I tutor math with patience and focus, and I love to help students succeed and gain confidence in their math and study skills. No question is ever stupid, because sometimes it just takes the right starting point or concept in order for everything to click and move forward. It's important to find out exactly what the student's point of confusion is so that I can help him/her build a foundation. My job is to listen and find out how to help, and then make sure that learning goals are met.
I have experience tutoring all levels of math and all types of students. I have tutored high school students in my neighborhood, and my own son, so I am familiar with high school math assignments and textbooks. I taught a unit in coordinate geometry at a SDUSD high school and passed the three math CSET tests for teacher credentialing. These are just a few of my accomplishments in pursuit of exploring my own goal to teach. I have spent many years as an engineer in telecommunications, and my academic background includes math courses from algebra through calculus, linear programming and probability and statistics. I also have experience tutoring physics. I am well versed in Spanish as well.
