About 30 years of very successful experience in both teaching and tutoring math, from sixth grade through community college, from remedial math through pre-calculus, both Stateside and overseas (Asia and South America). Currently teaching Basic Math and Intermediate Algebra at San Diego City College as an adjunct math professor. Proficient (although not totally fluent) in Spanish.
Other experience includes being a US Navy officer in the 1960’s and a social worker for several years thereafter. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics, and an MEd degree in Mathematics Education (plus two other masters in non-math fields), all from the University of Minnesota.
My philosophy of education is pretty straight-forward: Treat students with respect and patience, give clear explanations and guidance, and always be honest.
Let me know if you'd like some help. We could meet either at City College or in the conference room of my condominium in North Park, San Diego (92104).
