About Alfredo J

My love of teaching comes from my intense desire to see students succeed in their careers. My ultimate goal is to see all my students surpass me my knowledge.

I specialize in tutoring Languages (Spanish and Portuguese), Mathematics (Pre-Algebra), Sciences (Geology) and Computer Skills (PowerPoint) for middle school, high school and adults. My tutoring and training experience and background is explained in the next paragraphs.

I started my career as mining geologist in Peru after completing my BSc in Geology from University of São Paulo, Brazil. I spent many hours mapping mine-fronts and describing the mineralogy/petrology of hundreds of miles of rock cores. It was my “real life” school, learning - field geology and developing my initial fluency in Spanish (my natural language is Portuguese.)

Most of my Spanish fluency, however, comes from being married to a wonderful Peruvian lady and from my last 15 years of work in Mexico.
In the 70’s I lived and worked in Denver and graduated with a MSc in Mathematics. My objective was to obtain the formal background required by the job as Research Scientist. The degree and work allowed to develop further my mathematical skills in areas such as algebra, probability/statistics and numerical analysis.
In the last 10 years I have develop and delivered a series of training seminars that include hundreds of MS PowerPoint presentations. I will teach not just the PPT software rules/techniques but, if required, teach also how to design meaning business presentations.

I am a very patient person and my goal for each session is to keep student challenged but comfortable. We will discuss with each student the need and amount of homework to be completed. I will also provide periodic student progress reports and discuss next steps. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies and career.
