Two of the most important attributes of a good teacher or tutor are patience and the ability to break down difficult subject matters. These I do possess, among others that would qualify me to be the person to teach you or your child. In addition, I earned my undergraduate (Bachelors) degrees in Computer and Electrical Engineering with minors in Math and Computer Science at SUNYIT in Utica NY. Also, I hold a Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) with 3.7 GPA and concentration in Power System, along with a Graduate Certificate in Power System and Electronics from NYU-POLY in Brooklyn NY.

I am currently attending NYU-POLY as a Ph.D. student in Electrical Engineering, while I work as a Control Design Engineer, designing military motor controllers. With over eighteen years experience in teaching and tutoring, I have taught students in Geometry, prealgebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, precalculus, calculus I/II/III, differential equations, physics, numerical computation, programming in C/C++ and Assembly Language, and QuickBooks. Also, I have received recognitions from SUNYIT for outstanding student staff contribution to the College of Science and Technology.

I take studying seriously and encourage students to make it a priority to ensure successful mastery of subject matters. Not all of us are born as geniuses; however, we all have the ability to work hard and hard work does pay off in life. With this in mind I teach techniques that do not rely solely on memorization, but rather a process of how to think and solve problems systematically. I will teach you or your child how to master the skills necessary to be a successful problem solver. I work with small groups or on an individual basis. I love people and enjoy helping others to become more successful and fulfilled human beings. Life has taught me that to be successful we all rely on others to teach us what we do not know. Once successful in our endeavors, we must be willing to give back to society. Helping others to learn is one of the ways I give back.

If you have the need to learn, why not let an esteemed individual in education, who is a professional engineer, help you to be successful. I wouldn’t have become successful without the help of others. Let me return the favor by helping you overcome your challenges.

ACT Math

The ACT Math test can be significantly more difficult than the SAT. Therefore, students need to be well prepared and comfortable with the testing structure/format. They also need to be familiar with the type of questions and wordings. I will help to diagnose your weak areas and develop a plan of study to improve your abilities in those areas. By utilizing different strategies and techniques, I will help you improve your ability to make an educated guess under those instances where you maybe uncertain of a particular question(s). I will use past released test materials as practice questions under real testing conditions to help students build their comfort and confidence level. Being comfortable in all these areas will help students to be better prepared and relaxed on the test day.

Algebra 1

I have taught and tutored Algebra I to students with a very diverse ethnic background and of different abilities for more than fifteen years.

Bible Studies

As a Christian for more than thirteen years, I have studied the Bible extensively and have attended Bible studies classes at least once per week. I prepare and taught custom Bible studies to individual, small groups, and the congregation. I have been very active in church mentoring youth and new Christians. To study the scriptures effectively it must be studied in context. One must also understand the purpose of the text and who it was written to.

If you are interested in studying the Bible, you must have an open mind to allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you. The Spirit will reveal the meaning of scripture when it is sought with an open mind. Teaching others is my true passion. Therefore, if you are interested in studying the Bible, let me help you to understand the Word of God. The only thing that is required is for you to have an open mind and the willingness to be obedient to Spirit as He speaks to your heart.
