Al W. is an engineer by education, but a Math Teacher for the last twenty-five years by choice and good fortune.
He has taught the entire High School Math curriculum, from Algebra 1 through AP Calculus, with the exception of AP Statistics. Al is especially effective in the advanced Algebra/Precalculus/AP Calculus sequence not only because of his background as a civil engineer, but because he is an AP Calculus Reader for the College Board. That means he scores the free response questions of the AP Calculus exam every year. So he knows exactly what's expected of students on the exam. In addition, Al is a Consultant for the National Math & Science Initiative, which means he holds AP Calculus workshops for students around the country, as well as workshops for AP Calculus teachers.
Finally, Al has taught the SAT Math Prep course at his high school for the last seven years, so he is very effective in getting students ready for that as well.
