Although I specialize in tutoring Science and Math related courses, I've had ample experience tutoring students from all grades and for all subject areas. I've been a private tutor for 13 years, and have tutored students in Puerto Rico, the greater Boston area, and here in Los Angeles. I've previously worked as a Physics, Math, and Statistics tutor for the University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez, and for Cal State LA. I'm currently teaching Introductory Physics laboratory courses at Cal State ... [more]
I have more than 10 years of experience of tutoring for college-level Calculus courses, and also tutoring for middle school and high school Math classes. I've tutored for Single and Multivariable Calculus, Calculus for the Physical Sciences and Engineering, Calculus for the Life Sciences, and Calculus for Business majors.
I have more than 10 years of experience tutoring for Algebra and Calculus based Physics courses. I've tutored students in the Physical Sciences, Engineering, the Life Sciences, and Agricultural Sciences in Physics courses designed for their major, in addition to tutoring High School students. I'm also currently teaching Introductory Physics labs at Cal State LA. I pursued my undergraduate and graduate education in Physics and have carried out and presented research in the field.
I have 15 years of experience tutoring Precalculus to high school students, and university students of all majors. I focus on discussing the concepts along with techniques used to solve problems in a topic, and helping the student develop problem-solving skills. In addition, I try to identify and fill in possible math gaps that a student might have, and also discuss applications related to the student's field to increase motivation.
I have 5 years of experience tutoring for introductory music courses to science and engineering students at the University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez as a private tutor. I hold a minor in music from the University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez, where I took courses in music theory, music history, and advanced harmony and composition. In addition, I've taken music classes and played trombone and tuba in five different bands and orchestras throughout my middle school, high school, and college years, for a total of 8 years.
I've had experience tutoring for Math test prep in standarized tests such as the SAT, ASVAB, GRE, and the MCAT. As a test taker, I've taken the CEEB, SAT, ASVAB, and GRE, with the percentiles of most of my Math scores in the higher 90's. I can help going over both the background Math required to solve the problem and the shortcuts to answer questions quickly and effectively so that you can do well in the SAT.
I have 2 years of experience tutoring Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations to undergraduate science and engineering students while working as a Math and Physics tutor at the University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez (UPRM). I focus on helping the student develop skills in identifying the differential equation, discuss the techniques used to solve it along with the concepts related to those techniques, and also applications related to the student's field to increase motivation. I have taken undergraduate and graduate level courses in Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations and Mathematical Methods in the Sciences. I have also presented at UPRM's Applied Mathematics Seminar on topics related to Differential Equations, explaining graduate-level Physics topics to graduate and undergraduate Math students.
