About Blas

I've successfully taught 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders in various topics: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus. I am also knowledgeable of Calculus, Statistics, Probability, Linear Algebra, and Operations Research, as those are topics I studied in college and fell in love with. I've tutored a number of students throughout my career, and they've all said that I am "the best tutor I've ever had." One of my formal students told me once that she never liked math until she met me. My passion for math, and my positive attitude towards education gets through to my students. I am one to build up the confidence of my students. My students usually tell me that they feel more comfortable doing math after they've met me.

I use socratic questioning to build the knowledge of my students in a way that they can independently arrive at solutions. After a tutoring section, the statement from my students will be, "I learned how to do ..." instead of, "My tutor helped me do ..." My goal as a tutor is that my students acquire the necessary skills to work independently and be successful at it. I will guide my students through problems, modeling how to work on the problems to arrive at the solutions. I will then let them work independently on problems to assure that they've acquired the skills necessary to excel in the classroom.

In summary, my tutoring sections consist of:
1-Asking questions to assess the knowledge a student has.
2-Modeling problems for my students to use as guide.
3-Independent work to check for progress.
4-Corrections to assure mastery of skills.

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.

Algebra 1

I've taught Algebra 1 for the past 4 years in a high school. I've attended several professional development sessions to be even more effective at my profession. I've had private students going from being at risk of failing the course to passing with a grade they've never obtained before in a math class.

Students usually tell me that if they had me as a teacher, they'd never hate math the way they do, and how they actually don't think math is a boring or difficult class because of my ways of teaching it.
