Personal Statement

Every student is different and has different needs. As an experienced Math Professor, I am able to utilize several different methods to help any student learn the material, which translates very well for in person tutoring.

Currently, I am pursuing my Doctorate in Philosophy of Math Education at ASU. I do my best to stay current with the best teaching and tutoring strategies and adapt as best I can to my student's needs.

I'm not a boring tutor, and I absolutely hate going ONLY by the boo...

Reviews

My son enjoyed working with Rolando, he presented school material in a way that my son could understand. My son enjoyed working with him.

Rolando was very patient with my husband, who has cognitive issues. Rolando set up a homepage and spent time going over the computer apps that my husband wants to use on a daily basis. We will have Rolando come again in a few weeks to review the material Joe needs to hear again and answer a couple of other questions. I consider the session well worth it.

He taught me the different rules of derivatives such as product and quotient rules. He is very patient and teaches you thoroughly so that the following information is easier to take in.

Rolando came last minutes to help our daughter for Physics Exam she had today that she was sure she was going to fail. However, after just an hour and a half, she woke up confident she will get an A. When I asked her what she though, she said he was very good at describing things to make them, make sense, he was funny and extremely smart. We highly recommend him to others.

My son has Op-positional Defiant Disorder (O.D.D.) accompanied with A.D.D. and A.D.H.D, which can be very frusterating for teachers, especially those who are not educated about the behavioral disorder. It's kind of like a whole lot of teenager-itis. You have to be very aware and acknowledge ALL of the little accompllishments that are made no matter how small they may seem to you or I and praise the child for those accomplishments - and then slowly after doing this they will allow you in their world to make suggestions with out just shutting you out completely and becoming cold and angry. It truly is an art and practice dealing with kids and people that suffer with Op-positional defiant disorder. Most people try to treat and teach them like the norm get VERY frustrated and just give up. It's is very sad and disappointing. It was very refreshing to meet Rolando who immidiately came into our home and met with our 16 year old son (who we've been told by great therapists has a 5th degree black belt with his ODD.....Lol) They immediately started talking about things that interested both of them - sports, music, video games, etc.... Rolando showed interest in Jacobs interests and also expressed concern and frustration with mine when I explained how Jacob got left behind when he had to switch schools in the middle of Eighth grade during Pre-Algebra and then in Ninth grade he was placed in Algebra 1-2 with only half the knowledge he needed from the previous year. So our worst fear came to pass - even after tutoring at the school, with other students and even with a professional Tutoring school he Failed both semesters of Algebra 1-2. He became labled as the problem student - the teacher started sending him out of the classroom, giving him referrals to the principal, etc... because he didn't understand the work and she got tired of trying to "reach" and "teach" him. Rolando has been patient and kind, and encourages Jacob. He knows how to communicate with my son in a way that gets the point across and also gives Jacob a feeling of empowerment especially when he gets the answer correct or is on the right track. Rolando doesn't allow him to be lazy but he also knows how to keep him from building walls. Rolando makes sure that my son KNOWS that HE CAN DO IT and that HE IS SMART and that Jacob

He helped me learn a bit of coding for my final in my web design class. Thanks to him I was able to finish my homework on time even though I contacted him a day before. Thanks you!
- Fabiola M. from Phoenix, AZ
Rolando is a great tutor, he teaches concepts in a very simple and relatable manner. He makes something that's always been intimidating to me very easy to understand.
- Brian N. from Phoenix, AZ
I am an older student and math has never been my forte. Rolando was patient with me and so approachable. He helped me more in 60 minutes than any of the math professors ever have. I will definitely come back for more help.
- Elisabet H. from Phoenix, AZ
Rolando is very mindful of his students abilities to achieve well. He knows everyone is different and learns different and takes that into consideration when teaching. He is very understanding which allows him to invest a great deal of effort and time in order to get you where you need. His knowledge in math has allowed me to grasp concepts that I was taught, without careful explanation, years ago. What stands out the most is probably his desire to help students be successful in math.
- Yesena G. from Mesa, AZ
Rolando adapts to his student's abilities and applies much-needed patience. Additionally, he sees areas of opportunity for improvement while using time effectively. Great experience, look forward to continuing tutoring sessions with him. Thank you, Rolando.
- Irvia R. from East Hartford, CT
Rolando helped me to understand each problem by asking questions to see what I knew and then thoroughly explained the correct answer. What was extremely helpful about Rolando was that he asked me what my thought process was on a particular problem and then explained to me the areas where I was wrong. His schedule is VERY flexible and I had no issues arranging times to meet. I would definitely recommend him to any student who is struggling in math.
- Sarah C. from Tempe, AZ
Rolando is a conscientious tutor and was good at communicating complex subjects in a way that was always easy to understand. He was also flexible with scheduling and took the initiative to find a good meetup place for our session. The only reason I'm not giving him the full five stars was that some of his knowledge of PHP was a little out-of-date, but it definitely speaks to his intellect and adaptability that he was a great help regardless.
- Scott K. from Phoenix, AZ
Rolando has been working with our daughter to wade through her Trig/PreCalc homework. This is very challenging material and Rolando has been able to lift the weight and make the learning more fun. He has helped to raise test scores which is huge. Additionally, he is easy to communicate with and schedule appointments. We highly recommend Rolando.
- Lynda Y. from Phoenix, AZ
Rolando was a great tutor assisting me to better understand the mechanics of .php and the relationship with MySQL. He was able to take what seemed like a complex concept and explain it in a straightforward manner. He was prompt for our session.
- David E. from Phoenix, AZ
My daughter is not a big fan of math but Rolando was able to find a way to get her interested in what she was learning. My daughter kept talking about her next assignment and how excited she was to have Rolando come back again! Thanks Rolando!!
- Anna C. from Phoenix, AZ
Rolando is very helpful. He showed that he was knowledgeable about the subject, and he also was very patient since English is my third language. He is also easy to reach, and he is willing to work through Skype in case I need extra help.
