I tutor math and science to high school students and college students. I tutor Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, SAT Math Prep, general Chemistry and general Physics. I work primarily in and around the Almaden area of San Jose.
I really enjoy my students and the time I spend with them. Math and science classes are challenging and the pace sometimes frustrates students and can leave them behind. Once behind, it’s pretty daunting to catch up without help. Tutoring is a good solution and is best when you begin the tutoring early in the term. The extra time with one to one instruction and help gives students freedom to explore and question, learn the material and become confident in it.
I graduated from San Jose State University with a BS in Chemistry and a minor in Physics. I completed course work for a Master's Degree in Natural Science. Then I taught high school mathematics for 2 years. The subjects I taught included general math, pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry and pre-Calculus. I hold a lifetime secondary teaching credential in California.
I left teaching and worked 25+ years at IBM, primarily in production engineering, then a few more years at HP in marketing IT and project management. Four years ago, I began tutoring.
