My teaching method is very concept- and example-based. The goal is to understand the core concepts and be able to build knowledge from them. We will use easy examples to explain the core concepts of each lesson. Once they are clear, we will move on to more challenging problems.
For students who have a good understanding of the material but need help with the applications, I can also accommodate a purely problem-based style of tutoring.
I like to keep the tone of the class casual and friendly so students feel comfortable asking any questions.
I like making evident that a huge part of student's struggle is simply bad teachers. I enjoy the moment when student's realize that they can actually succeed in a given course. Finally, it is great to see how student's grades and understanding improves thanks to my help and their hard work.
Kiko truly enjoys tutoring. He always tries to relate everything to how I might use it in my future career which makes it a lot more interesting to me. He explains everything super clearly and helped me understand everything a lot better. He even switched to zoom tutoring when we all had to start staying at home. Best tutor I've ever had!
I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering, a degree in Physics and a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics. I am currently pursuing my PhD.
I teach my own Calculus class at Arizona State University, Tempe.
