About this pro

Luis Freire is a Rutgers University alumnus. Luis mentors composition on an academic level as a prerequisite to advanced study, career objective, or professional development.

In 2009, I began work as an English mentor at Rutgers University. I successfully guide English students through the intricacies of composition, analysis, and research courses in order to meet graduation and scholarship requirements. The students achieve higher scoring and renewed interested in a vital skill, both for college survival and for career prospects; especially in key components of management.

Throughout the years I have devoted to mentoring others, I have seen students struggle with grammar, reading, or examinations with no definite plan or recourse. This has occurred equally across all school levels; from elementary school to doctoral students. The challenges are just as varied: from children struggling with limited resources to neglected skills in career-laden adults; notwithstanding, language difficulty experienced by foreign students.

The most important aspect of mentoring is the lasting contribution to another person by supporting them on their path to self-fulfillment. Everybody faces challenges when deciding to enter a new phase in life. That decision is made tenable through the nurturing presence of a mentor.

Although personal development is important throughout life, I realized through my current training responsibilities that success is partially defined by the degree to which you help others to achieve their specific goals. The knowledge that is shared through the learning experience is invaluable and far more satisfying than compensation alone. People fail to realize that cultural differences, matters of opinion, or business practices can be alleviated through knowledge. More importantly, learning does not stop at graduation, it continues beyond a career path, well into the senior years. Education can make life transitions more enjoyable and productive through healthy and creative pursuits.
