Cornell University


Hailing from Mexico, Jorge has always had a passion for learning and sharing his knowledge in mathematics. He achieved 19 out of 20 in the Math section of the French Baccalauréat, was selected as the only student in his lycée to participate in the math concours cénéral, and got perfect scores on the math section of the SAT I, as well as on both Math 1 and 2 of the old SAT subject tests. His outstanding academic prowess led him to graduate from Cornell University with a degree in Mathematics, where he consistently appeared on the dean’s list.

After a brief stint in graduate school, Jorge took the decision to move to Japan, where for the past six years he has been teaching IB HL mathematics. In addition, for the past 3 years, he has been working directly with the International Baccalaureate Organization as an examiner and moderator. Having tutored students of multiple levels and countries since his high school days, Jorge brings a wealth of experience and expertise to his teaching, allowing students to grasp challenging mathematical concepts with confidence.

Outside of academics, Jorge cultivates a diverse range of interests, including reading manga and novels, learning new languages (5 and counting), and lately, making images through AI. On a slightly more adventurous note, he has ridden the unicycle since his time in university and can sometimes be seen riding one on the streets of Fukuoka.
