BS in Electrical Engineering

A California native, José was born in East Los Angeles. He grew up on various dairy farms in southern and central California before attending Yale University and earning a BS in Electrical Engineering. After graduating, José worked with students of migrant communities in Bakersfield, teaching math and science programs and discovering a love for education, as well as working with youth. José eventually moved to the bay area, where he tutored and taught test prep classes for mathematics before having joined the Maybeck community. José is interested in incorporating mindfulness, metacognition, and formative assessment within a classroom environment, as well as presenting mathematics to his students as a language and a form of art. 

José enjoys problem solving, rock climbing, literature, curating playlists, and exploring the bay area's electronic music scene.
