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.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is a key subject in the High School curriculum which formalizes and extends many of the concepts in previous courses and adds new ones that will serve as a bridge to later courses. This makes Precalc a particularly challenging subject for many students, and at the same time it makes it a specially important one, as it lays the foundation for the more advanced concepts and procedures routinely used in Calculus. I have extensive experience tutoring PreCalculus to students of all levels, and my ability to make the concepts in the Precalculus curriculum understandable to any student by following different approaches is one of the reasons that sets me apart. I have been helping students succeed in Precalc for many years, let me help you as well!
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have been helping students improve their SAT Mathematics scores for many years. SAT Math uses concepts that are not particularly challenging, but because students are likely to not have seen some of the specific types of problems in the SAT Math exam most are likely not to score up to their full potential. I will help you practice, reason, and fully understand all the types of problems you will be tested on in your SAT Mathematics exam so you can be confident that when exam day comes you will be prepared to do well.

Trigonometry is a fundamental part of the curriculum that teach concepts which will be used throughout the later High School and College years. The concepts involved in Trig are simple, and if applied systematically, they allow the student to build a strong foundation.

Knowledgeable and Encouraging

Ruben has been helping my sixteen year old son with Trigonometry. He is very smart and knowledgeable, but what is also very helpful in our case is how supportive and encouraging Ruben has been. My son can tend to be a bit self-negative and feel like math is just not his thing and shut down a bit. Ruben continues to assure him that he can tell he does have a strong aptitude for math, and if my son will put in the extra time and practice with math even on his own in between tutoring sessions, his math skills will strengthen as will his confidence in his own abilities to do math. In the last two weeks he has received As on his last two Trig quizzes and is very proud and really starting to see that he can do it, and the extra time spent studying and practicing really does help! This is a LIFE lesson! So thankful to have Ruben in our lives for this valuable help!

Above and beyond!

Ruben surpassed every expectation I had in a tutor. Explains well and extensively. Extremely knowledgeable and am so happy I found such an amazing tutor. You won’t regret choosing Ruben!

Excellent at giving guidance and lessons

Ruben helped my daughter with precalculus and gave her tips that also spanned over into her computer science class as well. He was able to make things more concise in solving and is very patient.

Algebra 1

Today my son sent a thank you message to Ruben, because he because he got his first A on a math test. Although I am proficient at math, I don’t have the patience or the dedication to offer my son what Ruben does. It is priceless.

Algebra 1

Ruben has been so kind and patient with my son (and with me!) and keeps him wanting to come back for more each week. That kind of enthusiasm is priceless, and so appreciated!

Great tutor!

I just finished an online self-paced college precalculus course in about 3 months. Still need to take the final, but am expecting to get an A. I worked with Ruben for around 10, 90 minute sessions. He was extremely helpful. Completing the course as fast possible was very important to me. Without Ruben this wouldn’t have been possible. He went above and beyond and was very flexible. Ruben is an amazing tutor! Highly recommend.

Excellent SAT Tutor/Math

Ruben has worked with both of my children preparing them for their SATs. I can not recommend him enough. We have used several tutors via the Wyzant app and all have been excellent. Ruben, however, takes it to the next level. He is professional, highly skilled and motivated for his students to excel and do their very best. After every lesson he sends notes and provides feedback on their progress. One of the best things about Ruben is that both my kids liked and respected him and that made the process very easy. I highly recommend him.

Hands down- the best tutor. Just can't say enough good things.

Ruben took on our high schooler at a critical time. Our son has struggled with math since he was little and it's his Achilles heel. First, Ruben is insanely patient. I am sure I would have fired my son as a client:) He continued to support our son to work harder, gave him tips for weekly study practices that created deeper understanding. He wrote out problems for our son to work on in between their meetings and went over material when our son, sadly, did not do his practice problems as planned. Again- very patient man. Ruben is OUTRAGEOUSLY communicative in the most timely fashion. He corresponded with me and kept me in the loop. We coordinated for him to chat with the math professor so that all channels of support were aligned. My son hated the math:)....but loved working with Ruben. We have 5 sons and have needed help for each across various subjects. I can confidently say that Ruben is a fabulously unique tutor. He is insanely knowledgable in his subject, but marries that with a genuine care for his students and a lovely personality to boot. Stop looking- your kid will do better in math with his help.
