I tutor math, from algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and up to pre-calculus. I tutor high school Chemistry. I also tutor English skills including reading, writing, and proofreading papers.
I worked as an engineer and manager in Silicon Valley, including a couple of the giant companies and a couple of successful start-up companies. I returned to college about ten years ago and completed the postgraduate Teaching Credential program at Santa Clara University. I tutored at a private college (English, Math & Business) and later supervised the tutoring center. I taught math in local middle and high schools for several years. Today, I limit myself to tutoring individuals and small groups.
I have experience with Asperger's and ADHD, as well as ESL. Many of my students are special needs. I have experience as an Inclusion Aide, partnering with a special needs student for the entire school day to facilitate inclusion in mainstream classes.
My approach to tutoring is basically calm and supportive. I do not enjoy "drill sergeant" tutoring. I try to leave students feeling good about the tutoring experience and about the support they have received.
I can tutor in your home, my home, the public library or even (with permission from your teacher) at your school.
