About Fernando

Hi parents and students,

I would like the opportunity to utilize my teaching experience to be able to tutor and help increase student achievement in the areas of mathematics, business, and computer technology. As a teacher, my responsibilities included planning, organizing, preparing and delivering instructional lessons to students.

As a tutor, I know I can have a greater impact as I would be working with you or your student on a one-on-one basis. As a mathematics teacher, I gained valuable skills needed to help students develop critical thinking skills through problem solving in mathematics. These critical thinking skills will eventually help students pass math courses and and state exams taken in a school setting.

In order to understand the needs of a student learning mathematics we have to first, identify any learning gaps, I will do an initial assessment of the student's understanding on the subject. Then, I will identify the needs of the students based on the results. I will come up with a plan addressing specific areas in math where I've identified learning gaps. I will make sure to share the results with you and together we will coordinate to provide you or your student with the time needed to practice and study those skills. I am confident that once those learning gaps are closed the student will make sense of the subject and gain the confidence they need to succeed.

I have made it a goal of mine to embrace the use of technology and take advantage of the tools offered in order to address today's fast changing world. I have seen an increase in the use of ipads, smartphones, and computer programs over the years in the classrooms. I am familiar with many programs used to teach math, business and computers and will try to make use of such technology in our sessions.

I look forward to working with you in the advancement of your academic success.

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 am certified in 4-8 Math.

Soccer

I have a U.S soccer E License to coach soccer in Texas. In addition I have coach soccer for 3 years for the Segundo Barrio Futbol Club. I played varsity soccer while I was in high school. I have a great understanding of the motor skills that are necessary at different age levels in order to learn the skills.

STAAR

The STAAR test is a standardize exam that students are given at the end of each year. I have worked for the El Paso Independent School district for 5 years and have helped students achieve passing scores in the STAAR exam. My focused area is in mathematics, but I also helped in science and reading. Working with students on a small group basis allows me to focus on the specific standards that students usually struggle with and had difficulty obtaining while they were in class.
