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! Hi, my name is Ruben. I am a native Spaniard, and I have been living in San Ramon for the past 19 years.

Ruben helped my son with Geometry and Trigonometry for ACT testing. He is very organized, engaging, thorough and articulate with his material. My son was very comfortable with him, found him easy to understand and benefited tremendously from his lessons. Ruben was very patient with my son and went the extra mile to ensure that he understood the material and improved in the practice tests. My son and I are very thankful to Ruben and would recommend him to anyone looking for tutoring in Math. We will definitely take Ruben’s help again.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!!
It was a great first meeting on a difficult and intimidating subject - pre-calc. Ruben related well to my shy child - he was very helpful.
I am so happy that Ruben has been able to help my son understand Algebra 2. He's patient and kind and thorough with the material. My son has gained so much confidence in the math world and I'm so thankful for Ruben's help!
My daughter went on an exchange for a semester last year and needed a tutor to help her prepare for a test when she returned and Ruben was excellent. Very patient, knowledgeable and efficient. Ruben was clear when explaining the information and made sure she understood the material. He is very professional and flexible. He changed his schedule to accommodate her. I highly recommend Ruben.
Ruben has been very helpful and flexible in getting my son back up to speed and accommodating a tough schedule.
Ruben is a great instructor and an incredibly valuable resource due to his various skill sets. I was taking a very difficult C++ summer course at a college, and even though I was a beginning programmer, Ruben did an incredible job of guiding me through the course's lessons and explaining many difficult concepts. His attention to detail, precision, and knowledge of C++ (and other programming languages) proved extremely useful. Additionally, Ruben is punctual and dedicated, and he really seems to enjoy teaching. I could not have asked for a better instructor to introduce me to a field that was completely new to me! The fact that he can teach computer science, math, and Spanish at a high level is truly remarkable. I'm looking forward to continue working with him.
Ruben helped me on my geometry and Spanish being that I struggle with geometry in the past with Ruben's help I now understand it very well!
Ruben was very engaging and proactive days leading up to our first tutoring session. He seemed patient and was able to explain materials while keeping his student focused.
Ruben is great with my son. They get so much done together and my son says Ruben is very helpful in understanding his Pre-Calc. I am so thankful to find Ruben.
Ruben patiently explained the conjugations and set up immediate practice sentences. He finds where improvement is needed, explains the rules and practices immediately to solidify the knowledge. We're looking forward to the next session with Ruben.
We're only at the 5th lesson with Ruben and we are impressed. Our boys 11 and 8 years know enough words to express basic needs in Spanish, which they never used before and it is a complete new experience for them. Ruben is very patient and meticulously building the foundation of their Spanish mastering. Thank you Ruben!
My son was pretty impressed and comfortable working with Ruben. He is thorough and is always willing to go above and beyond to ensure his student understands the material. I will recommend Ruben to anyone wanting their kids to not only excel in math but also increase their interest in the subject.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
