GENERAL EXPERIENCE:
As an undergraduate student at Florida International University (FIU) from 2001 to 2005, I often found myself tutoring my study groups in several subject areas, from Biochemistry to advanced Calculus, which greatly helped my performance in each class. By my senior year, I obtained a teaching assistantship for a graduate level class on Computational Modeling of Cellular Systems, which was a challenging course that combined advanced math and cell biology for engineering st...

With the help of Haroldo I passed my college level biology class this semester. He is a great tutor I recommend him for anyone. He also works well with people with learning disabilities.

This semester, Haroldo has tutored me in biochemistry, differential equations, and physiology. I have had 19 lessons with him and I very much enjoyed them. He avoids giving me an answer directly and instead guides me through the steps I need to take to get there. Once I have figured it out, he asks me a conceptual question related to the answer to make sure I understand the ideas behind the equations that I used. He is patient with me when I do not understand the material and gives small hints in an attempt to make it clearer. He has always made an effort to be punctual so that we can make the most of our scheduled lesson time. I have done better this semester with his help than I would have without it, and I recommend his tutoring services to anyone who is considering working with him.

Haroldo helped me understand the principles that I did not comprehend and showed me clearly how to solve them. I feel much more confident in re-taking my exam as well as moving forward in my homework and in taking future exams.
- Isaac N. from Danville, CA
Haroldo is doing such a great job with my high school junior who finds Algebra 2 very challenging. Highly recommend. My son feels better prepared for tests now.
- Suzanne B. from Pleasant Hill, CA
Haroldo has sound knowledge in subjects like calculus and biology teaching college level classes. He communicates complex concepts in an easy to understand manner. Haroldo is very punctual, dedicated and personable. Highly recommend him as a tutor.
- Giridhar R. from San Ramon, CA
Harold spent the time to review the concepts my daughter was not understanding. At the end of the hour she felt very prepared to take a quiz on the topics and did well on the exam.
- Stephanie D. from Walnut Creek, CA
He taught me the basics of physics and helped me build my foundation in order to apply it to multi variable equations that involved critical thinking. Without his help, I wouldn?t be able to absorb the fundamentals of physics!
- Xavien A. from Vallejo, CA
Within relatively short period, Haroldo able to explain chemistry for my son 10th grade in High school. He is much more ready for final now. The last text, he perform much much better than before tutor period. Thank you
- Budiman H. from San Ramon, CA
Haroldo was on time, knowledgeable and patient. He was able to access the concept that challenging, teach the concept and give practice problems. We will definitely request Haroldo again.
- Helene O. from Alameda, CA
Haroldo does a wonderful job of breaking down the complexities of physics into understandable and enjoyable sections to learn. My child is thriving under his help and gaining a broad background in physics. He paces the subject just right so that it is not overwhelming. He is such a kind person and wants to help and see your child succeed. I recommend him highly.
- Christine P. from Lafayette, CA
He explained work and energy concepts as it relates to high school physics. A good tutor with strong ethics and conscious of student needs.
- Areeb D. from Danville, CA
It was everything I need for where I am and I feel he will be able to fulfill my needs to help me become bilingual, would recommend him to anyone. Thank you.
- Marchel E. from San Pablo, CA
I worked with Haroldo for about 6 months, and many times that was for six hours per week. He made sure I really understood physics, so by the time I went to go take a test, I knew what was going on. The way he made sure I understood was by using lots of examples. These examples were perfect because they helped me remember the material, and make sense of it. I felt so confident going into class because I knew I understood. Haroldo is very dedicated in making sure you get what you need to learn.
- Carolyn A. from El Cerrito, CA
Haroldo is always on time and very patient. My son has improved dramatically since Haroldo started tutoring him in honors chemistry. Best of all, my son now enjoys the topic and wants to take more science classes.
- Jonah L. from Oakland, CA
Haroldo is an exceptional tutor. Not only is he truly brilliant, he cares about his students and has a personal investment in their success. Our son regained his confidence and excelled after working with Haroldo. Our work with him was so positive, we are looking forward to working with him next year and over the summer for some prep work.
- Ed E. from Novato, CA
Haroldo helped my son's ACT test preparation. He helped my son to prepare for the science part of ACT, and he was great. He even came to our house the night before the test and the last minutes lesson really helped my son. My son was confident on the test day, and his test result was great. He got 35 on the science. We could not be happier with his services! Haroldo, You are great!
- Sachiko H. from Alameda, CA
Haroldo provides effective sessions that made a big difference in my son's understanding of the subject matter. He was making a significant impact on my son's understanding or test results in Chemistry during last half of school year. His Chemistry teacher was made a note on my son's test report with high score, "Where've you been hiding this skill?" I'm always impressed by how well prepared he arrives for his sessions and how thorough his explanations are. He will make sure my son to get the concepts in preparing for class, homework and tests. After each session, he writes me a detail email what he has taught my son and what he needs to prepare for class and next sessions. Now, Haroldo is tutoring my son for Preview AP Physics during summer to prepare for the coming AP Physics class in Junior year. I highly recommend Haroldo for anyone that needs the extra help! I am so appreciative of his support to my son.

For students struggling in biology, I highly recommend asking help from Haroldo. His extensive research experiences in stem cells, cancer, and neurobiology allow him to provide students with great insight to many difficult concepts. Haroldo never makes studying biology appear to be simply a matter of memorizing what's said in the textbook, which is often the wrong strategy that hinders students' success in biology classes. Rather, Haroldo always attempts to relate concepts to various real world applications, ranging from actual research/experiments conducted by biologists to interesting debates surrounding some questionable basis of sci-fi movies. His teaching style well suits the recent trend of college biology exams, which heavily test students' ability to interpret experimental results or to even come up with own experiments that test hypotheses. Therefore, Haroldo's approach to helping students is no doubt extremely valuable, allowing him to succeed as a tutor.
- Julie C. from Berkeley, CA
Haroldo was very helpful as a physics tutor. I really appreciated his tutoring style, rather than just giving me the answers, Haroldo would walk me through the problems in a way that I could easily replicate on exams. His test taking strategies and studying tips were also very helpful!
- Dina O. from Berkeley, CA
I highly recommend Haroldo for tutoring services. The fact that I'm spending time to write this review is testimony to my huge respect for his abilities. He is on time, comes prepared for each lesson, is extremely knowledgeable, and explains things well. Not only does our son greatly benefit from each lesson, but he gets along well with Haroldo. Haroldo also follows up with a detailed description of what was covered in the previous lesson, repeating what he told our son about how to be successful moving forward. He is a talented and responsible tutor. Thumbs up!
