"...Once the student understands the thought processes, math becomes not only easy, but enjoyable. As any teacher would tell you, you don’t really learn a subject well until you have to teach it. I often use this idea in my tutoring sessions by having my students explain to me how to solve a given problem, thus ensuring their full understanding of the mathematical principles. In addition to doing math, I enjoy running, basketball, and soccer..."

My great grandparents had come to Chile from Germany; thus both my father and grandmother used to talk to me in German when I was growing up, in addition to my native language, Spanish.

"... I specialize in all Math and Science disciplines (including AP level), as well as all sections of SAT, ACT, and SSAT/ISEE/HSPT preparation. I believe strongly in the "Socratic Method," using questions to help students develop their knowledge rather than just spoon-feeding the information.
