About Carlos

I have had a passion for helping students in need ever since my years in high school. This makes this a great opportunity for me. In the past, I have had great success in assisting kids and reinforcing the material taught to them. I hope to continue this trend with this program.

My strong suit definitely has to be anything math. I am proficient in any math subject taught in high school up to multivariable calculus. Even though my most recent subjects learned is calculus, this does not mean I cannot perform anything from geometry to advanced algebra. I am also adept at any of the other STEM related subjects.

My education started here in Bakersfield. While in high school, I got the highest overall SAT scores, with a perfect 800 for math, and, as far as I know, the highest ACT scores, with similar results in math and science. I graduated first in class and earned a full ride scholarship to study Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles. However, due to many factors, primarily financial and personal reasons, I left UCLA after the Winter Quarter of 2015. I have now successfully transferred to CSUB, since the Winter Quarter of 2016 and am pursuing a degree in Engineering, with an emphasis in Petroleum.

Due to my many sessions with helping children ranging from early middle school to high school seniors, I have had much experience in helping students learn the material needed. Having five younger sisters that constantly need help with their homework hasn't hurt neither. I am willing to go to any location requested that's reasonable, or we can go to a public location such as a library. I look forward to meeting you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

As far as I know, I got one of the highest scores in this section when I took it. I received a score of 34 in this part. I also have the tests I took from these years as practice.

Algebra 1

I took this course when I was in middle school and got straight A's in it. I was also the one helping out the rest of the students when they didn't understand it. Now that one of my sisters is in this grade I am the one helping her out with the material.

Algebra 2

I got an A in both semesters when I took it in high school. This material came easily to me and should be easy for me to teach. I have also tutored in this subject in previous years.

American History

I took the AP exam for this course and got a 4 on it. I always had a knack for history of any kind so this comes really easy to me. I hope to pass this on to whoever I'm helping out.

ASVAB

I took the ASVAB during my senior year and got one of the highest scores of my class with an overall score of 94. This is one of the reasons why I was able to get a good job once I joined the Marine Corps. My experience taking the exam would be valuable in helping those in need.

Biology

I took the SAT Subject exam for biology in my junior year and got a pretty good score. I believe it was 640. I could be a great help in assisting those who would also like to take that exam.

Calculus

I received a 4 in the AP Calculus BC exam when I took it. This translates to a 5 in the Calculus AB exam. I also still have the study packets that I used to prepare for this exam.

Chemistry

I got an A in both semesters when I took it in high school. A lot of what was taught in chemistry was math-oriented so it came really easy for me. I could be a great assistance to those would need my help.

Elementary Math

I was always the one to help others even in my elementary days. Now that my sisters are going through this time phase, I help them with whatever they need. This has given me the knowledge and experience as to how to teach this subject.

Geometry

I got an A in both semesters when I took it in high school. Not many liked it because it was a lot of proofs and writing. However I liked it and will be great in helping those in need.

Prealgebra

When I took this class in 7th grade, I was the one to help those who needed it. All that I learned here built on in later years in the calculus and higher level classes that I took. Therefore, I have an extensive knowledge on the material taught in this course.

Precalculus

I got an A in both semesters when I took it in high school. I also have study material that translates to what was taught in this course. This will help me teach the material easier.

SAT Math

I was one of the few people in my area to get a perfect score of 800 in this section. I still have the study material that I used to prepare for the exam. I will use these packets to help teach the material better.
