approached me to teach his son how to trade stocks. Although she was offering an excellent rate per hour, I declined the offer. The kid was only 9 years old and I told the mother that he needs first to learn about school basic subjects (maths, science, history, etc) and enjoy the playground with other kids before learning about investing or stocks. She didn't like my answer.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Carlos — Mostly to teach students with clear gaps in knowledge. For instance, an student lacking in mathematics building blocks (e.g. derivatives) willing to learn an advance topic on machine learning or econometrics for investments. The teacher needs firstly to ensure the basic mathematical skill-set is acquired by the student in order to progress to solve the original problem.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Carlos — I love the process of conveying knowledge about a subject I have theoretical and practitioner experience. Best yet, I love the times when I learn something new about a subject I taught many times in the past as the more you teach a topic, the more you understand it. To teach is to never stop learning.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?
Carlos — I do believe my positive reviews are a reflection of my passion for teaching, patience, flexibility and focus on subjects where I have developed mastery at a scholar and practitioner level, which makes the whole learning experience great for an student looking for extra help.
