My name is Ferdinand. I graduated magna cum laude from Virginia Commonwealth University with a degree in Computer Engineering and minors in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics.

I have a passion for math and science; a passion that has led to excellence. I understand what it feels like to be a student and beating around ground-breaking concepts that simply needed to be explain another way. I worked as a tutor at Virginia Commonwealth University's Campus Learning Center for 2 years where I led and facilitated group and individual tutoring sessions. My subjects covered all levels of math, science and electrical engineering. I make sure my students understand the "how" and "why" of the material we cover. Because of the action guiding principles I give to my students, many are able to solve problems on their own and reason about their approaches after a few sessions.

My goal is to help students understand the material and gain critical problem solving skills that will decrease their frustration and ultimately lessen their reliance on external help. Feel free to reach out with any concerns or to schedule a session!

So knowledgeable, patient, and great at explaining hard concepts

Ferdinand is helping me with my HLA class in college. He is so patient, is great at explaining all of the hard concepts, and really knows his stuff! He is so nice and accommodating and goes above and beyond to be available and helpful. I went from getting Cs and not understanding the subject at all to raising my grade to an A and now I feel like I know what I'm talking about. Every project that he has helped me with so far I got 100! He is a great tutor whom I highly recommend!

Very helpful!

Ferdinand really helped me with understanding so many concepts and he cleared everything out. He is very patient and he explained things until he makes sure I understand them.

Knowledgeable and flexible

My son was off to a bad start in Algebra 2, but Ferdinand was able to clear up some areas of confusion for him during their first lesson today. He is feeling a lot more optimistic and looking forward to the next lesson. Thanks!
