About Jose

I got my undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2009. I graduated with a Master's degree from the same university in Secondary Education to get certification to teach. I have been certified in three different states, Nevada, New Mexico, and Arizona and taught in all three as well. I tutored at the university while getting both degrees for multiple subjects in very diversified tutoring formats.

I did my student teaching in Nevada for about 6 months. After that I got a job as a mathematics teacher at a charter school in New Mexico where I taught for a year. I then moved to Arizona where I have been teaching for two years. This year I quit my full time teaching position to pursue entrepreneurial endeavors.

The most qualifying experience I have for mathematical tutoring is working with high school students of all levels. While teaching in public schools I had the opportunity to explain one concept multiple ways every class period. Also mathematics does not come naturally to me so I use the struggles I have in understanding the material as reference points for potential pitfalls students may have.
