I have many years of experience as a tutor, working at various universities, companies, and even privately. I have been working with WyzAnt nearly three years now. I provide tutoring in subjects ranging from elementary math to calculus, earth science to chemistry, grammar to essay writing, and foreign languages like French and Spanish. I specialize in tutoring math and science. I am equally as helpful in language studies. I have a great grasp of English, having spent many years as an ESL instructor. I am fluent in Spanish and conversational in French. I am being inundated by more and more requests for test prep, including SAT, ACT, GRE, and GED. I have experience with all of these and others, and I am currently working to prepare some students for at least a couple of these.
I am currently completing the last few classes necessary for a degree in Biochemistry at the University of Texas at Dallas. My wife and I got married in college, so it slowed my pace just a bit. I live, along with my wife and 6-year-old daughter, in McKinney, TX. My wife is a Tennis Pro at the local country club. I have traveled with my family quite a bit, both in the United States and abroad. I have visited nearly every state in the United States, except distant states like Hawaii and Alaska. I even lived a few years with my family in Mexico. My siblings and I had a great opportunity to see much of the world. My wife is from abroad, too - Cape Town, South Africa. We met here in Texas, but we traveled to Cape Town to get married. We lived there for some time, until shortly after our daughter was born. The sights in that part of Africa are amazing.
In my free time, I enjoy either picking up my guitar or sitting down at the piano, though I am definitely better with the guitar. Between work, school, and family, those times do not come frequently. But I enjoy what I do, especially having the satisfaction of helping others achieve success in academics. My method is geared towards understanding of the material, rather than just rote completion of homework. This is, as the story goes, like "teaching the man to fish." While it may sound cliché, this goes a long way in helping students to achieve true success in their studies.
I have many years experience in this field. I have taught at various institutions and universities, both in Mexico and the United States. I am bilingual, fluent in both English and Spanish. I have taught both, English to Spanish-speaking individuals, and Spanish to English-speaking individuals. It would be easier to simply submit my resume, if necessary. Let me know if further details are necessary.
