Tutoring Program

My tutoring service is designed to provide guidance about undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs. It is not available by e-Mail (since this channel is ambiguous and prone to spread misconceptions). The service is intented to help mastering knowledge and skills applied to solve real-life engineering problems, not to solve exams!

PLEASE NOTICE that an appointment is needed. The request has to be received at least 24 business hours before the meeting. Please select your preferred tutoring time slot in my academic agenda included below and contact me to confirm your selection.

Academic Agenda

Books

I am the author of several academic and fictional books and tutorials. These documents are available for free download from my book Store. Some of those them are included below.

Erasmus Mobility for Students

Below you will find the list of the Erasmus interchange agreements I am coordinating at this time.

Students participating in this program must send me a draft of the Propuesta de Estudios document for prior approval and validation. This document must include links to the academic program of every subject they want to enroll, both abroad and at the Univesity of Oviedo.

Once approved, they must send me the signed Erasmus Learning Agreement (ELA) document, it is available for download at the University of Oviedo's Erasmus Student Mobility Programme site.

The list of subjets to be taken abroad must include a minimum of 30 ECTS.

Please hurry up as the validation process may take several weeks!
