I love math, but if you don't, I understand! I can make it less scary for you. I have taught or tutored everything from basic arithmetic to upper-division engineering math, as well as statistics. I have helped hundreds of people by listening to them, understanding their approach to math, and then showing them where to make adjustments. I do best with college-age and adult learners, but I have also tutored high school students.
My specialties are statistics, calculus, and applied math for engineering including differential equations, stochastic processes, and linear algebra. My credentials: I have a Bachelor's in Math, Master's in a sort of applied math, and Doctorate in engineering math by way of Electrical Engineering (at the University of California at Santa Barbara). I have logged over 2500 hours' time in one-on-one tutoring through Pearson Tutor Services.
Before working with Pearson, I spent seven years working as an aerospace engineer, where I worked on navigational software for a large Air Force transport plane and did a little research on space navigation. I have over eight years' experience in the classroom at both the university level (Washington U in St. Louis, U.C. Santa Barbara, Wentworth Institute of Technology) and the community college level (Santa Barbara City College, North Shore Community College at Lynn, MA). I had several clients for one-on-one tutoring in the home, at libraries, or at schools in Santa Barbara, CA, where I helped with GED math, college prep math, and college statistics.
I'd love to hear from you ... early on in your math or stats course, rather than later!
