I am recently retired, after 39 years of service in the Aerospace Engineering profession. Over those years, I have held a number of significant technical positions as well as leadership roles. In my most recent position, I served as the System Engineering Director of a major program with over 400 personnel.

I also have significant experience tutoring my two children and a number of their classmates in mathematics and science, enabling their successful progression through high school and college.

My most significant traits are the passion, dedication and personal commitment I have demonstrated throughout my career to achieve successful results. These traits along with the ability to communicate with students at a level that will help them comprehend and retain the subject matter should provide for an effective learning experience.

I encourage you to checkout some of the math answers I have recently posted to questions on the WyzAnt web site.
