    Mr. Luis Anthony Ast

    Welcome to the mobile phone (smartphone) optimized version of my website!

    I am a professional mathematics tutor known as
    The Video Math Tutor.

    This site is intended to help students from seventh grade through college. Teachers, other tutors, and parents will also find this site to be very useful. It contains a collection of high quality videos and printable notes created by me. If you are an educator, you are welcome to embed my free videos onto your own website. This is a rather large site, so please take the time to browse it. Enjoy!

    *Special Note to Teachers, Parents and Tutors: If you plan to use my videos for teaching/tutoring purposes, you need to buy the DVDs (not just watch the free videos on this site with your students). The good news is no additional school licenses are needed!

    Students: Although not required, it is appreciated if you could buy at least one DVD lesson from me.

    Your purchases allow me to dedicate more time in creating even MORE and BETTER videos for you! Thank you in advance!

    Please click on the menu button(s) above or the links below to discover all what this site has to offer.

    [Now Is The Perfect Time To Get Private Math Tutoring]

    I would like to take this moment to remind my many viewers that I not only make math videos, but I am also a professional math tutor with over 33 years tutoring experience.

    I can tutor math in English or Spanish since I am fluent in both languages.

    I am proficient in using most calculator brands and models (TI, Casio, Sharp, and HP) and can show you how to use yours and/or make recommendations on what calculator to buy.

    I can tutor students from 7th grade through college.

    I have a reputation of making math seem easy and even fun to understand using my creativity and unique sense of humor. I use quite a few visual aids (some of which I actually invented myself!) when tutoring, to keep my sessions from getting boring.

    Math Tutoring for Tests:
    • AP
    • CLEP
    • ACT
    • ASVAB

    • SAT
    • GED
    • GMAT (The Quantitative Section)
    • GRE

    My rates for private tutoring vary from $15 to $30USD per hour, depending on how many hours of tutoring you order. Mention in the “Special Instructions” that you saw this video on YouTube, and I will add an extra 20 minutes for FREE for your first hour of tutoring (what a deal!).

    I create personalized cram sessions for those taking standardized tests (ACT, SAT, etc.). The number of hours to get you ready for your test can vary, but is usually around 15 to 20 hours. I concentrate on making sure you actually KNOW the math, not just learn slick test taking tricks (which don’t do you any good, if you don’t know the math!)

    I am also available to help supplement home schooling.

    I usually use Skype for my online video tutoring, but can also use FaceTime.

    I am confident you will spend much less money with me as your tutor than you would with my competitors, and get more out of it.
