About Felipe

If you are looking for a patient, knowledgeable math tutor, who can help you master any level of math (middle school/high school/college), please contact me. I have many years of teaching experience, and I can help you learn with useful tips and tricks to help you understand even the most complex problems. I have graduate degrees from UCLA (M.Sc., Ph.D. in Engineering), and I have worked as an engineer, but my first love is teaching.

I am licensed to teach math (middle school, high school) in Virginia. I passed the Praxis II Mathematics Test (Content Knowledge) in April of 2010 with a score that ranks within the top 15% of all test takers who took the assessment in previous years. I can tutor in a multitude of subjects including but not limited to Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Geometry and Statistics. I can also tutor students in higher level math and engineering classes.

I am bilingual in English and Spanish, and can teach students in both languages. I enjoy working with people of all different backgrounds and cultures, and can work with students of all ages.

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.

Having trouble with calculus and he is a huge help!

I have not taken a calculus class for a few years, so when I switched majors and found out that i had to take yet another advanced calculus class..it was a bit stressful. Can say I was more than a bit lost on the first day of class having to relearn quite a bit. Felipe has been a great tutor and a lot of help. Brings extra practice problems to go over material, I've been struggling with. Very pati
