My goal is the success of my students. Knowledge-Patience-Honesty

I am a "math geek" and a Christian father of two beautiful young ladies. I have passed a background check and it is on file. I would treat you and your child with the utmost respect. Math has ALWAYS been my favorite subject. Math just makes sense to me. However, I have developed methods with my children that teach math to people for whom it doesn't "just click". I love teaching math and other subjects to children and young adults. I have two daughters who also sometimes struggled wit... [more]


Algebra 1

I am an expert in Algebra 1. In 9th grade, I sometimes even helped the teacher teach the class and often helped other students to understand what she could not easily explain. It might be my favorite subject. My semester averages were 99+.


Algebra 2

Algebra II was my favorite subject until I reached AP Calculus. It remains one of my 3 favorite subjects for tutoring. High school averages for Algebra II were 97+. I try to explain "why" the answers are the correct ones. The goal is to help the student understand and develop a good "thought process" for approaching each type of problem.


Grammar


Geometry

Geometry is perhaps my favorite subject in which to help students. I won individual awards in high school math team competitions during my junior year due to my love of geometry. My semester grades in geometry were 97-100. Not everyone "sees" why certain rules apply to certain problems. Merely showing the student the answer is not the way to enhance performance. One must help them analyze the problem and find into which "mental bucket" it fits. My goal is to take all the formulas flying around in a student's head and help them learn to pick the correct one based on the information given. I look forward to helping your student improve their performance in geometry.


Prealgebra

I am an expert in Prealgebra. In 7th and 8th grades, I competed on a traveling math squad. It helped me develop a love not only for getting the correct answer, but learning the best technique for getting that answer quickly. My semester averages were 95-100.


Precalculus

I am a big fan of Precalculus, although it proves to be one of the more challenging subjects to teach/tutor. In my junior year, I competed on a traveling Precalculus squad. It helped me develop a love not only for getting the correct answer, but learning the best technique for getting that answer quickly. My semester averages were 97-100.

ASP.NET

I have been a software developer for almost 19 years. I have been working with C# and ASP.NET since version 1.1 and I'm a Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (3.5). I develop web applications for a large energy firm in Houston.


C#

I'm a Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (3.5) who currently develops web applications for a large energy firm in Houston. I have been working with C# for 5+ years. I began using C# developing business websites using ASP.NET (version 1.1 - 4). I'm proficient in VB as well, but I prefer working with C#.
