If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

If you're looking for a math tutor who works at your pace, is patient and offers lots of encouragement, then I'm your match. I have a master's degree in Electrical Engineering from Cambridge University, and a 20 year distinguished career as an electronic design engineer and project manager designing digital image processing equipment.

I can quickly gain insight into a student’s learning style, and their stumbling blocks. Instead of just repeating what their teacher’s already gone over in class, I’m often able to provide another way of looking at the areas that they are having difficulty with. I try to give students an understanding of the underlying principles so that they can more easily remember the formula required to solve a specific problem.

I have passed WyzAnt’s certification tests in Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Probability, Precalculus and have also been certified by them in Electrical Engineering.

I find it beneficial to assign some homework while keeping in mind the student’s time pressures. My homework is to prepare for the next session and develop problems for the student that will help them through the areas that are challenging them.

I look forward to meeting you and learning how best I can help you achieve the grades you are striving for.
