About Hector

My name is Hector, I'm an Engineer and love teaching languages and Math specially Algebra.I really like helping students and professionals to get better and reach their goals. Spanish is my native language and I have been teaching English for a while, from kids to adults with very good results. As for math I helped my friends at school and ended up teaching other students as well, I try to make it easy and fun. I use a step by step method to explain any topic, and it has provided very good results, because on the books or at school sometimes they don't include the whole process. I adapt myself to the student and not viceversa.

I enjoy very much seeing the progress of my students and see their confidence increase, to me that is very rewarding.

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.

I'm an Engineer, so I love math and teaching it. I know how to make it fun and easy to understand, I am very patient and use step by step method to explain any topic and use more graphics to explain the equations, roots, range, domain of the functions. I started helping my friends at school and liked it so much that I started tutoring other students with very good results. I really enjoy seeing others get better and make them feel more confident in their math skills.

Great tutor, provides step by step explanations! — I was very frustrated with my College algebra course. In my class, the professor would start the equation and before I could blink, the answer was on the board (magically). All of the important step by step information in the middle was not explained.
