Personal attention allows students the chance to ask questions and get concepts clarified, particularly in subjects like mathematics, where information and ideas are written in symbols. Decoding meaning in mathematics requires a highly developed set of skills and I help people develop those skills for themselves. Since people think in many different ways, what I help students do is to use the ways they think and process information to help them learn the basic concepts they need to be successful now and in the future in mathematics.
I am currently in the process of earning a Master of Arts in Teaching from Loyola Universtiy Maryland. I expect to finish in May of 2015. I have been an Adjunct Professor of Mathematics at Anne Arundel Community College, where I expect to continue teaching as my Masters degree program progresses. I mostly teach remedial mathematics at Anne Arundel Community College, bringing students up to speed in Pre-algebra and Algebra. Since I am an electrical engineer, I can help people who are working though math, from elementary mathematics topics through calculus.
I am also a fluent French speaker, in addition to having earned a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University. I lived in France when I was very young, and later lived in Belgium, where I learned to speak, read and write French. I went to a Belgian school the last year I lived in Belgium, and this school is where I consolidated my fluency. I can coach students on spoken French, helping them learn continental French pronunciation, but I can also teach beginning French composition, grammar and spelling.
