About RUBEN

Hi, my name is Ruben. I am a native Spaniard, and I have been living in San Ramon for the past 19 years. While attending college, I became a tutor, helping other students enjoy and understand Math and Computer Science subjects.

After graduating with honors, I have worked for a few of the best known IT companies in the Bay Area, but I've never forgotten my link to teaching. I'm looking forward to helping you understand and love that specific subject you seem to be having a little trouble with.

I am a college graduate with a double major in CS and Mathematics, and I graduated at the top of my class. I completed coursework including Trigonometry, Algebra, Calculus, Analysis, Numerical Analysis, Optimization, and Abstract Algebra.

I feel the best way to overcome an obstacle is to embrace the difficulties it entails, and to enjoy the whole process. Let's conquer your goals together, and stop making a mountain out of a molehill. It's really not that tough. Let's get started!

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.

Calculus

I have a BS degree in Math, graduating with honors. I started tutoring Calculus while in College, and I've been successful helping my students connect with the material and becoming successful.

Computer Programming

I have been programming since I was 12 years old. Also, I received a BS in Computer Science from California State University, East Bay in 2006. I have worked as a programmer for several companies in the Bay Area, and I am proficient with a number of programming languages.

Precalculus

I graduated with a double major in Math and Computer Science, and have tutored many PreCalculus students starting at my time as a student in College, always achieving a notable improvement in my students' grades and comprehension.

Spanish

I am a native Spaniard with a perfect command of both the Spanish and English languages. I speak proper (European) Spanish, and I have been bilingual since age 4.
