Hello,

I am an information technology professional who also conducts tutoring and teaches as an adjunct math professor during my off-hour time.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and a Master's Degree in Operations Research. I have the pleasure of being a Mathematics adjunct professor, teaching college coursework in calculus/pre-calculus and Algebra, statistics, quantitative analysis and business math. I also have WyzAnt experience tutoring high school students in algebra and geometry. I am a very patient instructor with an easy going, professional demeanor. I do not feel professionally satisfied unless my students fully internalize the subject matter at hand. I do my best work in a 1:1 setting.

I am also a retired Navy Captain (O-6), new to the Houston area.

Regards and Best

Alvin

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Discrete Math

To whom it may concern,

Please add Discrete Math to my list of qualified subjects. I am a classically trained Mathematician degreed from the United States Air Force Academy (B.S - Applied Mathematics) and received a Master of Science degree from the Naval Post Graduate School (M.S. Operations Research). In the past 20 years, I have used my training to teach as a mathematics adjunct professor and tutor students in both linear algebra and discrete math. I am well qualified to tutor these subjects both in theory and practice.

Respectfully submitted,

Alvin D. S.

Awesome! — Mr. Alvin is a awesome tutor. He was a perfect fit for my son. He was very patient and was able to brake the Geometry down for my son to have a clear understanding of the material. My son liked Mr. Alvin so much that he was asking for him to come instead of me asking my son if the tutor was needed. Mr. Alvin was able to move my son through the difficult unit of study and my son's grade went up by ...
