Alfonso is awesomeeeee! Not only a cool dude, but he helped me absolutely ace my math quiz. He responds really quickly, and is extremely flexible when scheduling. Cannot recommend him enough. 😁💯Sep 19, 2018Verified
Alfonso is a good communicator and made it very easy to set up a lesson. He was punctual and pleasant. My son was very happy with the session and was able to (enthusiastically) tell us what he learned and worked on. He usually forgets but he liked Alfonso’s understandable approach. We will be continuing with sessions on a regular basis.Oct 12, 2017Verified
Alfonso is an amazing tutor and really helps break down the material. I went through a lot of tutors that didn't explain things very well but then I found him and I've done really well in my math class.Feb 23, 2017Verified
Alfonso is the BEST!!! Not only is he fantastic at tutoring, but he is also very respectful and super nice. This was the first time I have ever hired a tutor, and was a bit hesitant at first...all I can say is I'm SO happy I chose him. (Tutoring was for MATH 1350-Lone Star College)Feb 22, 2017Verified
Alfonso was very professional, patient and courteous. He made sure i understood each topic before moving on the next and used real life examples that would help me understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He tutored me on business finance.Oct 4, 2016Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor of Science degree, a Master's of Science, and an MBA. I have worked as a writing tutor at a community college, and I was a math tutor for the athletic department at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) when I was in graduate school.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After turning in a research paper in college, the instructor was so impressed with my writing that she asked me if I would be available to tutor writing. That was the first time I tutored for pay. I first started tutoring math when I was in graduate school. Now, I do math tutoring because its a very helpful service to people. They are thankful for the help.
