Bio

My goal as a teacher and tutor is to make learning a successful and rewarding experience so that my students become self-motivated lifelong learners. I am good-natured, light-hearted, and humorous with my students. My own enjoyment of the learning process and the subject matter is contagious.

My goal as a teacher and tutor is to make learning a successful and rewarding experience so that my students become self-motivated lifelong learners. I am good-natured, light-hearted, and humorous with my students. My own enjoyment of the learning process and the subject matter is contagious. By my conduct I demonstrate for my students a solid character and high values. In my relationship with them I am also a mentor when that is appropriate.
After my retirement as an engineer, I obtained a high school teaching degree and dedicated myself to tutoring. I am a skilled and experienced tutor of middle school and high school math with nine years of experience. My engineering studies included algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. I have a teaching degree: 7th through 12th grade with a concentration in mathematics. I have nine years of experience tutoring.
I was born in Costa Rica, the son of evangelical missionaries, and came to live in the United States when I was a teenager. After completing my engineering studies I came to Albuquerque where I pursued a career in solar engineering and science. I have three children and a loving wife. My hobbies include reading, writing, poker, and friendships.
I welcome the opportunity to be of service to you (or your child). I am professional, personable, and responsible. I can tutor in whatever location is most suitable to you: your home, a library, a public place. Feel free to contact me and we can begin.
