I am currently teaching Algebra I and Physical Science 307 at Wilmington University, Wilmington, Delaware. I also tutor math (primarily Math, Algebra I and Praxis) for the University Student Success Center. I was a chemical engineer with DuPont for 33 years. My focus is always to try to make sure my students understand the basic fundamentals and do sufficient practice problems with the fundamentals to instill confidence and train their brains to think differently about the new subject matter they are trying to learn. Math skills are cumulative and must be practiced to develop proficiency.

My goal as a tutor is to try an many different learning techniques as possible to allow the student to understand the fundamental subject matter.
