Helping students achieve their full potential is my goal. For over 15 years I have been helping students with all levels of math as well as helping prepare for all parts of the SAT/ACT tests. I am skilled at motivating students to become successful in their subjects. I guarantee you will not be disappointed in the results of my tutoring help. I am now retired from my software engineering profession and am available 24/7 to meet the student's needs. I tutor students in Boca Raton, Parkland, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Lakeworth and other surrounding areas. I tutor in the home of the student or in a nearby local library. References available on request.
One-on-One is the best way to prep for the ACT. I ask the student to work on math problems prior to the tutoring session. Once i arrive we go over all problems the student did not get correct. During this process I teach any math concepts that have been "forgotten" and teach the student how to analyze each type of question and teach the student how to get to the correct answer.
I help ensure that on test day the student will achieve his best score.
Algebra is a subject which is critical that a student do well in. The ability to master this subject will greatly affect the students performance in all subsequent math classes. The concepts in this course build upon one another. Therefore it is critical that if a student runs into trouble understanding a section that that be immediately corrected. I have helped many students gain the confidence and understanding needed so that math is a subject that can be appreciated instead of feared.
Algebra 2 is a subject which is critical that a student do well in. The ability to master this subject will greatly affect the students perfromance in all subsequent math classes. The concepts in this course build upon one another. Therefore it is critical that if a student runs into trouble understanding a section that the missed concepts be immediately understood. I have helped many students gain the confidence and understanding needed so that math is a subject that can be appreciated instead of feared.
I am currently a retired software engineer. I also currently work in real estate as a licensed real estate broker in Florida (License # BK3071967). My degrees in engineering (BSEE and MEE) and my MBA allow me to help other in developing their careers. I would assist those who request help in areas of my expertise.
College-Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) validates that the student has acquired the knowledge expected of a college graduate. My many year of tutoring math, science, verbal skills and writing skills allows me to help a student prepare for this test. During my college career I have obtained a BSEE, MEE and MBA and therefore am well qualified to help a student pass the CLAST test.
I am a retired software engineer. I have worked for Raytheon company on radar system software for over 30 years.
I have many years of tutoring experience. During those years I have worked with primary school aged students (Elementary (K-6th)) to help them grasp fundamentals of reading and mathematics. Working with younger children has its special rewards as one watches them grow intellectually "right before your eyes."
I have been President of a local Toastmasters group in Massachusetts. This group met at my place of work. I was involved with this group for several years learning the skills needed to become a relaxed, confident and skilled public speaker.
The SAT Math test challenges the problem solving ability of the student and the student's ability to apply mathematical principles to the solution of the stated problem. Over many years of helping students I have the skill to teach the student how to master each type of question they will encounter. By repeated practice and shared problem solving demonstration the student can quickly hones his skill. The goal is for each student to produce a score which accurately reflects his math aptitude. SAT preparation in this one-on-one mode is the most cost effective and time effective method to prepare for the test.
