Ernesto is a doctoral candidate in anthropology with degrees from MIT and the University of Texas at Austin. He has more than a decade of experience teaching and tutoring. As a high school student, he tutored fellow high school students in geometry, Algebra 2, precalculus, and Spanish. In college, he tutored middle school children in algebra and science through the MIT STEM program. During summer breaks, he designed and taught a curriculum of algebra and geometry for struggling middle school students in his hometown of Corsicana, Texas. Ernesto loves tutoring because every student is unique and therefore has a unique set of skills and challenges. Showing them that they have the power to achieve their potential has been incredibly rewarding for him. He has extensive experience with test prep for the PSAT, ACT, SAT, and GRE, having scored at or above the 90th percentile on all of the above. He was selected as a National Merit Finalist, scoring in the top 1% of high school students, and was offered admission to Rice, Harvard, and MIT based partially on these test scores. He has organized GRE study groups at MIT, and subsequently all of his study partners were accepted to such graduate schools as U of Wisconsin, Cornell, Berkeley, and U of Pittsburgh. He has been providing SAT tutoring services to students in the DFW Metroplex for the past two years and has been recognized for his strong commitment to his students and his creative and engaging teaching style.
