Calculus,

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.
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.

Well prepared

Ruben is the sort of tutor who comes in very well prepared and expects his students to do the same. I am hoping this will help my son get more organized and learn better. We have had only two lessons and they seemed to have gone well.

Organized and Excellent ACT Math Tutor!

My son waited to almost the last minute to start thinking about preparing to take the ACT for the second time. After much convincing, my son agreed to get a math tutor to prepare him for the ACT in two weeks. Ruben S. agreed to help him. Ruben was able to break down complex equations in an easy to understand format. He was always organized and prepared for each session with great follow up. My son met with him online for a total of 6 - 1 hour sessions. I’m happy to report that we just received my son’s new ACT scores. His math score went up 4 points in just those two weeks of tutoring with Ruben (composite score up 3 points). Thank you, Ruben!

Extremely knowledgeable

Ruben is very knowledgeable and passionate. His tutoring techniques are customized based on the needs of my child. He also provides a very detail summary of the tutoring session afterwards.

Tracie, 8 lessons with Ruben

thorough and patient

I am taking a calculus class after a long absence from mathematics, and Ruben has been phenomenal in exploring where there are gaps in my knowledge, and addressing those gaps.

David, 36 lessons with Ruben

Awesome, reliable and knowledgeable tutor

Ruben is probably one of the most involved tutor we've come across. He spends a lot of time with my son and really explains the material in an easy to understand way. My son has a very difficult time with Precalculus, but Ruben is really helping him. Ruben makes himself available and really puts the effort in. I don't think there's a better tutor!

Valerie, 86 lessons with Ruben

He helped me pass my exam!

Ruben was the perfect choice to teach me calculus. He explains it in a way that you can understand and he has no problem breaking it down further. I passed my test in large part due to his help! He’s very patient and kind. Would definitely recommend!

Drew, 3 lessons with Ruben

Very Knowledgeable Teacher

My Son had 5 sessions on honor calculus with Ruben and planning to do more. Ruben is very knowledgeable and knows bay area school course book and follows accordingly. Ruben help my son a lot by making him understand fundamentals. He is very good Teacher and very generous in terms of session time. I highly recommend Ruben for everybody who is looking for help on Math.
