About Ernesto

I've been a tutor for the past two years because: learning something new is more fulfilling when you can share it with someone else. I began tutoring long before I tutored. I always found myself in situations where I helped friends, or friends of friends, with homework, or to simply understand a new concept. There's a thrill that invades the senses when you interact with someone who begins to speak the language you love, and I truly love to speak the language of math and science. What I love most is to be able to share that language with someone else and I believe that's the reason why I love to tutor.

In 2014, I began tutoring college students while working through two programs within the Monterey Peninsula College. Through the Math Learning Center and the Trio program, I tutored all levels of math up to calculus; that includes general arithmetic, algebra, statistics, geometry, and differential equations. In the Trio program specifically, I specialized in math, general physics (kinematics, electromagnetism, relativity) and chemistry (general and organic) because I earned Associates Degrees in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering. While not working and not in class, I would meet up with others who also needed help with any of the above subjects including English and biology. I currently work as a tutor on a one to three basis. I help children from kinder to high school to either get homework done, or simply learn something new or prepare for exams. I have an extreme amount of patience, fuel, and want to help others succeed and have plenty of experience with both one on one tutoring or one on three tutoring. I also tend to go out of my way to provide resources to better help such as making my own notes or flash cards for the student to study. I love to include mnemonic devices and play on words because I have seen that they work very well with the people I work with.

As I already stated, I currently hold Associates Degrees in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering. I understand the basic need to comprehend mathematical concepts and to be able to relate them to their use in every day life. I've always appreciated the will to know why we learn the things we are taught.

My name is Ernesto. Please feel free to contact me so we can both expand our mind a hair further.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I have completed the general chemistry requirements at the college level. I was granted an Associate's Degree in chemistry and, for about a year, I tutored general and organic chemistry at the college level. Furthermore, I currently tutor chemistry and this is my second year doing so. In addition, I stay up to date with current scientific research and can relate the material to real life circumstances to better aid in the understanding of the subject.

Prealgebra

I have an Associate's Degree of Mathematics and have two years of experience as a tutor. I have tutored algebra for two years to a range of levels including elementary school, middle school, high school, and college.
