I have experience as a long term substitute teacher for Tucson Unified School District in Tucson, Arizona for 11 years in all subjects. I have taught in most of the middle and high schools in Tucson. Most recently I taught special education math at Catalina High School 2014-2015 school year. I taught high school math and Spanish at Canyon Rose Academy 2015-2016 for 1 1/2 years.

I am able to establish an excellent rapport with students so that you feel comfortable learning in a one to one tutoring atmosphere.

I have taught Elementary and Special Education Math, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and some Pre Calculus. I am currently studying to take the Arizona Secondary Highly Qualified Test for teachers. My favorite subjects are Algebra and Geometry.

I have passed the 16 unit level of Spanish at the University of Arizona and have taken literature courses in Spanish. I was lucky to grow up speaking Spanish at home. I took four years of Spanish at Salpointe Catholic High School.

My endeavor is to prepare students become proficient in Mathematics and Spanish so that you can become qualified to graduate from High School and be able to excel at the University level. Math can be intimidating, but I can make your learning experience fun and less cumbersome, so that you can become enthusiastic about learning!

I still have my Macmillan Handbook of English from my grade school years. I wrote for the High School Newspaper. After reading many a book and writing endless reports, I have reached a high level of expertise in the art of writing and using grammar. I taught many an English class in Tucson, Arizona after graduating in Liberal Arts from the U of A.

I have 11 years experience as a teacher for Tucson Unified School District teaching all subjects. My last year and half I taught Special Education Math and Guitar/Band at Catalina Magnet High School. I also taught High School Math and Spanish at Canyon Rose Academy in Tucson for a year and a half. Many students have problems with not only the multiplication and division of numbers, but with the understanding of integers on the number line. For example, what is the difference between (-9)+ (-10) and -9-(-10). Does your student understand the order of operations? These two subjects are essential building blocks in developing important math skills. I would be able to determine what level in math your student is at and how and where to proceed.

Having taken Liberal Arts, I usually read one book per week for each subject. This would include The American Novel, Social History, Social Psychology and American Authors. Literature, Language and the Social Sciences required extensive reading for the General Studies Major. I also took a course in speed reading.
Vocabulary

Vocabulary

I have been exposed to higher levels of vocabulary having read much literature in high school and college. Reading three or four books per week while in Liberal Arts exposes you to a wide range of vocabulary. I scored 100% in Wyzant's vocabulary test. I suggest everyone read Don Quixote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra to stimulate and expand the vocabulary cells of your brain.

He is a math teacher and that is what matters most to me. VERY patient with my high schooler.

They work on the current Algebra topic. My son is grasping it and taking to class. My son is very Happy with Mr. Mario!! Sometimes our schedules are difficult but whenever we can book Mr. Mario we will.

Allison, 1 lesson with Mario

Patient and Detailed

Mario is very patient. He provides clear instruction. He gives you extra info to work on after the lesson ends. He’s a good tutor. You will enjoy the lesson. He figures out the common errors people make with spanish and works you through them.

Sandra, 4 lessons with Mario

First lesson: we jumped right in!

I booked lessons for my boyfriend, Jason, with Mario to study up for our trip to Costa Rica later this year. I was in earshot of the lesson and I lap know Jason was very excited after the lesson to be speaking Spanish already, in the first hour of tutoring. Mario jumped right into asking questions and speaking in Spanish which “forced” Jason to start practicing and it’s just what he needed. In addition, Mario customized the lesson to be sure Jason learned relevant travel topics like “I’m from America” and “I am looking for my baggage.” Great tutor! Highly recommend.

Christina, 4 lessons with Mario

Great teacher!

Mario is a very good teacher and made sure I understood everything before moving on. Great teaching, overall. Definitely recommend.

Renee, 2 lessons with Mario

Great Tutor

Mario has been teaching my daughter Spanish. She needs to pass it in order to get into the teaching program. He has been a great tutor for her although they are states apart, he finds room in his schedule to accommodate my daughter's college schedule. He is helping her pass Spanish and keep her GPA up. She throughly enjoys learning with him. He goes up and above by providing additional worksheets for her to practice when they are not meeting. I am very thankful I found him. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
