I am a professional computer nerd who is a network engineer/network team lead by day. At night, and during my free time, I take great pleasure in helping others achieve their learning and educational goals. There is no greater feeling of fulfillment than seeing the “light bulb turn on” for a student on a given topic. I am a native Albuquerquean, a graduate of St. Pius X High School, and a graduate of the University of New Mexico (WOOF, WOOF , WOOF). My undergraduate degree is in Computer Engineering and my Master’s degree is in Business Administration with Management of Information Systems and Information Assurance Concentrations.

My educational and professional background in Engineering and Business has provided me the opportunity to keep my math and computer skills sharp as the years go by. Consequently, these are the areas that I concentrate on during my tutoring endeavors. I take equal pleasure in solving a set of algebraic equations via the substitution method and creating an excel worksheet using complex excel functions (I told you I was a nerd). I have been tutoring classmates, family members, friends, and those referred to me by family members and friends on and off for the last 14 years. I have enjoyed it so much that I have decided to tutor in a more formal manner and make a side business out of it, which has led me to WyzAnt.

As a father of 8 (Ages 18 months to 15 years) I understand the importance of a child's education and get plenty of opportunities to ply my tutoring craft at home as well as with my students. I do not have a single method for tutoring students as each of us learns differently. My goal is to help students identify the methods that make learning easiest (and most enjoyable) for them. The truth is, even for a tutor the learning never stops, I am constantly learning myself. For example, I have learned new methods of solving problems from several of my math students, and I am constantly discovering new ways to help students learn. I look forward to continuing the learning adventures with you and/or your student.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is a subject that has confused and confounded students since it's inception. However, like other areas in math, once the basic building blocks of Algebra have been established, new topics become exponentially more manageable and even enjoyable to learn.

I have tutored Algebra (all levels) for the last 14 years. It is without a doubt my favorite subject to tutor. As with other topics, I first like to perform a grade based assessment to determine a student's current strengths and weaknesses in Algebra. I will then develop lessons to keep the strengths sharp and shore up the weaknesses. This will include a combination of good old fashioned pen and paper work via one on one sessions, as well as integration of computer technology and demonstrations into the learning experience.

Elementary Math

As both a tutor and a father of 8 I have quite a bit of experience with the advanced nature of math in elementary schools today. Times sure have changed since we were young haven't they? Today's children are learning advanced topics far sooner than previous generations and in no subject is this more evident than in math. The good news is that building a strong foundation at this stage in learning can and will benefit a student into adulthood.

When tutoring elementary age students in math I first like to perform a grade based assessment to determine the student's current strengths and weaknesses. Then I will use a combination of traditional teaching methods (concept introduction and lots of practice) and non-traditional teaching methods (think practical applications and games) to help a student master the various topics they will cover.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is the point in a student's (or young mathematician's) career that bridges the gap between the basic arithmetic of elementary math and moves into more advanced topics such as order of operations, exponents, algebraic equations, etc. It is not uncommon for students to initially struggle in this area. I myself struggled in this area as a young student (a loooong time ago). However, thanks to a great teacher who lit a fire for math inside of me that continues to burn until this day I was able to master these topics and continue down a road of success in Math. My goal is to help light that same fire for you and/or your student.

Outstanding tutor for computer programming languages! — Beau has done an outstanding job as my tutor with the Java Programming I class I was taking. He was able to help me understand very difficult concepts in this programming language with clear and concise explanations which allowed me to successfully write complex applications for the course assignments. I would highly recommend Beau as a tutor for anyone who is taking a computer programming class. ...
