Louis J. Silva, MA Ed

Caught in the Middle Math Tutoring is the brainchild of Louis J. Silva, MA Ed.  After completing his Master's Degree in 2008, Louis wanted to provide a tutoring service that combined his professional loves: math, teaching, and technology.  Based on his teaching experience, he chose to focus his tutoring service exclusively on the middle grades.

Louis has been teaching math for 23 years, and is a 20 year resident of Elk Grove, Ca.  He has worked at T.R. Smedberg Middle School in the Elk Grove Unified School District as a 7th and 8th grade math teacher since 1999.  He also worked in the Sacramento City Unified and San Juan Unified school districts.
