Every student is different and has different needs. As a Math Teacher at a college prep school, I am able to utilize several different methods to help any student learn the material.
Currently, I am pursuing a master's in secondary education for mathematics at ASU and am teaching at AAEC Estrella Mountain High School. I do my best to stay current with the best teaching and tutoring strategies and adapt as best I can to my student's needs.
I'm not a boring tutor, and I absolutely hate going ONLY by the book. I'll use real world examples and show you unique ways to remember any steps for any problems you are facing. You will learn the process of thinking, not just solving.
I have been tutoring for over six years and have learned that one method never works for everyone. Each individual student learns different and it's my goal to help you find what works.
I am also bilingual since Spanish is my first language. I can read, speak and write in Spanish very well and that is another tool I have at my disposal if necessary for explaining any types of concepts.
Adobe Flash is one of the most powerful web application creators available. Through vector graphics, and smooth animations, sites can provide a great experience for their users. I have taken several workshops from Adobe to learn how to use the software and can share that information with others.
Adobe Illustrator is the premier tool for print design and often times web design as well. It's vector image basis makes it powerful for any platform. I have been using Illustrator for many years to create flyers, pamphlets and websites. I can easily explain simple tasks like creating text, or complicated tasks such as creating custom gradients that look realistic.
I've used Adobe Photoshop for many years for image manipulation, picture touchups and many other tasks. It is the premier tool for image editing in the professional world and I am very proficient in it.
As a Mathematics major, I understand and can very easily explain all Algebra 1 material in many different ways to make sure the student understands the material, the theory and the thinking process behind the math.
As a Mathematics major, I understand and can very easily explain all Algebra 2 material in many different ways to make sure the student understands the material, the theory and the thinking process behind the math.
The transition from Algebra 2 to Calculus if a very important part of Mathematics. Proper understanding of Calculus is key to advancement in more complex mathematics. Derivatives, integrals and limits are key in calculus and it is something I understand very well and am very able to help others understand as well.
Dreamweaver is a great tool for editing just about all web languages. It allows for integration of multiple sever languages and database access for live testing of scripts. I like to use it for it's simple "notepad" like approach to code editing and it's extensive library of code hints. I have been using this software for well over 10 years before it was even part of Adobe's line up.
As a High School Math teacher, I know what it takes to learn all the fundamentals. Basic math is the foundation necessary for later down the road. I can help any student understand and master Elementary math and prepare them for more advanced math later on in their school career.
Computers have come a long way in the last few years and understanding them is key in order to use them to their potential. I can explain and help anyone understand what their computer can do so that they can get the most out of it.
As a Mathematics major, I understand and can very easily explain all Geometry material in many different ways to make sure the student understands the material, the theory and the thinking process behind the math.
Logic the study of the principles of valid inference and correct reasoning. Formal fallacies and formal arguments are part of Logic. Being able to make logical arguments and detect fallacies in arguments.
I've been using Microsoft Excel for several years and am well versed at making spreadsheets. I can teach a student how to use functions and write complex code for tables to create dynamic content as well as create dynamic database driven spreadsheets.
Outlook is a powerful E-Mail application part of the Microsoft Office software bundle. It has many powerful features and can be used to synchronize work and personal emails and at the same time keep them separate from each other. I've used Outlook for years and have learned many of the shortcuts and features that make it powerful.

PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. I have been developing websites and databases using PHP and MySQL for several years. I can definitely help students develop their understanding of the language and make working applications on the web.
Physics is one of the sciences I enjoyed the most. It contains a lot of math theories and uses many equations to explain natural laws all around us. Understanding the math is not nearly as important as understanding the science behind it all.
As a Mathematics major, I understand and can very easily explain all Pre-Algebra material in many different ways to make sure the student understands the material, the theory and the thinking process behind the math. Pre-Algebra is a key subject in moving on to more complicated math in Algebra, Algebra 2 and Trigonometry. Understanding is key in continuing education.
As a Mathematics major, I understand and can very easily explain all Pre-Calculus material in many different ways to make sure the student understands the material, the theory and the thinking process behind the math. Pre-Calculus lays the foundations for upper math topics found in Calculus. Topics such ass derivatives, limits, infinite series, integration and many more. Understanding Pre-Calculus allows the student to have a great foundation for continuing in math.
As a Mathematics major, I understand and can very easily explain all Trigonometry material in many different ways to make sure the student understands the material, the theory and the thinking process behind the math. Understanding trigonometry and a key factor to understand the computational component of geometry. This is key in continuing education in math as well as sciences like Physics.
I have been doing Web Design for well over 10 years. I can easily explain the entire process starting from a basic graphical design of the site to the actual launch and web code troubleshooting.
