I’m an undergraduate student of Ventura College. I received my high school diploma from a school in Mexico (Prepa Uno UADY) with a focus in Physics and Mathematics. Since my graduation, I’ve traveled out of country to continue my studies, and I’ve tutored college students for a MESA program. As well, I’ve tutored high school and middle school scholars as a certified AVID tutor and elementary school scholars as a certified Para educator specialist. While I tutor a broad range of math and science subjects, I am mainly interested in Math and Physics. In my experience helping struggling students prepare for their tests, we always seem to improve in our learning skills by shearing to each other the different ideas we have about approaching problems and solving them. I strongly believe that an education without math and science is not different from not having one; science and math are the language through which objectivity speaks and make us evolve intellectually as a society. This is the idea that I try to pass to my students and to their relatives. In my free time, I enjoy running, exercising, playing soccer, videogames, watching movies, solving challenging math and physics problems, and implementing what I’ve learned from them into the way I perceive life.

What is your teaching philosophy?
The more imagination, the easier it is to solve a problem.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Have a small conversation with him about his opinion on a popular topic related to the subject in question just to know what his inclinations are toward certain ideas.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By teaching them how to logically build a richer knowledge based on their own intrinsic way of understanding the surroundings of any subject. The rest is automatic motivation.
