After graduating with a bachelor's degree in mathematics
from Texas A&M University I taught high school math
subjects from basic math
at a public high school in East Central Illinois for 34 years. During that time I also earned a master's degree in education. While there I started the computer
education program at our high school. I also served as chairman of the math department for 28 years. During those years I served on the Advisory Panel for the Psychological Corporation in their development of a test to measure Computer Readiness. I have attended many of the International Society for Technology in Education annual conferences.
Even after a successful career in public school teaching I still have the desire to continue helping students to learn mathematics. To that end, I have spent the last 14 years successfully tutoring students (at a private learning center in South Florida) in high school, college, and professional math subjects ranging all the way from basic level high school math through IB math and AP Calculus
up to college level calculus. I also have prepared students for the math portions of the SAT
My approach to tutoring is to help you understand the logic
and strategies in math concepts and the methods used to solve math problems. I will work with you to make math easier to understand and to help you succeed in your math course. I will expect you to put forth your best effort to learn.
I will provide periodic assessments of your progress. I will also expect you to provide me with notice of cancellation of our session at least four hours prior to our session time.
