I like to teach and explicate with patience the subject that has become a challenge for the student; at the same time I will be learning the exact method to apply to this person and make him or her catch the route to learn and solve not one but several problems. The goal is to help the student improve in knowledge and in grades as well. The most important is knowledge.
The subjects that I am offering as tutor are: Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Linear Algebra, Microsoft Word and Excel,Trigonometry and Spanish.

I have 5 years of experience as Instructor and Teacher Assistant with students, ranging from freshman to senior, acquired at Florida State University. I am in the status to cover all the fields, but Structural Design, in Civil Engineering. I am not a living book so if there is a question that can't be solved at the time of the tutoring, I will resolve it in a time of 24 hours or less, and the answer will be sent by e mail if it is urgent.

Studied my Bachelor of Science at Notre Dame University and obtained Master and PhD candidacy at Florida State University. Also I am certified by the State of Florida as teacher. This certification, which may be checked, covers from K6 up to K12 and Community Colleges as well.

Fully bilingual Spanish English, I have more than 40 years of experience in the Engineering construction and design fields and also 5 years as teaching assistant, instructor or Tutor at the University level. My goal has been always to make the student feel comfortable when he is learning something that is heavy to learn but with good methods turns to be easy.

Algebra 1

The way of teaching this subject is making the student resolve several problems so he will get practice.
Obvious that before the bases of the course need to be explained and is a must that the student be proficient in this bases or it will be difficult to solve problems.
Never try to learn math or physics by heart!!

Civil Engineering

I was a teacher of Soil mechanics laboratory for 2 years, and a teacher assistant for 3 years in the following fields: Mechanics; statics and dynamics, environmental engineering, advanced soil mechanics, landfill design, landfill covers design.
The best method that I have found is to explain the full theory, then explain one or two example problems and then make the students solve another two problems that he picks.
I have completed my Master's degree at a very accredited institution, Florida State University.
I am nowadays PhD candidate in Civil Engineering.

Geometry

Geometry is an important subject which help to solve in a future different approaches, for the student who is beginning the side of Forces and resultants, also several problems about resultant forces.
Is necessary to calculate areas of diverse forms, decomposing them in geometric figures and adding them up.
Calculate Volumes as well and determine the path, the intersection and the new figure that is generated by a plane and a volume etc.
I have used it a lot in surveying, in force resultants, in vector analysis.
The best way to learn this subject is practicing a great number of problems. My method is to solve several problems with the student, after that make him solve some supervised and finally make him solve others by himself. Never Memorize,!!!!!, learn how derive formulas and relations.

GRE

Whenever you think in going to grad. School, the GRE is a must.
This is a Test that will present to the University a light index of your knowledge and will help to filter the students.
I passed this test with a PhD level, so, I think am able to teach it in an excellent way.

Linear Algebra

I have worked in this field and its applications. Also I have taken two specific courses related to this subject, knowing the basic laws of matrix algebra as they are: associative in addition and multiplication, commutative, distributive right and left, matrix addition, multiplication.
Also dealing with the different matrix types, complex, column, cofactor, diagonals, null etc. and working with tensors which are a consequence of the matrix. I learned about the row equivalent Matrices, calculating minors and cofactors, determinants of a matrix.

Microsoft Excel

Excel is a very useful tool for any person because it helps to follow a organized schedule of income-outcomes of the daily life, and also to compare graphs as well.
It may help you top solve some equations and to optimize analysis.
Also has the advantage of being very easy to handle and is as they call it user friendly.

Microsoft Word

Word processor very useful and user friendly, good for presenting reports because the person can insert graphs and pictures.
It has a very useful tool for checking grammar and spelling as well.
Also, the equations can be expressed in a neat way and very understandable.

Prealgebra

Take prealgebra lessons and your introduction and following pass to Algebra will be a kids play because you will have solid bases in elementary Mathematics.
A Good foundation makes the building to stay stable, the same thing happens with Mathematics, if your basis are weak you will be always struggling with them.
I always recommend to be "fluent" in basic math. reach total goal in advanced learning. I say that even if you are not going to make a Math. related career, learning them will organize you in your mind.

Precalculus

In precalculus, the main goal is to make a great review of the algebra and logic mathematics to introduce the student into the field of differential and integral calculus. Is necessary to be "fluent" in the solution of equations, factorization, compound interest, and know certain tricks or bypasses that help to solve accurately and fast any problem that a student gets. After any hours of practice the student will see calculus as an organized game. Practice understanding the rules and formulas, an knowing how to derive them.

Spanish

I am Hispanic latino and have taken at High School 7 courses about Spanish grammar and also Spelling.
I feel that I am able to write, read and speak as the best Spanish professor.
The Spanish is a language with a lot of grammar rules, but the principal are not as many but very basic. One of the principal objectives is to learn how to conjugate verbs and link nouns with adverbs and adjectives. Sometimes the pronouns are the most difficult to handle. I will teach you to do it perfectly.

Trigonometry

The experience that one acquires in this field is due to the fact that is one of the fields in engineering that almost everyday is dealing with angles and Geometric figures.
A person needs to know this to deal with vectors, forces on a plane and in the space, resultant forces.
When a computer program needs to be done, before this, the solution has to be obtained and then the Trigonometry will need to be used.
As a civil engineer and interpreting surveys, I have had to deal a lot with this subject.
