Hello, my name is Jose Perez and I am a recently graduated college student from Yale University who studied Electrical Engineering. The curriculum was extremely rigorous, so I found myself frequently going to tutors to ask for help. I always felt so embarrassed or nervous about what to ask but thankfully, the tutors were understanding, knowledgeable, and friendly. I always left reassured and with more confidence in myself and my work.

I wanted to have that same impact on other students, so I started working during the summers in math and science educational programs that allowed me to teach in elementary through high schools. I loved the experiences and I wanted to keep doing teaching and tutoring.

I have since then worked in multiple tutoring centers and have experience working with students of various personal and academic backgrounds. I tutor all levels of mathematics up to Calculus, SAT Math, and AP math classes and also have experience tutoring Spanish grammar. I grew up in a native speaking household and took multiple Spanish grammar and conversation courses during my undergraduate education.

I am friendly and easy to work with and I try to be as accommodating as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you have. I respond to messages as quickly as possible. Thank you!

Great Tutor! — Jose was very patient and helpful in tutoring my son in Geometry. He had a calm approach and finds ways to communicate by using his own experiences. He has good command of the subject and did a good job of establishing where our son's level is relative to where he needs to be performing. He's amendable to customizing the degree of tutoring and we will be calling him again. ...
