#### Education

Undergrad, University of Texas at San Antonio Graduate; Masters, University of Texas at San Antonio Graduate; PhD, University of Texas at Austin#### Experience

*Mathematical Muscle*I received my bachelors and masters in mathematics from the University of Texas at San Antonio. I finished there with a 4.0 GPA while in the graduate program. I then was rewarded with the South Texas Fellowship to attend the University of Texas at Austin as a doctorate student.

I have several years experience as a college professor. I have learned in that time how to present information so that it is not only understandable but meaningful to the persons learning. I not only understand the roots of mathematics but where it all eventually leads at the highest levels.

My approach to tutoring is the same as the approach even the greatest mathematicians use. And that is to break new problems down until they look like old problems. The reason students have trouble with math is they don't see the connection between two problems that might have different variables and numbers but are solved in exactly the same way. Once they see the connection their whole attitude towards the subject changes dramatically.
