After starting out as an engineer, I now have 12 years of experience as a math, physics and electronics teacher and 3 years experience as a math and science tutor. As a result of my engineering experience I am very good at problem solving and I have learned a lot about how to help students get motivated and organized and become more efficient learners. I am currently writing a book: "Simple Keys to Success in School and Life". I use this material in my tutoring, and it is very helpful since most of this information is not taught in schools. Therefore as well as being excellent at teaching the subject material, I help students to deal with general issues such as personal goals and attitudes and especially I help them develop better study skills and strategies. As a result I can help students learn a particular subject in less time than you would imagine - in addition to helping them become more effective and well organized in general. I also make the tutoring process interesting and pleasant and I am very patient and encouraging and get along well with most students.

Algebra 1

I have taught various levels of math a middle high school and at 4 different colleges for eight years and I have tutored math for two years. I have experience teaching everything from pre-algebra to calculus and differential equations. I have taught many versions of high school and college algebra. I am familiar with what courses a student typically has already taken and what he needs to know for his next course. I try to use common sense examples that are easy to understand. I can help the student...

Calculus

I have taught various levels of math at 4 different colleges for eight years and I have tutored math for two years. I have experience teaching everything from pre-algebra to advanced calculus and differential equations. I can help the student who is failing and the student who wants to get straight A's. I get along well with most students and can make learning interesting. I am very patient and encouraging. I particularly like tutoring calculus since it is a very conceptual subject -- and when...

Trigonometry

I am familiar with what courses a student typically has already taken and what he needs to know for his next course. Trigonometry has many common sense examples that can be used to make it easier to understand. I can help the student who is failing and the student who wants to get straight A's. I get along well with most students and can make learning interesting. I am very patient and encouraging. I also help students learn better study habits and test taking techniques.

####
SAT Math

I have done both SAT and FCAT tutoring. For all of these tests, we need to work through a workbook that has sample problems. A SAT workbook can be purchased at a bookstore. I recommend the Kaplan book. In order to do well on the test, it is important to master the material in the sample tests. This may take a longer or shorter time -- depending on the students background and ability. If the student needs a lot of preparation, you may want to tutor more than once a week.

####
GED

I have helped many students study for standardized tests and the GED test in particular. I have had good success in helping students learn the material and pass the tests. I help students to learn good study and test taking techniques which is very important. And I help students develop problem solving techniques that are important for math and physics problems.

####
ACT Math

I have done both SAT and FCAT tutoring -- which are similar to the ACT test. For all of these tests, we need to work through a workbook that has sample problems. I recommend the Kaplan test prep book for the SAT test and the Cliff Notes Test Prep Book for the ACT test. These can be purchased at a bookstore or at Amazon. In order to do well on the test, it is important to master the material in the sample tests. This may take a longer or shorter time -- depending on the student's background and...

Differential Equations

I have a PhD in physics which involves solving many different kinds of differential equations. I have also taught an undergraduate course in differential equations and taken several applied math courses that deal with differential equations. I also work with students to teach them better study habits and test taking techniques.
