About Mario

Teaching has been a passion for me for many years. I have taught business and technical seminars in the USA, Canada and several other countries. I also frequently teach a Bible class at a church. What people tell me they like about my teaching is that I frequently use practical illustrations rather than loading people with pure theory.

I started tutoring since my high school years; my math and physics teachers asked me to tutor my classmates in the afternoon, so I opened a class to tutor a handful of students at a time. During my graduate school (MBA) I mentored several undergrad students. It was fun! Let me tell you why I can help you in the following subjects:

MATH- I am an electrical engineer who graduated with honors. Mathematics is my strength; during my schooling I used to work as a tutor of probability and statistics for college students. I also worked for a university professor in his research writing computer code on math and statistics algorithms. I have two sons now in college, but my wife and I homeschooled them, and giving them a hand on math was fun.

SPANISH - I speak Spanish at a native level (born and raised in Mexico) and my job as International Marketing Manager has taken me to do business in 20 countries, most of them in Central and South America. My Spanish language does not come from books but from real conversations with people of multiple countries. (I'm also the author of several Spanish songs.) Hola, hablemos espaƱol!

BUSINESS - I hold a Master of Business Administration degree from Wake Forest University. But above that, I have been a manager at three Fortune 500 companies (Eaton Corp, Rockwell Automation, ABB Inc.) So I can tell you things not just by the book but from real experience.

If you have a need to learn your lesson from a different view than the traditional way, please let me help you.

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 an engineer with many years of professional experience using math in the real world. Teaching others comes naturally to me.

Algebra 2

I am an engineer with many years of professional experience using math in the real world. Teaching others comes naturally to me.

Marketing

I hold a Master Degree in Business Administration (MBA) from Wake Forest University, and my experience in business includes the following positions:
- General Manager - Procelecsis SA (Mexico)
- Business Development Manager - DataSouth Computer Corp. (Charlotte NC)
- International Sales Manager - Graseby Controls Inc (Greensboro, NC)
- International Marketing Manager - Rockwell Automation Corp (Milwaukee, WI)
- International Market Channel Lead - ABB Inc. (Jefferson City, MO)
- Sales Application Engineering Manager - TMEIC Corp (Roanoke, VA)

My experience in marketing, therefore, is very extensive. I have taught seminars on marketing at various locations in USA, Canada, Mexico and South America. Tutoring a student about marketing is something I can do with real case illustrations, as opposed to simple theory from books.

I will be delighted to tutor students on the aspects of Marketing and related business subjects.

Piano

I took piano lessons for seven years as a child. Since then I have played at recitals, weddings and other events. I have also composed several songs. I would be happy to tutor piano students.

Spanish

I speak Spanish at native level, and have college degree from a top university in Mexico City. Since I have traveled for business through most countries in Mexico, Central America, South America, and Spain, I have a broad view of the minor differences between the Spanish terms of each country.
