I am a recently retired engineer with a passion for math and engineering and an even stronger passion for helping students struggling with math. I have been mentoring young engineers (in math and engineering) during my 34 years at Detroit Edison's Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant. For the last 3 years, I have been tutoring math for high school, college, and adult students. My extreme patience and understanding provides a comfortable learning environment for all individuals I work with. I have a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering so I am comfortable tutoring most any type of math, from basic to advanced.

Algebra 1

Algebra is the foundation for advanced Mathematics. It is a very important subject, especially to those considering a career in engineering or physics. I have many years of experience tutoring math and engineering to high school, college and adult students. If you will allow me to work with you, I am confident I can improve your knowledge of Algebra by sharing my experience, knowledge, and genuine passion for math.

Mechanical Engineering

I am a recently retired engineer with over 34 years of experience applying math to solve thermal-hydraulic problems at the Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant. Working on these problems, allowed me to become proficient in the following subject areas: thermodynamics, heat transfer, compressible and incompressible flow, calculus, differential equations, and numerical analysis.

I have been mentoring young engineers (in math and engineering) during a large portion of my career at Detroit Edison and I look forward to the opportunity of sharing my knowledge and experience to educate and motivate students interested in math, science, or engineering.
