About Jose

I am a Mechanical Engineer with a Master's Degree in Business Administration and and currently earning my PhD degree in Applied Mathematics.

I am actively teaching at different community colleges and local Universities different levels of Mathematics ranging from:

Basic Mathematics
Technical Mathematics
Basic Algebra
Intermediate Algebra
College Algebra
Trigonometry
Pre Calculus
Analytic Geometry
Calculus

I mainly have a Psocratic teaching style, normally I work problems with students by asking the students the critical questions that eventually will lead to the answer and solution of the problems in question.

I have realized over the years, this is an effective approach when it comes to teaching mathematics. Usually under this approach both, the student and me arrive at the answer in a natural way.

My experience tells me that usually the students are amazed by the way they arrive to the solution of problems, by the way they are learning and by the motivation they get by learning this way. Usually they find themselves surprised when they notice they want to continue solving more problems and learning more.

My best metric of measuring the level of learning of a student is by the number of questions the student asks and by the way the student during the learning process tries to challenge himself or herself.

Approved subjects

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.
