I previously taught at the United States Naval Academy from Jan 2009 to Dec 2012 as an Adjunct Instructor/Tutor teaching Calculus I and tutoring Pre-Calc, Calc I, Calc II, Statics, and the Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB - a standardized test required for those who want to fly in the Navy/Marine Corps). My last assignment in the Navy before retiring in 2009 was as the Director of Professional Tutoring at the United States Naval Academy, where I supervised 8 Masters/PhD level tutors, taught Learning Skills (Time Management, Note Taking, Test Taking, etc.), and tutored Calc I, Statics and the ASTB. Additionally, I coached high school volleyball for 10 years in Anne Arundel County, and tutored some of my players over the years in Algebra II, Pre-Calc, and Calculus.
I am familiar with both the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) and the Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB). The ASVAB is used by all of the military services to qualify for enlisted positions, while the ASTB is used by the Navy for officer programs and the Marine Corps and the Coast Guard for officer flight programs.
I took the ASVAB when I was in 10th grade and received scores (in percentile) of Verbal-96, Math-97, Perceptual Speed-22 (I was a slow reader), Mechanical-98, Trade Technical-87, and Academic Ability-98.
I tutor the ASTB at the United States Naval Academy. In March 2010, I was hired by Barron's Educational Series as an Independent Contractor to review their Military Flight Aptitude Tests book for a future edition.
I have a BS in General Engineering from the United States Naval Academy. I passed the Maryland Engineer in Training (EIT) exam. I currently tutor Statics at the Naval Academy.
For two years I worked in the Center for Academic Excellence at the United States Naval Academy. During part of that time that time, I was a Learning Skills Instructor and taught topics such as Time Management, Note Taking, Effective Reading, and Test Taking.
I am an experienced volleyball coach, having coached high school volleyball for 9 years, 4 years as the Varsity Asst Coach and 5 years as the JV Head Coach. I also coached club volleyball for two years for the 16 and under team of the BAVA club. I have been affiliated with both the Men's and Women's Naval Academy Volleyball teams and worked the Naval Academy Volleyball Camp for 3 years. I played volleyball competitively for 20 years, both indoor and sand.
