I am an engineer with a Lean Sigma Master Black Belt certification, who has been tutoring elementary, middle, high school and college students for the past 10 years. In addition, I have been teaching physics and math at IUS and Ivy Tech for the past 8 years, and teaching leadership skills in the business world for the past 10 years. I see myself not only as a tutor, but as a role model and mentor for all of my students. This year, two of my students graduated from high school, and I started tutoring them when they were in the 5th grade. Another passion of mine is to help young people prepare for standardized tests (ISTEP, ACT, SAT, GRE, MCAT, etc.).
I have been helping students prepare for the ACT Math section for the past 10 years.
I have successfully worked with my son and several other students with ADD/ADHD with some basic techniques to help with concentration and focus.
I have successfully worked with my son and two other students with Aspergers.
I have been tutoring calculus students for the past 6 years.
I have been tutoring high school and college chemistry students for 4 years.
I have been working with elementary kids on their math skills for the past 20 years.
I have been helping elementary students with science for the past 20 years.
I have been helping students prepare for standardized tests for the past 15 years.
I have been tutoring geometry students for 12 years.
I have been helping students prep for the GRE for 3 years.
I have a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering (with a mechanical focus) and a master's degree in mechanical engineering.
I have over 10 years experience with Access both with Office 2010 and older versions. I can pull in data from external sources, create queries, create forms, and produce reports.
I have used Microsoft Project for the past 15 years to manage and coordinate projects at work - from simple projects (such as coordinating a design review) to projects on the scale of remodeling a dozen hospital units. It is an excellent tool to allocate resources, keep track of deadlines, and prepare reports to upper management.
I have been using MS Word for the past 20 years, and have taught basic to intermediate courses in the business environment.
I have been tutoring physical science for the past 10 years.
I have been tutoring Physics students for 9 years and teaching a college-level Physics class for 8 years.
I have helped 4 students study for the Praxis exam. Also, I have more than 15 years experience prepping students for other standardized tests.
I have been tutoring pre-algebra students for 12 years.
I have been tutoring pre-calculus students for 12 years.
I have been helping students prepare for the PSAT for the past 15 years.
I have been helping elementary and middle school students improve their reading skills for the past 10 years. The materials I use help with the foundations of reading (phonics), as well as reading comprehension.
I have been helping students prepare for the SAT math section for 12 years.
I find that more and more elementary schools are dropping spelling as a subject, and as a result, I added spelling to my list of tutoring subjects 2 years ago. I use a curriculum that builds on basic phonetic rules, noting exceptions to those rules as they occur.
I have used SPSS at work for the past 10 years and have helped both students and professionals use SPSS for the past 5 years.
I have been tutoring trigonometry students for 12 years.
