I have a BSEE from Purdue University and an MBA in Management from Xavier University. I worked in industry for 30 years and have been a Professor at Devry University for 20 years. Subjects I have taught include math, computers and business subjects. At the University I have been designated as an instructor in small classes where students needed specialized instruction. Present rank is Visiting Professor, the highest rank available to Adjunct Professors.

I also do on-site tutoring for the University in their Student Success Center which is available to all students.

At the University I have had great success in developing students who have learning problems. I have also done some private tutoring for students in both college and high school math plus tutoring graduate level students in business courses and statistics. I am looking to increase my private tutoring schedule.
