My most important credential as a tutor is that I have raised two sons who have done well in school and were accepted at quality colleges.
With my own kids, I've always taken a Socratic approach to education, allowing the student to find the answers on his own, being guided but not spoon-fed by the teacher.
Mathematics has always been one of my strong suits and I majored in Applied Mathematics in college. Applied Mathematics led to Computer Science, in which I have a Master's Degree. I have worked as a computer professional for over 30 years.
My passion, on the other hand, is music. Although my only formal music education was two years of piano lessons as a child, I have been playing guitar for over 40 years, and electric bass for 30. Through my guitar playing, I became interested in the theory behind the chords, which led me back to the piano keyboard.
