I take a great deal of pride in my work. I will take the time to make sure that the client understands the subject matter that we are studying together. As a result, when I do not know the answer to a question, I take it upon myself to find the answer and convey that answer in a timely fashion to my client. I loved mentoring newly hired engineers in the last 20 years and have had a passion for the subjects that I have taught.

Though I do not have any have any course work in education, I always endeavored to convey the material that I was teaching to my mentees. I insured that the mentee understood my answers to their questions. When I did not know the answer to the question, I would say so rather than trying to bluff my way though the question. If the question was out of my field I would direct the mentee to a colleague who would probably know the answer. If the question was in my field I would research to find the answer.

The mathematics that I used in my work were linear algebra, matrices both orthogonal and non-orthogonal, transformation matrices, quaternions, least squares fit problems, geometrical problems and orbit mechanics. These topics are all higher level mathematics. As a result I could help my students with more basic math topics such as algebra, trigonometry, geometry, basic calculus and probability. I am looking forward to making a contribution to your educational experience.
