I am available for math tutoring in the Oro Valley area.
I began tutoring in college with as many as 6 students per week. I graduated summa cum laude with honors in mathematics. I have an MS degree in statistics, an MBA and am an Associate of the Society of Actuaries. After 18 years' experience as a pension consultant, I “retired" as Director of Actuarial Services from NTRC in Atlanta to begin my second career as a high school math teacher and tutor. I taught all math courses from fractions through calculus and developed courses in math history and math strategies for problem solving. At the middle school level I have coached Math Counts teams that went to the State competitions. All these experiences have enriched my understanding of math and my ability to explain math to my students.
I want students to rise to the highest level of which they are capable. Learning math is more than just learning formulas or repeating a procedure. To be successful at math students must understand what they are doing. This will enable them to think creatively, reason effectively, approach challenges with confidence and solve problems with persistence. Get help early on before you get lost.
I hope you will give me a chance to help you with your math.
The famous math historian E. T. Bell said, "What is mathematics for? To delight the mind and help us understand the world."
