Hello There! My name is Jose, and I'm committed to helping you understand the "mysteries" of math! I'm currently a Junior at the University of Houston. I'll be graduating in Spring 2021 with a Bachelor's in Mathematics and a minor in Manufacturing Systems.

I’ve been a tutor at a Math learning center for a little over a year now, so I've worked will all kinds of students and their Math problems. To be more specific, I tutored many students from 2nd-grade math up to Calculus (12th grade). Most of my tutoring experience has been with High students, which includes, Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Precal, and Calculus. Also, I work as a tutor at my former High School (I worked there this past year and intend to go back once school start). My students would come up to me bragging how they got a better grade than their peers after I tutored them. There was this time that I was invited to the Math department's meeting at the request of the Calculus teacher (who was my former teacher) so that the other teachers could meet me, and I could speak one-to-one with them and explain what topic most kids were struggling on. I was known as "The Math Guru" by my students within two months!

Aside from what I’ve said, I believe that math isn’t a hard subject, and I’m not saying this just because I enjoy it, some things don’t click for ALL students, and that’s where the problem arises. Some students tend to understand the topic one way, but when they're thought a different way, they get confused and start hating Math. My focus would be to find the perfect method for each student so he/she won't get confused.

Math is a fun/exciting subject when you learn tricks! Feel free to contact me at any time via Wyzant email, and we can work out a schedule that works best for your student — looking forward to working with you!

¡Hola! ¡Mi nombre es Jose y te quiero ayudar a comprender los "misterios" de lasMatemáticas! Actualmente soy un Junior en la Universidad de Houston. Me graduaré en la primavera de 2021 con una licenciatura en matemáticas y en
sistemas de manufactura.

Estoy como tutor en un centro de aprendizaje de Matemáticas por poco más de un año, por lo que he trabajado con todo tipo de estudiantes y sus problemas. Para ser más específicos, enseño a muchos estudiantes de segundo grado hasta cálculos (grado 12). La mayor parte de mi experiencia de tutoría ha sido con estudiantes de High School, que incluye Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Precal y Cálculo. Además,
trabaje como tutor en la High School de la cual me gradué (tutoríe este último periodo escolar, y pretendo regresar). Mis
alumnos de la High School se me acercaban presumiendo que obtuvieron mejores calificaciones que sus compañeros después de haber recibido mis tutorías, lo cual me daba mucha satisfacción. Hubo un momento en que me invitaron a la reunión del departamento de Matemáticas a petición de una de las maestras de Cálculos (que era mi antigua maestra), para que los otros maestros pudieran reunirse conmigo y así yo pudiera hablar uno a uno con ellos y explicarles en qué tema luchaban la mayoría de los niños. ¡Fui conocido como "El gurú de las matemáticas" por los estudiantes y todo esto en menos de dos meses!

Aparte de lo que he dicho, creo que las matemáticas no son difíciles, y no lo digo solo porque lo disfruto, algunas cosas no hacen click para TODOS los estudiantes, y ahí es donde surge el problema. Algunos estudiantes tienden a entender el tema
de una manera, pero cuando se los enseñan de una manera diferente, se confunden y comienzan a odiar las Matemáticas. Mi enfoque sería encontrar el método perfecto para cada estudiante y así no se confundan.

¡Matemáticas es un tema divertido/emocionante cuando aprendes trucos! Siéntase libre de contactarme en cualquier momento a través del correo electrónico de Wyzant, y podemos establecer un horario que funcione mejor para usted.

¡Espero
trabajar con usted!

Algebra 2

I’ve been working with many High School Algebra 2 students this past year, and I’ve helped a few college students along the way as well. Algebra 2 brings a lot of interesting topics for higher level math so if they plan on going higher, I would gladly help them with the foundations so they won’t struggle in the higher maths.
Calculus,

I’ve been with Calculus students for sometime now. Most of them have been college students but I’ve also worked with High Schoolers. I can teach them small tricks and increase their confidence in the class. Since I’m a Math Major, I’ve been working with calculus-based math courses for some time now so my Calculus skills are high.
