I have tutored hundreds of students in math, science and engineering over the past 25 years. I worked in the BYU Math Lab to pay my way through college where I earned a Master of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a minor in mathematics. I have even published a book and software package used by several universities on numerical analysis and the C programming language.
I tutor all levels of math, from prealgebra through calculus 3 and beyond. AP Calculus AB/BC, AP Physics, and Pre-AP Precalculus are my specialties. I also do a lot of tutoring for SAT math. My students' best SAT math score is 730 out of 800.
I love teaching students that really want to learn and have set a goal, but are either behind or are not connecting with their teachers. Math can be easy and fun when you understand the key concepts.
My teaching style is to ask my students focused questions that cause them to think, then determine the correct answers for themselves. I then like to show multiple ways to solve the same problem and how to verify the answer as being correct. This is the difference between a 'B' student and an 'A' student. I also believe in teaching how the covered math concepts apply to our everyday lives.
In addition to math and science I also tutor chess and the C/C++ computer programming language. I tutor all of my students from my Home office in McKinney, TX.
