I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Michigan Technological University (class of 1983). I am a Quality Control Engineer/CNC Lathe Programmer-Operator for a local Grand Rapids, Michigan tool & die shop where I have worked for over 26 years. I have helped tutor several apprentices over the years with their trigonometry and geometry classes (2 fields that are used a lot in this industry). I use trig and geometry on a daily basis and can relate these subjects to everyday life. Math has always been "fun" for me and I have a thorough enough understanding of these subjects that I can teach others in ways that are easy to understand and, hopefully, make it fun for them as well.
