I am originally from Argentina where I received both my BS and PhD degrees in Physics. I spent few months in Paris, France and has lived in US for the last 10 years. I am an accomplished and experienced teacher and tutor in Physics and Mathematics with more than 10 years of experencie. I taught Physics and Mathematics both in High school and University levels, my speciality being the first courses of Physics and Mathematics in College and the AP and Honor courses in Highschool (Calculus, Algebras and Physics). I am characterized by a versatile and intense dedication to work with students with different backgrounds and understanding levels.

In my free time, I enjoy camping, hiking and collecting rocks and minerals. I am also a Cub Scout Den Leader and a Catechist. Other interests are soccer, reading books (especially history and historical novels) and chess.
