##### About Ruben

Before I started high school, I hated math because I did not understand it. I would always hide or pretend I was writing something on my notebook so that my teacher would not ask me to solve a math problem. However, my low grades showed that I knew nothing about the subject. When I started high school, I looked for help and after intensive sessions of Math tutoring, I was able to understand my math teachers. At the same time, I was expanding my knowledge in math and developing new skills. I acquired so much knowledge that I was able to help other classmates who were also struggling.

When I began my sophomore year, I decided to attend tutoring to gain more skills. My goal was to help others. I started my junior year, and I started tutoring freshmen and sophomores. Math became so simple that I took three advanced Math courses during my junior year, and I got As in those classes.

Furthermore, I got a perfect score in the math state exam, and I only missed a few problems in the standardized tests PSAT, SAT, and ACT. I am a high school honor graduate, and I am now enrolled at UTRGV formerly known as UTPA. I am studying Math to become a high school teacher and continue helping students become better.

My goal is to help you understand the material along with ways to help you become a better student, not just in Math but in general. Tricks and shortcuts will also be taught, if necessary, when working out a problem on paper or when using a calculator. Thank you.
