About Gerardo


Bio

I specialize in tutoring all levels of math (AP included), science, SAT and GRE prep, and college level classes. One of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my ability to communicate with my students, pin-point areas that need improvement, and my overall ability to observe and perceive where the disconnect between the material and my student's understanding of it exists. I have over 7 years of tutoring experience. I have tutored for tutoring companies and as a freelance tutor for grades 6th to...

I specialize in tutoring all levels of math (AP included), science, SAT and GRE prep, and college level classes. One of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my ability to communicate with my students, pin-point areas that need improvement, and my overall ability to observe and perceive where the disconnect between the material and my student's understanding of it exists. I have over 7 years of tutoring experience. I have tutored for tutoring companies and as a freelance tutor for grades 6th to 12th, for undergraduates, and for graduate students pursuing PhD's. I also do volunteer tutoring for kids from underprivileged backgrounds. In short, I love to tutor. In addition to tutoring, I am currently working on developing MEMS devices (micro-electronics) for a start-up I founded with some colleagues. I graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology, class of 2011.

When I tutor, my personal teaching philosophy is to make sure that my students learn by intuition and logic rather than memorization. My goal is to help my students succeed in their future educational career (not just one single class). Once an individual gets to college, he or she will have to work on developing their critical thinking skills. After college, many employers and prestigious companies place a huge importance on critical thinking skills in their potential candidates. These skills are a necessary prerequisites to teach new hires how to use sophisticated techniques, methods, and technologies. By helping my students to develop these "thinking" skills, skills which are sometimes neglected in conventional high school education (and sometimes even college education), I help them to get a head start over the competition. Moreover, my tutoring program is designed to specifically target your needs. It is a not a cookie-cutter, "one-size fits all" program that is often advocated by large tutoring enterprises.

I am flexible with my time and I am willing to come to your home if needed. Contact me so we can arrange tutoring sessions.

Very qualified!

My son really enjoyed meeting and working with Gerardo. He liked his approach. Gerardo explained the concepts where my son needed assistance, showed an example, and then observed Matt as he tried to work the problem on his own, adding assistance as needed. It was the right balance of support. Gerardo knew the concepts thoroughly even though it was the first meeting.

I have been looking for a tutor for my daughter that is knowledgeable in Algebra 2. Gerardo met the challenge, he was patient and took the time to make sure my daughter really understood the material.

I am very fortunate to have found Gerardo as a tutor for my son who is a junior in high school. He is very professional in dealing with me for scheduling and knowledgeable and patient with the student. I could not have asked for a better tutor!!
