College Professor Computer Administrator Overall College GPA 3.8 (BS in Electrical Engineering, Masters in Computer Science, both from FAU) Allow me to share my success with you and your student(s). I really love teaching math and I have a lot of experience with it. I have developed a deep understanding. I explain concepts in multiple ways, using relateable examples, while verifying understanding, to ensure that the student really does "get it". I find the most rewarding part of my jo... [more]


Algebra 1

My educational background includes 4 years of University-level studies in Electrical Engineering which uses a tremendous amount of math. I was first exposed to Algebra 1 in Middle School, so you can confidently say I have had a lot of practice with it. And, I have learned that the more familiar you get with it, the easier it becomes. Algebra: the core of higher-level Math studies. As you know, Math builds upon itself. Algebra is absolutely essential to every higher-level math class. Unlock the power of Algebra for yourself and master this subject in record time!


Algebra 2

I earned a BS in Electrical Engineering and a Master of Computer Science, both of which required knowledge of Algebra 2 (as well as quite a few other higher-level courses as well). I am very versed in Algebra 2 and have tutored quite a few students in this subject, both through WyzAnt and otherwise. Algebra 2 explores exponents (in painstaking detail), as well as quite a few other concepts. Learn how to think in the abstract language of Algebra and master the material in record time! You will be an Algebra wiz before you know it!


Calculus

In order to earn my Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, my course load included not only Calculus 1, 2, and 3, but also many other challenging math courses including Differential Equations, Radar Systems, Thermodynamics, Control Systems and others. I graduated with an impressive 3.6 GPA. I went on to teach adult students at the University Level for over 2 years. I enjoy calculus and I especially love sharing the enlightenment of understanding that dawns on a student when they finally 'get it' for the first time. Calculus is said to be abstract. Instead of actually calculating an exact answer, oftentimes we calculate an approximate answer, because the exact answer is not computable. Or, there is so much more that can be said about a given relationship that deserves discussion and analysis. Calculus helps us understand our world in new, exciting ways. Give new meaning to the concepts of dividing by zero, evaluating limits and using rates of change for your own personal empowerment, enjoyment, and at times, amusement. Develop an entirely new understanding of mathematics, where you'll look at those simple mathematics problems in a whole new light, and see so much more in them that you never knew was there. I look forward to working with you.


Microsoft Excel

I have professionally taught Microsoft Office, including Excel, at the University level. I have also given workshops on Excel that span three days. I have created elaborate excel spreadsheets that process hundreds of lines of data from multiple sources simultaneously and present the information in an easy-to-understand, summarized format.


Geometry

My educational background includes a lot of math. In middle school, I took Algebra 1 and 2. In High School, I did Geometry, Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus before attending Florida Atlantic University for 4 more years of University-level math studies as I completed my Electrical Engineering degree. Courses such as Calculus 3, Statics and Dynamics build upon the Geometry I learned back in High School. I like Geometry. I understand Geometry. And, I can explain it to others. Allow me to unlock this valuable power for you, as well.


Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is a powerful word processor which can handle an impressive variety of data. Get the most of this tool by learning how to use it for real! I have taught classes at the university level where students learn not only how to use Microsoft Word, but how to get the most out of it. Learn how to implement automation with Word and interface with the other Office products, like Microsoft Excel or PowerPoint. Understand and utilize Word's built in formatting features to quickly get your presentation looking its best! Take advantage of the color schemes and themes to give all of your documents a common look and feel, no matter what Microsoft Office tool you used to create them. I look forward to sharing the power of Word with you.


Microsoft PowerPoint

As a University professor, I teach computer classes which include several entire chapters on Microsoft Powerpoint and how to use some of the more advanced features of this powerful presentation tool.


Prealgebra

I took Algebra 1 in Middle school and went on to take Geometry, Trigonometry, and PreCalculus in high school before attending FAU for 4 years as an electrical engineer. I have taken Calculus 1, 2, and 3, as well as plenty of other math-intensive classes such as Differential Equations and Control Systems. I am definitely qualified to teach preAlgebra. I have already been approved on this site for Algebra 1, Geometry, and Logic.


Precalculus

I have taught professionally at the University level and hold two degrees from Florida Atlantic University, with an overall GPA of 3.8. I have taken Calculus 1, 2, and 3 as well as plenty of higher-level mathematics courses in pursuit of my Electrical Engineering degree. I am definitely qualified to teach PreCalculus.


Trigonometry


SAT Math

The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. Almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions, so it is critically important to score your best on this exam. Most students take this test twice - during the spring of their junior year and again during the fall of their senior year. Having been accepted to several universities (I chose to attend Florida Atlantic University), I scored 660 on the math section alone. If I had to take the exam again today, after six years of college and decades of worldly experience, I would undoubtedly score even higher. I know how to take tests. Allow me to assist you in achieving your highest possible score on this very important exam.


Probability

I have taught at the university level for over two years and currently hold two degrees. Part of my Electrical Engineering degree required me to take Statistics, dealing heavily with probability theory and Probability Analysis. This is a prerequisite course for other engineering courses, which I have also completed. As an Electrical Engineer, we study noise, or at least account for it. We must predict the voltage (or amplitude) of a signal when it is unknown. We compute the power delivered by unknown signal sources. We translate a known signal into a mathematical model and then apply noise interference. We do quite a bit of analysis using probabilistic methods and analysis techniques. Probability concepts are central to this analysis.


ACT Math

The ACT Math test requires knowledge of basic formulas and computational skills but does not require knowledge of complex formulas or extensive computations. Personally, I have endured six years of University-level college in which I earned two degrees with an overall GPA of 3.8 on a 4.0 scale. I know how to take tests, like the ACT Math exam as well as much more difficult exams like Microsoft Windows Certification exams or University-level final exams. The ACT Math exam is a multiple-choice exam that almost encourages guessing; there is no penalty for incorrect answers. I can help you maximize your score on this exam by eliminating obviously incorrect answers and help you understand the concepts being presented and tested. Understanding the exam and the material it covers goes a long way to remove the fears and maximize your score!


Logic

Logical thinking is a huge part of troubleshooting. I have worked as a professional troubleshooter (IT professional) for over 15 years; diagnosing computer problems has become a specialty of mine. I have also worked on Unix systems and scripted and/or improved various programs to ensure they do what they were intended to do while being very resistant to any problems that could occur. Logic and logical concepts are a HUGE part of programming, troubleshooting, and math in general. In addition, my educational background includes 4 years of University-level studies in Electrical Engineering, which uses a tremendous amount of math and logic. I have even taught university-level courses including programming, database systems, and Operating Systems. I am highly qualified to teach Logic.
