I'm a person who has always had some interest in a variety of subjects, but excelled in particular in mathematics and the sciences from a very early age. I have studied mathematics up through linear algebra and the sciences through thermodynamics and quantum mechanics, yet I still remember tutoring sessions that I conducted on math while I was still in high school, phone calls in which I helped my younger siblings on math homework while I was in college, and even a phone call some years after I finished college in which I helped a student at my Alma mater to understand certain concepts in a math course that I had taken a few years earlier.
I believe that a key to solving most math and science problems is being able to appropriately visualize the problem. Once a student can see in his or her mind what the set up of a problem is to look like, he or she can then diagram that set up on paper. After this, the understanding of the concepts behind the problem will take over and allow for the right solution to be determined.
My approach is to teach this visualization process, which should then enable the students to accurately diagram the problem. This ability to accurately set up a problem is essential since mistakes made early on will tend to make for difficulty later on. After the set up process is complete, I then work with the students to fill remaining gaps in understanding of the concepts. I create example problems to work through with students initially, and then provide them with other problems to try on their own. I believe that this process of setting a problem up correctly from the start and then consistent practice will help a student to master difficult concepts.
I have a great understanding of the GMAT test format and know tips to relay to students to help them more efficiently attack the problems. When I took the exam, I was able to score a 750, with individual scores of 41 for the verbal section and 50 for the math. I try to keep my skills at taking the exam fresh, and I was able to score 710 on a practice exam I took in June of 2012.
Very patient and knowledgeable — Cabral has worked with my daughter who is a junior in high school now for a couple of months in pre-calculus and physics. My daughter and I are very pleased with Cabral's patience and knowledge of math and science. He comes prepared with sample questions he made up himself, and he always makes himself available for any questions she may have even after the session is completed. When beginning this ...
