“**Awesome Tutor**”

I'm a college professor with 25+ years of experience teaching mathematics and computer programming. My favorite subjects include precalculus, calculus, linear algebra, optimization and numerical analysis.

I believe the only way to learn mathematics or computer programming is by working through many exercises and problems. There's no way

I worked with Bernardo for 2 weeks to prepare for Mira Costa's Intermediate Algebra Test. Prior to that I hadn't studied math for over 10 years. Bernardo was an exceptional tutor. He was able to answer all of my questions and gave me helpful tips and strategies for solving different problems. I passed my exam with flying colors and am grateful to Bernardo for all of his patience and help. I would highly recommend working with him.

My daughter has tried out a few tutors, and Bernardo is the best for her AP calculus! This is the first time she has needed a math tutor. We are so happy to have found Bernardo!

My son attends Torrey Pines High School; He is taking an Honor math class and is struggling. He feels much better and is getting his confidence back after the first tutoring session with Bernardo last night. We had different match tutor last week but my son prefers Bernardo. Thank you.

This is the second school year my son, 16 years old, has been receiving tutoring from Bernardo in advanced math. Bernardo is experienced and that is an asset as my son is also completing a math program from Europe. Bernardo is also very accommodating with our time schedule.

Bernardo has worked with my daughter on calculus BC and has been incredibly helpful and patient in helping her understand difficult concepts. He has been really easy to work with, and has been very accommodating in his scheduling. Most of all, he is great at explaining things and has a wonderful gift of of making a very difficult subject easier for her to understand. Thanks Bernardo!

Bernardo is really patient and I actually understand the concepts when he explains them. I would not be passing my class if it wasn't for him.

Bernardo has only just started working with my daughter, but he seems very kind and patient. He listens to what you need for your student and tries to tailor his lessons accordingly. I was impressed with the way he used word association tricks to help my daughter remember and work out certain math problems more easily and make math more fun for her.

Bernardo was great with my son and went over everything My son was confused with. My son said it helped a great deal.

Bernado teaches my 9th grade son Geomery. He explains the concept well and my son feels good after each session. Bernardo is time punctual and very responsible. I am happy that we find a great tutor!

Explained the difficult concepts in ways that made it easier to understand for my college calculus class. Extremely knowledgeable and patient.

My daughter and her friend both tell me that Bernardo's lessons and explanations clear and easy to understand. I can see that they are both very engaged and enjoy the learning process.

Bernardo tutored my son for both Calculus I and II. He is very clear in his explanations and knows his stuff. He is also friendly and patient. He greatly increased both my son's knowledge and confidence. He couldn't have gotten a A's in both classes without him!

Overall a great tutor, who knows a lot about optimization in MatLab, and can help you figure out almost everything you may be working on utilizing MatLab, at least within the optimization spectrum.

Bernardo works with my 2 boys on very different levels of math... Algebra 2 and AP Calculus BC. He is very effective with both of them, communicates the concepts very well, and they enjoy their time with him.

He explained things simply to me and at my pace, was able to answer all my questions. Will definitely use again.

Bernardo is an excellent tutor. He is kind and patient, and Bernardo helped my son understand some concepts he was struggling with. I would highly recommend Bernardo.

We are very happy with Bernardo. He's tutored my daughter 4 times now and has been a good fit for my daughters learning style. He makes it fun, he's patient and she's learning from him from one on one. I highly recommend him.

We are very pleased with Bernardo. He is very patient with our grandson who has ADHD. We are starting to see improvement in his work.

Bernardo tutors both my boys in Algebra 2 and AP Calc. The boys are doing great. Very knowledgable and patient man.

My son loves how Bernardo tutors him with his Calculus BC. He is patient and explains the reasoning behind the way things are in a logical sense. Because he is so knowledgeable, he can explain in different ways and can show concepts visually as well as auditorily. He shows his excitement for math which makes it much more enjoyable to learn. He always tries to be available if he can because he knows that teenagers schedules are so tough so has come late at night and in a moments notice if he can. Really wonderful Math tutor and person. You will definitely not be disappointed with his help!

I was worried before seeing Professor Bernardo about my calculus exam. He was able to help with the chain rule and implicit differentiation. He breaks down the theory so that it becomes simple to see. It was just my first tutoring session with him. I will see him again!

Bernardo taught me college-level Calculus 2. I liked Bernardo's tutoring methods within every meeting. He was very empathetic and willing to stop and answer any questions and clarifications I needed. He was very excellent and I would recommend him to anybody who needs help with the same subject.

He is very patient and thorough and explains concepts very well. This is the 3rd lesson and we have been very happy.

I am taking a business calculus class. Bernardo is very patient, helpful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him. 5 stars!

Bernardo helped my two high school students with Honors pre-calculus and Algebra 2. We would recommend him to any parent whose child struggles or need extra help with their math work.

Bernardo is a great teacher - knowledgeable and patient. He excels at identifying a student's weak points and working to improve in those areas.

Very accommodating to my son's athletic schedule. He's helped Jackson so much. His grade has gone from an 81% to 89% and rising. Very grateful.

I was taking a vector calculus course at UCSD over the summer and needed help with some of the more difficult material affiliated with the course. Bernardo was patient enough to go over problems outside of tutoring hours to make sure he understood the material when we met for each lesson. I've been through my fair share of tutors and Bernardo has been one of the most patient and diligent. He cared more about helping me learn and less about the time. Highly recommended by a chemical engineering student.

Thanks again Bernardo!

Bernardo is a polished professional with extensive experience in teaching and a patient approach that proved invaluable in enabling our granddaughter to overcome her difficulties in geometry. Next time we will be sure to draw on his knowledge and teaching skill earlier in the school year in order to insure her confidence in math.

Bernardo is a very intelligent tutor with previous teaching experience. He helped me with my Calculus BC class. He does a great job showing multiple ways of solving certain problems to help students find the easiest way for them. He is reliable and I'm glad I chose him as my tutor.

Bernardo is a wonderful math tutor, hands down. He tutored me for College Matrix Algebra, and without him I would not have received the grade I wanted, a B! For me, this is outstanding, considering I had a very strict teacher and as math just is not my strong point. He is polite, patient, cordial, professional, has a good sense of humor, and most of all--worked at my pace. He also came up with practice problems. Any trouble or problem areas we had, we would go over even more thoroughly. We went over problems step-by-step, and he also had me try some problems on my own once we went over a few and reviewed a chapter.

I have been extremely impressed and can't say enough to recommend Bernardo as a math tutor! He has helped me on graduate level course work that is quite advanced and I am very pleased to have him as a resource. He is very patient and passionate about making sure his students attain a solid grasp of the concepts. He teaches by example, communicates very clearly, and is a joy to work with. He is very professional, reliable and responds promptly to inquires for appointments. Bernardo is simply superb!

Bernardo is super! My son likes his wit and style. He is a very patient teacher. I recommend Bernardo to tutor anyone.

I feel very lucky to have Bernardo helping our son through Algebra. Bernardo explains it very well. Thank you so much. My son mentioned after Bernardo left that he really likes him and he makes algebra easier to understand. Thank you Bernardo!!!

For the last lesson I asked my son how his lesson went. He said unbelievable. He told me algebra seems so much easier to understand now, but he feels like he is wasting his time in the classroom because his teacher does not know how to explain the math and now he could understand why he had so much trouble before Bernardo. My son and I both recommend Bernardo very highly and he is so worth way more than what he charges. He is the best tutor we have ever had.

Bernardo's years of experience shine in his patience and tutoring support for Algebra II. Having years of teaching experience allows him to determine where his pupils strengths and weakness are and adjust each session to help my grand daughter grasp the concepts by example and develop the skills to excel in the course thru exercises.

Bernardo is very knowledgeable about math. He is helping me with Numerical Analysis and he has been able to make me understand the subject better than my professor. He is great!

I have Mr. Bernado tutoring my son. We are very happy the way he is teaching him. Thank you.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I took a course on Discrete Mathematics as part of my distributed minor when pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Sciences. During my teaching career I've taught an equivalent course, Computational Mathematics, several times. I've also covered some of the topics of this subject within other courses, such as Network Flows, Calculus and Scientific Computing.

I've taught Linear Algebra courses more than 8 times during my career. I've also applied the techniques an concepts in the subject to many other courses, such as Linear Programming, Numerical Analysis, and other Optimization courses.

I taught a course in MATLAB programming for Scientific Computing several times. Most of the Optimization courses I taught for more than 20 years required students to submit computational projects written in MATLAB. Together with a student of mine, I developed GNUOflox, an open source teaching tool for Network Flows, completely written in MATLAB/Octave.
