My experience of 21 years as a Mechanical Engineer at various levels of management has taught me to understand and communicate mathematical concepts to people who may not have a background in math.

My 20 years as a home inspector allows me to describe and explain concepts cited in the Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Building codes to the lay person so they can pursue repairs and corrective actions.

I am fluent in Spanish and allows me to communicate mathematical concepts to persons who have trouble communicating in English.

I am also a volunteer for the First Tee Contra Costa Golf program.

Algebra 1

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and have 21 years' experience in solving algebraic equations as part of my daily duties during that time. I was also responsible for verifying the geometric configuration of the space shuttle tiles. All of the tiles were submitted to me using algebraic expressions for planes and surfaces.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a through knowledge of basic math concepts and have had the opportunity to explain these concepts to persons of all ages. My knowledge of more advanced math concepts helps me guide students in the early years.

Elementary Math

It is extremely important to have a strong understanding of basic math concepts as they provide the basis for understanding and learning more complex mathematical theory. I use flash cards, as aids allow the student to understand these basic concepts.

Geometry

Part of my duties as a mechanical engineer serving the Space Shuttle Program at Lockheed was to verify the insulation tile geometry to assure compliance with referenced standards.

Golf

I've been playing golf for over 40 years and I am a 12 handicap. I am involved in Jr. Golf helping in Jr. golf camps reviewing grip, short iron, fairway wood and driver. I am also a volunteer coach for the First Tee Program for Contra Costa.

Microsoft Excel

I used Excel as a means of calculating business expenses and a means of calculating multi-parameter equations in my years as an engineer for 21 years

Microsoft Word

I have written thousands of documents as an engineer and a home inspector. A majority of which have been in various revisions of MS WORD.

Prealgebra

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and have 21 years experience in solving algebraic equations as part of may daily duties during that time. My duties included using algebraic expressions to determine the intersections of planar and non-planar geometric surfaces using matrices.
