PhD teaches Math, Computer, Testing, Education, Economics

I am a PhD who has taught Math, Computer, Placement testing (e.g. SAT, ACT, etc.), Education, Astronomy, and Economics. I have taught in colleges, high schools, homes (private tutoring), and other venues. I am an academic and a Christian who enjoys helping students reach their goals as they enjoy the learning process. I believe in being a "guide on the side" rather than a "sage on the stage." When the student engages in real world problem solving, learning becomes more meaningful and lasts ... [more]

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a doctorate in Education. My studies included a deep understanding of how students of all ages learn best. I have also taught various subjects for Mathnasium, Club Z, and Sylvan, in which we focused on K-6 students. I currently teach 5 and 6-year-olds part time for Waterstone.


Guitar

I have been playing the guitar and performing for audiences for 50 years. I have tutored novice guitar players once in a while for over 30 years. I have excellent pitch and I come from a family of musicians.


Study Skills

As a teacher for 25 years, it has been very important for my students to know and understand study skills. As a PhD, I have had to develop study skills for myself to maximize my learning. I would be glad to tutor anyone to improve their study skills.


Theater

Having acted and directed in a number of plays, I have a heart for theatre and would love to share this with others. Each one of us is gifted with unique skills; the challenge of a theatre tutor is to help the student identify and develop the unique gifts that they can bring to a performance. I have taught children's theater for the past three years.


Discrete Math

I am well versed in sets, functions and relations, matrix algebra, probability, graph theory, logic, mathematical induction, and algorithmic thinking. I am also familiar with Boolean algebra, linear programming, and number theory. I think of discrete mathematics simply as the mathematics that is necessary for decision making in non-continuous situations. I have taught math for 25 years including teaching college Finite Math. I have a master's degree in Operations Research.


Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Outlook for about 15 years and I have been teaching for 30 years. I have a PhD in Education. For teaching Microsoft Outlook, I would start with how to: Create and manage file folders; Add and use contacts; perform Calendar basics; Use Fonts, hyperlinks, and spell check; Recall and replace sent messages; Send automatic replies when out of the office; Send and open attachments; Use instant search; and a host of other functions.
