About Hector

I am determined to help students to succeed in the classroom! I graduated from Harvard College in 2008 and am looking to provide intensive and personalized academic tutoring to students from all backgrounds. Education serves as a critical tool to facilitate the development of future leaders that will revolutionize the world! As an experienced tutor, I work diligently with my students to nurture their gifts so that their educational experience is fun, engaging, and rewarding.

I have valuable experience tutoring students in critical subject areas such as mathematics, science, English, and reading comprehension. Additionally, I help students to prepare for required standardized tests such as the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR). I inculcate my students on effective critical thinking and problem solving strategies to improve their academic performance. Consistent practice and repetition tend to facilitate the biggest improvements observed in my students; therefore, I always provide them with additional opportunities to engage with their academic subjects outside the classroom. Furthermore, I believe in a collaborative and hands-on approach and will work with my students to identify their strengths and weaknesses and to help them improve their studying habits, test-taking skills, and time-management.

I look forward to connecting with students and helping them to improve their performance. Please contact me directly if you have any additional questions. Thank you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 believe that I am qualified to tutor in Algebra 1 due to my significant tutoring experience while teaching this subject. I have experience tutoring students to complete their end of course examination in Algebra along with preparing students to complete Algebra problems that were on standardized tests such as the STAAR examination. My experience in Algebra includes assisting students in the classroom and completing in-home tutorials as well. I am a believer in practice and repetition, therefore I encourage my students to work additional problems outside of their coursework to help them to gain a better understanding of the material.

Elementary Math

As an elementary math tutor, I work with students to build a solid foundation in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. I strive to make sure that my lesson plans complement what the student is currently learning in school and focus on his/her problem areas as well. My tutoring experience includes preparing students to complete required state exams such as the STAAR exam.

Geometry

I am qualified to tutor in Geometry as I have significant experience tutoring in this subject. In college, I worked as a tutor extensively in Algebra and Geometry, and prepared students to perform well on their final examinations and state mandated performance assessments. I prepared students to complete the mathematics portion of the MCAS and STAAR exam, and this included Algebra and Geometry. My tutoring methods involve explaining the critical concepts and providing my students with opportunities to work practice problems to increase their understanding and to increase their confidence.

Prealgebra

A strong foundation in PreAlgebra helps to lay the foundation to learn higher mathematics such as Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, etc. I work diligently with students in PreAlgebra to help them to understand and master the critical skills in this area. Learning effective strategies and having extensive opportunities to work problems are essential to succeed in PreAlgebra!

Great Tutor

Hector, has been tutoring my daughter for about 2 weeks now and I love how he interacts with her. My daughter tends to get really frustrated and then is done trying to learn, but he was able to get her back on track and ended the session with laughs. I'm so glad. We are blessed to be able to have him as her tutor. Thank you.
