I have been teaching algebra/science/history for the past 10 years and have been tutoring math for over 30 years. I have my electrical engineering degree from CSULB but have a passion for helping kids understand math, science, and study techniques in other subjects. I focus on concepts and test taking techniques. In math, my goal is to have the tutoring session be interactive where I teach a concept and the student will then demonstrate the concept to me until it is completely understood. In all subjects, I emphasize study and test taking techniques that will help a student not only study for a test but will also help while taking the actual test.

I work well with public, private, home schooled, and college students.

I am available for students all day and evenings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and after 3:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Prealgebra

I have been tutoring and teaching prealgebra, algebra, and other maths for over 20 years. My tutoring philosophy is to teach a concept and then have the student practice it until it is securely understood. I also teach the correct way to show work so it will help the student solve the problems correctly.

####
Elementary Math

I have been teaching all different levels of math for years with emphasis on pre-algebra and algebra. With elementary math, it is important to assess the student's learning style and teach to that style. Some kids like to learn math facts with worksheets, other with songs, and other with word pictures. It is my job, as a tutor, to find which will work best for the student and help them become proficient.
