About Adrian


Bio

I have 4 years of tutoring experience during my time at Cal Poly SLO where I tutored my peers in various math and engineering courses. During that time I also tutored my younger brother via video chat through middle school and high school math courses such as Geometry and Algebra. Currently, I work for a structural engineering company where I mentor a group of Civil Engineering UCI students through their senior project.

I have 4 years of tutoring experience during my time at Cal Poly SLO where I tutored my peers in various math and engineering courses. During that time I also tutored my younger brother via video chat through middle school and high school math courses such as Geometry and Algebra. Currently, I work for a structural engineering company where I mentor a group of Civil Engineering UCI students through their senior project.

In college, my professors taught me that engineering is about communication: being able to effectively communicate ideas, concepts, and designs to others, even those who don't have an engineering background. Working as a structural engineer, I constantly have to present ideas to other engineers, but also to architects, contractors, and owners. Presenting the same idea to groups with different backgrounds has helped me improve at communicating to people of varying levels of understanding.

The benefit of one-on-one tutoring as opposed to classroom learning is that it is tailored specifically to you. My approach to tutoring involves first identifying a student's grasp on a subject and their goals for improvement to define the start point and desired end result. It is important to understand student strengths and difficulties within a subject before jumping into a lesson. This will dictate the structure of the lessons and help build an idea of what areas need to be focused on and how a student thinks. Being able to adapt to different learning styles and levels of understanding is important for successful lessons. Establishing learning goals and creating milestones can help track progress of a students learning and provide accountability and information to decide if the teaching method is effective or if it can be improved upon.

I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor's Degree in Engineering and got a job right out of school into a Top 100 Engineering company. As an engineer, I love efficiency and the puzzle of new challenges and learning new things. I also love the puzzle o

Amazing tutor!

Adrian as been an amazing tutor for my middle school son. I found him in a panic trying to get someone to help my son get through a backlog of Algebra 1 homework assignments completed. He was super responsive and communicative and made himself available at the last minute on a weekend to help. We are so very grateful we found him! And he has been so helpful, patient and thorough with my son, and my son has really responded to him, that we have decided to schedule regular weekly sessions to help keep my son on track. Thank you Adrian!

Good teacher

Adrian did a good job teaching my son. He is clear and understandable. He really helped. I highly recommend him. We will be using his services again in the future.

Ramani, 1 lesson with Adrian

Great tutor

He’s so helpful and time considerate. Principles of structural design is a hard class and he made the work so easy to understand, would definitely recommend him!

Andrea, 3 lessons with Adrian

Highly recommended tutor in Concrete Design!!!

Adrian is well equipped with the necessary knowledge and concepts in helping me with my homework in Concrete Design. I sent him my homework so he can review prior to our session and came prepared indeed. After our session, I was able to access the solutions that we worked on in Wyzant.

I Super Appreciate Adrian!

While looking for tutors, I wanted to find someone who I believed my son would work well with. I found Adrian, and asked my middle school son if he'd like to work with Adrian, and he liked how Adrian worked with his (Adrian's) younger siblings and family. I gave Adrian a pretty tough job, but he's definitely EXCELLING in it. My son is pretty picky with who he works with, and he really enjoys working with Adrian. I wish I would have hired him long before! Thanks!
