My name is Mr. Cesar Garcia. I was born in Los Angeles in February 5, 1977. I moved to Mexico when I was 5 yrs old and lived in Guadalajara, Jal. until I was 15 yrs old. I came back to the US and attended Bell High School (Class of 1997) in the city of Bell, CA. I received a bachelors in Computer Information Systems from California State University, Los Angeles. While in college, I worked as a Math tutor at Griffith Middle School for about 3 yrs. for a program named PAD. After I graduated from college, I worked for an after school program at LeConte Middle School in Hollywood where I was involved in different activities such as: afterschool homework tutoring, a math program, chess club, swimming, basketball, tennis, arts, etc. During the same period, I also worked for the GEAR up program for 2-3 yrs. at Griffith Middle School and Garfield High School doing math tutoring, summer programs, college workshops, field trips, etc. Working as a tutor and a mentor at different schools was a very satisfiable and enjoyable experience that I became really interested in teaching as a career, so I worked hard to earn a Single Subject Credential in Mathematics. I have been working as a Garfield Teacher since 2006, and it has been a wonderful experience so far. I always look forward to meet new students and share with them the language the world is written in, the language of mathematics. "The Discipline of Mathematics", "The Universal Language".
