ACOMPLISHMENTS

* 40 years in high-tech engineering, management and consulting;

* Since 2007, Adjunct Professor of Mathematics at MassBay Community College, Framingham State University and Wentworth Institute of Technology;

* Developed four (4) special Math Tutoring programs for AutoTech, BioTech, Physics and Athletes that became the foundation of an Internet-based summer program in Basic and Refreshing Mathematics;

* Recipient of two Title III grants to develop online tutoring; and to incorporate SOCRATIVE.com for the use in a "flipped classroom" environment;

* Nominated for Excellence in Teaching in FY2014;

* In conjunction with three other Adjunct Professors and three Peer Tutors and the college's CIO implemented and delivered an online, live Internet-based tutoring program for in-coming freshman to prepare them to take the Accuplacer Placement test. Involved some 70 students who could not come to campus to obtain this type of tutoring.

* An early adopter of:

... Pearson's MyMathLab and McGraw-Hill's ALEKS computer-based programs;

... Socrative.com in support of a flipped-classroom paradigm;

... Mathematica and Wolfram/Alpha to support students studying Pre Calculus and above;

* Developed and implemented a revision of MassBay's Calculus 1, 2 & 3 and Differential Equations courses under the auspices of the "best practices" of Calculus Reform;

* Provided pro-bono tutoring to METCO students at Lincoln-Sudbury High School;

* Tutored a high school student for a year in math, a subject twice failed and a requirement for graduation. He went on to college and became a highly respected, remedial math teacher - "he had walked in their shoes".

MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY BASED ON A BLEND OF TWO EXPERIENCES

The first, a proud career as an engineer, executive, and consultant in high tech where fluency in the language of mathematics is fundamental to success; and subsequently in academia where I now teach and tutor mathematics at both a 2-year and 4-year college level.

WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT OF ME

* Approach mathematics from an application perspective;

* Treat mathematics as a language--"Mathish;"

* To be challenged to think in every class;

* A Socratic style of interaction;

* Support via the Internet, email, phone;

* High expectations of them to perform;

* Incorporate humor as a part of the learning process;

* My reward is their success.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have a Master’s Degree from MIT with 40 years of high-tech experience as a practicing electrical engineering; and have taught/tutored Differential Equations at the college level.
