I love learning, and like to share my passion for learning with other people. I believe that the key to success is truly understanding the material, not memorizing facts for the short-term, which is reflective of my teaching style. I am the go-to guy for my friends when it comes to homework, and I'm always happy to help them! Before taking on tutoring as a job, I tutored my peers through my high school's Math Honor Society.
I am currently taking AP Calculus BC (equivalent to Calculus 2), and have received credit for College Algebra, scoring 78 of 80 possible points. I have a very strong interest in math and an excellent understanding of the subject.
|Hobbies:||My greatest passion is running. I have been on my school's cross country and track teams for four years. I ran the ING Miami Half Marathon in 2012 and 2013... I love it! When I'm not running, I'm usually volunteering at races, helping out with race-day registration, packet distribution, or giving out food.
I am President of my school's Salsa Club: I love salsa music and salsa dancing. My radio is always set to 92.3 (Zeta 92: Salsa y Mas!)
I also like playing basketball and hanging out with my friends.
I've been working with Raul for SAT prep and i feel like I've improved my test taking skills. An amazing tutor, very intelligent, and all around general knowledge of how to do well on the tests.
Raul has proven to be extremely resourceful and mature for his age. He is in fact an excellent math tutor as he master the subject perfectly but more importantly he is also an outstanding mentor. I therefore recommend him without hesitation as the time he spent tutoring Algebra to my daughter, he served as an example of a someone aspiring for a great future given of his dedications to academics.
Raul is very professional, patient, and knowledgeable. My son has greatly improved after working with him. We are very happy with him and highly recommend him.
