I firmly believe that keeping learning fun will enhance a student's performance in math. I have over 20 years of experience in engineering as a missile systems analyst b... [more]


Algebra 1

I love children and I love to see them excel in mathematics. All of my students I tutored have either gone from failing to excelling or have excelled even further in their Math courses. I have a degree in engineering and worked for over 20 yrs as a missile systems analyst


Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is an important step leading to Calculus and Trigonometry. I have always excelled in math and am an excellent teacher. I am always willing to help tutor and to do reviews before tests.


Geometry

Geometry is a part of every aspect of our lives. Bridging the gap between the theoretical and what we actually use in real life is essential in helping a student understand geometry. Proving theorems increases their critical thinking skills. I have more than 30 years of experience in tutoring and can help your child succeed.


Prealgebra

Preparation is paramount. Prealgebra prepares a child for all higher levels of math. Thus, it is important to grasp these skills and comprehend the concepts in prealgebra. Making math fun enhances learning. I am a patient tutor and will make sure your child understands all the concepts.


Precalculus

As an engineer I had to master Calculus and higher maths. I have over 30 yrs experience tutoring and more than 20+ years in engineering. I teach in a non-intimidating manner. I make sure that the child is grasping the concepts before moving forward.


Trigonometry

Trigonometry is used in our lives everyday. Showing children practical ways of solving trig problems while making the concepts fun have proven useful techniques for me in tutoring. I can help your child be at ease in grasping math concepts.


SAT Math

Standardized tests can be difficult. As a high performer on standardized tests I can help your child prepare for the SAT. Along with actual math tutoring I can help the student with the best methods to succeed on standardized tests. I am a patient tutor an not bound by time limits. If the child needs extra time in a session I provide that at no extra charge to the parent.


GED

I am a retired engineer who currently teaches secondary mathematics. I have tutored for over 30 years and am a graduate student in secondary education with a concentration in mathematics.


ACT Math

Standardized tests can be difficult. As a high performer on standardized tests I can help your child prepare for the ACT. Along with actual math tutoring I can help the student with the best methods to succeed on standardized tests. I am a patient tutor.


Elementary Math

Math should be fun because we use it every day of our lives. It is my firm belief that a student who gets a good foundation in math in the early years will excel throughout secondary and post-secondary school. I use a method of positive reinforcement and practical examples to help every student achieve their goals.
