Prior to becoming a teacher, I was a computer software engineer. I graduated from Wayne State University with M.S. degree in electrical and computer engineering and I worked as a computer software engineer for many years. Part of the electrical and computer engineering degree’s requirements was to take high levels of mathematics courses so I am also able to teach college level mathematics.

I have experience tutoring elementary school through college level math.

During my school years, high school through college, I tutored relatives, friends, and classmates. I continued tutoring privately after graduation and until now. All my students have had different ability levels and learning styles. So I have been using different learning strategies with different students to help them meet their individual goals and improve their study skills.

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.

ACT Math

The ACT math sections cover material taught in middle school and high school math classes. The test includes topics from pre-algebra (23%), elementary algebra (17%), intermediate algebra (15%), coordinate geometry (15%), plane geometry (23%), and trigonometry (7%)

All of the Math questions follow the same basic, multiple-choice format. The students are given 60 minutes to answer 60 questions.
Practicing and reviewing are the most important strategies for doing well on the ACT Math Test.

Algebra 1

Typically, Algebra 1 covers the fundamental concepts of algebra, including exponents and radicals, linear equations and inequalities, ratio and proportion, systems of linear equations, factoring quadratics, complex numbers, completing the square, and the quadratic formula.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 covers quadratic equations, graphing, complex numbers, functions, sequences and series, probability, exponents and logarithms, and an introduction to trigonometry.

Calculus

I am a certified math teacher with more than 25 years experience in tutoring all levels of high school and college mathematics, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, as well as ACT/SAT preparation.

Geometry

The study of geometry includes the the following topics: both two and three dimensional shapes, congruence, similarity, transformations and the relationships between geometric shapes. It also includes proofs.

Prealgebra

The purpose of Prealgebra is to prepare the student for the study of algebra. It introduces the concept of variables in the equations instead of just numbers. It also provides a solid understanding of basic arithmetic, especially fractions, which is a good foundation for algebra.
Prealgebra covers the topics of integers, fractions, decimals factors, exponents, solving linear equations and inequalities, ratio and proportion, and graphing linear functions. It also covers geometry topics and some statistics and probability

Precalculus

I am experienced in tutoring precalculus since I was in college. Precalculus covers a variety mathematical problems, from algebra to trigonometry and beyond.

Usually the students come to a precalculus class familiar with the basic arithmetic, algebra, and geometry concepts. The goal of precalculus is to connect those concepts with the higher-order mathematical problems that are part of calculus.


SAT Math

I have more than 25 years experience in tutoring all levels of high school and college mathematics, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, as well as ACT/SAT preparation.

Trigonometry

I have more than 25 years' experience in tutoring all levels of high school and college mathematics, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, as well as ACT/SAT preparation.
