About Miguel

I have an Associate's of Science degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Santa Ana College. To obtain this degree, I was required to take 3 classes of C++. These classes were called, Introduction to Computer Programming, Programming Concepts and Data Structures. I have about 3+ years of tutoring experience with C++. I'm looking forward to obtaining Bachelor's degrees for both subjects at the moment. Throughout my education I found myself tutoring classmates and other students in mathematics.

The ability to help others achieve their goals or give a helping hand to someone that is struggling will always make my day. As a result, I discovered that the best way for most students to learn is to teach to others. Thus, my tutoring style is to first teach the student how to solve a problem then have the student try to see themselves in a scenario where the student is teaching someone else on how to do a math problem. Additionally, I encourage students to visualize the problem. This way, they can have a better understanding on why, for example, "xyz" method is used to solve the problem. It is essential for students to understand instead of memorize things and that is why I apply this to my tutoring style.

Overall, I have about 12 years of tutoring experience ranging from Basic Mathematics all the way to 4th semester Calculus. I have been tutoring fellow classmates especially in my math classes ever since I was 12. Although I would not get paid for it, I would feel very proud of myself for helping others in their struggles especially when they would come back to me to thank me for the help I have given them.

I see tutoring and teaching as a form of art. It takes a lot of skill and patience to be able to become a good teacher/tutor that can explain in detail how to proceed with a problem and also be able to be more than willing to answer any of the students' questions. Some students hesitate to ask questions because they feel that they will be made fun of by asking a question. I believe that smart students ask a lot of questions because they know by asking they will get the answer. When I tutor my students, I always encourage them to ask me any questions they have on any of the material we're covering. Ultimately, I am very thorough when it comes to teaching/tutoring a subject as I want to make sure the student gets as much knowledge as they can for each of our sessions.
