I am a professional mechanical engineer with thousands of hours of teaching experience. I specialize in advanced math, science, and engineering subjects at the college-level but also teach English, writing, and music. My experience as a teacher spans over 15 years with a strong track record for success. I believe everyone, and I mean everyone, has the capacity to learn, and I do my best to take the subject material and make it as easy to understand and retain as possible. Unlike most teachers, I have strong industry experience, and therefore actually know how math and science ar... [more]

The ultimate purpose of an education is to cultivate your intellectual capabilities so that you may create the opportunities for your own self-fulfillment. Thus, an educational experience is one in which you are provided a challenging environment to explore, inquire, and achieve in your own way. My objective then as your tutor is to construct such an environment wherein these abilities may be maximally developed so that you are empowered to accomplish your specific goals. In doing so, I will... [more]

I have extensive experience tutoring Trigonometry both at the high school and college level. My patient and thorough approach is proven to be very effective with students. I have a long history of tutoring math and science at Austin Community College in addition to working as an engineer, so I can understand the application of the math and science. But more importantly, I want my pupils to learn the subject matter so they can solve problems on their own. I believe in a very patient approach that encourages the student to believe in their ability to learn the material and perform. So once [more]

I've taken PAP/ AP/ honors math courses from prealgebra through to calculus 3. Though trigonometry might be my favorite math class to tutor! Learning is a very personal experience, and as such I feel that it is best to tailor my tutoring style to fit the student's needs. That said, you really have to mesh well with your tutor, and I may not be the right fit for everyone. I know that there are many learning styles, and my own varies by subject. I also know that learning can be very frustrating; I found myself on more than on occasion feeling like the teacher wasn't answering the question I was [more]

I have taught and tutored Trigonometry for over 30 years. I have also been involved in the development of related curriculum and instructional activities. So often I find that students have been presented with steps and rules rather than the development of the why something works. Therefore, I take the time to develop concepts and understanding of the mathematics. I have tutored in the south Austin area for the past six years as well as provided instruction for home schooled students. I have taught the following elementary and secondary courses: 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th grade math, Algebra I, Pre- [more]

I have hundreds of hours of experience tutoring Algebra and Trigonometry as well as Precalculus and Calculus. I have worked at Austin Community College for two years tutoring math to ACC and University of Texas Students. After graduating High School I went right into the military and served in the United States Marine Corps. When I left the military I started college and began working on a degree in Engineering. When I first started I had to start back at practically the beginning and took se... [more]

I have been a math tutor for five years. I also worked as a middle school math teacher in a high needs school for one year. I believe in the UPS - check method of solving problems. That is: U - Understand the problem - what is being asked P - Plan how you are going to solve the problem S - Solve the problem Check - Check your solution, particularly for reasonableness I believe in giving the students the background so that they can understand how and why certain solution methods work. This... [more]

I have a Bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering from UT Austin and over 5 years of experience teaching Trigonometry. I spent 5 years as an in-school math tutor for all high school level math subjects (Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Precalculus, and Calculus) as well as physics and have tutored at several different schools in Austin, typically with students considered "at risk" academically. I attended the University of Texas at Austin and obtained my Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering. Although I decided that I enjoyed teaching much more than engineering, that didn't stop me from get [more]

I knew when I was a little girl that I wanted to be a teacher. When I was in 9th grade, the NJHS had a program where members were able to choose a teacher and teach their classes for a day. I choose my Math teacher. That was the day I decided I wanted to teach Math. I went on to get my teaching degree and taught Math for 6 years. Then I was a stay at home Mom for a while. During this time I was asked to tutor my niece in Algebra I. I realized how much I missed teaching and started my o... [more]

I've had a lifelong love of math and science. I recall when I first started school at a boarding school in Guatemala that we were asked to state what we wanted to be when we grew up. I stated I wanted to be a scientist. Well, I did, in a way. I became a computer scientist. But I'm interested in almost all sciences and mathematics. I started college as a biology major thinking I'd get a degree in botany. Through the course of study, I changed my major to mathematics, and I got a B.S. in mat... [more]
