I have worked in different fields, but I never had more satisfaction than teaching. Some of my students that use to hate math have discovered that they have a passion for numbers to the point that they want to be engineers or architects. It depends a lot who teaches it. One thing is to know, and totally different is to teach.

I have taught around 1500 students in a more diversified environment in almost 10 years. I have had to create lesson plans and developed procedure to reach successfully all kind of students. Subjects that seem to be difficult to understand I always do my best to make it simple.
Actually I am teaching Geometry and Calculus AB at Florin HS, but I have taught Summer School all these years in almost every High School in Elk Grove Unified School District as well in Twin Rivers Unified School District.
I am pretty sure that if you choose me as your tutor, you will have a different opinion of mathematics.

Algebra 1

I have taught more than 20 Algebra 1 classes in a multicultural environment. I was able to train a lot of students for Honors Geometry from all my students. In Algebra 1 we start learning about lines and slopes, a very important concept that is use even in Calculus. My students learn Algebra, they don’t just memorize it. I use a lot of examples that are use in Geometry and Algebra 2, so my students’ become ready for those subjects also.

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra 2 several times. I believe that when the students understand why they need to study some subjects, they discover that math is really easy. I teach Algebra 2 base in what is teach in Geometry (transformations for example) and show my students how they are going to use that knowledge in Pre Calculus. I have hundreds of lessons plans and I also use animation programs to explain the behaviors of the functions.

Calculus

Calculus is my favorite subject because includes the entire math that is taught in High School. It is not an a easy subject to teach, but I count with a lot of worksheets, examples and software programs as Geometer’s sketchpad to make it understandable. Since I took the responsibility to teach this class, the numbers of students passing the AP test grew more than 125%. To teach Calculus is not enough to read a book, you have to be specially an Engineer to understanding it. It helps me a lot being a Mechanical Engineer.

Geometry

Geometry is one of my favorite subjects. I must have taught this class for more than 30 times. Geometry is very important for learning Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus and it’s a MUST for Calculus. I consider myself an expert, but still I am always looking ways to improve. I have created hundred of lessons plans and actually I am writing a book called “Geometry Lab” where the students learn the properties of the different polygons and make it easier to remember their properties and formulas.

Prealgebra

This is a key class. If it's taught wrong, students will hate the rest of math. My first assignment as a teacher many years ago was to teach EL students (English Learners) where a need of good examples is needed. This class is very important to learn Algebra after. I have a lot of resources for this subject.

Precalculus

Pre Calculus is a very interesting subject. It is very important how this class is taught, because it’s the foundation for Calculus. I have taught this class several times. One of the main concepts of this subject is the Unit Circle, understanding it is a MUST for learning Calculus.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is an important concept is math. It’s a tool that can make a difference solving Geometry and Calculus. Even I have never taught a class called Trigonometry, I have mastered it through geometry, Pre Calculus and Calculus.

Great instruction, lost contact. Mr. M. proved to be patient and checked often for understanding. He helped my son to improve his Calculus understanding in just a couple of sessions. I really appreciated him allowing us to see if he was a good fit (first session) before committing to future sessions. I would still be hiring him, but we lost contact. ...
