About Bernardo


Bio

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 around this. It doesn't matter how well a lecture is presented or how good the teacher is. If you don't do the work yourself, you'll probably not succeed....

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 around this. It doesn't matter how well a lecture is presented or how good the teacher is. If you don't do the work yourself, you'll probably not succeed. I also think there's a fear factor involving math. Most students think it is a difficult subject and fear they will do badly. This creates an additional barrier for the student to succeed.

Based on this ideas, when I tutor I try to achieve the following:

1. Create a relaxed atmosphere in which to work. Humor is a big part of this.
2. Help the student overcome their fear of the subject.
3. Identify the strengths and weaknesses of the students.
4. Ask them to work through problems that test or challenge their weaknesses.
5. Also suggest problems that play to their strengths in order to build up their confidence.

MATLAB

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.

Very patient and knowledgeable

I've only had one lesson with Bernardo and he has already been very helpful. He truly understands linear algebra and was able to patiently explain concepts that I was having difficulty with.

Sunitha, 6 lessons with Bernardo

very patient

Bernardo made learning very easy and fun. He’s very funny and makes me want to learn more. I’m really glad he messaged me back the same day I inquired.

Amazing tutor

Bernardo is an amazing tutor. I am taking an intro Matlab class and after two sessions with Bernardo I am on track to mastering the material. Even though he is an expert in the subject, he was able to come down to my beginner level and explain the concepts in simpler terms and with patience. I highly recommend Bernardo.

Ian, 21 lessons with Bernardo

Knowledgeable and Patient

Bernardo has an impressive knowledge on optimization algorithms and matlab coding. That was the topic I needed help recently and he was able to explain the concepts in a very clear way letting me know exactly what I needed to know. I definitely recommend him for any advanced math and matlab code needs. Besides his vast knowledge he has a very calm and nice personality which makes the tutoring sessions enjoyable.

Excellent Tutor for AP Calculus

He taught my daughter curve sketching, analyzing graphs, concavity and derivative tests . He is very good to explain the concepts and teach how to solve the problem.

Knowledgeable and helpful

Bernardo was extremely patient when helping my son with precalculus. My son is feeling more confident and already looking forward to his next lesson with Bernardo.

Arathi, 2 lessons with Bernardo

Very patient and helpful

We worked with integers, he explained very clear what are integers, some rules. I was not sure of taking the class online but I really liked it! He explained very well in a way that I understood. Thanks, Bernardo.
