I have helped high school students and adult learners do better in algebra classes and placement tests than they expected to do. I am also good at helping with math phobia if that is a problem.
I have coached elementary, junior high, and high school chess teams. My USCF rating in the mid 1800s puts me in the top 10% of all tournament players in the US. I have been playing tournament chess since 1972 and understand the history and culture of the game as well at moves and strategy.
As a graduate student at the University of Texas - Austin I was a teaching assistant for differential equations. I ran the class lab, which basically was me answering questions from students about techniques and concepts they did not understand from the professor's lecture and demonstrating how to do various problems they had difficulty with. I also made an 'A' when I took the course as an undergrad.
