For more than 33 years I was the chief mechanical design engineer at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in the strategic systems division. I designed equipment for submarine systems. It was an interesting and exciting job. After my retirement, I grew bored with inactivity so I became a substitute teacher in the Baltimore County Public School System. I've been doing that for six years now. I've helped countless children who were struggling with math. My engineering career was quite rewarding, but the good feeling I get when a student says to me "Ah, now I understand" is equally satisfying.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I'm a retired Engineer with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. I've used math almost every day of my 33 years at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Upon retiring I began a second career as a substitute teacher in the Baltimore County school system. Much of my work over the last 5-6 years has been at Campfield Early Learning Center where students are Preschool, Pre-K and K so I'm very comfortable working with very young children.

Algebra 2

I'm a retired Engineer with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. I've been a Professional Engineer in New Jersey and Maryland. I can help students in Algebra 2 in solving linear equations, matrices and determinants, quadratic formulae, logarithms, permutations and combinations and more.

Elementary Math

I'm in my second career as a substitute teacher in the Baltimore County school system. Much of my work over the last 5-6 years has been at Campfield Early Learning Center where students are Pre-School, Pre-K and K so I'm very comfortable working with very young children. Several years ago I filled in long term for an ailing teacher. Three of her 4 classes were Math. I taught 2nd,3rd and 5th graders and tutored some of them as well. In exchange for a home cooked meal, I also tutor my 10 and 13 year old grandchildren.

Geometry

I'm a retired Engineer with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. I've used math almost every day of my 33 years at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Upon retiring I began a second career as a substitute teacher in the Baltimore County school system. Much of my work over the last 5-6 years has been at Campfield Early Learning Center where students are Pre-School, Pre-K and K so I'm very comfortable working with very young children. I looked through a Geometry book the other day. There's not one subject I'm unfamiliar with.

Linear Algebra

I worked for 13 years at RCA doing stress and vibration analysis on satellites and spacecraft. My career then took me to Johns Hopkins Physics Lab. where I worked in both the Space Department doing stress analysis and in the Strategic Systems Department where I designed and analyzed equipment that mounted both inside and outside U.S.Navy ships. That's 45 years of Math. Since my retirement eight years ago I've been a substitute teacher. I have experience with students up to and including middle school. One year, filling in long term for an ailing teacher I had 4 classes, three of which were Math (a second, third and fifth grade). I am more than capable of solving linear algebraic equations. I'm familiar with determinants and matrices. I know the quadratic formula. I can deal with radicals and I know how to handle logarithms. I can sum sequences; work permutations and combinations and can graph basic curves

Prealgebra

SAT Math

It has been many, many years since I was a math student. Preparing for the certification test in SAT math, I encountered problems I hadn't solved since those days of yore. As I worked through sample problems in Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry, solutions I had forgotten came rushing back. My many years as a Mechanical Engineer with Bachelor's and Master's degrees as well as my years as a substitute teacher served me well. I also passed the Professional Engineer's exam and was licensed in New Jersey and Maryland.

Trigonometry

I'm a retired Engineer with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. I've used trigonometry almost every day of my 33 years at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. You get pretty proficient after a while and I truly believe I can help children struggling with sines, cosines and tangents.Upon retiring I began a second career as a substitute teacher in the Baltimore County school system.
