About Sheldon

I have done tutoring since high school. I have enjoyed mathematics and like to help others. Over the years, I have done private tutoring and have also served in the tutoring center of a community college when I was living in the Washington, D. C., area. I changed careers from computer science to education and have been in the community college and university classroom teaching developmental mathematics (basic math, pre-algebra, and algebra). Over the years, I have been able to analyze better ways to be successful in math. I think that students will be able to enjoy my perspective in explaining difficult concepts, and I look forward to working with you. I have done tutoring since high school.
