I have a BS in Applied Mathematics with a Minor in Computer Science from Florida State University. I graduated summa cum laude with a perfect 4.0 GPA and am a member of Phi Beta Kappa. I worked for more than 27 years in Mathematics and Computer Science, at Eglin AFB, Florida. I have tutored many students in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry,

Calculus, and computers over the years.

I have always found explaining math and computer concepts to be an easy, logical process. Most students learn by establishing a good foundation in first principles and then building upon these principles by repetition. I tutored in college and had great success!

My technique is rather simple:

1. Create a positive atmosphere with the student.

2. Present the lesson objectives in a clear and concise manner.

3. Develop with the student an incremental foundation of knowledge.

4. Provide study problems that encompass the lesson objectives.

5. Help the student deconstruct the problems into clearly solvable parts. In my experience, a student's ability to deconstruct is critical and must be nurtured with great care. During this process, they often must overcome "mental blocks" that can cause much impairment.

6. Summarize each problem solution and show which lesson objectives have been achieved.

7. Give lots of positive feedback to the student.

My son just needs a little input help with Algebra 2 and Bob was very patient with him. Look forward to working with him again.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Concept of using variables instead of numbers to represent unknown quantities in equations.

Learning how to work with polynomial equations is central to this subject. Defining, manipulating and solving these equations provides one with a foundation critical for all upper levels of mathematics.

I programmed in C for a long time as a Computer Scientist at Eglin AFB, FL. C is a very easy to use language which lends itself nicely to low level control of a system.

I took a class in C++ at Northwest Florida State College and received an A. I programmed in C++ as a Computer Scientist at Eglin AFB, FL. C++ is an object oriented language which is greatly used as the preferred framework for software developers.

Chemistry concepts are built on the basics of atomic and electronic structure and the periodic table. Areas of focus include:

(1) atomic, molecular, and formula weights (2) nomenclature and the mole

(3) gases, solids, and liquids

(4) chemical bonding, equations, and equilibrium

(5) solutions and acids & bases

I have been programming on computers for more than 35 years in a variety of languages using many development environments on numerous types of systems.

I worked for almost 28 years as a Computer Scientist/Mathematician at Eglin AFB, FL. I am knowledgeable in all aspects of Computer Science including computer programming, data management and system management.

I took FORTRAN in college and received an A. I used FORTRAN for a long time during my job as a Computer Scientist at Eglin AFB, FL. FORTRAN is a widely used scientific computing language for solving complex procedural problems.

I have worked with or around computers for most of my life. I feel very comfortable in a computer environment. The systems, peripherals, and interconnections are very familiar to me.

This subject focuses on the mathematics of evaluating physical aspects of figures in space such as relative positions, sizes and shapes. One learns to answer questions of length, area and volume. One is also introduced to the concept of a coordinate system.

This subject focuses on defining and manipulating mathematical expressions. One learns the laws of operations, roots, and powers. Also one is introduced to the concept of variables.

This subject focuses on the wide variety of functions, equations and coordinate systems that will be used in Calculus.

This subject focuses on the evaluation of the aspects of angles in triangles - particularly, the laws governing and functions pertaining to the angles of a right triangle.
