Bilingual Mathematics focused STEM educator with 4 years of experience and a passion for learning.

Methodology

My goal as a tutor is to use mathematics to instill a passion for learning that the student may use to explore other new and exciting subjects, math related or otherwise. I approach each lesson with an open mind, seeing where the student is, their level of understanding and the methods they choose to work out each problem. From there I correct any misstep, and clarify the correction so that they may understand the logic behind the right procedure.

Background

I have a BS in Mathematics as well as teaching and tutoring experience in math, physics, Spanish, yoga and stretching.
10 years of managing and bar tending in some of NYC’s top bars and restaurants.
2 years of teaching yoga and stretching.
Volunteer tutor at South Bronx United- worked with young, diverse students with a passion for soccer.

Felipe tutored me for two college level physics without calculus courses. I found Felipe very thorough with his student engagement by taking time to explain fundamental formulas and demonstrating empathy by breaking down complex problem solving instead of just sharing the solution. Felipe not only reviewed homework assignments during our weekly sessions, he also reached out pre and post examination to evaluate mistakes and provide instruction on how not to make them in the future. These post examination sessions paid dividends for my GPA during the course finals. I found Felipe very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and more importantly, he could translate a foreign subject matter in morsels I could understand, essentially tailoring the course lessons to my learning curve.

Felipe is the kindest and most patient!!! As someone who wasn’t great at math as a child, its wonderful seeing how Felipe is helping my children overcome similar barriers in their understanding of mathematics...and how he makes it fun for them! I wish I had
someone like him when I was younger as under his tutelage, my children no longer procrastinate and dread that part of their homework. He’s also a certified yoga teacher so he has a bunch of different techniques to help calm my kids when they get frustrated. Highly HIGHLY recommend!
