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 got me a position at UC Berkeley's chemistry department as a Peer Academic Tutor for Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry which I held during my last 2 years of college. In addition to tutoring fellow college students during those 2 years, the position also gave me the opportunity to spend 2 summers teaching Algebra to middle school students.

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 (including quantum, biochemistry, and organic 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

Rodrigo really helps me solidify and feel confident in my knowledge before an exam. He is great at simplifying concepts, and thoroughly explains himself.

Awesome Help

Rodrigo did a great job of helping me understand my pchem material. Anything that he did not know off of the top of his head he helped me to find and figure out step by step.

Hailey, 6 lessons with Rodrigo

Great tutor!

My son was really happy with his first lesson with Rodrigo. We feel that we are very fortunate and so happy to find him. We are looking forward to more lessons with him. Thank you so much for helping.

Very knowledgeable and kind tutor

He teaches AP chemistry in easy ways. Very knowledgeable and friendly. After lecturing, he is sending all notes for review. Very satisfied! Will recommend to every students.

Hannah, 34 lessons with Rodrigo

Awesome Tutor!!

Rodrigo is very calm and direct when teaching you the material. And makes sure that all bases are covered in order to enrich your understanding.

Caridad, 1 lesson with Rodrigo

Best in the system

My boy Rodrigo is the best Tutor I have ever had. He is one of the most intelligent young men I’ve come across, and he is just absolutely excellent. I personally have him to help me with pre calculus and he is outstanding. Rodrigo knows all the concepts and formulas to use, but what makes him so great is that he is so great at helping me understand the formulas and concepts for a higher grade in the class. I would never choose a different math tutor than my friend Rodrigo. But math is not even his strongest area as he is a college graduate with a degree in chemistry which definitely is a huge advantage for me and anyone struggling with complex chemical equations. Definitely give him a chance it is well worth it.

Vanessa, 7 lessons with Rodrigo

Responsive and patient tutor

Rodrigo is very patient and communicative. He always sends relevant and supportive materials to follow up after the lessons. My son never misses a lesson with Rodrigo because it’s such an important part of his studying.

Tida, 14 lessons with Rodrigo

Extremely good at explaining

Rodrigo's teaching style is awesome. He explains why chemical reactions are doing what they are doing and then asks that I try to work the problem out . Very very patient. Another aspect I like about him is he made me feel comfortable since the first lesson. Highly believe in him.
