Teaching math is so awesome! I love helping people understand the subject. It is so much fun!

I currently teach at a local community college. I have been in my current, full time job for 23 years. I have taught all levels -- from basic math through differential equations and linear algebra. The subjects that I have spent the most time teaching are: Calculus, College Algebra, Precalculus, Algebra I and Algebra II.

I work in a tutoring center on the side because I just love to answer student's questions. It is so cool to be able to help people!

I also have 4 years of high school teaching experience.

I prefer to tutor in my home in La Habra. I have a huge collection of worksheets, previous exams, test prep. guidebooks, and textbooks in my home office. I have a computer and printer/copier available for student use during sessions also. Your tutoring experience will be greatly enhanced if you come to my home office for sessions.
