Looking for a solution to your difficulty with calculus
I am a very caring, patient, competent, and experienced math
tutor, coach, teacher, and mentor. My focus is college math (calculus, precalculus, college algebra
, and differential equations
), and high school AP Calculus
I am known as "Dr. Calculus" because of my deep passion and enthusiasm for math, especially calculus and differential equations!
I am currently a full time Instructor of Mathematics
at Kennesaw State University, teaching calculus I and II, college algebra
, and precalculus. Prior to this I was a private high school math teacher, teaching all math subjects from pre-algebra
through calculus. I thoroughly understand the academic environment and the math education process -- both college and high school -- and I know how to prepare the student of any age to excel
Here's a brief overview of my background and relevant experience:
After receiving a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering
(which included extra courses in mathematics such as graduate-level numerical analysis and computer
modeling), I worked for 14 years as an engineer and staff scientist at three DOE National Labs, primarily researching alternative energy conversion technologies. My research at the National Labs included extensive mathematical analysis and modeling, both analytical and numerical, of complex systems.
After moving to the Atlanta area six years ago, my passion for math led me to switch careers and become a full-time high school math teacher at Furtah Preparatory School, a small private school in Acworth, teaching all the math subjects in grades 6 to 12, including precalculus and calculus. I also began tutoring math, and have tutored almost a thousand hours.
As mentioned at the start of this profile, I am currently a full time Instructor of Mathematics at Kennesaw State University, teaching calculus I and II, college algebra, and precalculus. In the future I likely will teach calculus III, numerical analysis (also known as numerical methods), and differential equations.
I also specialize in tutoring (and mentoring) especially gifted students (including those considered "genius") who need a much higher level of rigor, depth, and challenge in their math education than they are getting in school. I will challenge EVERY student to reach his/her potential, no matter how high they are able to fly -- I will fly with them!
