About Ruben


Bio

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...

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!

Excellent

My son had his first Algebra 1 lesson with Ruben. He explained things very clearly and it is very apparent that he knows the material well. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Ronald, 1 lesson with Ruben

Great, calm and patient tutor

Ruben does a great job with my 13 year old son (Algebra 1). He is very knowledgeable, patient, and has a great personality. My son likes him a lot and looking forward to every lesson.

Maya, 20 lessons with Ruben

Patient and thorough

Ruben went far beyond what I was expecting. We have a difficult schedule and he was very adaptable, patient, and thorough. He is also a kind person with good character which lends confidence to a parent when leaving him one on one with our child.

Knowledgebase

Ruben was awesome tutoring me the math portion of the cbest for my test on Saturday. I have a second session on friday. He knows his stuff and is easy to follow his teaching concept.

Stacey, 2 lessons with Ruben

Great experience, very engaging

Ruben was very helpful and focused my 16 year old son on what he needed to do in order to improve his ACT scores. Afterwards he sent a detailed follow up plan for the next few weeks and recap notes. Very organized!

Mark, 2 lessons with Ruben

Easy to follow and well versed.

Taking a self-paced calculus course and was struggling as it's been years since I have taken a math class. Ruben not only cut through the review info for me but asked to see the syllabus so we could pace out to finish on time. I really appreciated the extra effort.

Susan, 10 lessons with Ruben

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Ruben is very flexible with my schedule and I plan on working with him for a long time. I recommend anybody who has never tried a tutor to start with him first.

Alberto, 19 lessons with Ruben

Great for last minute ACT prep

Ruben was great with my daughter for last minute ACT prep. His schedule was very flexible to fit her busy senior year. He was always prompt and well prepared as he was able to help her with both english and math. Highly recommend him!!
