I've had lots of experience using math in business and in engineering. I'm also an adjunct professor at the Community College of Aurora, where I teach classroom courses in college algebra. If you're having difficulties with math, I've been there - math was my worst subject in high school. I got past the roadblocks and had fun doing it, and so can you! If you need a different way to look at things so you can "get it" or you need help with practice, give me a call.
Math should not be about memorization. At some point in the past, did you memorize the next sentence you're going to use? Probably not - you know what you want to say, and you construct the sentence or the phrase you need in order to say it. Once you get comfortable with math, it's just like talking ... you just "say" what you need to say, and that's it! After you learn it, math is fun. This approach requires two things - practice and patience. The best way to learn to talk this kind of math is by doing it - so let's dive in and talk math!
Finally, math is about more than just solving problems - it's about understanding and communication. Those who can "speak" math - who understand and can use the logic and the lingo - have a better chance at getting ahead in the world than those who can't. My goal is to help you find methods you can use to "translate" math problems into something you can understand, solve, and write down an answer for. These methods are usable not just for solving math problems you're dealing with right now, but can have an impact on your future in a variety of professions.
