I started my undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Brownsville where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in computer science. My fascination with the philosophy of mathematics, turned me in the direction of a Master’s degree in pure mathematics at the aforementioned institution by the end of 2008. After that, I attended Iowa State University where I was granted a Master’s degree in applied mathematics by the end of 2012.
I began tutoring and teaching math at a learning center in Brownsville, TX in October of 2006. There, I tutored children of all ages, especially high school students. I was also an instructor for SAT and ACT test preparation. Occasionally, college students would also stop by for help with math.
On August of 2009 I was accepted to a graduate program at Iowa State University. While I was a graduate student there, I was assigned diverse teaching duties up until the time of my graduation. I have taught courses like calculus I, II, and III. I have held recitations for business calculus courses as well. I also worked for the university's Academic Success Center tutoring students in algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, linear algebra, game theory, and calculus. Additionally, I did tutoring on my own when possible. Currently, I am a Mathematics Instructor at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, TX. I currently teach Elementary, Intermediate, and College Algebra; and Calculus II.
As a father of three children, I continue learning and improving myself to be their role-model. I believe that ethical values, professionalism, and respect are the base to become a better human being, thus better at what one does. I like exercising, reading, writing, and I keep myself aware of current events in our world and in our country. I practice my rights as a citizen but also take care of my responsibilities.
I know time is valuable so I hope you can find the time to review my credentials and qualifications. If you think I would be a good fit for your tutoring needs, I would be glad to have the opportunity to serve you.
