Fresno State University (Civil Engineering BS)
All students can do well in mathematics with hard work and by having fun. I am passionate about passing on the knowledge I have gained during my educational and Civil Engineering career.
I tutor Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and Geometry subjects beginning with grade 5 through college/university undergraduate studies. Before each session I request a list of the topics that the Student needs covered. I emphasis organization and methodology when solving problems. I prefer online/library/home settings for the sessions. However, I will work with the student and/or parent to determine a location most convenient for the student.
P. S. I have a 36-hour cancellation policy. All students can do well in mathematics with hard work and by having fun. I am passionate about passing on the knowledge I have gained during my educational and Civil Engineering career.

I was looking for a Algebra 1 tutor for my daughter. I found Mr. Carl on a friends FB page and contacted him. I was able to get a tutoring session for the next day. We met at a local library, he arrived ahead of our scheduled time. Prior to our meet, he requested specific information about what my daughter is currently learning and what she needs help with so that he can customize a plan for her.
Mr. Carl was very professional upon our meeting and very respectful towards both myself and my daughter.
I greatly appreciated that he listened to my concerns and reassured me that he could help her. He showed genuine care for her success.
During the session, Mr. Carl was patient, knowledgeable, he explained things to her in a clear and thorough way and most importantly, she got it!! After the session, she felt confident enough to say she wants to retake a quiz in her Algebra class for a better grade.
As a parent, I want my daughter to be successful and I am confident that with Mr. Carl's help, she will regain her focus and confidence in math. I have already scheduled another session for my daughter.
My son is struggling with Algebra 1. Carl, made son feel comfortable and at ease. I noticed Carls patients, and commitment. My son will continue to seek Carls help until he feels confident.
Today was my son's first lesson with Carl. He was very professional and patient with him. He explained how he helps his students and after the session he even went over what he taught my son. Me being a me and trying to get feed back from my son once we were in our car, I asked how the lesson went while I was away while he had his lesson and he said Carl was cool and not mean at all.. He said he leaned alot from him so we will definitely see Carl for more lessons! He's excellent.
Carl is a task master. My son 7th grade son frequently gets off task or starts interesting conversations. Carl quietly listens and respectfully and calmly redirects him back to the assignment. He notes my son's weaknesses and helps my son become aware of his own bad habits as well. Our mantra is now "take the steps not the shortcuts" since my son has tried to do some of his work in his head or do multiple steps at once in the past (which usually resulted in silly mistakes). My son now feels confident and is getting A's and B's on his exams and quizzes. Carl is also very reliable and always on time. To date we have never had a lesson cancellation and he has always been punctual. I can't say enough positive things about Carl. We are lucky to have found him. His methodical and quiet approach is exactly what what my talkative, sometimes distracted son needed!
Carl is teaching my son pre-algebra. We have been struggling for months. My son had gone to a tutor math company which was expensive and unfortunately didn't help because he was distracted by the other kids. He needed one on one tutoring. We've seen a huge improvement in a short time. Carl is extremely patient and gives tips for my son to grasp the subject. He also emphasizes organization. It's well worth the money! It's working.
Carl, tutored my son who is a 9th grader taking Algebra 1. This was our first tutoring session and it went very well. I like that Carl takes his time and that he builds the foundation and concept and teaches his students how to look for solutions to solve the problems. We look forward to working with Carl again.
The best indication of Carl's effectiveness is that my grandson told me that he felt much more confident as a result of Carl's help, and asked if he could continue with him.
My daughter had her first tutoring session with Mr. Carl yesterday. From the moment we arrived, he was pleasant and friendly. Prior to the session, he asked if there was anything in particular I wanted him to cover. I made a list and sent it to him.
At the session, he had me go into detail what my daughter needed to review and I explained my concerns for her to understand and be able to explain her work.
After the session, he went over with me what they had discussed and showed me the work they'd done. We scheduled another session. My daughter liked that Mr. Carl was patient and explained things in detail with her.
We have another session next week. I'm so happy that we found a good fit for us with Mr. Carl!
After one session, my son feels more confident about Pre-Algebra. We will continue to work with Carl and report our progress so that others may benefit from our experience.
My daughter work was so neat and organized, I was very amazed. I asked my daughter how did she feel about her first day of tutoring and she said, awesome and confidence. She also learned some new words regards to her math homework assignment and now she has better understanding of her work. We left with a big smile on my daughter face. Thank you Mr. Carl M.
Thank you for your feedback and the opportunity to tutor your daughter.
During our first session we went over quadratic and polynomials operations as well as factoring. It was an opportunity for him to see where I was in my understanding of Algebra 1 and how to best approach my tutoring for the upcoming sessions. He was very knowledgeable as well as patient and fun to work with.
Thank you for your feedback. Since I have now been tutoring Algebra 2 for the last two weeks can you provide me additional feedback?
My nephew, who is being tutored by Carl in Algebra 1 topics, found himself understanding challenging math topics that he wasn't understanding in school. My family and I are very excited to have Carl tutor our nephew on a regular basis in order for our nephew to build a strong foundation & love for mathematics!
Although we was able to get to fully discuss ALL of my current issues on this date, I was able to notice his passion for the subject. He was very nice, patient and understanding. I was happy with my first session.
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 have a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, and have tutored Algebra 1 for at least 20 years. I stress to the student the importance of understanding the principles of Algebra 1 and help them solve homework problems and prepare for quizzes, exams and tests.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, and have tutored Algebra 2 for at least 20 years. I impress on the student the importance of understanding the principles of Algebra 2 and solving as many problems as possible to reinforce them.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, and have tutored Geometry for at least 10 years. I impress on the student the importance of building reasoning skills, along with developing a sharp understanding of the algebraic properties of equality, definitions, theorems, and postulates used to solve geometry problems.
