Algebra 1

I currently teach all levels of algebra (beginning, intermediate, and advanced) on a college level. I used algebra as a tool for design recommendations as a geotechnical and materials engineer. I also use algebra to calculate quantities in a laboratory environment to test materials for their properties and characteristics.


Algebra 2

Courses that I am qualified to teach include all levels of Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, all levels of Calculus, Physics, SAT Math and ACT Math, Accounting, and Engineering Graphics. In my other career aside from being a college professor, I am a Registered Professional Engineer, a Registered Professional Hydrologist, and a Board Certified Structural Engineer.


Calculus

I currently teach college-level calculus with applications in several scientific fields. Furthermore, I introduce differential equations that describe heating/cooling of materials as a materials engineer and differential equations that describe fluid flow as a Registered Professional Hydrologist. On the business administration side, I use calculus to determine the maximum profit and the minimum cost of a particular job task or operation.

ACT Math

I currently teach and use all levels of mathematics to demonstrate how to solve problems to students and to solve problems as a Registered Professional Engineer and a Registered Professional Hydrologist. Word problems and logic are one of my specialties in the field of mathematics. I have spent most of my career developing skills of effective reading and translations into mathematical models to solve problems.

Discrete Math

I have a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree in Civil Engineering with a minor in Mathematics. Part of the civil engineering program included an electrical engineering course with an associated lab and discrete mathematics. Currently, I teach algebra with numerous applications including computer applications with regards to mod and binary arithmetic. I have taught mathematics for the computer sciences to serve computer science and electronics students at various institutions.


Differential Equations

I use differential equations to solve materials science problems as a materials engineer. Specifically, I use differential equations to analyze properties of soil, concrete, and asphalt for new development and repair work. I have taught differential equation concepts in calculus courses at the college level.


Business

I have a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from an accredited university. The MBA program consisted of 12 post-bacclaureate courses requiring communication and writing skills and research of current business topics and trends.


AutoCAD

I am a Registered Professional Engineer involved with foundation design and design of retaining walls using AutoCAD. I am a certified AutoCAD user and have produced many engineering drawings from manufactured products to land development design and supporting details using AutoCAD.


Actuarial Science

I have taught Probability & Statistics on a college level with applications to determine insurance rates and risks. My teaching included specific examples of relating flood insurance rates with the finished floor elevation of structures within a designated floodplain. The finished floor elevation was then compared to the base flood elevation (100-year storm event) to determine the risk. This risk is calculated using probabilities of occurrence and potential damage. The probability of a flood event was incorporated into the probability of a single, independent event occurring. Each flood event was considered an independent event; however, the probability of repeated events occurring was determined to be much smaller. I am also a Registered Professional Hydrologist with the American Institute of Hydrology with a specialty in flood studies used by flood insurance agents to determine appropriate rates based upon associated risks. These flood studies were submitted to the Federal Emergency Managemet Agency (FEMA) for approval on the federal level. Approvals are then incorporated into the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), and the FIRMs are updated. Specifically, I am considered an expert on the technical aspects of the FIRMs as I am a Certified Floodplain Manager, which is achieved via examination and maintained through approved continuing education comprised of updates in technical aspects and regulations pertaining to the Flood Insurance Act and flood insurance programs seeking recertification.


Biostatistics

As a Registered Professional Hydrologist, I function as a limnologist for riverine and lacustrine systems. In this capacity, I study the biology of the aquatic life and the standard of living within the existing water quality level. I analyze data concerning quantity and quality. This data analysis involve statistical computations and inference concerning the overall health of the body of water in focus. Many of the mathematical and statistical models that I have developed have been used to forecast maintenance and refurbishment to impaired water bodies and hypoxic/anoxic situations. Statistical profiling of cross-sectional areas of water bodies provides a visualization of the health of a particular water body and can be used for comparison to established standards for water in accordance to its use (drinking, recreation, effluent, etc.).


Econometrics

I have an MBA (Masters of Business Administration) from an accredited program which required Macroeconomics and Microeconomics on the graduate level. I received A's in both accelerated graduate-level courses. I also teach college-level math with some applications from economics.


Fortran

I program in FORTRAN and BASIC as a Registered Professional Hydrologist generating subroutines to calculate water levels on a node grid for aquifer hydrology calculations. I also use FORTRAN programming to calculate key deck elevations in bridge design.


Linear Algebra

I currently teach all levels of algebra on a junior college level and a senior college level. I took linear algebra in college as an undergraduate and obtained a near perfect 100 average. I currently incorporate matrix algebra and Gauss-Seidel methods for solving systems of equations.


Logic

I currently teach Quantitative Reasoning which is logic based on a university level. This course involves statistics and reasoning to solve problems and make decisions applicable to legal proceedings, technical sciences, and social sciences.


Civil Engineering

I am a Registered Professional Engineer with a Master's Degree in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University. I have been practicing civil engineering for almost twenty years, ranging from geotechnical engineering to structural engineering to roadway design and land development. I am also a Registered Professional Hydrologist, a Certified Floodplain Manager, and a Board Certified Structural Engineer. I have engaged in numerous flood studies and wetlands delineations and assessments.


Finite Math

I teach algebra, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, and developmental math on a junior college level and a senior college level. I incorporate Vedic methodology in arithmetic and algebraic concepts. I have been teaching mathematics for six years.
