About Jaime

I have a PhD from University of Texas at El Paso. I have taught at UTEP and at the El Paso Community College. I love bringing in videos, scale models, toys, tools, and any other means that will help the students watch and understand the concept.

I explain the concept, and then bring in a real-life example, a video, a toy, or any other means that will illustrate the concept. I've been a Geologist for more than 20 years, and when you relate it to people's lives (how caverns form, why volcanoes erupt, where does plastic, and jewelry come from, etc.), the connection is immediate, and crystal clear. When abstract concepts can be brought in a simple, tangible manner, the learning process stops being a hassle, and becomes curiosity, and hunger for information.

I struggled too with math. I've been where you are, and I can share with you how to remove that anxiety, and help you make math an easy, very easy subject.

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.

Discrete Math

As a Geophysicist, I am strongly involved with math every day, from basic Arithmetic, all the way to advanced Calculus. By being an active math user, it has become very easy for me to find every day examples of its applications. Additionally, it is very easy for me to communicate difficult/complex concepts to an understandable level for all audiences. Therefore, because I use it and understand it, because I find it every day in my life, and because I am an excellent communicating the concepts, I am an excellent math teacher.
