About Anthony

I am from Las Cruces and excelled in science, math, and art throughout school. I completed a Bachelor's of Science degree from NMSU in the subject of Chemistry. I am now in the final classes of my Master's of Art in Curriculum and Instruction, also from New Mexico State. I have taught in two charter schools in New Mexico as the teacher of record, as a substitute teacher in many of the schools in the Las Cruces district, as well as tutoring at NMSU, and with private students. I have experience working with students who are learning English here in New Mexico and also when I taught English in Seoul, South Korea. Though I am more expert in math and science, I am a fluent writer and orator and can help with reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, speaking and listening skills for students in English/Language Arts courses. I also have experience teaching art and martial arts/personal defense.

My schedule is flexible everyday. I regularly travel to the Alamogordo area and would be willing to schedule sessions with pupils as far as Cloudcroft or Tularosa (or further if you talk me into it). I would also accept pupils as far from Las Cruces as El Paso, Hatch, or Deming. My rate can be negotiable depending on distance, lesson length, subject, and other parameters.

I have three years experience teaching as a certified math and science teacher in the state of New Mexico. I also have experience working with private students, small groups, and large groups in tutoring and project based learning. I have taken math through differential equations; I feel comfortable tutoring through intro level Calculus (limits, derivatives, and integrals of functions in one variable).

I enjoy helping my students succeed in subjects in which they thought they were helpless or worthless. I am a believer in the concept of brain plasticity, and thus am convinced that nearly anyone can learn nearly anything that they desire so long as they practice at it consistently with good guidance. In addition to any subject matter I try to teach a "hidden curriculum" of self-advocacy, positive self worth and image, that despite shortcomings everyone can do what they need and want to do, and that life can be absolutely wonderful with the right knowledge and attitude.

He is knowledgeable and helpful.

He taught my son pre-calculus. Helped him understand the topic and prepared him for the upcoming quiz/test. We had him for the second time and my son already feels comfortable working with him. We will definitely recommend him to the other students who are struggling with maths in order for them to be achievers.
