I recently received a message from the mother of one of my students:
Hi Noel, hope your summer is going well. The AP test scores came out this week and E*** got a 5 on the Calculus, which is the highest score. She was very excited and wanted you to know. Thanks again, M****

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering and a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. As a pre-engineering and engineering student, I took courses in a wide variety of mathematics and science including algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus, differential equations, linear analysis, numerical analysis, basic and advanced physics. In later engineering courses, I used the mathematics and science in advanced engineering courses. I have been a working engineer for the past three decades, applying the math and physics I learned as a student. I have also taught at levels from fourth grade through college and have enjoyed the experience. I have helped many students achieve success.

I have found three primary obstacles to students' learning math and physics:

1. Motivation. Many students do not see any relationship between math and physics and their lives, now or in the future. I discuss with students how math can be used to describe, understand and control the world around them from their day to day activities and decisions to the world and cosmos we live in.

2. Lack of confidence. Students have been convinced that they are incapable of learning math. I show students that mathematical concepts are logical, coherent and can be understood and that tools can be applied simply to arrive at answers to problems.

3. Teaching methods. Most math and physics teaching consists of instructors lecturing by working problems before a class of students. In my experience, students can follow the steps the instructor takes to solve a problem but are left in the dark as to how the instructor knew, and the student is supposed to know, what steps to take to solve a problem. I help students learn how to think about math and problem solving and how to see, the steps leading to a problem solution.

Subjects I am qualified to tutor include:
Algebra - all levels
Trigonometry
Geometry
Calculus
Pre-calculus
Physics
Differential Equations
Matlab

I enjoy working with motivated students; my students seem to enjoy my teaching approach and many benefit dramatically. I am able to explain complex concepts in simple terms that make them much more understandable than typical academic teaching methods do.

I can recommend high quality, inexpensive reference books and texts to support tutoring now which will become lifetime references for students as they progress in academia and career.

I look forward to tutoring students at all levels.

Contact me and we can set up a meeting.

Differential Equations

I am a graduate engineer with a BS in Aerospace Engineering and an MS in Mechanical Engineering. I have studied and used differential equations in school and in my career. I feel I am qualified to tutor in this field.

Fortran

I first learned FORTRAN in 1978. I taught FORTRAN to engineering students at San Diego State University 1980-82. I used FORTRAN up until it fell out of favor in the engineering world in the mid 1990's.

MATLAB

I have been using Matlab for roughly ten years day to day as an active engineer.
