Hello there! I've been computer programming for 20 years and teaching Algebra and Java programming at the community college for 6 years. I live in North Phoenix, and I have five kids, ages 13 through 6. My daughter received an "A" in first grade Math. Yes, I take credit for it :)

My feedback from classroom evaluations have always been positive. Some of my comments on recent evaluations include: "Very helpful!" "Dedicated to my success!" "He seems to really care." The faculty evaluator says that I have a "relaxed classroom environment"

I am patient and I am dedicated to your success. I will NOT make you feel stupid for asking basic questions! You must have a solid understanding of the foundations of Mathematics in order to succeed. I am committed to your success.

I also have significant (15 years) Oracle, SQL, Java and C programming experience.

I'm available for tutoring in the evenings and during the day Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

I look forward to working with you soon!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
