About Carlos


Bio

I see tutoring as an art. In order to be a successful tutor, one must learn how to engage a student not only in an intellectual level, but also on an emotional one. As a tutor I strive to not only improve your grades, but also your confidence and emotional proficiency. During my college career and subsequent graduation as Magna Cum Laude, I learned some of the qualities that make a successful student, individual and leader.

I see tutoring as an art. In order to be a successful tutor, one must learn how to engage a student not only in an intellectual level, but also on an emotional one. As a tutor I strive to not only improve your grades, but also your confidence and emotional proficiency. During my college career and subsequent graduation as Magna Cum Laude, I learned some of the qualities that make a successful student, individual and leader. I am a certified teacher in the state of Texas with 3 years of experience in teaching. My objective is to share my knowledge and passion for mathematics with every student, thus, incorporating a positive influence in their lives.

My degree is in Computational Mathematics from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. As an undergraduate, I tutored students in the mathematics advancement center, where I taught subjects that ranged from algebra to multivariable calculus and differential equations. I also worked as a Supplemental Instructor for calculus courses where I was in charge of helping multiple students clarify their questions.

My tutoring style is highly individualized. As I try to adapt to a specific student, I take into consideration many factors: Their demographics, personality and learning style to name a few. I like to ask questions in order to assess the student's strengths and weaknesses and develop a lesson plan from there.

Currently, I am only taking adults, high-school, and college students.

I look forward to help you achieve success in your academic endeavors!

Computer Programming,

Computer Programming

While an undergraduate student I took more than 15 credits in computer science as part of my Computational Mathematics degree. I know all the basic concepts of programming such as variable assignment, if statements, loops, functions, arrays and structures. The language I am most proficient in is FORTRAN (FORTRAN was designed specifically for scientific computations), but I can program in C, MATLAB or Java.
Fortran,

Fortran

While an undergraduate student I took a course on scientific computations in which FORTRAN was our programming language of choice. Since then I easily written over 30 FORTRAN programs where I have used subroutines, modules, functions and compiled using the make utility for Linux. If you need help in FORTRAN I can help you with anything from simple syntax to complex programs involving the compilation of many subroutines and modules.
Linux,

Linux

I started using Linux in 2009 as a Freshman in college. I immediately grew an interest in the operating system and became well versed in the command line. When it comes to Linux I can give a very thorough introduction about how to navigate the command line and use basic text editors. Since most of my FORTRAN and C programming was done in Linux, I could also help you compile and execute your code through the Linux terminal if you so desire.
MATLAB

MATLAB

MATLAB was the first programming language I was introduced to as a freshman. Although computer scientists argue whether MATLAB should be considered a legitimate programming language, I believe it's still a good tool to learn the basic concepts involved in general computer programming. I written dozens of programs in MATLAB and I have done plots, surface plots, and animations. MATLAB is a very powerful tool with many applications and intrinsic functions, but I can easily walk you through the basics of the language.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I hold a degree in Computational Mathematics. I took quite a few mathematics courses with intricate and complex equations. Usually at the root of such complex problems lie the basics of algebra. I have been studying algebra for more than 9 years, thus, I have been able to come up with many techniques and analogies to explain the concepts to struggling students.

Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is an exciting subject developed independently by both Newton and Leibniz in the 17th century. Calculus is basically the mathematical study of limiting processes. To understand calculus in a deep and comprehensive manner, one must get comfortable with the idea of a limit. Calculus I involves studying limits, definition of derivatives, anti-derivatives, definite integrals, differentiation techniques, and volume integrals. In Calculus II you will deal mostly with techniques of integration, although you are also introduced to the notion that a function can be represented as an infinite series. Calculus III is my favorite. It's when you will deal with multi-variable calculus and calculate partial derivatives and multiple integrals to calculate volumes, centers of mass in multiple coordinate systems.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

Differential Equations is essentially an equation that relates a function with its derivatives. There are many methods to solve for ODE's which include: Integrating factor, variation of parameters, separation, Laplace transforms, and characteristic polynomials. I am also proficient in Partial Differential Equations. This subject is even more exciting and includes: Fourier Analysis, Separation of Variables, Sturm-Liouville Theory, and Fourier Transforms, and much more...

Flexible

Second time with Carlos and my son is very comfortable with him. He utilizes his time very efficiently and my son does not feel rushed. He has also been so accommodating and flexible with my son's schedule. Finals are this week before Christmas break and we're requesting Carlos again. Thank you so much!!!
