My college and post-graduate training included honors level BS/MS/PhD work in engineering, math, physics and chemistry.
I began my tutoring experience during college, teaching grammar and high school students math and the sciences. Of all the mathematics disciplines, I think that Algebra is the most important foundation, and one of the toughest to teach and to learn! Each of the sciences offer a different challenge, but I've found that a solid math background makes all of them more accessible.
As I progressed into grad school I also worked with undergrads in science and engineering, and I taught engineering and physics labs.
A different career path permitted only limited teaching for a while - until recent times when I have returned full time to once again share with my students what I have learned and applied. I missed this and am glad to be back.
I believe that my greatest tutoring strength, honed through years of training and guiding my students and my work teammates, is my desire to really know and understand their needs and drive toward their success.
I feel that I am a very good, mature teacher with endless patience based on sincere caring for each student, plus listening closely to parent's input and understanding their desire to see their kids do very well.
