I have a Ph.D. in Engineering, with a Minor in Mathematics, and spent 30 years solving real-world problems using computers and software. I have taught math at the community college level, and I volunteered as an adult literacy tutor. I am able to make difficult concepts easier by explaining them at a level appropriate to the student, and I have lots of patience. Over the years I have worked with my nephews and nieces to help them to improve their skills in algebra and calculus, and also with middle-aged and elderly friends and family members who needed help with using computers and software programs, including MS Office products.
