I am a Certified Math Teacher that taught for over 25 years. I also have an Electrical Engineering Degree with a Master's in Computer Science. I have been tutoring and teaching very successfully for years. My personality allows me to relate very well with teenagers and get the most out of them. I love to teach/tutor math and fully understand why students do not comprehend mathematical concepts.
I have taught SAT classes for a long time as well and know the methods to achieving high scores on all three portions of the exam. I make sure that students understand why certain operations are performed and the theory behind them to help reinforce these concepts for future use. Math is the one subject that allows multiple methods and paths to obtain the correct answer and that needs to be encouraged. Patience is also needed to give students the confidence they need to attack problems that intimidate them. I used to own a Kumon Math Center which focuses on the basics to help students correct basic facts that they never absorbed in school. I have taken math courses ranging through Calculus I, II, and III along with differential equations while pursuing an electrical engineering degree. I am very patient and relate well to all types of teenagers, since I have so many of my own.
