About Rodrigo


Bio

If you're having trouble in your math or science class, I would love to help you get back on your feet. School can be way more fun when you're understanding what's going on in class and you can participate confidently. Homework will no longer feel like torture because you can do it quickly and easily. Or, maybe you're already doing well and you want to improve your grade from a B+ to an A? I can help you do that too!

If you're having trouble in your math or science class, I would love to help you get back on your feet. School can be way more fun when you're understanding what's going on in class and you can participate confidently. Homework will no longer feel like torture because you can do it quickly and easily. Or, maybe you're already doing well and you want to improve your grade from a B+ to an A? I can help you do that too!

I found my passion for science and math education while attending the University of California, Berkeley where I worked part-time as a tutor. I began with teaching high school students in math and science at Berkeley High's after-school program for 3 years. My excellent grades as a Chemistry major also got me a position as a Peer Tutor in physical chemistry and general chemistry for my undergraduate peers at UC Berkeley.

As an experienced tutor, I'm excellent at finding the problem areas quickly so we can spend our time effectively. And, my own education makes me a uniquely qualified tutor: I received my Chemistry degree from UC Berkeley — consistently ranked 1st in Chemistry by national rankings. My rigorous education taught me calculus, physics, and chemistry at a high-level.

The best part of being a tutor is seeing my students light-up as they finally understand the material and the weight on their shoulders starts slipping away. I look forward to sharing that moment with you!

Great teacher

This is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had academically he’s really explain topics really well to me he help me pass chemistry to and I couldn’t ask for a better teacher really patient unfortunately I’ve been having computer issues which has had to cut her session short multiple times but overall this is one of the best chemistry tutors I’ve ever had and I would strongly recommend them.

Rodrigo is Excellent!

Rodrigo has done an awesome job! I highly recommend him! He has been very helpful, flexible and knowledgeable. He has really helped my son understand the subject matter.

Stephanie, 4 lessons with Rodrigo

Patient, good explanations.

Helped me a lot in chemistry. We went through a bunch of hard homework problems and he was very patient and had very clear explanations that helped me understand each specific type of problem.

Arsham, 1 lesson with Rodrigo

Knowledgeable tutor

Rodrigo was phenomenal tutor. He helped me get a better understanding of the weak acid reactions, and was genuinely trying to help me with my lab. So knowledgable and can explain topics in great detail. Thank you very much ! A lot of precision and knows which techniques work best in lab. Pp

Manju, 1 lesson with Rodrigo

Awesome tutor ! 10/10 reccomend

He made sure to be prepared and allowed me to present the questions I have over messages so our first tutoring lesson covered what I truly needed. He is awesome and very helpful. I look forward to many more lessons to help me master chemistry.

Alysa, 3 lessons with Rodrigo

Very knowledgeable

I wasn't understanding my chemistry and came to this site. Thank goodness I did because he helped me understand all the formulas. Great tutor, helped tremendously.

Paige, 1 lesson with Rodrigo

Knowledgeable Chemistry Tutor

We have just begun our tutoring with Rodrigo, but he is very knowledgeable about Chemistry. My son was having a rough time, but is grasping concepts much better under his tutelage. I definitely recommend Rodrigo

NAKIA, 2 lessons with Rodrigo

Great tutor!

Rodrigo was very helpful! He worked through every problem with me and helped clarify all of my questions. He was easy to follow and helped clear up many confusing concepts. Highly recommended!
