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.

Perfect! I've been having difficulty with the most complicated topics in maths such as differential equations, trigonometry and linear algebra. He helped me to learn these topics, prepared for the exams and was very committed to my case.
I was truly happy with this tutor.
Vaida was a great student and very easy to teach. No problems with punctuality or payment.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
