Excellence Mathematics Tutoring - AP & IB Expert
I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from MIT with a Concentration in Philosophy at Harvard University. I also possess a decade of experience as a teacher of High School Mathematics at some of the best international schools in North America, Europe and Asia.
Besides Mathematics, I have a myriad of interests such as languages, fine arts, opera, archaeology, wellness, scuba diving and travel, among others.
I am fully bilingual in English and Spanish. Furthermore, I have reached an intermediate proficiency level of French, Italian and German. Regarding my tutoring, I feel comfortable teaching Mathematics in both English and Spanish.
I particularly enjoy one-on-one tutoring because it gives me the chance to taylor my lessons to the specific needs of a student. My preference is to build knowledge from first principles and to encourage reasoning and independent thinking. I consider it is also essential to create lasting study habits, which will serve well beyond a single Mathematics subject. Fundamentally, I like to develop a mentoring relationship with my students.
It is extremely rewarding to see the sparkle in a student's eyes when they master a new topic. I also find it uplifting to witness how students gain self-confidence in dealing with mathematical concepts.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I assess the level of Mathematics of the new student and then set out clear objectives to achieve and a defined timeline. In my initial assessment I take into consideration the student´s performance in school, their strengths, special difficulties on certain topics, capacity to concentrate on academic work, and ability to study independently.
