I love to learn and love to teach! My background includes a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Missouri S&T. I currently work as a substitute teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District, Long Beach Unified School District, and the Soledad Enrichment Action charter school. My subbing assignments include Kindergarten to 12th grade and my specialty is math.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is the study of the rules of operations and relations in variable math. The concepts include terms, polynomials, equations and algebraic structures.

I depend on algebra daily in my personal life and in my work as an engineer. It is essential that a solid foundation is built with this subject as students prepare for more challenging math concepts ahead. It also makes a world of difference in how you approach everyday problems from managing money to measuring ingredients in the kitchen.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 builds on the topics explored in Algebra 1. These topics include: real and imaginary numbers, inequalities, exponents, polynomials, equations, graphs, linear equations, functions and more.

For me, the skills gained in Algebra 2 were the very foundation of my study in Civil Engineering. I am able to make the real world connection between what is studied in the subject and how it applies outside of the classroom.

Elementary Math

I volunteered in college as a one-on-one mentor with a child struggling with math and reading while in elementary school into middle school. I have also worked with the Georgian Heights Elementary after school program to help prepare 5th grade students for the math portion of the Ohio Achievement Assessment test.

Geometry

Geometry is the study of shape, size, figures and properties of space. As a civil engineer, I have had extensive working knowledge of geometry concepts which I can use to help bring real-world application to the problems presented in this branch of math.

Prealgebra

The objective of pre-algebra is to prepare the student for the study of algebra.

Study Skills

I have helped develop study skills for elementary school children as a mentor. I have also worked with adults returning to school years later. As a software trainer in corporate America, I learned several different time management techniques, such as creating task list and project management techniques and how to evaluate priorities. My approach is to introduce a individualized, step-by-step learning/studying process to my students based on the skills I have learned.

Anthony’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Anthony. View all of Anthony’s resources

We don’t owe the people in our lives an emotion, we owe them an action. Having internal experiences without outward actions does nothing to build a relationship or getting us closer to our goals. Saying “I love you” or “I’m your friend” or “I’m working as hard as I can” are all empty phrases without the ACTIONS to prove it. Now, it doesn’t mean the feelings aren’t real. It means we have... read more

Great Tutor — Anthony is very patient and able to explain the concepts clearly. Anthony was able to answer my son's question-"When will I ever use this in real life?" He is able to make the lessons interesting. I was worried when Anthony moved to California, but the on-line tutoring has worked out well. Although my son still doesn't like math, he passed geometry. We plan to use Anthony again for Algebra 2. ...
