My name is Haraldo and I am a student at Mesa Community College from which I plan to transfer to Arizona State University for Mechanical Engineering. I have tutored classmates in calculus courses which require a strong understanding of algebra and trigonometry as a foundation. I have also worked for public schools where I focused on helping students in their prealgebra, algebra, and precalculus courses.

My name is Haraldo and I am a student at Mesa Community College from which I plan to transfer to Arizona State University for Mechanical Engineering. I have tutored classmates in calculus courses which require a strong understanding of algebra and trigonometry as a foundation. I have also worked for public schools where I focused on helping students in their prealgebra, algebra, and precalculus courses.
I want to help others learn math because I feel it is a subject that can discourage many from achieving their academic or career goals. I believe that with an honest effort, math can be well understood by the common student. I enjoy tutoring because I am able to share my insight and understanding of the material to help others where they may be struggling. I also gain the opportunity to experience the different perspectives of the material that a student can offer which leads me to a broader understanding.
My approach to tutoring is to assume that the student is able to execute the mechanics required in problem solving (e.g. solving for variables, basic factoring, deriving) but is having trouble understanding the importance and purpose of these problem solving tools. I find understanding the processes to be just as important as finding a correct answer, however I am happy to show students how to work to a solution as well. I have the student explain what they do understand, and then I fill in the gaps where they need them.
I am looking to expand my tutoring experience with more individual and small group tutoring so feel free to contact me for your math tutoring needs. I will do my best to respond within the same day and will gladly answer any questions you may have for me.
