About Antonio

I believe that a student develops a love of learning from a teacher who has a love for teaching. As a graduate from Harvard University in Electrical Engineering, I have always had a passion for math and science and for sharing them with others. I had a great time tutoring friends and younger kids in math throughout high school. I even spent my first summer in college working as a math teacher's assistant at a public school in South Central LA. I helped many struggling students achieve great grades in their math class, one thanking me personally for helping him get his first A in math ever. I try to explain concepts using down-to-earth terms and examples with visual aids whenever possible. My goal is to make the individual topics not only easy to understand but also intuitive to the point that my students can do more complex problems without much more effort.

My specialty is in math, but I tutor science and economics as well and provide standardized test preparation. For those students applying for college, I also offer personal essay review and advice.

I am currently an engineer in the Federal government having been thoroughly background checked for my position. I have a standard 9-5pm work day, making me available for nights and weekends.

I look forward to working with my future students and to spreading my passion for math and science with them!

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.

Electrical Engineering

I have a degree in Electrical Engineering with experience in multiple disciplines. I have worked in photonics, photovoltaics, circuit design, energy, and MEMS. This includes academic, research, and professional contexts.

Elementary (K-6th)

During my senior year of high school, I spent a month as a full-time volunteer tutoring elementary school students at a domestic abuse shelter. After my first year in college, I got a summer internship at a charter school in South Central LA as a teacher's assistant for high school math and elementary general education. I have a lot of experience tutoring kids, and my youth allows me to come up with new ways to keep kids' attention and relate the concepts to them as clearly as possible.
