I love to help someone who is struggling in math begin to succeed and to gain confidence. I especially love to help students understand Statistics, Geometry and Advanced Algebra. During the past 20 years I have tutored several students in these subjects, and have even tutored younger, elementary-aged students.
I tutored one young man from middle school math through Honors PreCalculus. I also tutored his younger brother for several years. Following is a statement written by his parents: "Jack H. began tutoring our sons in mathematics when they entered junior high school and continued helping them into high school. He helped them with Algebra, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry and PreCalculus. One of our sons took these courses as an honors student and achieved excellent grades in honors mathematics. Mr. H. adjusted his schedule to help our sons before a difficult test or if they needed extra help to understand the material. He knows the material well and communicates in a patient and supportive manner. Having been a long time classroom mathematics teacher, he understands and minimizes the frustration and confusion a tutor can create by using different mathematical theory, techniques and methods in his tutoring sessions than are used in the classroom and in homework assignments. Our family highly recommends Mr. H. for mathematics tutoring."
In order to minimize your anxiety hiring a tutor you have never met, I don't charge for the first consultation session. Although I prefer tutoring in my home in Sun Valley, I will be happy to discuss a location more convenient to you.
Being recently retired from full-time teaching has allowed me to more easily adapt my schedule to that of a student. I look forward to hearing from you and to helping you succeed in your subject.

Jack's subjects
Algebra 2
I have taught both regular and honors Algebra 2 for over 10 years.
Geometry
I have taught both honors and regular classes of Geometry for over 10 years. I love to tutor this subject.
Prealgebra
I have taught prealgebra to middle school and high school students.
Precalculus
I took 4 semesters of Calculus when I was in college and have taught honors Algebra 2 which is fairly close to the Precalculus content.
Trigonometry
I have taught the trigonometry portion of Geometry and Algebra 2 courses. I would be able to help a student master this content area.
Statistics
I have taught regular statistics and AP Statistics for the past 8 to 10 years. This is one of my favorite subjects to tutor and teach.
GRE
I have been a classroom math teacher in high school for the past 16 years. I just retired but would love to continue helping students prepare for their futures. I can handle the math preparation for the exam and will help work through a test prep booklet to help in the other areas.
GED
Since I have taught middle and high school math for the past 19 years, I would be able to help someone prepare for the GED, especially in the math area. I would also be able to help in the English and Science areas.
ASVAB
Because of my 19 years of experience teaching middle school (3 years) and high school math, I would be able to help review your math content. I have taught Geometry for many years which has a logic element to it. I believe I could help you in the verbal reasoning sections of the test. I don't have as much experience in the practical areas of electronics, however. I am retired, so I can work with you to prepare for this test.
Elementary Math
I have tutored several students who are elementary age in the field of math. I help them get their basic math tools sharpened so they can be successful as they move into middle math. I connect well with young students.
CBEST
I have a BA in math from CSUN and have taught middle school and high school math for the past 19 years. I have tutored a lady who had failed the math portion of the CBEST test twice. We worked together for a few sessions and...she passed on the next try. I have also taken this test and passed, 20 years ago when I was first entering my second career of math teaching.
