My name is Israel. I am a father of 3 boys and 1 girl. Three have finished college and are working, the other is in college. I was a teacher for 7 years and my favorite subjects are Math and science.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from Prairie View A & M University. I am currently working as a Systems Analyst at Insight Global in Houston.
I have had experience tutoring all levels of education. While in college I tutored college students in Math, and Engineering courses. In the past couple of years I have tutored grade level Reading and Math subjects. My method of tutoring includes (1) coming to the level of the student to understand and determine his/her strength and weaknesses on the subject; (2) carefully and gradually explain the subject step by step; (3) repeat if necessary for clarification; (4) ask the student to repeat what has been explained; (4) answer the questions he/she might have then ask the student to do some exercises on his/her own without assistance and grade his/her work. If need be, I will repeat myself on areas of weakness. I have taught Math and Reading to group of students that are now graduates.
I enjoy one on one, interactive or internet based teaching styles with my students; these include the use of visual aids. I believe that whichever method is used, a good student/teacher relationship is very important.
My caring heart and concerns for children everywhere motivate me to work with students and their parents towards their children’s educational success and eventually their success in life. As I have helped my own to success, I am willing to help other students to succeed.
If you are looking for a competent tutor and serious about your educational success and have the “I can” attitude knowing that in America “sky is the limit” contact me and I will work with you. My interests are sports, fishing and traveling.
