I majored in engineering and minored in math
. My career was in telecom/computers with extensive mathematical analytics. I tutor almost any college and high school math course. I get a thrill in watching the light turn on students' heads when they see how easy math can be once it's explained properly to them. I hear "My child has this or that learning problem..." but I've not met one yet that can't improve. I instill a lot of CONFIDENCE IN MATH in them.
I've always tutored my 2 daughters and their friends for years in high school and college. I taught at private schools and SMU 5 years in math and SAT prep
. I've tutored every kind of math for 5-6 years in this area also. I aced the teacher math tests and can get you through any kind of problem you may be having.
I don't teach techniques but need to understand how your teacher wants you to work a problem. Believe me, even in college, when you hit that wall and nothing seems to work, just having someone explain what you missed in the previous lessons or missed in your note taking is all it takes.
I've tutored students in at least a dozen different online universities, some straight forward, some very tricky and not so easy. You really have to know the fundamentals in these online courses because they use simple trick questions a lot.
I also have increased student's ACT
scores significantly so they could get into the schools of their choice. This takes several sessions concentrating on some deficiencies they may have with Algebra
as well as particularly how approach SAT problems, which are nothing like homework. I have a lot of fundamental practice problems for you depending on the topic you need may be weak in.
I don't charge extra for 2 students, but will for more than 2. I will charge more for mileage greater than 10 miles from my home and/or if tolls are necessary.

If you are taking an online course, or have homework assignments that are on your computer, I have a method where I can view your computer, with your permission, while you are online with me, and see and even control your desktop from my mouse, at no cost
to you other than my time.
We can talk over the phone, share desktops, as I can show you things from my desktop too, and get the...
Recently I began tutoring someone who needed last minute assistance before a big test. We agreed to try doing it over the telephone and it worked marvelously. Because Algebra I is fairly straight forward compared to Pre-Calc and others, I was read the problem and worked a couple of examples, then listened while the person read how they working the problems. It worked great.
