I have been a tutor since 2004. I have worked for the Rush-Henrietta Central School, local tutoring services, as well as other online tutoring services. I have a degree in Industrial Engineering and have worked in the private and public sectors. I specialize in Math and Science but am approved by Wyzant to tutor other diverse subjects as well. So, if a student requires tutoring in several subjects there is a good chance I can tutor those subjects!

I'm an avid reader and an excellent writer, having had articles published in newspapers. I am also an editor and e-mail four articles a week to a mailing list of approximately 125 newspaper and magazine editors.

I taught him basic reading, basic math - adding, subtraction, etc. even how to tell time, and the difference between right and left. I devised games to teach him basic skills so he would fun while learning. I think out-of-the box.
