I am a certified teacher with 20 years of experience specializing in Mathematics. In addition to my classroom teaching, I have also provided tutoring services to students ranging from middle school to college level. Teaching is my passion, and I derive immense satisfaction from empowering students with the knowledge to help them succeed. Witnessing my students conquer challenges, particularly in mathematics, fills me with fulfillment. I am eager to continue sharing my expertise with students who are dedicated to learning and achieving their goals.

I am a tutor who employs a strategic tutoring style that begins by assessing what my students already know, building upon their existing knowledge. By identifying their strengths and gaps, I effectively guide students toward mastering unfamiliar or challenging concepts. I ensure that learning is personalized and engaging, fostering a deeper understanding of concepts. Rather than simply imparting knowledge, I encourage active engagement and critical thinking, empowering my students to overcome obstacles and achieve academic success with confidence.

Over nearly two decades of teaching and tutoring, I've had the privilege of witnessing many of my students achieve professional success. They often return to me to express their gratitude and share how I contributed to their accomplishments. One memorable success story involves Clark Rivera, who I tutored throughout his high school years and who is now a practicing lawyer. Initially struggling with math, Clark would often approach our sessions feeling disheartened. However, each tutorial brought moments of clarity and understanding - his "AHA" moments that lifted his spirits and helped him grasp challenging concepts effectively. It's stories like Clark's that remind me of the profound impact tutoring (one-on-one) can have on a student's academic journey and future career.

My hobbies encompass a blend of relaxation, social interaction, and exploration. I enjoy unwinding with TV shows and staying connected with friends and trends through Facebook and Instagram. Exploring new culinary delights at restaurants and coffee shops is another favorite pastime, as it allows me to discover new flavors and enjoy quality time with loved ones. Additionally, I have a passion for traveling to immerse myself in different cultures and landscapes. These hobbies not only provide me with enjoyment and relaxation but also broaden my perspective and deepen my appreciation for diverse experiences.
