Algebra 1
Algebra 1, for most students, is the first year of math in high school. The importance of Algebra 1 is due to the facts that there are many physical quantities in your daily life that we do not know. With Algebra 1 you can find a mathematical relations to how discover the unknown, which we usually represent by some algebraic quantity like 'x', or 'y' or some other letter, according with the information that you can get.
As graduated in Physics at Havana University we were trained to solve...

Algebra 2
Algebra II is geared to solving mathematical problems more focused on equations and inequalities, algebraically or graphically for the high school.
These topics were also covered as a graduated on Physics at the Havana University, by the two semesters of Linear Algebra 1 and 2
Calculus
For this a branch of mathematics focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and
infinite series, with two major branches - differential and integral calculus. As a graduated on Physics at the Havana University, we receive four semesters of Mathematical Analysis in the firs two years of studies. Therefore we have a great skills in any topics of Calculus.
Microsoft Excel
As a former scientific researcher, in Cuba, we used Excel to process and analyse many data. These office package, has very valuable tools to make statistical analysis and get graphics results in a very easy way.
Geometry
Geometry is all about shapes and their properties. This is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. Some times you need some skills in elementary algebra to work with this subject.
Due to my knowledge on Math, as a Physicist, I can help with it.
Microsoft Word
As a former scientific researcher, in Cuba, we used Microsoft Word to edit text for scientific communications. These office package, has very valuable tools to edit equations, graphics and tables, in a very easy way.
Physics
I'm graduated on Physics at the Havana University, we receive a great preparations on General Physics (Mechanics, Molecular Physics, Electromanetism, Optics), Electrodynamics, Theoretical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Solid State Physics, Non Linear Optics. Besides I work during 18 years at the Institute of Geophysics and Astronomy, where I get a PhD in Geophysics, therefore I have knowledge of Seismology, Geology, and Space Geophysics as my main topic of research.

Prealgebra
Prealgebra by its very name is self explanatory. It equips the student with the bacis tools, necessary to handle algebra and calculus.
Here the student, work with and solve equations involving the most basics operations of addition and subtraction. As such they learn the natural number system, integers, fractions, decimals, negative numbers, factorization of natural numbers, simple roots and powers, and the associative and distributive properties of addition / subtraction. Prealgebra could...

Trigonometry
Trigonometry is the science of the mathematical relations in triangles, the mathematical relations among the sides and angles in a geometric figure. Here the students gets mathematical skills, that will be necesary to work in the world of Physics and Engineers.
Astronomy
I receive Astronomy during a course for my last year at High School, but as a graduated on Physics at the Havana University, we receive a lots of topics in Astronomy in the semester course of "Modern Physics", like Stellar Evolution, Astrophysics of the Black Holes, Nuclear Reactions and many others. Besides I worked during 18 years, in the Institute of Geophysics and Astronomy, where I learn Celestial Mechanics, Techniques of the Observational Astronomy, Solar Physics and Radioastronomy.
Statistics
Statistics is very important branch of the mathematical sciences pertaining to the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of data with a wide rank of application and uses, in the economy and any experimental science. It deals with all aspects of this, including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments. But some times due to its empirical roots and its focus on applications, statistics is usually considered a distinct mathematical science...

SAT Math
The SAT standardized test is really a critical thinking test, using math as the basis for testing your thinking.
It pre-supposes that you have been exposed to a certain body of material: Arithmetic-type material, Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II, to develop mathematical skills, like algebraic thinking and logical reasoning. It's not about working long and hard, but really about being alert and working smart.
Due to my knowledge on Math, as a Physicist, I can help with it.
Physical Science
I'm graduated on Physics at the Havana University, we receive a great preparations on Thermodynamics, Solid State Physics, General Physics (Mechanics, Molecular Physics, Electromanetism, Optics), Quantum Mechanics, Non Linear Optics. Besides I work during 18 years at the Institute of Geophysics and Astronomy, where I get a PhD in Geophysics, therefore I have knowledge of Seismology, Geology, and Space Geophysics as my main topic of research.
ACT Math
The ACT math section comprises 60 questions to be done within 1-hour. The key point is the knowing and skills in pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and basic trigonometry, and doing some critical thinking and logical reasoning, to use all the information that you are given, even including some times the information in the answer choices.
Due to my knowledge on Math, as a Physicist, I can help with it.
Differential Equations
As a graduate of physics, at the Faculty of Physics, at the Havana University, Cuba, we take one semester course on Differential Equations (the official text book was "Differential equations and the calculus of variations" by Lev Elsgolts), including two others semesters of "Mathematical Methods of the Physics" [MMP](MMP-1 - Complex Variable and Analytical Functions, using the official text book "Theory of Analytical Functions" by A. I. Markushevich, for MMP-2 - Partial Derivative Equation using...

Martial Arts
I've trained since I was very young (12 years old) in the Karate style Joshin-Mon, that was introduced in Cuba by the 5 grade master Hoshu Ikeda in 1969. Regularly during my studies at the secondary and at high school, I received classes of self defense.
Later at the University as part of the physical preparation I continued the training in karate obtaining the brown belt. After the graduation in the University in 1994 I start the training in the martial art of Taekowndo, and in 1996 after...

C
As part of my studies for the PhD of Space Geophysics I take several courses of programming, in the case of the C language, these course were taken in the Faculty of Physics, at the Havana University, in Cuba where I receive a certification of the course with the best qualifications. I can send a copy of these certification upon request.
Linear Algebra
As a graduate of physics, at the Faculty of Physics, at the Havana University, Cuba, we take two semesters of "Linear Algebra" the Official Text book was "Linear Algebra and Some Applications" by Golovina, and one semester of "Analytic Geometry" with the book "Calculus and Analytic Geometry" by George B. Thomas.
MATLAB
As part of my studies for the PhD of Space Geophysics I take several courses of programing, in the case of the MatLab language, these course were taken in the Nacional Centre for Scientific Research, in Havana Cuba where I receive a certification of the course with the best qualifications. Later in the Institute of Geophysics and Astronomy, as part of scientific research, our team develop a program in MatLab to interpolate by Spherical Harmonics, the values of several ionospheric parameter according...
