I taught high school math for 3 years and have a lot of experience working with students in both Math and Physics. I have a B.S. in Math and a minor in Physics as well as my CT secondary education teacher's certification in Math. I have also tutored all through college in both Math and Physics. I am an avid soccer player who coached Premier soccer throughout college and currently coach at the high school level. I am also a scuba diving instructor for my local dive shop.

Being a teacher there is nothing that makes me happier than seeing a student succeed. I look forward to working with you and help you succeed in the classroom.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Differential Equations

I took Differential equations 1 and 2 at the University of Rhode Island. I also took partial differential equations at the same university.

Linear Algebra

I took linear algebra at the university and took a graduate linear algebra at Central Connecticut State University.

Microsoft Access

I uses these on a daily basis for Travelers Insurance company to do ETL processes that creates a final table. This final table I bring into excel using MS Query and create a pivot table. I then write formulas in excel to extract the data from the pivot table to create refreshable reports for senior leadership on a monthly basis.

Soccer

I have been playing since I was 4 years old and have been coaching for the past 6 years.

Swimming

I was a swim instructor for over 10 years starting at the age of 16. I taught swimming for the Enfield recreational department and at the Connecuticut children's place while in high school and taught at the University of Rhode Island while in college.
